The classic smoothie combo turned into a veggie packed green smoothie!
1 cup liquid of choice, I love either fresh orange juice, ginger kombucha, or canned coconut milk
1 ripe banana, peeled and broken into 1” pieces
2 cups frozen strawberries, 8 ounces
2–4 cups spinach, see notes
Optional: dash of vanilla extract
1 Teaspoon Hawaiian spirulina, see notes
1–2 Tablespoons chia seeds or flax meal
Add the ingredients to a high powered blender in the order listed.
Secure the lid, and blend starting on low and working up to high speed.
Blend on high until completely smooth, about 1 minute.
Enjoy right away for the best flavor!
– The color of this smoothie varies every time I make it because strawberries really vary with how red they are.-
If you’re new to green smoothies, start with the least amount of greens, (or even less if it’s not to your taste). I’ve found over time I like to add more and more greens to my smoothies. But this was definitely not the case when I first started drinking them.
I like to use Hawaiian spirulina because it’s the only spirulina I’ve ever used that never has a fishy taste or smell!
The nutritional information was calculated with orange juice, 2 cups spinach, and chia seeds.
