5 New Green Smoothie Recipes That Will Rock Your World

My trusty Oster blender finally went kaput so I bit the bullet and ordered a NutriBullet.  (Pun intended).  I can't wait for it to arrive and have been looking for new smoothie recipes to try.

Mango, kale, berry banana smoothie
I think my smoothie game is pretty good.   I make a killer almond milk, banana, berry smoothie with kale or spinach with chia seeds.  A pineapple/strawberry/spinach/chia seed smoothie and mango/kale/berries/half a banana/chia seed smoothie are both also delicious.   

Five New Recipes to Try
You can experiment with anything.  Wednesday's New York Times offered five delicious-looking recipes that are worth trying:

Green Smoothie with Cucumber & Cumin: kefir, celery, cucumber, parsley, mint, kale or spinach, ginger, chia seeds, lightly toasted cumin, lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne.  This is the most complicated recipe and perhaps the most interesting.

Pear Smoothie with Celery & Ginger: this includes a pear, spinach, celery, banana, ginger, chia seeds, kefir, agave nectar, arugula and mint.  In the past, I felt arugula adds too much flavor but the mint and ginger would mask it.

Blueberry Kefir Smoothie with Greens: contains only blueberries, kefir, banana, chia seeds, spinach or kale, and a teaspoon of honey (which I would eliminate).

Green Smoothie with Pineapple, Arugula, Greens & Cashews: features pineapple, orange juice, raw cashews, chia seeds, ginger, baby greens and arugula.

Pineapple Basil Smoothie: pineapple, basil leaves, kefir, honey, pistachios and chia seeds.  This sounds delicous!
