Spinach and Fruit Protein Smoothie Recipe

 

Everyone has heard that eating spinach is good for you, but when you add it to your smoothies in the morning it will change your life! This is a spinach and fruit protein smoothie recipe that you will want to try.

Everyone who gets totally immersed into the raw food diet phenomena or vegetarian lifestyle eventually discovers the power of greens in the morning, especially when it comes to smoothies. I for one am a huge maniac fanatic nut job when it comes to my morning greens in a glass, and have come up with some really great combinations that make me look forward to my breakfasts in a glass!

But, I must confess that in all my exuberance, that I sometimes get so carried away in making my morning smoothie and making sure I put everything in it that I want, that I get forgetful of the basics. …like for instance, forgetting to put the top on the blender. Kids, don’t try this at home!

I guess you could say that even in all of my experience that I am still at times a little green behind the ears. Not to worry though. I think I have that solved. The index card that is now taped securely in front of the blender controls helps a great deal. :-)

This is one of my favorite smoothies because it is crammed full of protein and healthy carbohydrates.  Everything that goes into my smoothies is organic, so when I list something, always assume it is organic:

Fruit of the day Smoothie

Add to blender:
16 ounces filtered water – room temperature
8 ounces fresh baby leaf spinach
2 tablespoons coconut oil (olive oil works as well if you don’t have coconut oil)

Blend thoroughly until spinach is fully processed in the water and it look like a dark green lagoon.

Add to blender:
1 tablespoon raw brown rice protein powder
1 tablespoon raw hemp seed protein powder
1 tablespoon raw yellow pea protein powder
1 teaspoon raw maca powder

Blend thoroughly until dark green lagoon lightens up and looks more lime green than dark green.

Add to blender:
2 ripe bananas
1 ripe mango
1/2 cup blueberries

Blend thoroughly

Add to blender:
1 cup of ice or to taste or the temperature you like best

Blend thoroughly and pour into tall glass… don’t dribble … especially if you tend to wear white t-shirts.
