Zero Waste Smoothie Recipes with Conscious Cleanse & Abeego

Zero Waste Smoothie Recipes with Conscious Cleanse & Abeego

If you know us here at the Conscious Cleanse, you know we love our green smoothies! We believe that there’s no snack more versatile and nutritious than a freshly blended smoothie.

Ranging from the protein-packed peanut butter and banana smoothie to the light and fruity blueberry & lemon smoothie to the palette-awakening cilantro & lime smoothie, these blended beauties are a simple, delicious, and customizable way to chug nutritious foods.

Above all, however, is the smoothie’s unmatched ability to help reduce food waste in your kitchen. While you may not delight in munching on strawberry tops or lemon peels on their own, tossed in a blender, they keep your smoothie healthy and your compost empty.

So we’ve teamed up with our friends at Abeego to offer you a delicious round-up of zero waste smoothie recipes!

We love Abeego and their commitment to creating a product that’s good for you, for your food, and for the planet. Their products are designed to help your fresh foods breathe and last longer, in addition to being 100% plastic-free, reusable, and biodegradable.

Whether you’re after breakfast smoothie recipes, smoothie recipes for kids, or simply looking to up your blended fruit game, we’ve put together a list of some yummy waste-free smoothie recipes to help you reduce your food waste.

Burrito-wrap your bundles of kale or spinach in a large or giant Abeego food wrap to keep them spirited and nutritious for this Brain Boosting Smoothie Bowl. Grab your Abeego food wrap and wrap your halved lemon, apple, or leftover strawberry tops for an amazing Apple & Strawberry Smoothie.
