How To Make A Green Smoothie Tasty Every Time

10 Comments 10 October 2011

Valya Boutenko demonstrates how you can avoid foamy, unpalatable green smoothies by knowing the difference between soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Adding fruits that are rich in soluble fiber will transform the texture of a green smoothie into something creamy and delicious.

  1. Thank you. I know I should be doing green smoothies all year long but it gets harder for me in the colder months. With summer just around the corner (for those of us in the southern hemisphere) this is an excellent motivation and information video.

    Thanks :)

  2. I think they enjoy the green smooties! I also have a lot of green smoothie recipe! I also think that your body is fit to be! You also get a lot more energy! Definitely worth a try for a better lifestyle

    Greetings Jessica

    Valya, thank you for clarifying why some of my smoothies came out tasting like “straight grass”. I got the foamy layer on top and particle fallout but thought I wasn’t drinking them fast enough. That foamy layer was HARD to get down. I started using a banana, et voila! A great smoothie was achieved every time. I am still working on using other greens in quantity in smoothies other than spinach. Thank you for a great video!!!

    Thanks Valya for a great video. My smoothies are so rich tasting now that a few “cooked fooders” (that’s my nickname for folks who eat cooked foods) are even liking the taste! I am very proudly 100% raw for 1 month and 1 week and can’t believe how much better I feel, with more energy and enthusiasm, plus the pain is nearly gone. Pain I had for more than 5 years.
    Also, your 7 Best Green Smoothies DVD is so inspiring even my husband watched it.
    You and your family make eating all raw foods so much easier! Keep up the good work.

    Thank you, Valya. You covered all the basics so now I feel confident enough to “risk” making a green smoothie that I will actually like! I bought organic kale at our grower’s market this morning so that noise you’ll hear in a minute is me making friends with the blender in the kitchen…

    Just bought a Ninja Blender to make smoothies. Our first try was more of a grainy texture than smooth. What blender is really the best??? Would like some feedback/help!!!

    Hi, I do not have thyroid problems but my sister does, so I’m afraid of consuming raw goitrogenic foods in case I may have a genetic propensity. Could you tell me more of what you know about raw cruciferous greens in relation to thyroid/gout problems, and also, could you recommend a green smoothy as nutritious for people with thyroid problems or propensity to them. Thank you. I love this site.

    Best blender is the Waring MX-1000 with the stainless steel carafe
