This is one of my favorite go-to green smoothies. I love it because it can be created using simple ingredients you probably already have on hand. Nothing fancy, just simple, yummy, green deliciousness.
I also love this smoothie because there is a nice blend of sweetness to balance out the savory “green” flavor of the spinach, romaine, and celery, which makes it perfectly satisfying. The fiber in this smoothie also helps keep you full until lunch, and it makes a little extra for a quick snack on the run.
Try starting your morning out with this go-to smoothie if you want to feel light, energized, satisfied and ready to start your day!
All you need is the following ingredients, blender, and less than 5 minutes. Enjoy!
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups loose spinach (raw)
- 1 small head romaine lettuce
- 2 stalks of organic celery
- 1 small-to-medium banana
- 1 small apple (or pear)
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
Roughly chop the romaine and celery and place it in a high-speed blender with the spinach and water. Blend on high until smooth. Add chopped apple, banana, and lemon. Blend again until smooth. Pour into a big glass or mason jar and you are ready to go!
UPDATE: The Go-To Green Smoothie is Famous!!
I was recently asked onto WCAX to make Green Smoothies live on the air – so much fun! Catch the segment here (p.s. get ready to watch a little snippet of a Vermont small business, or rocking chair salesman or other fun ad before the segment – it’s worth the wait though I swear!)
