Vegan green smoothies – General rules.

Smoothie is our preferred quick snack. It’s easy to make, you can use leftovers, and it tastes really good. Children love them.

We suggest to include at least a dark leafy green as the main ingredient. Vegetables are super nutrient-rich. One banana is also necessary for a good taste. You can use almond milk, orange juice or water. It’s really a matter of taste. Experiment. Use whatever ingredients your children love the most.

The key to a tasteful smoothie is the fruits though. Prefer to include sugary ripe fruits, as they taste the best. Peaches, oranges, pears, figs, pineapples, apples, and grapes can be really sweet. Children will love this smoothie. Adults too…

We also suggest adding some grated flaxseed. Along with walnuts are the best sources of plant-based omega-3 sources. Whenever possible, we put them into the smoothie. It has a neutral taste. You can put grated flaxseeds in the chocolate smoothie, as well. It won’t taste differently.
