The easy garden smoothie is a healthy way for you and your family to make use of all the extra produce harvested from your garden.
What is a garden smoothie made of? Garden smoothies are made from ingredients that are typically found in home gardens. The ingredients may be harvested fresh or purchased from your local farmer’s market or grocery store’s produce section. They may include everything from leafy greens and tomatoes to carrots, beets, cauliflower, and avocado.
There is no right or wrong way to make an easy garden smoothie; just throw together whatever you happen to have on hand/that needs to be used at the time!
Read on below and discover exactly what we put in our own version of the easy garden smoothie!
Preparations & Instructions
Again, there is no wrong way or right way to prepare a green smoothie; mix anything with a bunch of veggies and they usually turn green.
Here’s our recipe:
- Prepare your blender or smoothie maker (make sure it’s nice and sanitized)
- Clean your produce and thoroughly rinse it with cool water
- Add each ingredient into the blender, secure the lid in place, and blend for a few short seconds
- Work your way through each ingredient and then give it a few more bursts of blending for good measure
We like to use spinach, carrots, and cucumbers as the base for our easy garden smoothies, along with whatever other veggies we happen to have at our disposal at the time. Fruit, however, shouldn’t be blended into these green smoothies as mixing fruits and veggies may cause toxins that can wreak havoc on different areas of your health.
