Simple Green Smoothie is what you need in the morning especially after you have tons of cookies and cakes at a night party. It will help renew your body because it is a real health booster. This is definitely far from smoothies loaded with calories. This is one of the lightest smoothies ever, yet as yummy as kids’ favorite smoothies. If you have problems about getting enough fresh fruit and greens in your family diet, packing them in a smoothie is the best thing to do. Nobody in your family will refuse this wonderfully green and healthy smoothie!
This is a simple green smoothie because you just throw everything in the food processor and run it until smooth. This is definitely an adaptable recipe, but I want to share my favorite way of it. I understand if you haven’t tried a green smoothie before and feel skeptical about it. I guarantee you will be surprised when you have the first sip from this smoothie. Spinach gives that nice color to it, but it is nothing more than that color in this smoothie. You can’t taste it at all. It is like vanilla flavored banana and citrus smoothie painted with green color. Well, if you don’t say, nobody can realize spinach in it.
This Simple Green Smoothie is so fresh and packed with very healthy ingredients. Besides spinach, avocado is the other surprising ingredient. No need to talk about the health benefits of avocado, right? I love the combination of avocado and spinach in sandwiches too. Go check our Spinach and Avocado Sandwich to get an idea about it. But if you don’t like eating spinach, hide it in a smoothie like this and enjoy.
Bananas I used in this simple green smoothie were so sweet, so I didn’t need to add any other sweetener. But I use honey when they are not ripe and sweet enough. Taste the smoothie and decide yourself if it needs any sweetener or not.
My last secret ingredient in this smoothie is fresh ginger. It helps the immune system and this is what everyone needs in winter.
You can have this smoothie either in the morning or as a snack during day. Just make sure you keep it in the fridge.
