I'm pretty boring. I just throw in what we have around. Usually it is strawberries, banana, and kale or spinach, and then whatever other fruit we have around. I love adding grapes when they are in season. My best green smoothies always have grapes. Apples, kiwi, melon, or pears are other options. And I of course always add a bunch of "other" stuff. My smoothies always have chia seed, DHA, and either hemp milk or hemp seed.

Re: What are your favorite green smoothie recipes?

I did, kefir, a banana, a teaspoon of cocoa, 1/4 cup of oatmeal (ground up ahead of time) a scoop of peanut butter and a handful of spinach. It tasted like breakfast. Super yummy. It wasn't very chocolatey, so you might want to add more of that.

Kale, spinach and avocado. I mix them altogether with 3/4 cup evaporated milk and some ice cubes through the blender. Yummy!

We just tried this one and loved it. I forgot that it was suppose to be shareable though. DH had the whole thing himself, but I split mine with ds.

I use frozen berries, a banana, a scoop of frozen oj concentrate spinach and water
I blend the spinach and water first so it won't stick to the sides. And the frozen fruit makes it so there is no need for ice.
