Green Smoothie (Enzyme-Rich Drink) - Video Recipe

Green Smoothie is a very popular smoothie in Japan these days. In this video, I will show you my Green Smoothie that I found very easy-to-make with low budget.

I used to add leafy greens in my every day smoothie, but I recently realized that was WRONG.

Here are the tips for making Green Smoothie.
- use 6 fruit against 4 vegetable (but if you don't like vegetables, you can start from adding 1 leaf)
- do NOT use starchy foods because they can cause flatulence when you intake them with fruits: milk, soy milk, yogurt, carrot, broccoli stem, cabbage, eggplant, corn, pumpkin, bean, potato, etc…
- drink 40min-1hr before breakfast (you can get the most out of your drink)
- drink right after you made it (while the enzyme is active)
- best to drink 1 liter of green smoothie per day BUT what I think important is to drink it every day, so just start off from drinking a cup of green smoothie.

So now, I drink this Green Smoothie every day 40min-1hr before breakfast.
Then I drink this collagen smoothie with my breakfast, if you know. hehe

What is good about Green Smoothie is that you can alkalize your body. At the same time, you can intake more food items every day for a well-balanced diet.

Green Smoothie

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 500ml

1/2 frozen banana*
2 pieces frozen pineapple*
1 orange
1 kiwi
1/2 apple
1/4 lemon
2 leaves green leaf lettuce (spinach, kale, whatever you like!)
100ml water

1. Place everything in a blender / mixer and process until smooth.
2. Pour into a glass, drink as soon as possible while fresh.

*I personally prefer to freeze bananas when they are at desired taste. Also, I freeze pineapple because fresh pineapple is quite perishable.

  1. I love smoothies especially avocado or mango. I would like to have it all the time but sometimes it takes time to prepare that's why I can make only occasional or whenever I really feel I need to have smoothie.

  2. thanks Miguel for your comment.

    i totally agree with you!!! it's the same for me. but now it is my daily routine, so i don't feel in that way. hehe

    but what is important is eat or drink whatever you want when you want :)

  3. Nice video, and this is a great idea for a smoothie!

    All of your videos are great. I'm glad to have found your blog.
