Deliciously Simple Green Smoothie Recipe

Apr 08, 2014 @ Project Juice

Long before discovering the awesomeness of cold-pressed juices, I was a dedicated  smoothie drinker. Recently, I have been adding this blended treat back into my life and I’m loving every green sip of it.

Nothing can compare to the nutrient punch from a cold-pressed juice, but smoothies have their place too! Here’s my favorite green smoothie recipe.

  • 1 large frozen banana (peel your bananas before freezing)
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1.5 cups of frozen spinach
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • dash of sea salt, cayenne or cinnamon to taste

** I use frozen ingredients because I don’t have an ice maker. You can definitely use fresh and then add a cup of ice to give your smoothie a nice cold, frothy consistency.

Optional Add-ons:

Powdered Greens: I love Green Vibrance for its incredible probiotic and digestive enzymes strength.

Protein Powder: My go-to protein powder is Epic because it is a raw, organic, powerful plant protein that tastes great.

What’s your favorite add-on you like to include in your smoothies?
