Robyn’s Notes

Most everyone loves a good fruit smoothies, but I’m here to say that green smoothies can be just as delicious! Plus, if you struggle to get in vegetables, a green smoothie is such an easy way to solve that problem.

I’ve created some absolutely delicious smoothies that don’t taste like grass, thanks to naturally sweet fruits, simple spices, and fun flavors like matcha and pineapple. You won’t find just spinach smoothies here, either! I’ve got smoothies with romaine, arugula (trust me), cucumber, and more.

And, if you’re looking for more time-saving smoothie recipes, check out this collection of energizing fruit smoothie recipes, as well as this round-up of protein-packed smoothies. Yum!
