Some of us may still want a bite of that leafy green when we are drinking that smoothie, also for a few there are people who likes it really blended. As much as possible, blend your leafy green (e.g. Spinach, Kale, Bok Choy, etc.) up to 100% to get a way that “vegetable” like feeling. Together with your liquid-base (e.g. water, coconut water, coconut milk, or almond milk).
Freeze the fruits
