This healthy green kale spinach smoothie is the perfect way to eat more nutrient-dense leafy greens! Made with frozen banana, protein powder, almond butter and your choice of mango and pineapple, it’s so delicious you’d never guess it’s packed with whole food ingredients. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (300 mL)
  • 1 cup or handful spinach (35 g, raw or frozen)
  • 1 cup or handful kale, leaves and stems (35 g, raw or frozen)
  • 1 medium frozen banana (120 g)
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango or pineapple chunks (70 g)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter or almond butter (15 g)
  • 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder (30 g)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, optional

Instructions

  1. Add the milk to your blender container then add the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Turn it on low then slowly increase the speed to high and blend until it’s completely smooth and creamy. If you need more liquid, slowly add additional plant-based milk to adjust the consistency.
  3. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Notes

This recipe makes 1 large green smoothie or 2 smaller smoothie suitable for a snack or sharing.

For the liquid, use any plant-based milk, water or coconut water.

For a low-calorie smoothie, omit the almond butter. For more calories, increase the nut butter to 2 tbsp.

Smoothie can be made up to 1 day in advance and stored in the fridge or you can add everything but the almond milk to a freezer-safe bag or container to speed things up when you’re ready to make it.

This smoothie is best with a high-speed blender. If you don’t have one, chop the banana into small rounds before freezing for easier blender. 

If you have kids that aren’t a fan of green foods, add 1/4 cup frozen blueberries to make it purple!
