1. Kale, Ginger and Cucumber Smoothie
This smoothie gives an amazing boost of energy and if you don’t like the taste of Kale you can just use spinach.
If the Kale is a little bit too potent for you in the beginning you can use a little extra honey to sweeten up - but don't worry, you'll soon be craving green smoothies and will begin to embrace all the different flavors they provide!
2. Apple & Peanut Butter Smoothie
A tablespoon of peanut butter adds a real richness of flavor to this delicious smoothie. Mango, peaches and orange juice also give it a real tropical flavor, so might be a good recipe for people trying to ease in to the world of green smoothies.
3. Brazilian Love Green Smoothie for Vegans
With coconut water, fresh lime juice and mango chunks – the exotic flavors will really give you a spring in your step for the entire day.
4. Hidden Greens Smoothie
Beat the mid-week fatigue by starting your day off with this awesome smoothie that will have you bouncing round all day!
Spinach and kale both contain massive amounts of vitamins A, C and K. They are a good source of minerals such as potassium, iron calcium and magnesium.In fact spinach and kale have much more calcium than milk and more iron than beef!

This is a great smoothie for adding nutrients and “superfoods” to as it has a really smooth texture.
Chia seeds are a really great for balancing your blood sugars (so really helpful for diabetics) and provide stores of energy for when you need it most.
