I’ve been on a serious smoothie kick. Probably because I have a freezer full of fruits and veggies after stocking up during the COVID-craziness.

But also because I recently cracked the code on how to make a creamy green smoothie without dairy. YOU HEARD ME RIGHT!

No diary, supa thick, and oh so creamy. You know you want it!

Let’s talk ingredients. What do you need to make my favorite green smoothie?

I keep my smoothie ingredients in the freezer to help keep the smoothie extra thick. But fresh ingredients will totally work too!

Frozen spinach. I will add spinach to just about anything to get in extra greens. Plus you don’t even taste it! You could easily swap another green, like kale. 

Frozen zucchini. Another smoothie staple. It is important that you first steam the zucchini before you freeze it. This makes the zucchini much easier to digest. Or you could swap it with some frozen cauliflower rice.

Frozen banana. For a little sweetness!

Avocado. Avocado is a great way to add some healthy fats to a smoothie. And it makes everything very creamy.

Chia seeds. I add chia seeds (or flax meal) to increase the fiber content.

Protein Powder. For protein, of course! My favorite is Rootz Nutrition Protein Superfood – if you want to try it, use the code HUNGRY10 for a discount!

Nut milk. Any sort of nut milk will work here. If you don’t have any, skip it! I always add water as the main liquid to smoothies too.

How to make green smoothies creamy:

I have a few additions that will make green smoothies creamy without adding any dairy:

  1. Avocado
  2. Nut butter
  3. Granola – especially Hungry by Nature grain free granola. My grain free granola is an addictively delicious mix of nuts and seeds – almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, coconut flakes, and sunflower seeds coated in a little maple syrup – that will bring your smoothie up an extra level.
