There’s no better way to start your day than with this delicious green smoothie! It’s quick and easy to make (there’s only one step!) and it’s a great way to sneak more veggies in for the day. It’s my favorite breakfast go-to, especially when I have a busy morning ahead of me.
I’m super excited to share my favorite green smoothie recipe with you! Ever since I started drinking this green goodness, I’ve noticed a huge difference in my energy levels. Coffee might give you a caffeine boost, but do you notice you tend to “crash” after a few hours? Yeah, me too. That’s why I opt for healthy shakes most mornings. But you can make this smoothie any time of the day! Great to bring with you to the office for lunch or as a before-dinner snack. If you aren’t a fan of bananas or mangos, you can switch it out for other fruits like pineapples too! It’s completely customizable, and I’ll lay out your options below. Hope you enjoy!
What You Need To Make This Healthy Green Smoothie
Frozen Banana – Frozen bananas are a big ingredient in this shake. They offer the perfect amount of sweetness and incredible texture. You can also substitute this for an extra cup of frozen mangos!
Frozen Mango – Mangos are delightfully sweet and blends perfectly with the bananas in this recipe.
Spinach – Both fresh and frozen spinach will work! Whichever is easier for you to get your hands on, toss it in your green smoothie shake for those extra vitamins and minerals.
Avocado – It’s a great way to add in some healthy fats!
Customize This Green Smoothie Recipe
- Go banana-less: Substitute an additional cup of frozen mango or one cup of frozen pineapple.
- Add protein: Use either one scoop of your favorite unflavored or vanilla protein powder, or throw in a few tablespoons of hemp seeds (they’re impressively high in protein!)
- Substitute Spinach: I get it – not everyone loves this leafy green! If you prefer, you could use chard or kale in its place.
- Other Healthy Smoothie Add-ins: Consider adding in flax seeds, chia seeds, maca powder, or oats for a different take on my favorite green smoothie!
