VKel, MD in Smoothie manipulation.
I have found the tactic for a great looking smoothie is to NOT use fruits and veggies that are complimentary colors.
For example, raspberries and kale have very strong colors when blended, but putting them together will make your smoothies look grayish because red and green are complimentary colors.
Kale, mango, carrots, etc all go well together because they are analogous colors, i.e. they are one step away from each other on the colour wheel.
Subsequently raspberries go well strawberries, tomatoes, carrots, mangoes, oranges, lemons OR blueberries, blackberries and other blue-purple fruit and veggies. I wouldn’t put carrots and blueberries together, they are complementary.
You can also try to mix them like paint colours - use overwhelmingly red coloured fruit and veggies, with a smaller amount of orange-yellow to warm the color up and a dash of blue to give it color richness. Balancing color with taste considerations (in particular the sweet-tart balance) is a fun puzzle.
Some ingredients are neutral or don’t have strong colors. Bananas, avocados and such are like that. And they make smoothies creamy without having to use milk.
