Mixed Berry Banana Smoothie

The Greek yogurt gives this smoothie its 15 grams of protein, you can add to that by using protein powder, if desired. This is a great way to start your day with a serving of green leafy vegetables as well!

Ingredients:

  • 1 c spinach, fresh
  • 1 c vanilla unsweetened almond milk (or the milk or other liquid of your choice)
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1/2 c of nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 c frozen mixed berries
  • Optional: protein powder or smoothie starter (I love this vanilla one from Kura
  • Optional: honey (1 TB) or chopped pitted dates (1-2), if desired for extra sweetness

Directions:

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until desired consistency, adding ice or more liquid if necessary.

Make Ahead Tip:

You can place the spinach, berries and 1/2 banana in freezer bags ahead of time, and just pull one out for each day!
