Costco has a blend of baby greens that come in a bag that we really like for smoothies. The blend has baby spinach, baby kale, baby chard, etc. Make sure to pack the greens into the measuring cup when measuring. You could use coconut milk in a carton, but canned will give it the best flavor.
My secret ingredient in smoothies is an avocado. The smoothie does not taste avocado-y, but it keeps the smoothie from separating (it will eventually separate a little bit if stored in the fridge over several hours) and makes it so creamy and smooth. Plus you get a dose of healthy fats.
I also added a few drops of wild orange essential oil to really make this Paleo green smoothie flavorful and refreshing!*Please note that most of the links on this page are affiliate links.
