Spinach and Banana Power Smoothie

4.8
(77)

A vegan banana spinach smoothie that is quick, easy, and surprisingly delicious. I make one of these tasty treats for myself every morning for breakfast, and it powers me all the way until lunch. I love the mild sweetness of the banana, but if you want it sweeter you could add sugar. I've also added different flavors like ginger, cinnamon, apple, or any number of ingredients. Raw vegans can substitute raw almond milk for the soy. Feel free to experiment with different versions, and enjoy the pure energy that comes from eating fresh, good-for-you food!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain soy milk

  • ¾ cup packed fresh spinach leaves

  • 1 large banana, sliced

Directions

  1. Blend soy milk and spinach together in a blender until smooth. Add banana and pulse until thoroughly blended.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute vanilla soy milk for the plain soy milk, if desired.

Most of us have heard how good spinach is for us. But let's be honest, no one really wants to eat spinach salad every day. Bananas are truly a miracle food because you won't even taste the greens in this smoothie! It's a great way to reap all the nutrition benefits of fresh spinach without even realizing you're eating it.
