Everyday Green Smoothie
This is my go to smoothie, filled with spinach, bananas, kale, almond milk, chia seeds and other wholesome ingredients. It is a great breakfast on the go and the only recipe you need.
My mornings are usually smoothies. I like to sip on something while I get started with my day which mainly includes a bit of laptop work. Smoothies are filling and delicious, making for a perfect meal on the go. I consider this smoothie as a meal since it is packed with protein, fiber, carbs, vitamins and minerals.
This breakfast smoothie could also be a post workout smoothie for an immediate protein shot of goodness to keep those energy levels up and help rejuvenate the body. I love adding collagen into my smoothie but you could leave if you don’t consume it. The same goes with protein powder. I add protein if this smoothie is being consumed after a workout or sometimes before the workout as well.
The ingredients are straight forward and you can interchange them as you prefer. This is my go to recipe though, I mean I have this smoothie every second day if not everyday. I use spinach, kale, bananas, nut butter, almond milk, chia seeds, flax seeds (sometimes), cinnamon powder, turmeric powder (sometimes), protein powder, collagen and sometimes I add frozen blueberries as well. You can use frozen bananas for a creamier texture. I also like to top the smoothie with toasted nuts or granola but that is if I am really hungry as the smoothie is very filling.
You could use any fruits and nuts you like to make this, also the addition of celery is a great idea too. When it comes to taste you don’t taste the greens and the celery. I used almond milk but any milk you like works in this recipe. You can use any seeds you like but chia and flax seeds are good for you and create a thick textured smoothie. I used homemade peanut butter (you can find my recipe here) you can use any nut/seed butter you like and have at home.
I mean this is a one meal smoothie situation so you don’t need to eat anything with it but if you were feeling hungry have an avocado toast with this or raspberry jam on toast. I would also serve a fruit salad, hummus and carrot sticks/crackers with this. But nothing heavy.
Now that we have covered how to make this recipe, let us get blending. Happy Drinking Ninjas!
Everyday Green Smoothie
- Serving glass
- 1 Large banana

- 1/2 cup Almond milk
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon powder

Optional - I like to smear some peanut butter around the glass before pouring the smoothie into it.
- If you want it thicker, reduce the milk and let it sit for a couple of mins before drinking. The addition of flaxseeds also help thickening the smoothie.
- If you want it thinner, add more milk or water.
- You can use frozen banana to make it creamier.
- I like to top the smoothie with granola and some nuts but that’s optional.
