Best Green Smoothie Recipe

Description

The best green smoothie recipes are full of iron, potassium and vitamins galore AND tastes like a tropical treat from all the island fruit. There’s no need to be scared of a spinach smoothie when it tastes like this— just read the reviews to see what I mean.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1 banana
  • 1 serving Protein Smoothie Boost (optional)

Instructions

  1. Measure: Tightly pack spinach in a measuring cup.
  2. Add: Put spinach to blender with water. Blend together until all chunks are gone. (Should resemble green water when blended well).
  3. Toss: Pineapple, mango and banana to blender. I like to use frozen pineapple and mangos to chill the smoothie down and save time cutting and prepping. It’s a win-win!
  4. Blend: It all together until smooth and creamy. Depending on your blender, this could take as little as 30 seconds or as long as 2 minutes.
  5. Pour: Into a glass and serve immediately.
  6. Store: In the fridge with a lid until ready to drink.

Notes

*Not a fan of bananas? Swap it for 1/4 avocado, additional 1/2 cup mango or 1/2 cup peaches.
