Delicious and healthy! The whole family loved it. It turned out quite green but I told my little boys that we were drinking Incredible Hulk Smoothies and they thought they were great!
Delicious! I did 2 cups spinach, 1/2 a banana, and 8 ounces vanilla almond milk. I will make this over and over. Thanks for posting!!
This is awesome, try it!!!! Thank you so much I would never have thought of putting spinach into a smoothie. It also works well with a little pineapple thrown in and a little stevia to sweeten. I love that I can use this as a base for my normal protein smoothie. Anything can be added to this, thank you so much for sharing =)
I am not the biggest spinach fan but I need my dark leafy greens and this smoothie masks the taste of the spinach PERFECTLY. I used a danon lite n fit yogurt, toasted coconut vanilla flavor, and used unsweetened almond milk in place of water. This came out like a green pina colada! I halved the spinach and banana (my bananas were BIG) but used the whole 6oz of yogurt and a half a yogurt container of almond milk. Great recipe!
I tried this then experimented on my own since I don't care for the dairy products . I like mine with a little less spinach. I used one cup to one banana and added a cup of rice milk. It is very good.
Instead of contaminating it with dairy which is full of fat and other unmentionable nasties, why not just stick to two ingredients, banana's and spinach? I have 6 or more banana's and two large handfuls of spinach. Lots of healthy carbs and protein and it will fill you till lunch time.
Very tasty! I froze my banana and added 3 frozen strawberries. I also subbed greek yogurt and added some protein powder to give it a protein boost. You defintely can't taste the spinach and I love the nutrition boost from it!
I LOVE this recipe, and make it all the time. Great for slurping down on the drive to work, and gives me SO MUCH energy! No mid-morning slump for me! The only changes I make from the original recipe is that I freeze my banana to make it extra frosty, and add a handful of frozen strawberries as well. I've tried other fruit additions, but nothing tastes as good to me as the strawberries. Quite often, if using it as a meal replacement, I'll add a serving of flax seed meal. Don't be intimidated by the spinach. Fresh spinach has a very mild flavor. The health benefits are totally worth the weird looks you'll get drinking this bright green concoction!
Very tasty! I'm a nursing mother and always looking for ways to eat more fruits and veggies. This recipe is quick, easy, and surprisingly good. Thanks for sharing! :)
This was suprisingly good. I am not a big smoothie lover. When I saw this recipe, I thought I would give it a try. I am trying to find ways to include more fruit and veggies to my daily diet. I did use skim milk instead of water and added a little drop of honey.
