Fruits & Vegetables 

Aim to add at least 1 cup of fruit and 1 cup of vegetables or dark greens each, per smoothie, to get the most fiber and plant-based benefits.

Nearly all fruits work well in a smoothie, some popular fruits include strawberries, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, pineapple, mango, and peaches.

The mildest tasting vegetables that work best in a smoothie include carrots, butternut squash, yellow squash, zucchini, and cauliflower.

You can always include dark green vegetables like raw cannabis leaves, kale, and spinach, too.

Fruit & Vegetable Combo Examples:

  • Tropical – pineapple, mango, and carrots
  • Fruity -mixed berries and cauliflower
  • Nutty – frozen banana, zucchini, and almond butter

Using frozen fruits and frozen vegetables is oftentimes more affordable, reduces food waste, and still tastes great.

Liquid of Choice

It’s time to choose what liquid you will use to blend the fruits and vegetables with.

Normally about 1 cup to 1¼ cup of liquid is the perfect amount for a 1 serving smoothie, but you can adjust that based on your texture preferences.

If you are looking for a thicker drink, lowering your liquid, adding in extra bananas or nut butter, and using any milk instead of water will give you a much fuller smoothie.

Common liquids chosen for smoothies include:

Your Favorite Add-Ins

There are so many options when it comes to add-ins for a smoothie.

Several powerful nutrient-dense foods called superfoods go great in smoothies, and you wouldn’t even know that they are in there! 

Delicious, nutritious options:

  1. Hemp seeds
  2. Chia seeds
  3. Ground flax seeds
  4. Raw cannabis leaves
  5. Maca powder
  6. Cacao nibs
  7. Nut butter: hemp seed butter, peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter (also great to be used as a thickener!)

Optional Protein Powder

Adding protein powder to your smoothies is a great option, especially if you are making a meal out of it.

Protein is an important nutrient to keep you full, and it can prevent you from snacking or getting hungry later on.

Thankfully, there are so many different protein powders on the market today that you can choose one to suit your dietary and personal taste preferences and needs.

Pick An Infusion Option

There are many different ways to infuse your cannabis smoothie!

You should choose an option based on what you have available and your personal taste preferences.

We will go over all of the possible options below, choose between your preference of CBD or THC.

Raw Cannabis Leaves

As mentioned above, you can use raw cannabis leaves as your vegetable add-in.

While some folks simply choose to discard their fan leaves, many growers prefer to use all parts of the plant to support their health.

Fan leaves contain little to no active cannabinoids, they contain important nutrients, antioxidants, and cannabinoid acids like THCA and CBDA, meaning they are not useless. 

Large fan leaves or small sugar leaves are the most common parts of the cannabis plant used for a smoothie, although the raw cannabis flower buds can be added as well. 

Leftover Cannabis Pulp

Instead of throwing out leftover cannabis flower pulp from making cannabis oil or tincture, many people choose to use it in a delicious smoothie recipe.

For smoothie recipes featuring cannabis pulp, it is still recommended to start low and go slow.

This will give you time to experiment with not only the potency but the taste, too.

Cannabis Oil

Many people add either coconut oil or MCT oil to their favorite smoothie recipe.

This is a popular option because it is super easy to add right to the smoothie if you already have your oil prepared.

How much to add will be up to you and depend on the potency of your oil.

And just remember, infused oil has been known to cause digestive distress in some people, so approach with caution.

Cannabis Tincture

Additionally, members of my community report adding a small bit of a Green dragon or QWET tincture to their favorite smoothie recipes.

While this option may have a strong taste for some, others enjoy this quick and easy way to medicate.

Cannabis Concentrates

Making edibles with cannabis concentrates is one of the most convenient, easy-to-use, pre-prepared concentrated products for cannabis infusions.

Because they are concentrated, you only need to add a tiny bit to each recipe to get the experience you are looking for. 

You can try adding a distillate CBD concentrate or even full-extract cannabis oil (FECO) directly to your smoothie.


In order to reap the benefits of CBD oil, you want to be sure that you’re choosing a quality CBD oil product and not using a hemp seed oil product.

You will also want to choose between a broad-spectrum and full-spectrum product.

If you’re ready to make your own CBD smoothies at home but need a high-quality CBD oil to start with, this is the perfect concentration for beginners.

With this bottle, each 1mL serving, one dropper full, contains 16.6mg of CBD.

You can also make your own CBD oil at home using this guide.
