“Green Monster” Green Smoothie
Yesterday, I did my usual Body Combat workout and came home and made one of my favorite post-workout snacks – a Green Smoothie. I posted the photo on Instagram and got several requests for the recipe. So today I am sharing my favorite Green Smoothie recipe. Some people call the Green Smoothie a Green Monster, but I like to refer to mine as the Green Goblin:) It is an easy green smoothie recipe that is easy to blend up! You only need a few minutes!
My Green Smoothie Recipe
If you haven’t tried healthy green smoothies before, don’t be afraid. I promise it’s so good! Don’t be frightened by the green color or the spinach. You can’t even taste the spinach. It blends right in with the other flavors, you won’t even know it is there. For my green smoothie recipe, I use:
- frozen banana
- Greek yogurt
- splash of almond milk
I like to use frozen fruit so the smoothie will be thick and cold. If you are using fresh fruit, you can add ice to the blender.
I use plain Greek yogurt because I don’t want added sugars in my smoothie. The fruits will give the smoothie plenty of flavor and sweetness. I blend everything together in our blender and it is ready in no time.
If you want to keep the smoothie dairy-free and vegan, you can use all almond milk instead of the Greek yogurt. Almond milk works well too. If I use almond milk, I like to add vanilla protein powder to my smoothie to boost the protein.
You can use kale instead of spinach in this green smoothie recipe.
You can also boost the nutrients by adding in chia seeds, hemp hearts, bee pollen, and ground flaxseed. I will add in a few teaspoons of each.
If you are trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet, give this Green Smoothie a go. It is easy to make and is loaded with all kinds of good for you ingredients. I love sipping on a “Green Goblin” after my workouts. This green smoothie recipe is also great for breakfast or a healthy snack. Enjoy!
