This yellow bell pepper avocado smoothie will rock your day! The grilled bell pepper will add an smokey flavour to your green smoothie.

Yellow bell pepper avocado smoothie with its yellow color is not your average green smoothie. Bell pepper though is a perfect veggie with many minerals and vitamins to boost your day.

And yes, of course you can make this smoothie with a green or red bell pepper :)

After preparing your bell pepper in the oven you can also freeze the bell pepper pieces in your freezer.
This will be more efficient if you make another green smoothie with bell pepper another time.

As you can imagine is my freeze packed with frozen vegetables and fruits :)
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup yellow bell pepper (about ½ bell pepper)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 avocado
  • 1½ cups fat free yogurt (360 ml)
  • ⅓ cup water (80 ml)
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 2 teaspoons hemp seeds (10 ml)
Instructions
  1. We will grill the bell pepper in the oven to give the smoothie a smokey flavour. Remove the stalk of the pepper and get rid of the seeds and pith. Cut the pepper lengthwise in big chunks.
  2. Wash the chunks and dry. Grill the pieces in your oven on tin foil for about 15 minutes at 350 Fahrenheit (175 Celsius).
  3. When the pepper pieces are cooled you can peel the skin away.
  4. Peel the banana and avocado. Cut them in pieces and toss them together with all the ingredients in your blender.
  5. Blend till smooth for about 45 seconds.

Hello green smoothie lovers! This perfect green smoothie bundles the best superfood ingredients raw kale and chia seeds.

The sweet taste of this green smoothie comes from the kiwis and apple juice. I just love this green smoothie with its perfect sweet taste and all the right nutritions like copper, iron and many vitamins.

For a less sweeter kale avocado smoothie you could replace the apple juice with skimmed milk or fat free yogurt.

Kale is pretty hot in the United States at the moment and considered as a "Superfood". Not surprisingly, because they contain so many good nutritions.

Did you know that kale or also known as borecole comes from the typical Dutch dish "Boerenkool"? In the Netherlands they are eating this kale stew already for many decades mainly in winter and autumn.
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups raw kale (100 gram)
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1½ cup apple juice (360 ml)
  • 6 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Peel and chop the avocado and kiwis.Toss the pieces in your blender with all the other ingredients and blend till smooth.
