How To Make The Tastiest Green Smoothie

You probably know you should be eating your greens, and you may realize that a green smoothie can give you all the benefits you need in one easy drink.

But chances are you’ve had a run-in with a green smoothie that didn’t end well before. You know the type: a gluggy goop that’s more brown than green, tasting a bit like overcooked cabbage, lawn clippings and dirt, all mixed together.

Here’s your chance to turn it around. We’ll explain how you can make an easy and delicious green smoothie that not only tastes great, but gives you even more health benefits than other green smoothies out there. So, drink up, let’s go!

Why You Should Start Your Day With A Green Smoothie

Let’s start with an even simpler question: Why do you need to eat (or in this case, drink) your greens in the first place?

The chlorophyll in green foods creates the foundation for a healthy diet. Chlorophyll helps our bodies maintain a healthy pH level, and also provides incredible nutrients in the form of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

You may have heard that the darker green the vegetable gets, the better it is for you. Take spinach and kale, for example. These dark green superfoods contain Vitamin K, which plays a crucial role in helping us to absorb Vitamin D, yet doesn’t exist in many other food sources.

These aren’t the only vitamins that green vegetables contain. Most green vegetables are a source of B vitamins (helping to boost our energy, break down food, and form new blood cells), as well as Vitamins C and E, which are antioxidants and help protect against cell damage that may lead to disease.

Don’t forget that they contain minerals too, such as magnesium, zinc and selenium, which support nerve function and the immune system.

And that’s not all! Greens are an important source of fiber, helping you to maintain a healthy balance of gut bacteria, as well as cholesterol levels. Fiber also helps you to feel satisfied and full after meals.

A Greens Supplement Is An Easy Way To Get Your Greens

Now you know you that you should be doing your best to get your daily dose of greens. But if you think you’re going to be spending ages in the kitchen each morning preparing the perfect smoothie, think again! This is where a greens supplement powder is the perfect quick fix for your nutritional needs.

A greens supplement is a super-concentrated source of greens and all their nutrients. It typically contains green vegetables, and often other ingredients such as wheat grass and alfalfa.

It’s recommended that on average, adults should be eating at least 3 cups of vegetables per day. And while we’re not suggesting a greens supplement can completely replace eating whole fruits and vegetables, we know that hitting this target can be hard to fit in to a busy schedule.

There’s another factor too. Due to modern agricultural practices, our soil isn’t as nutrient rich as it used to be. This means that even if you’re strict about getting your 3 cups of greens a day, you may still not be getting the full range of nutrients you need.

This is where a greens supplement can support, by fortifying your diet with additional essential nutrients.

Athletic Greens Powder Tastes Great In A Green Smoothie

We’re well aware that not all greens supplements taste delicious. That’s why at Athletic Greens, we spent more than 10 years refining our greens powder to provide the highest nutritional value, while still tasting the best it possibly could.

Our greens powder contains the big green grasses, sea algaes and superfoods found in most greens supplements. But the difference is, we don’t stop there.

We have 75 whole food ingredients in total, including fruits, vegetables, prebiotics and probiotics, to help you improve across 5 different areas of your health. We also added a little stevia, to give it a sweetness straight from nature.

We stand by our greens powder being the tastiest out there - even just mixed with water it is delicious! But you can supercharge it by mixing it into a nutritious green smoothie.

Frequently Asked Questions

Did you know caffeine may interfere with the absorption of B vitamins? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back on that one! For best results, we recommend you take one serving of Athletic Greens first thing in the morning, every day. Consistency is key, plus you’ll be getting a good dose of riboflavin before you start on your morning coffee.


Our formula isn’t just a bunch of green grasses. It contains 75 carefully selected ingredients which support your health in 5 ways. We spent over 10 years tweaking our formula to ensure we could include foods that might not land so naturally in your diet - like seaweed and algae - but still tasted great. Not to mention our superfood powder is manufactured in New Zealand in a facility that exceeds all minimum standards required when manufacturing nutritional supplements.


Our greens powder is naturally sweet, thanks to the addition of powdered fruits, as well as stevia, a natural herb. This means we haven’t had to add any sugar or artificial sweeteners - our powder truly is “natural”. It also means it mixes deliciously well with fruits and vegetables to make a truly nutritious green smoothie.


Even if you’re strict about getting the recommended amount of greens each day, you’re not necessarily getting the full range of nutritional benefits. Thanks to modern farming practices, our soil isn’t as nutrient rich these days, and the nutrient value that a vegetable carries can vary massively due to where it was grown. We’ve done the hard work for you - creating a greens powder that has the perfect balance of essential nutrients. By mixing Athletic Greens powder in to your green smoothie every morning, you are guaranteeing your health.
