7 Best Greens Powder Drink Recipes: Enjoy the Benefits of Greens

posted 2023 Apr by

It’s no secret that at L’Evate You, we love our greens. Mixing our Vitality Daily Greens directly into water is one of the easiest, fastest, and most delicious ways to get a daily dose of the ingredients our bodies need to optimize our health. 

When we’re in the mood for a little more, we make a delicious greens powder drink. The recipes we have for you are borderline criminal. You’ll swear you’re drinking a calorie-laden milkshake instead of an antioxidant-rich smoothie.

Before we get started, let’s talk about what’s inside your greens powders. 

Greens Powders: What’s Inside

Greens powders make it easy for you to eat your veggies. Inside, you’ll find more than just your daily dose of leafy, green vegetables. You’ll find a densely-packed powerhouse of health-enhancing ingredients that are designed to give your body what it needs to function properly.

Green Power

Of course, your green superfood powder contains greens, but did you know that L’Evate You Vitality Daily Greens Powder contains over 30 superfoods and nine greens per serving? That means every time you use it, you’re hitting the high bar for green vegetable intake, which should be about 2-3 cups (or one serving) per day.

M-Charge Cellular Energizer Complex

You’ll only find it in L’Evate You Vitality Daily Greens. Our proprietary M-Charge complex is loaded with natural, plant-based ingredients that go to work deep inside your cells, firing up your sluggish mitochondria. The mitochondria in your cells work like their batteries, and over time, they need recharging. 

The ingredients in our M-Charge complex help support mitochondrial function, recharging your batteries so you can feel energized. 

Digestive Support

With age, your digestion just isn’t the same. Indigestion, bloating, abdominal discomfort, and occasional constipation are hallmarks of the 40+ set, but they don’t have to be. 

L’Evate You Vitality Daily Greens contains a blend of probiotics and prebiotics to help regulate your regularity. You’ll also get fiber to support colon health and gut health.

Powerful Antioxidants

Antioxidants protect your cells from something called oxidative stress. Oxidative stress happens when there are more free radical molecules in your body than there are antioxidants. Free radicals can damage your healthy cells, resulting in premature aging and contributing to age-related illnesses. 

Antioxidants works to support the health of your cells so that they stay in good shape, even during exposure to free radicals. They’re naturally found in fruits and vegetables as vitamin A and vitamin C, and we fortify our greens powder with a blend of antioxidants to help support your body as you get older. 

Mushroom Blend

These aren’t the same shrooms you did in the sixties. Our mushroom blend helps keep cholesterol and sodium levels low, supports your immune function, and helps round out the nutrient profile of our greens powder. 

Now that you’re well acquainted with your greens powder, let’s get mixing. Here are our top seven favorite greens powder drink recipes that will have you reaching for your blender every day.

Top Seven Greens Powder Drink Recipes

Before you get started, there are a few basic items you’ll need in order to make most of these recipes. You’ll need a standard blender, ice, dairy-free milk (like almond milk or coconut milk), a tall glass, and your favorite reusable straw.

Helpful Hints

You’re well on your way to becoming a super greens powder smoothie professional. Here are some tips that can help you prepare the perfect smoothie every time. 

  • Fresh vs. frozen ingredients. Using fresh ingredients will produce a smoothie-like finish. Using frozen ingredients creates a milkshake-like consistency. 
  • Extra protein. Want more protein in your drink? Add your favorite protein powder into any recipe and increase the amount of liquid base by ½ cup for a protein-rich treat. 
  • Cut prep time in half by buying pre-sliced or chopped ingredients or prepping them yourself at the beginning of the week and storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. 

Want to make your drink into a meal? Toss in a half cup of whole oats to create a smoothie bowl that is satisfying and meal-replacement-worthy. 

How Often Can You Drink Greens Powder?

To support your health, you only need one serving of your greens powder per day. You’ll get all the beneficial ingredients your body needs to support your energy, digestion, and overall function with just one scoop. 

Improving your health is a journey, and taking a greens powder is an easy step you can take that will net you big results. 

What Else Can You Do to Maximize Your Greens Powder Benefits?

Your own health journey will look different from those of others. You might not be in the gym five days a week or sipping protein powder instead of coffee. To maximize the benefits you get from your greens powder, you can make other small changes that lead to major health improvement. 

Be Consistent

Consistency is key to usefulness. Stay consistent by using your greens powder every day. 

Get Moving

Exercise keeps your joints mobile, protects against muscle loss, and helps support healthy bones and a healthy mind. A ten-minute walk is all it takes to start your own exercise routine.

Eat Healthfully

Making better choices is easier when we reframe the conversation from what we can’t eat to what we can eat. Look at food as fuel for your body and consider whether what you’re eating will help support your health goals or if you should make a different choice. 

The Bottom Line

Greens powders are a building block of your wellness journey. They’re incredibly versatile, so it’s virtually impossible to get bored with the flavor. Use your greens powders to fill in dietary gaps and support your overall nutrition. You’ve got one body, and you deserve to feel good in it. Greens powders help you feel good in the body you’ve got.
