Top Four Tips for a Fruitless Green Smoothie

#1 Avocados are a great way to add creaminess to the smoothie instead of the banana.

#2 Berry flavored green drinks add a sweet fruit taste without the fruit sugar. This are a must!

#3 Use lemon juice! This add flavor to cover up the green taste.

#4 Use plenty of ice. At least have enough ice to cool the smoothie.

As you can see… I have been trying out blended salads. Blended salads are pretty much smoothies made with all veggies. They look like a green smoothie, but taste much different. Add the garlic and onion gradually! You don’t want to be walking around smelling like a pizza parlor.

Hopefully, our green smoothie testing shows you that you can make a great green smoothie without or with little fruit!
