Bee Green Smoothies

Jump to Recipe

Two glasses filled with spinach and kale green detox smoothie with yellow and green swirled straws

June is National Fruits and Vegetables Month. Neighboring farms and gardens are bursting with ripening fresh fruits and vegetables. Who doesn’t enjoy fresh-from-the-garden produce from local farmer’s markets or from neighbor’s gardens?

One way to increase your fruit and veggie intake is by drinking green smoothies. A smoothie is also great when you’re busy and on the go or to treat your body well after over-indulging in too many summer treats.

The difference between green juice and green smoothies is the amount of fiber you get. Technically the smoothie is better for you, rich with vitamins and nutrients from raw and unfiltered plants.

There is no “right” or “wrong” when making green smoothies.

We always encourage you to play with our recipes and make them your own. Sometimes it may be out of necessity.

  • No green apples on hand? Try pineapple
  • Mix up the greens based on what is in season
  • Add some flax seeds or hulled hemp seeds in place of chia seeds
  • Top with cocoa nibs or hulled hemp seeds for added crunch
  • If you like your smoothie thicker add frozen berries or add ice cubes.

We want to share a green smoothie recipe inspired by the bees. Our Bee Green Smoothie contains ingredients we would not have without the bees.

Makes 4 small smoothies or two large.
