Healthy Keto Vegan Sweet Green Smoothie With Vegetables

Healthy Sweet Green Smoothie With Vegetables

I have read so many comments that people around the world are struggling with intaking enough vegetables in their diet. Salads are my favourite meals but at some point I got really tired of them so I decided to figure out something else. I don’t like smoothies with vegetables so I was searching long enough to find inspiration for vegetable smoothies sweet enough for my needs. I don’t eat so many fruits because of their amount of sugar, however I do eat vegetables. To be honest, I do not struggle with intaking vegetables, but I do struggle with drinking them as smoothie. Why did I decide to make a smoothie then? Liquid is digested much better by our body, so it is a great idea for the last meal of the day.

How to make healthy sweet green smoothie with vegetables?

Preparation time: around 10 minutes

Servings: 2 big glasses and some leftovers

Ingredients

  • 1 handful of camote tops (sweet potatoes leaves, one of the famous Filipino vegetables)
  • 4 leaves of lettuce
  • 2 tablespoons of lime or lemon
  • 1 serving of cherry flavour BCAA (of course, you can use any other flavour but it seems like cherry flavour fits perfectly with green vegetables)
  • 2 tablespoons of coco syrup or coconut sugar (optional, sometimes I add coco syrup and coconut sugar, sometimes just coco syrup for more keto oriented version)
  • 12 ice cubes (it is much better with ice cubes, add more if you wish to have more ice-cream texture)
  • 2 cups of water (add more if you want more smoothie, I usually add more to fill up my blender)
  • 2 teaspoons of chia seeds
  • cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Clean vegetables under the water and chop them into smaller pieces.
  2. Add water to blender and add all ingredients one by one while blending.
  3. Done! Add chai seeds on the top for decoration.
