Why You Will Love This Smoothie With Bok Choy

Bok Choy Smoothie

If you are as health conscious as me, then adding vegetables to smoothies or other superfoods shouldn’t be a strange thing to you.

Bok choy’s main benefit in my opinion is its anti-aging benefits. It is one of the main reasons why I add it to my smoothies. 

As someone who is approaching my 30s, I am becoming a lot more aware of aging, especially since I am a female.

Other reasons why you will love this smoothie include:

  • Rich in Vitamins and Minerals: The smoothie is loaded with vitamins A and C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, it supports immune function, bone health, and muscle function.
  • Antioxidant Powerhouse: The ingredients in the smoothie are packed with antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress and inflammation, contributing to overall health and wellness.
  • Digestive Health Support: High in dietary fiber, this smoothie promotes healthy digestion and can aid in regular bowel movements.
  • May Aid Weight Loss: The smoothie is high in fiber and low in calories, it can help you feel full longer, aiding in weight loss.

If you enjoy this smoothie, I recommend that you also try my broccoli smoothie recipe and my avocado and asparagus smoothie.

Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

Green Bok Choy Smoothie

There are many possible variations of this recipe.

Here are some of my recommendations to change this smoothie recipe should you want to:

  • The Mango: Instead of frozen mango, use frozen blueberries or bananas.
  • The Base: Instead of coconut water, you can use regular water or even dairy-free milk. I have tried oat milk and soy milk, both worked great.
  • Apples: The apple can be substituted for berries, bananas, or other fruit of choice.
  • Caffeine Boost: If you are making this smoothie for breakfast, add 1/2 teaspoon of matcha powder for a gentle energy boost and extra antioxidants
  • Swap The Chia Seeds: Add a gentle nutty flavor by swapping the chia for a tablespoon of unsweetened almond butter!

Equipment:

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600

Oster 6640 Blender

AMZChef Blender 1800 W

The smoothie is easy to blend, even my lowest-speed blenders did a pretty good job.

This means that even if you own a blender that has not been tested by me, I am confident that the recipe will work just fine with it.

Smoothie FAQs:
