My Go-to Smoothies

I am obsessed with smoothies and have been for the last few years – especially when I think back to my busy college days. They are easy to whip up, you can sneak vegetables inside without altering the flavor, and they are so satisfying for any sweet tooth. Typically the base of my smoothie is just water, bananas and a leafy green. From there I incorporate a protein powder, vitamins and sometimes a bit of fat from avocado or peanut butter. I usually switch between a chocolate and a green smoothie to keep things interesting, but there are other recipes I try out sometimes too.

So here are 2 smoothies I usually make:

Green Goddess Smoothie

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 cup of spinach/kale
  • 1/4 cup of mango
  • 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Powder
  • 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Green Super Food
  • 1 tbs of chia seeds
  • optional: 1/2 avocado

Chocolate Smoothie

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1 tbs of cacao powder
  • 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Powder
  • 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Green Superfood
  • 1 tbs of chia seeds
  • Either: 1/4 cup of blueberries or 1 tbs of peanut butter

And there you have it! Two smoothies that can be made in advance of right before you run out the door for work. Let me know if you have you own go to recipes that you can’t be without.

  2. My wife loves vegetable smoothie a lot. One cant deny the enormous health benefits that brings to the table. I , somehow, have never developed a liking for it though. 😦
