Veggie-Packed Avocado Green Smoothie

Here is a green smoothie recipe that uses easy-to-find ingredients. Feel free to add any other ingredients to your liking.
Prep Time10 mins


  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup oat milk, can substitute with almond or soy milk
  • 2 large handfuls mixed greens, about 3 1/2 cups, loosely packed
  • 1/4 large sweet bell pepper
  • 1/2 large avocado
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated ginger, or a few 1-inch slices
  • zest from 1/2 lemon, about 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • juice from 1/2 lemon, about 1 1/2 tablespoons
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 4 to 5 ice cubes


  • Add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender.
  • Cover the blender with the lid and turn it on low speed. Once the ingredients start mixing, gradually increase the speed to high. Blend until you no longer see any small chunks of salad greens floating in the blender.
  • Serve the smoothie in two 16-ounce glasses. 


Other Vegetable Ideas: Whenever I buy vegetables from the farmers market, they often come with the greens intact. Those greens, such as carrot tops, beet greens, or radish greens, are great for adding to smoothies. You can add a small handful of those greens in addition to the salad greens. I also like adding celery, cucumber, or zucchini to my smoothies.
