Remember all those years of your mother nagging you to eat your greens? She was right. And unless you’re unusually dedicated to spinach, kale or swiss chard, you’re probably not getting enough greens every day. This smoothie recipe is an easy way to pack in lots of extra nutrition each day, because not only does it contain two cups of kale, collards or the greens of your choice, it’s sweetened with dates and frozen fruit. On top of that, the recipe recommends adding wheatgrass powder, spiraling, flax seeds and/or hemp seeds. Get the recipe at For the Love of Food.

This recipe from Berlin’s Whimsy even sneaks in a handful of spinach.
