Delicious Green Smoothie

This smoothie is packed with nutrients and fiber, and tastes phenomenal!  Great for breakfast or a midday snack.  On evenings when I am teaching yoga, I have it for dinner so I can feel satisfied before class and still feel comfortable enough to teach.

Green Smoothie

Please excuse the rough measurements.  That’s just how I roll in the kitchen.  It’s fun to experiment with the proportions that work best for you!




– 1/2 a banana


– 1/2 an avocado


– chunk of cucumber (about 1/4 of a regular size cucumber)


– handful of kale


– handful of swiss chard


– piece of fresh ginger


– juice of 1/2 a lemon


– ice


– about 3/4 cups of coconut water, depending on how thick you like it


Place all ingredients in a high power blender.  Blend until smooth and enjoy!

    I’ve made a similar smoothie using apple juice instead of coconut water, but this actually sounds better. Thanks.
