Ingredients

  • 8 oz frozen strawberries *see note below
  • 3 oz frozen ripe banana pieces *the riper the sweeter!
  • 1 scoop vegan/gluten free chocolate protein powder *see note below
  • 1 & ½ cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk *or milk of choice
  • 1 cup spinach *see note below

Recipe notes: 

Frozen strawberries: to save time, you can buy frozen strawberries at the store rather than freezing them yourself. I like to keep a big bag of berries in the freezer at all times during the summer months so I can make smoothies on demand whenever I'm craving a cold, sweet treat!
Chocolate protein powder: I use the Vega One brand (nutrition info below is based on this). Want more chocolate flavor? I highly recommend adding 1-2 teaspoons of cocoa powder to your smoothie! It's so delicious, doesn't add many calories and is great for satisfying chocolate cravings.  
Spinach: extend the life of spinach by freezing before it wilts. Simply place leaves in a Ziploc bag and remove as much air as possible. Freeze for 2-3 months and use in all your summer smoothies!

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a large blender.
  • Blend on high speed for 30 seconds or until mixture is smooth. (*Tip: if necessary, you can add a dash more almond milk or water to get the consistency you prefer. You can also add a bit of ice to make your smoothie extra thick)!
  • Portion smoothie mixture into two 16-ounce glasses.
  • Add toppings like sliced strawberries, bananas, chia seeds or granola if desired.
  • Enjoy!
