Easy Green Goddess Smoothie

Healthy green smoothie recipes that aren’t loaded with sugar and still taste delicious are few and far between. 

In fact most that I’ve tried have been barely (if not un) drinkable.

So when I discovered this combo (and felt like I’d made the best tasting green smoothie ever), I had to give it an appropriate name and share it with you.

There are so many popular green smoothie recipes online, but if you’re anything like me in the kitchen (and find it virtually impossible to follow a recipe), then no matter how much of a smoothie junkie you are, to save yourself from pulling sour faces and wasting food, I recommend sticking to a handful of very simple and easy green smoothie recipes, just like this one.

The Easy Green Goddess Smoothie Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 big handful of baby spinach
  • 1 banana
  • ½ lebanese cucumber
  • ½ celery stick
  • 1 cup of coconut milk or alternative liquid e.g. coconut water, water or almond milk

Instructions

  1. Rinse baby spinach and place in blender (ensure blender is turned off until step 5)
  2. Peel banana and break into chunks as you put it into the blender
  3. Rinse and chop the celery and cucumber into small chunks so that it blends easily and place into blender
  4. Pour your liquid – once blended feel free to add more or less liquid depending on your desired consistency. You can also add ice if you want it to be cooler
  5. Blend on high for about 30 seconds or until it looks smooth and creamy.

Optional add-ins for your simple green smoothie recipes:

  • Super foods such as chia seeds, macca powder, phsyllium husk or hemp seed protein.
  • Fresh herbs such as mint or parsley
  • Other fruits such as apple, papaya, pineapple or kiwifruit

Nutrition:

  • Banana – bananas are a great source of carbs; they’re low in fat, contain a fair amount of fibre and boast a suite of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, magnesium.
  • Baby spinach – pretty much the base of all easy green smoothies and another nutritional powerhouse; spinach is a high in protein and fibre, low in fat and contains vitamins and minerals including zinc, folate, magnesium, calcium and iron.
  • Coconut milk – a great non-dairy alternative and suitable for those with a lactose intolerance. Coconut milk contains fatty acids know help you lower cholesterol levels, improve blood pressure and prevent heart attacks or a stroke.
