If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I am obsessed with a good green smoothie.
My body craves them from time to time so I try to make one at least every week but two times a year I actually do a community GREEN SMOOTHIE CHALLENGE.
This just means that we, as a group, drink one green smoothie a day on top of what you normally eat. I love doing it first thing before consuming anything else so that my blood is rushed with high quality nutrition before any other food enters my system.
I have absolutely loved trying different flavor combos and this one has to be my actual favorite! It's refreshing, sweet enough, packed with antioxidants, greens and protein. I love the slight hint of coconut and lemon that comes through too.
It's super easy to make, just blend all of the ingredients together & serve chilled! If you need substitutions see my notes below! Hope you enjoy this smoothie.
If you make it, please tag me on Instagram so I can repost!
Here's a video tutorial for you visual people!
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 scoop vanilla protein
I used my favorite Nuzest Clean Vanilla Protein
It's vegan, tastes delicious & only uses a few simple ingredients! Use code recipes4health to save you some cash.
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Large handful of spinach (about 1-2 cups)
Large handful of kale (about 1-2 cups)
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Blend everything in a high powered blender & enjoy!
Swap the blueberries for frozen strawberries or mixed berries.
I use canned coconut milk (its much creamier) but you could use regular or another plant based milk. I think oat milk would work best in this recipe.
Any vanilla protein powder will work!
Sub the chia seeds for any other healthy fat like hemp seeds or flaxseeds!
If you don't have both greens on hand just double up on one of them! I love to store my spinach in the freezer, that way its always cold and ready for smoothies!
Lemon juice can be omitted but I highly recommend it as it tastes really refreshing and gives it a zest.
