While I love a good smoothie, most of the time I choose to eat my food. Why blend it all up when you can enjoy the individual flavors of the berries, nuts, greens, and whatever else you are putting in there. I have an especially hard time putting a perfectly ripe avocado into a smoothie–I would rather have it on my toast, in my guacamole, or just straight up!

But that said, sometimes, there is nothing like a good smoothie. Whether I need a quick way to add greens and fiber to my day or am craving greens after a weekend of traveling or holiday parties. Smoothies are also a great way to get greens, probiotics, and chia seeds into my family.

If your kids (and husband!) are like mine and don’t want a green-colored smoothie you can easily add a handful of greens to a chocolate banana milkshake or a berry smoothie and they probably won’t even notice. Or, have them help you make the smoothie. They are more likely to try it, even if it’s just a sip.

Need some recipe ideas, check out my smoothie guide, wild blueberry and pear smoothie, and strawberry squash smoothie. Making a smoothie bowl is also fun, and my kids definitely love the added crunch factor in this one.

But for days when you need a tasty green smoothie, here is one of my go-to’s…

This green smoothie is perfect for those days when you need some added greens and fiber to get you back on track. It's also a great way to use up extra kale. Want it a touch sweeter? Add some frozen mango or pineapple instead of the squash. Or try adding a date. Enjoy!
