Yep and mint is really tasty, especially with cucumber, I think!
You can do dandelion, beet greens, chard, romaine lettuce leaves. As Revvell said, anything that people can eat, can be added to smoothies. Growing your own sunflower greens is a cheap and easy way to have some greenage to add to your smoothie, too. If you don't know how to do it, here's a super simple method:
You can use the same process for buckwheat lettuce, too, which I think is very sweet and mild. It's nice!
Word of caution because I found out the hard way, though - mustard greens taste like VERY SPICY mustard in a smoothie. That was an awful experience! LOL! There may well be a recipe using them that would actually be good, but my standard way of greens and some fruit was TERRIBLE the first time I tried that.

I love minth in my smoothie, so yummy. Cinlantro, parsely, beet greens, any herbs really.
Do you have dandelion? You can add them too, they are strong taste but good for you. Look for wild eatable plant in your area, it is free food.
You can sprout and add sprout such sunflower sprout, microgreen etc.... google and you will find many free information on how to sprout for pennies, even in this message board, you can find good information.
All the best
