We would like to finish this article by hand with 5 green smoothies that you could use perfectly in a low-carb diet. We name the ingredients that you should put through the blender for a delicious green smoothie (that gives you energy, makes you fitter and helps you gain weight faster).
Pineapple with spinach smoothie
Take 250 grams of spinach and a whole pineapple. Put it in small cubes through the blender and top up with water until the smoothie is drinkable.
Pineapple gives a sharp taste, making the bitter of the spinach disappear. It can vary per smoothie how the taste predominates, so please adjust the quantities. It works best to use a real pineapple, but 2 cans of pineapple are also sufficient (only less tasty).
Watermelon, banana and lemon smoothie
You make a fresh (summery) smoothie based on the ingredients watermelon , banana and lemon. You peel a whole lemon and put it in the blender, including a whole banana and about a quarter of watermelon. Note: because there is a lot of water in watermelon, you don’t have to add any water. In that respect this is a very fruity smoothie.
You could add some more vegetables to remove the sour lemon flavor. For example, think of spinach or endive, but cucumber is also very refreshing in this smoothie.
Autumn green smoothie
The autumn green smoothie consists of 1 apple (Jonagold, Elstar or Pink Lady), 1 pear (not too hard anymore), 1 handful of walnuts and a teaspoon of linseed. Two cooked stalks of cauliflower make this smoothie complete.
The nut and seed smoothie
Put as many nuts and seeds in the blender as possible (hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, chia seeds, sesame seeds and linseed) and add a banana and water to make the smoothie drinkable. Don’t you like banana? Then add other fruit and half a zucchini to keep the substance firm.
The red, green smoothie
A special mix that you must love consists of this green smoothie that will turn red: 150 grams of strawberries, a handful of raspberries, a handful of blueberries, half a can of red beets and water.
Blend the smoothie until it is nice and drinkable.
