Dahlia Rimmon,


Green Spinach Smoothie

by Dahlia Rimmon, Food Blogger

Dahlia Rimmon,

This is one of my favorite drinks to have after I work out at the beginning of the day but it's really good anytime when you want to recharge your batteries. This was originally created when I wanted a breakfast (or snack) option that was light and condensed, packed with vitamins and minerals, and easy to take on the go. It's great for those of you who are not necessarily hungry in the morning but who want to start incorporating breakfast into your daily diet. Not only is my recipe simple and fast to make, the pretty green color is so appetizing and tastes yummy.

Dahlia Rimmon,

Prep Time 10 minutes or less
Cook Time 0 minutes
Makes 1 Servings

Dahlia Rimmon,

  • 1 frozen ripe banana, sliced
  • 2 packed cups of fresh baby spinach
  • 1/4 c. cow or nut milk
  • 3 T. (or 1 extra-large spoonful) plain Greek yogurt
  • Handful of ice
Dahlia Rimmon,


1. Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth and creamy
2. Pour into a cup or for extra fun use a mason jar and enjoy!


1. It's easier to cut into a frozen banana if you let it thaw a bit 3-4 minutes before slicing. Another method is to slice before freezing.

2. Use more ice for a thicker smoothie consistency and less ice for a thinner drink.
3. Depending on the blender, you may have to add more milk for a smoother blending process.
4. For a more consistent (non-chunky) smoothie, use a high-power blender such as a Nutribullet or Vitamix.
5. For a sweeter smoothie you can add vanilla Greek yogurt instead of plain.
5. As another option, try adding a tablespoon of peanut butter which will add even more great taste to this health drink.

I have to admit I have never tried a green smoothie like this... But I am sure it would be a great way for me to get my veggies.

I actually love green smoothies. If I put any greens in mine, it's also spinach. I actually really like spinach and I think it makes smoothies taste really good.

Interesting smoothie. A great way to stay healthy but I am not sure I would drink it. Who knows though, I could ! :)

This smoothie sounds so healthy! I'm with you on the color too, it's a very pretty green! I've never had a spinach based smoothie before but I think it would be fun to try this out as a post workout treat. ;)

I've never tried to do a spinach shake. I am trying to eat healthier and this doesn't look too bad so I may have to try it.

I love a good green shake! Some days it is so hard to get all the veggies in that I need- and this is always my fallback!

Unknown said...

Do you feel that bullet blender is essential? Will a regular blender do?

Just last year I would never think milk and spinach paired so well. Now, I love spinach in my smoothies as well!

Yes, spinach is a mild-tasting leafy green so its great for smoothies, it gives it a beautiful color!
