This creamy, protein-packed green smoothie is very simple to make and only takes a few minutes. We’ve shared a basic recipe below with optional ingredients after that. If you are looking for a substitute for the Greek yogurt, simply leave it out or replace with more fruit (frozen berries are our favorite).
1 medium banana, peeled
1/2 medium orange, peeled and quartered
1/4 to 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup milk, unsweetened almond milk, or unsweetened coconut milk
2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup mixed frozen berries
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal or shelled hemp hearts
1 tablespoon natural peanut or almond butter, try our homemade peanut butter
1 to 2 teaspoons pure honey
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy, adding more milk or fruit to thin or thicken the smoothie. Serve immediately or freeze to enjoy later.
