This Green Protein Power Smoothie is healthy, filling, and absolutely delicious. A great kick start to your day or post workout snack!
T-minus two days and my kids are back in school. Which means back to a normal routine for them…and me!
This also means a more regular workout schedule in the morning and healthier breakfasts like this Green Protein Power Smoothie. It’s been my go-to for the last week or so in this sweltering heat and I’m in love.
Spinach is a superfood; loaded with nutrients and low-calorie. It’s important for skin, hair, and bone health. Spinach leaves also provide essential protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals.
Spinach is my favorite leafy green, and such an anomaly. I laugh every single time I cook with it – start with about 400 leaves and end up with what looks like three. And how completely odd that in a salad, it has a very distinct flavor, but when blended in a smoothie, you can’t even detect it’s there!
So for all you spinach haters, no worries! You can’t even taste it in this smoothie. It just lends itself to the nutritional value and beautiful color.
You wouldn’t think that a combination of spinach, banana, grapes, and pineapple juice would taste good. But it does. It really does! Those ingredients, along with plain Greek yogurt and a little honey are what make up this simple smoothie.
This Green Protein Power Smoothie is a great way to start off your morning, as a snack after you exercise, or even an on-the-go light lunch!
