Get your daily dose of dark leafy greens any time of day with this delicious green smoothie. Ground flaxseed adds omega-3s. Pour any extra into a freezer-pop mold and have it later as a frozen green smoothie pop.

I believe that health comes with healthy food. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the prices for that value. I believe I’ve found the solution here

My first green smoothie

I love this recipe, it's delicious and i'm impressed for my first go at a green smoothie. It makes me want to try others too. The consistency I think will depend on your blender. I used a magic bullet for mine and had to first blend it, then switch to the puree blade to finish it off, but it came out really smooth and a pretty shade of green that's not off putting at all. It tastes a lot like strawberries and bananas to me and my 3 year old(even though there's no strawberries in it). Drinking it, it's not too thick and not chunky (again, it probably depends on the blender you use). I believe if my 3 year old loves this then probably any kid would if they could get past the look of it. Really great thank you!

tastes delicious, super easy to make, not expensive for ingredients

Does any one else's look like vomit I don't know what I did wrong?! It tastes good but unless I close my eyes its hard to stomach..

That's why i drink mine out

That's why i drink mine out of a glass with a cover and a straw so I don't have to look at the weird color.

I would say 99% of my

I would say 99% of my smoothies are not attractive looking, but that is not important! As long as it's healthy and palatable that is all that matters.

One Word - Delicious

This was my first green smoothie. My husband and I enjoyed it tremendously. I realized too late that we were out of orange juice - so I squeezes a blood orange and a tangerine (that was all I had) and supplemented a little mire liquid with water to get 1/2 cup. My banannas were very ripe. We loved it!

Wonderful ingredients and no dairy

Great smoothie! I used unsweetened coconut milk instead of the water and it was very yummy. My teenager son and 4 year old twins loved it. I would probably add more flax seed next time.
