What Liquids Are Best For Green Smoothies?
If you want to keep your green smoothie as healthy as possible, the liquid ingredients are just as important as the solids. You want to steer clear of anything that is going to tip the sugar scales or that is packed with unnecessary calories. Here are a few of our favorite healthy smoothie liquids.
- Water—It’s a great choice for a bright green smoothie that’s all about the, well, greens. No additives or thickeners, no calories!
- Almond milk—Lots of our favorite smoothies use almond milk. It’s a great alternative to cow’s milk that contains a lot more sugar and calories. Plus it’ll still make your smoothie nice and creamy.
- Coconut milk—Another popular choice (which you could even opt for in this Lean Green Protein smoothie!) for creamy goodness.
- Other options—oat milk, cashew milk, rice milk, coconut water, dairy milk
The key is to mix it up and try new things to keep those green smoothies (and every other smoothie!) healthy, nutritious, and totally crave-worthy. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking you’ve got to cut out all your old favorites, because supporting your healthy lifestyle and coming up with mouthwatering recipes that improve on the classics is what we’re here for.
