Vegetables to add into your smoothie

When we think of smoothies, we often think of their fruity version. This is what many do: put mainly frozen fruit in their smoothie.

It remains very tasty. On the other hand, a mixture of fruit and liquid is not very filling in the long term. You'll get hungry 1 hour after drinking the smoothie!

To make it more complete, it is, therefore, advisable to add vegetables and a source of protein. In this way, your smoothie will support you and satiate your hunger. It will then become a good breakfast, an accompaniment for your breakfast, or an exciting snack.

But… How do you add vegetables without compromising the taste? No one likes a green smoothie that is unpleasant to the taste. In fact, to prevent this from happening, it is important to make the right choice of vegetables, but also the fruits that will accompany it. It’s all about balance, and that’s what we’ll discuss here.

Here are several vegetables that you can add to your smoothie without compromising the taste:

 

  • Avocado 


In addition to adding a source of good fat, adding avocado to a smoothie makes it super creamy. To balance the taste, it can be interesting to accompany it with a frozen banana, orange, or apples. You can also add a vegan vanilla yogurt, and you have a really nice smoothie there.

  • Cauliflower


Frozen cauliflower is an underrated ingredient when it comes to smoothies. However, it is excellent to include because, with its subtle taste, it goes completely unnoticed. It adds a portion of vegetables to your fruity smoothie, but without changing the taste. Maybe it's going to be your next try!

  • Spinach


The great classic of green smoothies! It is not for nothing that many use it: it goes well with most fruits, and its taste does not take over (unless you are very generous on your portion of spinach). You can serve it with berries, nut butter, or even bananas, and it will be delicious.

  • Zucchini


Another food that is too little used for smoothies and yet goes unnoticed: zucchini. Its subtle taste pairs well with most fruits: berries, exotic fruits, etc. It also adds an interesting texture!

  • Kale


Kale is a wonderful vegetable to add to your smoothie. However, it can also have a slightly bitter taste. It is essential to balance this bitterness by accompanying it with sweeter fruits. In addition, if you prefer a chocolate version, you can add a little cocoa powder.

  • Beet


For a bright red smoothie, beets with berries (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc.) are ideal. Perfect for a smoothie recipe that changes the routine.

  • Carrot


Finally, another vegetable idea to add to your smoothies is the carrot. It is delicious with sweeter exotic fruits such as mango, peach, or pineapple. It will also give your drink a beautiful orange color.

As you can see, several vegetables can be integrated into a smoothie while keeping an exciting taste. It only takes a few tries and finding the combinations that best satisfy your taste buds.
