Go GREEN with this Spinach Smoothie

Do you have a child in your life that won’t touch vegetables? Or were you one of those kids that sat at the table and tried to fold your green beans into a napkin so you wouldn’t have to eat your veggies? Have no fear, we have made a vegetable smoothie for all of you and it doesn’t taste one bit like vegetables.

We wanted to create a healthy breakfast smoothie that was also a great option for people looking for a vegan smoothie recipe or spinach smoothie recipe. We recently posted the Best Breakfast Smoothie Recipe on FFF and it didn’t have any greens in it, so we decided our next smoothie recipe had to be a filling and delicious green smoothie recipe.

Now, don’t get me wrong, you can make this smoothie at any time of the day not just for breakfast! We usually blend up a smoothie for a post workout snack or if we are craving a lighter fare for dinner as well. Check out all of our favorite smoothie options for other smoothie inspiration.

This healthy green smoothie is a full meal in a glass! We have covered your healthy fats, a couple servings of vegetables, and topped it off with a little bit of sweetness for the nanners and dates. We really didn’t miss a beat when developing this tasty glass of goodness. Check it out..

Green Smoothie Ingredients

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and chat about all the different layers of a green smoothie.

Greens are the superstar of this smoothie. If you aren’t always on top of your vegetable intake, green smoothies are a great way to sneak more veggies into your diet. There are so many options when it comes to getting your greens in. We used spinach for this green smoothie, but choose from any of the greens below- they will all do the trick!

Greens

  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Parsley
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Swiss Chard
  • Amazing Greens

Fruit +Vegetables

When it comes to smoothies, we try to use frozen fruit as often as we can. Fresh fruit works, too! However, if you are looking for a cold and creamy smoothie frozen fruit is the way to go. The less ice, the more flavor you have. The frozen fruit acts as the ice and the ‘meat’ of the smoothie! If we have extra bananas fruit that is on the edge, we like to slice up fresh fruit and freeze it for later. Check out our post on how to freeze bananas for a step by step process on freezing fruit! Until then, check out our go-to smoothie fruits and veggies below.

P.S. the secret to smoothie creaminess for this smoothie was definitely the avocado!

  • Frozen Triple Berry Mix
  • Frozen Strawberries
  • Frozen Bananas
  • Frozen Tropical mix
  • Frozen Avocado

Liquid

When it comes to liquid in smoothies, it’s all about personal preference! We are big almond milk people, here on FFF. You can make your green smoothie a little bit more tropical by using fruit juice or you could even add some extra greens by using your favorite green juice. Your options are endless!

  • Almond Milk
  • Coconut Milk
  • Orange Juice
  • Green Juice
  • 2 % Milk
  • Rice Milk
  • Pineapple

Fiber + Add Ins

The beauty of smoothies is that you can throw in anything that your body needs right into the blender! If you need more protein, add it! Need a little extra fiber? Go for it. We also really love adding a little extra crunch with our favorite granola or raw walnuts! Here are some of our favorite smoothie add ins!

  • Flax Meal
  • Chia Seeds
  • Vegan Protein Powder
  • Whey Protein Powder
  • Pea Protein
  • Granola
  • Raw Walnuts
  • Raw Almonds
