Green Smoothie Recipe

“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, Twitter, and Facebook 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:)

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:

  • An orange
  • Half of a banana
  • 6 large strawberries
  • A few handfuls of spinach
  • Greek yogurt
  • Ice

I use plain Greek yogurt, it is my personal favorite, but any plain yogurt will do. I blend everything together in our blender and it is ready in no time. This green smoothie recipe makes 2 servings, so I put one in the freezer for later.

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large orange, peeled and segmented
  • 1/2 of a large banana, cut into chunks
  • 6 large strawberries
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup ice

Directions:

  1. 1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

Note-Make sure you use a powerful blender that will puree the orange, spinach, ice, etc. I like to store one serving of the smoothie in the freezer for later. Pour in an air-tight container and freeze. Make sure you take the smoothie out of the freezer about 30 minutes before you want to drink it. You can also store the smoothie in the refrigerator.
