Peggy’s Green Smoothie Recipe

Hey everyone! It’s Jillian’s mama, Peggy here! A few weeks ago I was over at Jillian’s house and she shared on her IG stories that I would be sharing my go-to green smoothie recipe and mental health journey with all of you! If you missed my mental health journey blog post, you can check it out here!

Also, I am happy to report that I have perfected my smoothie recipe and am sharing all of the nutritious details with you today!

Easy green smoothie recipe

A few years ago Jillian surprised me with a Vitamix blender as a gift and to be honest, it sat on the counter collecting dust for quite some time. Once I started to feel more like myself again, I started to experiment with different smoothie recipes. Through trial and error, I ended up landing on a recipe that both my husband and I love (which is a bonus) that I have every morning!

While this smoothie may not look green, you better believe it’s loaded with lots of leafy greens and awesome nutrients! LOL! If you are wanting your smoothie to be green in colour I would suggest using light coloured frozen fruits!

    What protein powder does your mom use?💕

  2. Teresa says:

    This sounds delicious!
    I’m a smoothie virgin and wonder if I need to peel the cucumber and apple? What brand of orange juice and coconut yogurt do you use or does that not matter?
    Thank you for sharing your mental health story! 😊

  3. Tamara says:

    Your looking good mama Peggy! All the best to you and your family.

  4. Estelle Durocher says:

    Will be trying this.delish recipe soon.
    . Thank you Peggy 💕

  5. Karen Ann says:

    Hi Jillian/Peggy ~
    First, Peggy so proud of you to share your story, very brave and unselfish of you. It certainly inspired me.
    Second, Jillian ♥️ you, your spirit, your design and so much more.
    Third, can’t wait to try this smoothie recipe. Please confirm for me when you state “fill high speed blender 3/4 full …” does this mean ALL ingredients and then all the ice?
    A point my naturopath taught me about protein powder is to add it last, after all ingredients are blended, add the powder and ONLY blend until it is combined. Doing this does not break the protein powder down.
    I look forward to hearing from you and thank you again ☺️

  6. Tonia Scofield says:

    It warmed my heart to see a mother and daughter in the same kitchen. Jillian you are both so blessed to have each other, always cherish these moments together!
    Thank you for the recipes I will most definitely be trying it this week when I have all ingredients.

  7. Wendy Hughes says:

    Love the article with Jillian and her mom; sweet picture of the two of them. Wondering where Jillian purchased her lovely sleeveless pinkish top she wore in the pic?

  8. Sammy says:

    I’ve been having a smoothie every morning for 8 months now, and I feel like a completely different person. I am a lot happier, my skin has improved, and most importantly, I’ve lost weight! I’m glad you are also feeling better!
