More Nutritious Greens for Your Shakes…

Now, let’s talk about different greens that can go into your shakes for additional invaluable nutrients and support for peak health.

Kale

Popular super food, kale, is a versatile addition to any smoothie. A great source of plant-based calcium, kale has iron, potassium, phytochemicals, and lutein.

Spinach

Mild in flavor, packed with nutrients, spinach is an all-star. It’s been well-documented to potentially help fight disease, lower blood pressure, improve vision, and reduce inflammation.

Romaine Lettuce 

You’re used to chopping it up for a salad, but Romaine has such a mild flavor it’s ideal for adding to shakes. One cup of chopped Romaine supplies 66% of your vitamin A, 22% of your vitamin D, and 2% of your calcium!

Arugula 

Similar to kale, this smaller green has a slightly spicier taste, but it’s easily masked by other fruit ingredients in your shake. It has high quantities of iron, and vitamins C, A, and K.

Cabbage 

This mild green for your shake has a subtly sweet flavor that blends well with fruit. On top of that, it’s inexpensive and widely available.

Collard Greens

You’re probably more familiar with this green being served steamed, but you can add them raw to your shakes. They’re high in fiber, helping you digest better, and like other cruciferous veggies, are great for helping to ward off disease.

Chard

Swiss, Rainbow, or any kind of chard may help regulate your blood sugar, making it a great green for your shake if you struggle with blood sugar issues. You’ll get a healthy dose of iron, magnesium, potassium, and beta-carotene. This green also supports a strong immune system and cardiovascular health.

Bok Choy 

Familiar in Asian cuisine, this cruciferous green is particularly low in calories. It has an impressive amount of vitamins A, B6, C, and E.

Beet Greens 

Most of the time when people buy whole beets, the tops get chopped off and thrown away while the root is cooked and eaten. The greens are actually highly nutritious, most notably containing tryptophan, which helps regulate your sleep cycles.

Carrot Tops

Similar to beet greens, carrot greens are often overlooked. However, they’re full of nutrients including chlorophyll, which some research shows may help fight against tumor growth.

Dandelion Greens

While this bitter green might require getting used to by itself, adding it to a smoothie where it’s flavor is neutralized is a wonderful way to take advantage of the nutrition it offers. Just one serving of dandelion greens gives you as much calcium as a glass of milk! Additionally, dandelion greens are great cleansers for your liver and kidneys.

Celery

It has a strong flavor, so blend with caution, but the phytonutrients in celery are powerful antioxidants that help protect your body from disease at the cellular level.

Cilantro

Zesty and used in many international cuisines, cilantro is a natural way to potentially help lower blood sugar and cholesterol. Its flavor makes a unique contribution to tropical shakes!

Parsley

This green is way more than an afterthought sprinkled on top of dishes! It’s full of folate, beta-carotene, iron, and calcium. The taste is peppery, and should be blended with flavorful fruits to mask the bitterness. Italian parsley is milder than its curly-leaf cousin.

Why Shakes for Greens?

Shakes are arguably one of the easiest, best ways to replace a meal! They come together quickly, and all you have to do is add a few key ingredients to make them nutritionally well-rounded. For busy people on-the-go, a breakfast smoothie is one of the best strategies to avoid missing the most important meal of the day. And, you can give yourself an extra boost of daily nutrition and help enhance your energy and vitality with a scoop of 310 Greens!

For dieters working to lose weight, meal replacement shakes are an excellent way to manage nutrition and calories. The recipe options for a healthy meal replacement shake are seemingly endless: as long as you have a healthy protein powder, liquid of choice, and fruits and greens for your shake, the sky’s the limit!
