Useful tips for Apple Carrot Kale Smoothie

There’s lots of substitutions you can make here. Some suggestions:

Base: sub almond milk for coconut milk or green tea
Greens: sub kale for spinach or romaine
Texture: sub banana for frozen mango
Sweetener: totally optional, but can sub a date for agave or honey (if not strict vegan)
Seeds: use anything you have on hand, blend in or use for pretty (and healthy) topping

We used a yellow carrot so that the color of the green smoothie remained vibrant and not muddied. Yes, this is important to us because we put pictures of our smoothies all over the internet.

But it should be important to you because we taste with our eyes. If we detect a hint of “brown-ness” that smoothie is going down the drain! (See original pic above.)
