Green Spinach Smoothie

by Dahlia Rimmon, Food Blogger

Dahlia Rimmon,

An Easy to Make Vegan or Dairy Active Lifestyle Health Drink

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.
