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!

  • 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)


  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
