Byrdie editors and Byrdie readers have a lot in common. Loving quick hairstyles and long-lasting lipstick are certainly up there on the list, but we’ve also come to realise another point of overlap recently: Our smoothie obsessions run deep. Eating kale when it comes in sippable (and Instagrammable) form is so much more enjoyable. But a hefty dose of greens is not enough to make your smoothie dietitian-approved.

So how does your go-to smoothie stack up? To find out, we submitted your recipes to two experts: nutritionist and Kore Kitchen founder Meryl Pritchard and registered dietitian and Top Balance Nutrition founder Maria Bella.

Scroll through to see if your smoothie got a nutritionally sound stamp of approval!
