Green Smoothie

This healthy and refreshing Paleo green smoothie recipe combines fruits like apples and pears with vibrant greens, with flax seeds added for texture and greater nutrition. It is endlessly adaptable to your own taste preferences. Try using chia seeds in place of the flax seeds, or adding berries, carrots, cubes of melon, and extra ginger or lemon juice. Cucumber used in place of the water adds freshness, and coconut milk or nut butter will make it creamier. If you enjoyed this Green Smoothie recipe, try our Green Smoothie Bowls recipe next time.
