The BEST green smoothie recipe! It’s chock-full of healthy ingredients like fresh spinach, but you’d never guess it from the sweet, delicious taste.

Best Green Smoothie Recipe Ingredients

Even though this green smoothie looks incredibly healthy (and it is – there are lots of leafy greens in there!), what I love most about it is its creamy texture and sweet, fresh flavor. Here’s what makes it so darn good:

  • Frozen banana makes it thick and creamy. Plus, it adds a little sweetness and plenty of potassium.
  • Lots of spinach gives this smoothie its vibrant color and a host of nutrients. Don’t worry – you can’t taste it!
  • Fresh mint gives it a light, fresh flavor.
  • Almond butter makes it creamy, satisfying, and rich with healthy fats.
  • Vanilla extract adds yummy depth of flavor.
  • Ice cubes make it cool and refreshing.
  • And almond milk gets the blender going and perfects the creamy texture. If you don’t have almond milk on hand, another plant-based milk like oat milk, soy milk, or coconut milk would be great here too.

Green Smoothie Recipe Variations

I love this green smoothie recipe as written, but feel free to play with it! Swap in what’s in season or what you have on hand. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Mix up the greens. Replace the spinach with a small handful of kale.
  • Swap the herbs. Try using cilantro, parsley, basil, or arugula instead of mint. Or if you prefer, skip the herbs altogether!
  • Add more fruit. Frozen fruits like frozen mango, strawberries, or blueberries would all taste good here. Or if you want to make a green smoothie that tastes sweeter, blend in one or two Medjool dates!
  • Up the protein. Blend in your favorite protein powder or a scoop of Greek yogurt.
  • Give it an extra flavor boost. Grate in fresh ginger or lemon zest, or add a squeeze of lemon juice or a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  • Use a different nut butter. Don’t like almond butter? Use cashew butter instead. You could also replace the nut butter and with a scoop of hemp seeds, chia seeds, or flaxseed.

Let me know what variations you try!
