Rich’s Go Green Smoothie

This is a simple green smoothie. I make this or something similar when I’m in a rush. Rich’s Go Green Smoothie. It’s healthy, easy and quick to make.

Why Go Green? Maca, maca gives it the blast as in nutriblast.

My Go Green Smoothie is so easy to make in the Nutribullet. I just love my Nutribullet Pro!, but if you don’t have one you can use a blender.rich's go green smoothie

This recipe has just a few ingredients. My main ingredient is kale (organic). Kale rich in vitamin B6, vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese and copper to list a few. To boost things I add some maca and some ground flax seed.

First a couple of things. My shortcuts. 1. I use frozen fruit. Organic when I can find it. Yeah when I’m in a hurry I’ll use frozen 😉 2. Juice from a bottle. I buy the best I can find. Organic when I can find it. No preservatives and no sweeteners.

  • Kale – Buy organic. Fill the Nutribullet Pro cup to about 3/4.
  • Frozen fruit – 1/2 cup or one small hand full.
  • Maca – 1 tsp. No more than that because it will ruin the taste.
  • Ground flax seed – 1 Tbsp
  • Juice – Cranberry, 1 cup
  • Water – Fill to max line on the cup.

Extract for approximately 40 seconds or until smooth and enjoy.

If you’re looking for an energy boost, you’ll like this recipe. Maca powder is derived from a root that grows in the high altitudes of the Peruvian Andes and is known to be “Nature’s Viagra,” as well as a natural energy booster.

Rich’s Go Green Smoothie is especially good for women too because it includes cranberry juice and maca.

For women, maca decreases menopause symptoms, increases bone density and more.

Cranberry juice provides a number of important health benefits — especially for women. Cranberry juice is good for the prevention of urinary track infections, reduces the risk of breast cancer, enhances heart health and more. See the sources below.

You can find two of my main ingredients at a very good price on Amazon, maca and ground flax seed. You can also get a Nutribullet Pro there too. It’s the best price around that I can find. But of course I live in South Dakota 🙂

  1. Which do you think are best, green smoothies or juices? I’ve been thinking about buying a juicer for years, but just never purchased one. Green smoothies seem like they would provide all the benefits, like enhanced and quick assimilation of nutrients?

      Hi Matthew,

      If I had to do it all over again I would go with a Nutribullet Pro first and then get a juicer. Of course my first juicer was given to me so that really made it special. Both are great, but the Nutribullet is fast and easy. I’m using it more than the juicer now. I throw almond milk in, fresh or frozen fruit and blend. I usually add something to make it healthier like almonds or maybe some flax seed. It’s great for a snack or breakfast. The juicer is the best for cleansing though. I can’t do without it. Thanks for coming by, best wishes!
