A Green Smoothie series on Clumps? Whatcha think?

Greeeen smoothies. They are no strangers to Clumps of Mascara. I am forever tweeting about these glorious beverages. And when I’m not tweeting about them, I’m encouraging people to drink them. I could very well be a Green Smoothie Ambassador. If such a thing existed.

Actually, it does now. I just made it up. Yeeeep!

As your resident Green Smoothie Ambassador, I think I’m going to start blogging more about the green smoothie recipes I’m whipping up. Whatcha think? I get SO many questions about ’em (most of which I covered here) and instead of being redundant, how about I do weekly posts on ’em? Or maybe bi-weekly?

In addition to posting recipes, I’ll be sure to provide alternatives. I only drink dairy-free (with the exception of Greek yogurt sometimes) smoothies but I know some of y’all don’t mind cow’s milk. Also, keep in mind that these recipes are from a result of my own experimenting. Unless otherwise noted. You may or may not receive the same results.

The above smoothie was one that a whipped up a few days ago. I knew that I was going to have a serious day at the gym the next morning and wanted a smoothie that was filling and gave me protein. And sooooooo here’s what I mixed up.

-A handful of kale
-1 cup of coconut milk
-1/4 cup of almond milk
-A few ice cubes
-1 cup of fresh strawberries
-1 package of Chobani yogurt (vanilla)
-1 small banana
-2 tablespoons of honey
-Dash of ginger

This smoothie was deliciousssss. Some of my Instagram friends give me some recs for protein powders and I’m going to pick some up this week. My workouts are become more and more intense and I’m going to need as much protein as I can get.

Yay for green smoothies!


  • I need to try this…

  • danielle

    man i cannot stand kale!!!!! it seems like everyone love it

  • april

    I made my first green smoothie the other day and I loved it! I also made some kale chips any boy I gotta tell you my colon has never been cleaner lol.

  • Gin

    Love the addition of the Chiobani! Dairy and I usually don’t get along, but Chiobani is the exception. And so much protein!

  • I love this idea, especially that they’re dairy-free (I’m lactose-intolerant)! I’m going to assume these can be made without yogurt or substituted with non-dairy yogurt?

    • Brittany

      Absolutely! I’m lactose intolerant as well but I find that Greek yogurt doesn’t heart my tummy as much. On a side note, I looooove goat cheese because it’s the only cheese that doesn’t have me doubled over in pain.

  • Beth

    Green Smoothies….Yes, more please! I too am lactose intolerant but can eat yogurt. I use Silk or Vanialla Soy as a replacement.

    • Brittany

      Yay #TeamLactonseIntolerant!!

    One of my boyfriends is trying to eat healthier, but most vegetables make him gag. Do you have any green smoothie recipes where you don’t taste the green? I think it’s mostly a texture thing which blending should help with, but I don’t want him to buy a bunch of produce and have it totally go to waste.

    • Brittany

      As long as you have a good amount of greens, he shouldn’t taste any of the greens. I promise. All of my green smoothies taste like fruit smoothies.

  • Ooh now this looks goooood!! Yes, I would love to see a green smoothie series. I’m always looking for ways to switch mine up 😉

    Ms green smoothie ambassador, do you know if you get the same nutriitional benefits with smoothies as you do with juicing?do you ever juice?

    • Brittany

      I can’t say because I’ve never juiced before. Sorrryyyy.
