    1. Spinach: When I think of a veggie smoothie, spinach is the first vegetable to come to mind. It’s the most common veggie used in smoothies so it’s not really a shock to say add some spinach! It’s full of nutrients like vitamins A & K and minerals like iron and calcium. Check out these recipes for a spinach smoothie with bananas and a berry spinach smoothie.

    2. Kale: Not only can you use your kale to make chips, but you can also use it in your smoothies! Kale contains vitamins A, K, C and the anti-cancer chemical, sulforaphane. Blend it up with some fruit for a healthy treat. Try it out with mango and peaches or pineapple and coconut.

    3. Carrots: I find that I can easily add carrots to a fruit smoothie and not even notice them in there! I add a couple baby carrots to frozen berries, half a banana and a cup of orange juice and blend until smooth. Carrots are a rich source of fiber and high in vitamins A & K. Try out some carrot smoothie recipes from Around My Family Table and

    4. Beets: Instead of using your beets to make borscht, blend them up for a nutritious breakfast drink! Beets are a high source of folate, manganese and fiber and taste great mixed with berries. Check out this recipe for a Beet n’ Berry Smoothie or this decadent Red Velvet Beet Smoothie.

    5. Romaine: Take that leftover romaine lettuce in your fridge and whip up a quick smoothie. Romaine contains lots of antioxidants and is a high source of vitamin A, C & K. Make yourself a Layered Smoothie.

      1. try it … you will be surprised. I never thought I would like Kale in a smoothy. Now I regularly drink: kale, cucumber, avacado, banana, liquid (either water, OJ, or almond milk) … love it!

      I haven’t added veggies, I don’t have a good enough blender to make them find, but would like to try them in it.
