This is a favorite go-to easy breakfast treat! Surprised to hear that a green smoothie is a treat?—You haven’t tried the right recipe yet.
I personally love this one.
What you’ll need:
- 1 banana
- 2/3 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/3 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup of water
- 2 large handfuls of organic baby spinach (it is much more tender)
Step by Step:
1. Add the spinach and water to your blender and pulse until pureed.
2. Add the banana and frozen fruit and pulse until pureed.
3. Serve and enjoy!
This recipe makes 1 large smoothie or 2 small ones (perfect for an afternoon snack to share). My 2.5 year old is particularly fond of this smoothie, so mine is usually divided into two.
I’ve read that for optimal nutrient absorption, your green smoothie should be consumed by itself and you should not have eaten 40 minutes prior or again for 40 minutes after. You won’t mind! The smoothie is incredibly filling and lasts me well until lunchtime.
Give it a try! You might be surprised.
