A green smoothie is not only delicious and healthy, it can be your ideal breakfast as it’s speedy to make and will take you less time to prepare than cooking. Even if you aren’t ready to use leafy greens, you can make any fruit smoothie a green smoothie. Simply add cucumber, celery ribs, parsley, cilantro, basil, mint leaves, spirulina, sweet pea, or broccoli sprouts. Here are five simple, delectable green smoothie formulas.

1. Matcha Pear Green Protein Smoothie Recipe

Looking for a smoothie that will give you a boost of energy and help you recover after a strenuous workout? The matcha green tea in this recipe delivers a hit of caffeine, while spinach provides almost every vitamin and mineral under the sun. Pear not only sweetens the deal, but adds plenty of vitamin C and fiber (especially with the skin left on). The skin also has most of the fruit’s phytonutrients, so put that peeler away! Less work, more benefits.

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup spinach
1 pear, cored
1/2 teaspoon of matcha tea powder

Preparation

2. Apple-Kale Green Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are a great way to pack nutrients into one delicious drink, but they’re also usually full of fruit that can add a lot of sugar into your daily diet. This green smoothie recipe uses only one small Granny Smith, which contains less sugar than other varieties. Detoxifying cucumber, fibrous kale and a plant-based protein powder round it out into a fully nutritious and refreshing drink that can stand in for any meal.
