This is my staple spinach smoothie. I love this one either first thing in the morning or post-workout.
For anyone afraid of the green in Noah's smoothie, this one may be easier on the eyes. Although I promise that you will begin to fall in love with the beautiful green color of a spinach smoothie after you've had a few. This one is not green (in appearance) due to the blueberries.
If you want to make this one for kids and prefer to not use the protein powder, skip it and substitute some yogurt if you like.
Spinach Smoothie by Shelley from A Little Spinach
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 of a banana
2 giant handfuls of spinach
3/4 - 1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 scoop of protein powder (I use a natural whey protein isolate)
1 tablespoon of healthy fat - usually I'll use flax seed oil but almond butter is fabulous if you want a little more flavor.
3-4 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients except ice together. Once everything is blended, add ice and blend again. Makes one large glass plus a little refill.
Stay tuned for other spinach smoothie ideas. Caleb's favorite has orange juice which is delicious and completely different from the ones that Noah and I have shared.
|I love getting in all of these nutrients!|
|Ready to go!|
|Call me crazy, but I think there's something beautiful about the river of flaxseed oil on the protein.|
I loved hearing all of your spinach smoothie stories after we posted Noah's recipe. I hope you'll enjoy this one as well. Cheers!
