Green Apple Smoothies are a tasty, refreshing start to your day. But commercially-made smoothies may have added sugars - and they're not easy on the wallet. So we came up with this homemade Green Apple Smoothie. It's packed with healthy ingredients like coconut water, spinach, green apples, bananas, avocados, and pineapple. So it's pretty hydrating and has a nice balance of tartness, sweetness, tanginess, and creaminess. For our leafy vegetable, we opted to use spinach as it's less bitter than kale. However, if you only have kale, feel free to use that instead. You may need to add more bananas to balance kale's bitterness. Besides being packed with vitamins and minerals, this smoothie is also packed with fiber. One serving provides almost 70% of your daily fiber needs!

What fruits go with green apples?

Green apples go well with sweeter fruits like pears, bananas, strawberries, and cantaloupes.

When is the best time to drink green smoothies?

Any time of the day is an excellent time to drink green smoothies, but having a green smoothie in the morning is best. That's because having a green smoothie is a great way to start your day and get in your veggies. This sets the tone for the rest of the day. 

What happens when you start drinking green smoothies?

You may notice your bowel movements improving when you start drinking green smoothies. That's because green smoothies contain a ton of fiber. In addition, the dark green leafy veggies in your green smoothies also give you a boost of vitamins A, C, E, and K and minerals such as iron, potassium, and calcium. These nutrients boost your immune system, give you glowing skin, help your blood clot, boost energy levels, and help maintain healthy blood pressure and strong bones.

How often should you drink green smoothies?

It's best to drink green smoothies just once a day. That's because even though green smoothies are healthy, they can be calorie-dense.
