Green Smoothie

A few weeks ago, I shared my new-found love for green smoothies, and several of you asked for my recipe. Well, today is the day!

I honestly considered if whether or not this even warranted a whole blog post because it’s that easy. There are hundreds of variations out there on the Web and on Pinterest, but the combination that has worked well for me includes the following:

1 banana
1 cup of spinach
2 cups of water
1 cup of your preferred frozen fruit

See?! It’s a no-brainer combination for me since I’m not a morning person, and this allows me to mindlessly go to the fridge and get all the ingredients. I know several people also add some almond milk or protein powder to their smoothies for a creamier texture, but I prefer water so it is more of a true fruit smoothie and it ensures I’m getting two cups of water right away in the morning.

If you try out a green smoothie, be sure to share a picture with me on Instagram! I’d love to see how they turn out and hear of any new delicious pairings you all come up with.
