Green Smoothie

The Green Smoothie is one of my favorites because it's filled with substance! Smoothies are endless, so please, don't let this one be it for you, although it is a staple for me because the ingredients and measurements are locked into my brain. Here's the one I demonstrated last night at the class.

1 apple
1 banana (this makes it creamy)
a handful of spinach (or any leafy green)
1/2 cup frozen fruit (berries will turn it into a different color, but still delicious!)
3 tbsp. hemp seeds
2 tbsp. flax seeds
almond milk to desired consistency
a pinch of cinnamon

Blend until smooth!

I enjoy this as my entire meal for breakfast. I haven't touched coffee in years and yet, I don't have that 1 o'clock tired feeling. My daughter really enjoys these as well. The picture above was of her over a year ago drinking a smoothie. This one was made with blueberries.


  1. I tried this today! It was great. I had frozen blueberries but also had fresh blackberries and raspberries so i used those too. Yummy! What a great way to get the kids to eat spinach! Thanks for the idea.

  2. You're welcome! Glad you enjoyed it!
