12 October 2022|Nutrition

We love smoothies! A green smoothie is a clever way to sneak in more veggies throughout the day. And they're darn tasty too. Looking for the tastiest green smoothie recipes? We've got them listed for you!

Healthy green smoothies

Green smoothies are super healthy. Well, at least if you make them the Orangefit way. Namely, without any fattening ingredients like yogurt or ice cream, but filled to the brim with healthy ingredients. Lots of leafy greens, water, grain flakes, and a scoop of vegan protein powder or green juice. And of course, fruit. Because while all the ingredients together are a nutrient feast, the fruit adds that delightful taste.

Green juice

1. Superfood smoothie

Did you know that kale is a true 'superfood'? Kale has the highest vitamin C content of all cabbage varieties and contains significant amounts of vitamins A, B, and K. Spinach is also officially a superfood. It's rich in folate and iron, among other beneficial substances. So, it's a super healthy combination!

To mask the strong cabbage taste a bit, we make this smoothie with pineapple and banana. If you add a scoop of Orangefit Greens, you're adding another 24 different types of healthy vegetables and fruits to your smoothie.

Ingredients (for 1 serving)

  • 200 grams almond milk
  • 40 grams kale
  • 25 grams spinach
  • ½ banana
  • 150 grams pineapple
  • 1 scoop of Orangefit Greens


  1. Wash the kale.
  2. Cut the banana and pineapple into pieces.
  3. Put all the ingredients in a blender.
  4. Blend for 30 seconds at the highest setting. Kale can be quite tough.
  5. Pour into a glass and enjoy (you can use a straw if you want).

Can smoothies help with weight loss?

Losing weight is about creating a calorie deficit. That means burning more calories daily than you consume. This is primarily achieved by eating healthier.

Simply adding smoothies to your diet (without making any other changes) won't lead to weight loss. However, green smoothies are a tasty way to supplement deficiencies and ensure you're getting enough healthy nutrients. This helps maintain your energy levels and makes it easier to sustain weight loss for the long term!
