Green Protein Power Smoothie

If you are looking for a smoothie packed full of goodness and tastes delicious then this is it. You can adjust the measurements to your own taste and/or what you have on hand. There’s no hard and fast rule with smoothies! You will learn what you like and simply measure to feel and adjust as you like. So measurements are a guide only, but a great base to start. To make smoothies easier too, you can prepare in advance and have ‘servings’ already ready in the freezer. So you can simply grab out the container/bag and throw it in your blender, then grab your pantry and fridge items and blend. I’m all about efficiency! 🙂

Green Protein Power Smoothie

Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or milk of choice) (if you prefer, you can omit and just at more water)
  • 1/2 – 1 cup cold water (adjust as needed)
  • 1 fresh or frozen banana (frozen creates a thicker consistency) If you don't like banana, replace with 1/2 avocado but want your smoothie smooth and silky
  • 1 handful ice (the more you include, the thicker your smoothie)
  • 1 tbsp yoghurt of choice (I like Greek or coconut)
  • 1 handful fresh spinach or kale or serve of frozen
  • 1/2 stalk celery

  • 1 tsp rice malt syrup / maple syrup
  • 1 serve collagen (optional) (I like nutra organics: https://nutraorganics.com.au/products/collagen-beauty
  • OPTIONAL TOPPINGS: for extra texture/crunch: flaxmeal / LSA, hemp seeds, dark chocolate/cacao nibs, shredded coconut, almond flakes (anything goes!)

Instructions
 

  • Literally throw everything into a high power blender and blitz until smooth. Adjust liquid as needed. Add more liquid if you like it thinner or more ice if you want it thick and creamy and to eat with a spoon!
    ENJOY!
