Strawberry Banana Spinach Smoothie in Minutes

 

It’s time for another simple, delicious, and healthy smoothie recipe!

This nutritionally balanced strawberry banana spinach smoothie is packed with a mix of whole food ingredients containing all of the macronutrients (fats, carbs, and proteins) and loads of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). The spinach takes a classic smoothie combo of strawberries and banana up a notch with a dose of green goodness.

I love the flavour of this satisfying smoothie and it’s just so easy to whip up, even for the most novice smoothie-makers! 

 

Absolutely! Smoothies can often be very fruit-forward so adding in some veggie or leafy-green goodness is always a plus in my books!

Spinach has a ton of nutrients and health benefits which I share more of below, so it makes a great, healthy addition to many smoothies and won’t affect the overall flavour very much at all.

Strawberry Banana Spinach Smoothie

Yield: 2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

This delicious smoothie is dairy free, gluten free, and can be plant-based too. A perfect balanced breakfast or snack!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 small bananas (frozen is best for a creamy smoothie consistency)*
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 scoops vegan vanilla protein powder or 1/4 cup collagen peptides (not vegan, but a great option if you want added protein without the flavour)

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until completely smooth.
  2. Divide between two glasses and enjoy!

Notes

*Peel and cut banana into chunks then add to a freezer bag and freeze. Use for smoothies whenever needed. Frozen bananas vs. fresh bananas, add a delicious, creamy consistency to smoothies.

*Cut the recipe in half for single serving.

  • I didn’t know frozen bananas make for a smoother smoothie. I have some in the freezer for making 1-ingredient banana “ice cream”. Now I can use them for something else. Thanks for the tip!
