Healthy ‘Green Machine’ Smoothie

Hello all! Have an appetite for a yummy, vitamin-filled smoothie?! Then you are in for a treat! Today I will be showing you how to make my personal favorite green smoothie that is filled with healthy ingredients- nothing fake!

I hate when I am craving a smoothie at a restaurant because I can never trust what they put in them! With all of the added sweeteners and unhealthy ingredients, I might as well just make one myself. Not only can this recipe be made for a simple smoothie drink, a delicious and filling smoothie bowl can be made as well! With just a few simple steps and endless options for ingredients, a green machine is ready to be devoured!

Ingredients:

  • Frozen mango and peaches (or any frozen fruit, pineapple is also very delicious!)
  • 1 spotty banana
  • A handful of spinach
  • 1 tbsp chia seed
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed (optional)
  • 1/2 or 1 full scoop of vanilla protein powder (I used Vega)
  • Almond or coconut milk (according to how thick you want it)

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in blender starting with fruit and spinach and topping with milk.
  2. Blend for 45 seconds to 1 minute (I used a Ninja with the medium setting)
  3. Either put into a glass or a bowl. I put mine into a bowl topped with some of my favorite fruits, granola, more chia seeds, and coconut shreds!)
  4. Enjoy!VSCO Cam-2.jpg
