Bee Green Smoothies

Bee Green Smoothies

We're back to drinking green smoothies this month as our taste in breakfast changes with the weather. As winter turns to summer, fresh green produce motivates us to adjust our diet. Soon, nearby farms and gardens will burst with ripening fruits and vegetables. Nothing beats fresh produce from local farmer's markets or neighbor's gardens!

Boost your fruit and veggie intake with green smoothies! They're perfect for busy days or as a healthy treat.

Green smoothies provide a higher amount of fiber compared to green juice, making them nutritionally superior. They are packed with vitamins, nutrients, and promote satiety, preventing cravings for more food.

Green Smoothie Essentials

Feel free to add or take away any of the ingredients we list below! One of the great things about smoothies is that they're hard to mess up, which makes them a perfect light meal or snack in our book.

Green smoothies are packed with many vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants you are missing.

The great thing about smoothies is that they make it easy to get in a few servings of fruits and vegetables at once! And, when you use Bee Inspired Honey, you get a little extra sweetness to brighten the whole thing up. Try our popular Tupelo Honey! Or, using Sweet Clover or Spring honey would also make it festive.

Customizable for You

Smoothie recipes are absolutely worth the effort to make. We've made this recipe easy, so you can enjoy creating and savoring them! Feel free to customize our recipes to your liking. If you're avoiding sugar, skip the fruits and transform it into a savory delight. Get creative with your food!

  • No green apples on hand? Try pineapple!
  • Mix up the greens based on what is in season.
  • Add some flax seeds or hulled hemp seeds in place of chia seeds.
  • Top with cocoa nibs or hulled hemp seeds for added crunch.
  • If your smoothie is thicker, add frozen berries or ice cubes.

Looking for a thicker smoothie? Use less liquid or add extra avocado. Blueberry adds a creamy texture (no dairy needed), and you'll love how seamlessly it blends. Avocado may sound unconventional, but give it a try; you'll be pleasantly surprised!

If you decide to make your own green smoothie, be sure to take a photo and share them with us using on Instagram. We love seeing your photos!
