This formula yields about 32 ounces, which is enough for two people. I like to make one batch, drink half, and then turn the rest info smoothie pops (see my breakfast list). Inspired by @dev's query.
  1. 2 cups leafy greens, washed and chopped

    This can be spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, chard, bok choy, collard greens, beet tops, or literally any other green leafy vegetable.
  2. 2 cups of liquid base

    Regular milk, soy, coconut, hemp, or almond milk (my all-time favorite is Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Milk), coconut water, juice (that last one is sometimes too sweet so consider diluting it with water first).
  3. 3 cups frozen fruit (chopped, if necessary)
    514261 d8c4aa0b df47 4b6f 917b 49e6a86d5c72
    Banana, mangoes, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, pineapple, guava, pomegranate seeds, and pretty much anything else you can think of.
  4. Add-ins

    Any of the following are good additions: 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1-2 tbsp almond or peanut butter, 1 tbsp hemp seeds, 2 tbsp protein powder, few shavings very dark chocolate or cacao nibs.
  5. To make, blend the greens and the liquid-base together for a full minute to break it down. Then add your fruit and any add-ins, if using, and blend for at least another 30 seconds, or until smooth.

  6. Bonus: put your smoothie in a cute to-go cup.
