All of the green smoothies I have made up until this point have been on the sweeter side. Because I’m not always in the mood for sweet in the AM, I like the tartness this smoothie offers. If you like your smoothies to be more on the sweet side, add agave nectar or honey to this one. I liked it without. (pucker)
In other news, my favorite green smoothies are those that are made with an avocado – they tend to have the best consistency.
This Tart Green Apple Smoothie is made with the following ingredients:
1 green apple
a handful of spinach
1/4 cup coconut water
1/2 lime, juiced
4-5 ice cubes
To make this smoothie, put the coconut water and spinach in the blender first and puree the spinach THEN add all of the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
