Just wondering what everyone puts in their green breakfast smoothie? I was thinking of spinach and avocado and maybe broccoli but not sure what else would taste nice. Also, how do you stop getting hungry? Do you add any nuts or other protein? I don't do smoothies so I don't know where to start.

What's in your green smoothie?

My favourite right now is kale, baby spinach, avocado, cucumber (peeled, I don't like the taste of the skin in smoothies), banana, really ripe pear, mango, 1/2 handful of cashews and a tsp of chia seeds. It is filling enough to replace a meal.
Most other fruits are good in place of those listed, but freeze as much of it as you can - the colder, the better! I find when its room temp, you can taste the veggies more.
I try to have at least half veggies.

Water, green superfood powder, green apple, baby spinach, frozen broccoli and handful of ice cubes. I have this with 1/4 cup of muesli with a few berries on top and a dash of milk.

Usually mine has the below:
Half a Granny Smith Apple
1 kiwi fruit
Today I tried spinach, strawberries, kiwi and coconut water. It was ok but didn't love it.

Mine changes depending on what I have in the fridge. I would definitely use coconut water as a base. Then add:
Half-one frozen banana
Baby Spinach or kale (baby spinach is better if you are new to this, flavour not so strong)
Half a lemon or lime
Half a Lebanese cucumber
Handful of mint
Handful ice cubes
Avo is great to add healthy fat. And/or nuts such as cashews, chia seeds, pepitas etc. sometimes I add an ice cube of frozen coconut cream (especially if I have added pineapple - yum!).
I think start simple. Figure out what flavours you like and gradually change ratio of fruit to veg as you get used to the taste. Start with more fruit, less veg.
You can get fancy and add spirulina or other super foods. I like to top mine with a teaspoon of cacao nibs for crunch.
And keep in mind if you add red fruits like strawberries it might go brown... Still tastes good though!
