    Color:
    Baby greens of choice

Note: Notice how I don’t add sweetener to the recipes? I’ve stopped going to smoothie shops because so often I see them add a little bit of fruit, a whole lot of ice, and then sugar to make up the flavor difference. Just freeze your fruit from the get go. That way, they provide the sweet and the smooth, without watering the flavor down with ice. If you do need to add a touch of sweet, try stevia or drizzled honey to taste. Add small bits at a time and work up.
