Energy-Boosting Green Chlorophyll Smoothie

Eating your greens and adding a liquid chlorophyll supplement to your water are probably the easiest ways to add chlorophyll to your diet, but if drinking green water just isn’t your thing, then add chlorophyll to your next smoothie! This smoothie is not only packed with nutrients, it tastes great and always gives me an energy boost.

Ingredients
  • 2 large chard leaves
  • 1 kale leaf
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen spinach
  • 1/2 cup coconut or almond milk
  • 1 full dropper of liquid chlorophyll

It can be hard to get all the nutrients you need into your day. Adding a green smoothie to the start of your morning or as a snack is a quick and effective way to incorporate more vitamins and minerals into your diet.

More than just a healthy “on-the-go” option, a green smoothie like this one supports your immune system, is great for digestive health, and gives you an energy boost.

Here’s a little cheat sheet of what you get:

  • Coconut milk adds a dose of healthy fat.
  • Chard is high in vitamins K, A, and C. It also contains fiber, potassium, magnesium, and iron.
  • Spinach has vitamins K, A, and B6. It also has manganese, folate, and zinc.
  • Kale is high in vitamin K, A, and C, as well as folate and fiber.
  • Bananas give you a boost in potassium, calcium, and manganese.
  • Celery is high in vitamin K and molybdenum, with high levels of folate, manganese and potassium as well.
  • Mango adds the sweetness as well as extra vitamin C.

Making smoothies is super easy—the only important thing to remember is to add your ingredients in the right order.

Step 1: Add your milk base of choice. My preference is always homemade coconut milk, but you could also use almond milk. If you choose to use store-bought milk, you may need to add some water, as those tend to be slightly thicker in consistency and your smoothie may need to be thinned out.

Step 2: Add in chard, kale, and celery. Tear the leaves first and chop celery into 2 to 3 pieces to make blending easier.

Step 3: Add in the frozen spinach, mango and banana.

Step 4: Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.

Step 5: Add a full dropper of liquid chlorophyll and blend once again for a few seconds.

Step 6: Pour into a glass and serve your liquid chlorophyll smoothie fresh.

Incorporating a green chlorophyll smoothie into your diet is incredibly easy, even if you don’t like eating lots of veggies. If you haven’t read about the many health benefits of chlorophyll, make sure you check out why I started drinking liquid chlorophyll.
