Green Protein Smoothie

🍃 Green Protein Smoothie 🍌

Check out this green protein shake recipe:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (@califiafarms) [you can use any milk you’d like]

2 cups spinach

1/2-1 cup greek yogurt (Siggi’s is my fave)

1/2 Tablespoon hemp seeds

1 banana 🍌(peeled) 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon ground

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg ground ⠀ ⠀

1 Tablespoon Almond Butter ⠀ ⠀

▶️Add all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth (about 50 seconds in Blendtec). If it’s too thick just add some water. Enjoy!

Not all of my clients like to add yogurt to their smoothies.  Give it a try and see if you like it. If you don’t, some other good options for a protein source are: nuts, seeds, tofu, kale, kefir, oats or protein powder, just to name a few!

My fave yogurt brand is @siggisdairy.  High protein, low fat, no weird ingredients, tastes great!  I have 1/2 cup to 1 cup listed in the recipe above   That’s because it depends on how much you are working out and what your goals are for gaining muscle.

👉🏻You can also add 1 Tablespoon of chia seeds which will make the smoothie thicker.  Or 1/4 or an avocado. 🥑

👉🏻If you want a sweeter smoothie:

Add stevia or monk fruit, or add an additional 1/2 of a banana or 1 date.  Be mindful of how much sugar you are intaking.

👉🏻If you want to add more healthy fats: use 1/8 of an avocado. This will also make the smoothie thicker.

👉🏻If you want a thinner smoothie add more milk or add 1/2 cup of water 💦 or coconut 🥥 water.

👉🏻Optional add ins: 1 scoop of superfood or green powder, 1/2 cup of kale or parsley.

👉🏻Want more quick energy/carbs: add 1 Tablespoon or up to 1/4 cup of raw rolled oats.
