Smoothies are a great way of getting a whole lot of goodness in just one glass, and this Green Monster *super* Smoothie recipe has to be one of the most nutritious of all. At first I didn’t believe that a smoothie made with GREEN VEGETABLES could taste good but oh my how I was wrong.. this smoothie is super delicious as well as being nutritious and I caught my sister’s reaction to it on camera for you all to see (just click the video!).
This green monster smoothie is crammed with antioxidants, vitamins (including vitamins A & C), minerals (including calcium & iron) and fibre and provides just 98 calories per glass (this recipe serves 2).
You can also add a scoop of protein powder to make it the perfect *post work-out* smoothie!
- 1 frozen banana (peel it first!)
- 1 small handful (1/2 cup) blueberries
- 2 small handfuls (1 cup) spinach
- 200ml milk - I used unsweetened almond milk
- Optional - Scoop of protein powder
Add half the frozen banana to your blender along with the blueberries, half of the spinach and all of the milk
Add the other half of the frozen banana and the rest of the spinach (add the optional protein powder now!)
Serve & enjoy!
P.S I always get asked what blender I have and it’s a waring pro blender.. it’s fantastic and great if you make smoothies several times a week (it’s heavy duty!). Check out Amazonfor more blending options!
*You can even freeze the smoothie! – this has a few more added blueberries in it too
