This Green Apple Smoothie Recipe is made with almond milk, apple cider vinegar, apples, bananas, kale, and blended into green perfection.
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 green apple, cored
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 1/2 cups kale
- 1 scoop of collagen of your choice
Place all of the ingredients in your blender and process until smooth. For best practice, throw in the solids first and then pour in the liquids.
- Use fresh and ripe ingredients: The key to a great green apple smoothie is using fresh, ripe ingredients. Choose green apples that are firm and crisp, and make sure any other fruits or vegetables you use are at their peak freshness.
- Use a high-powered blender: To get a smooth and creamy texture, you'll need a powerful blender. A high-powered blender will be able to break down the ingredients into a smooth consistency without leaving any chunks or pulp.
- Add liquid gradually: When adding liquid to your smoothie, start with a small amount and add more as needed. You can always add more liquid, but it's harder to thicken a smoothie that's too thin.
- Experiment with different greens: While kale is a popular choice for green smoothies, you can also experiment with other leafy greens like spinach, collard greens, or Swiss chard. Each green will have a slightly different flavor and nutrient profile.
- Add healthy fats and protein: To make your smoothie more filling, consider adding healthy fats and protein. Nut butters, Greek yogurt, and chia seeds are all great options that can help keep you full and satisfied.
- Sweeten naturally: If you find that your green apple smoothie is too tart, try sweetening it with natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or dates. I love using a ripe banana to add sweetness. These will add sweetness without the added sugar of processed sweeteners.
