This vanilla green protein smoothie with spinach and whey protein powder takes 5 minutes to make! Serve it for a quick snack after exercise or breakfast.
- 1 small ripe banana, peeled and broken in half
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach
- 1 serving vanilla protein powder (1/2 to 1 scoop)
- 1/2 cup ice
- Combine all ingredients in blender. Puree and pulse on high to combine for 10 to 15 seconds until all ingredients are roughly chopped. Puree continuously on high until completely smooth and the spinach is completely pureed, 40 to 45 seconds. Serve immediately.
Protein Powder Alternative:
No protein powder, no problem! Substitute the protein powder with non-fat Greek yogurt instead. Each serving of non-fat plain Greek yogurt has about 17 grams of protein. If you want even more protein, add a spoonful of your favorite nut butter.
