The Cheapest & Easiest Green Smoothie Recipe You Can Make At Home

Green smoothies and juices are up there on the list of trendy foods that we’re totally guilty of spending way too much money on – and figuring out the perfect at-home recipe isn’t exactly easy. Luckily, we’ve taken the guesswork out of creating the perfect green smoothie for you – making it super simple to make at home and save tons of money in the process.

When creating the perfect green smoothie, there’s no need to follow a recipe – just use the 2-2-3 ratio. For every smoothie you make, no matter the ingredients, measure out 2 cups of greens, 2 cups of a liquid base, like almond milk or coconut water, and 3 cups of fruit – which ensures your smoothie will never end up tasting like a salad. While this specific recipe makes 32 ounces of smoothie, it can easily be halved (1 cup greens, 1 cup liquid, 1.5 cups fruit) to create one 16 ounce serving – or save the other half in an airtight container in your fridge for up to two days!

Other green smoothie tips? Make sure to blend the greens and the liquid base first before adding in your fruit to ensure the greens blend smoothly. You can also avoid using ice altogether by using frozen fruit in your blender instead.

For a super compact, single serve blender, we like the Hamilton Beach Single Serve Blender ($18.29), which even doubles as an on-the-go smoothie container with a lid!
