Find A Go-To Recipe
If you’ve fallen into the common habit of just throwing in whatever greens and veggies you have on hand, then you are sure to have smoothies and juice that taste great—and others not so much. While you shouldn’t give up experimentation, try to be a bit more consistent.
Add Nuts, Seeds, And Other Protein
Another way to really enhance the flavor profile, is to blend in some hearty nuts or seeds. You could even add a nut butter, like almond butter. Keep in mind that a little bit goes a long way, so take it easy. You can even test a few different protein powders.
Spice It Up A Bit
Don’t forget to throw in some fresh herbs, like mint or lemongrass. Or even add a dash of cayenne pepper to spice things up a bit.
For some, green juice may never really taste great—but you certainly can make it taste better!
