All it takes is a quick Internet search to figure out that veggie-packed smoothies are everywhere. There are green smoothies filled with spinach and kale, orange smoothies made with carrots, red smoothies colored by beets, and so many more. The problem is, a lot of these vegetable smoothie recipes taste…a little too much like vegetables.

Let’s be honest for a second here: Vegetables are healthy—and delicious in their own right—but does anyone really want to gulp down a mouthful of liquid that tastes like kale? I don’t think so. The best vegetable smoothies are, in fact, the ones where said vegetables play a supporting role. The formula for this isn’t all that difficult. Just make sure you’re pairing the vegetable with a sweet fruit (Banana, pineapple, mango and berries are all great options!) and enough liquid to make sure the whole thing blends until it’s smooth.

If you’re too afraid to wing it with your own smoothie combination, the veggie-packed smoothie recipes below are here to guide you. All pack nutritious vegetables, without any grassy aftertaste.
