Some people don’t feel that smoothie recipes are necessary. There are smoothie masters, who simply throw different ingredients in a blender and a magical, flavorful creation is the result. Some people, however, are less familiar with produce combinations. It can take time to learn what fruits and vegetables play well with each other, in regards to flavor. And then there are those who simply don’t care if a smoothie tastes like lawn clippings.
We’d rather not drink the juice of fresh cut grass, which is why we like to bring you flavorful smoothies that are love at first sip. That’s the case with this smoothie, which has both sweet and tart flavors. Golden kiwi is juicy and sweet and green apples have a classically tart bite. The banana gives the smoothie a wonderfully creamy texture and adds another layer of sweetness. You don’t really taste the spinach, which is why it’s an excellent leafy green to incorporate in smoothies, especially if you are new to green smoothies. Spinach is naturally rich in protein, iron, fiber, and magnesium, making it an excellent addition to your smoothie. Don’t fear the green!
