There are many recipes for making green smoothies and the best advice is to individualize to your own specific taste. That being said, there are a few tips I can share to optimize the nutritional value of your smoothie.
Include at least 1 serving of dark greens such as kale, spinach, arugula, broccoli
1/2-3/4 cup of frozen fruit (frozen will help to thicken the smoothie).
Some form of liquid. Water, milk, non dairy substitute such as almond or coconut milk.
Protein/healthy fat source, especially if your smoothie is replacing a meal. Plain greek yogurt, protein powder, nuts or nut butter, seeds such as chia or flax.
