Cookin’: Spinach, Berry, Banana, Protein Smoothie

I may be late to the game, but I just tried my first spinach smoothie last month. Weren’t spinach smoothies a “thing” in the blogging world like two years ago? Whatever.

I tried it, I adapted it, I got hooked and now I want to share my go-to, post-workout recovery smoothie with you. Let’s blend this bad boy up.

1. This first step is important: blend your milk and spinach first. Get it nice and smoothe so you don’t get any spinach chunks.

2.Add the rest of the ingredients. Really, that’s it. (Note: If you use a frozen banana, you will need a bit more milk than when using a fresh banana.)

Six ingredients and two steps for a protein powerhouse smoothie. Yes, it may be scary looking, but just go with it. It’s delicious. Then, if you want to be super awesome put one of these to-go lids on your hipster mason jars.

    Can you taste the vanilla from the Perfect Fit protein powder?

  3. LOVE spinach smoothies! My fav is one that was inspired by a Carrots N Cake smoothie that she calls a gingerbread smoothie. I use fresh spinach, frozen banana, raw almond butter, almond milk, vanilla whey protein, cinnamon, nutmeg and Healthforce Nutritionals Maca Force Vanilla Spice (which tastes like ginger). Such a delicious breakfast!
