Green smoothies are my new love and this Spricy Green Springtime Smoothie is my gift to all smoothie lovers out there. I absolutely love this springtime green smoothie because it looks and smells so fresh and natural, while having a rather neutral taste of greens (kinds friendly) with an unexpected spicy aftertaste. It’s creamy and easy to drink, and one of those smoothies that feel nourishing and “good-for-you”.
My new favorite green smoothie is made with over 15 ingredients and includes asian spices (turmeric, ginger, and others), green veggies (bok choy, broccoli, cucumber), healthy fats (avocado), and generally nourishing plants like carrot, tomato, mandarin, avocado, broccoli, and a few other plants.
This delicious green smoothie comes together quite nicely and we enjoyed making and drinking it. I hope that you’ll decide to give it some smoothie love too!

Reasons to try this green smoothie
Here’s why you should blend this green smoothie yourself instead of buying a random smoothie from the store:
This green smoothie smells fresh and natural, and it’s made using healthy plant-based ingredients.
Making your smoothie at home means that you’ll be able to design and adjust the recipe to your liking, using your choice of ingredients.

In case you’re not a kitchen person, making your smoothie at home a few times a few gives you a chance to show some love to that beautiful kitchen, and also to get to know those beautiful plants that will become nourishment for your body. That is where health starts, you know.
Pro Tip: Use the best ingredients that you can and choose organic ingredients when possible. For a refreshing blend, make sure to use frozen broccoli as I did.
