Superfood Green Smoothie that’s protein packed, full of flavor and nutrients, and the perfect afternoon pick me up! Filled with superfoods, this will beat any Jamba Juice smoothie.
I recently got my wisdom teeth out, and let me tell ya- IT HURTS LIKE A MOTHER (you know what).
Thankfully, I only had to get the top two out, so it wasn’t SUPER painful, but it still hurt. For the first few days, I was living a Halo Top, smoothie bowl, yogurt, and smoothie diet. I couldn’t chew any veggies, and even yogurt was hard for me.
As someone who LOVES getting in their greens and eating giant salads, not being able to chew for a couple of days was very difficult. Besides not being able to chew, I also couldn’t workout, which used to freak me the heck out. I had to lay in bed for days, and had no source of energy output.
So, what did I do? I thought of recipes. Lots and LOTS of recipes. One of them happened to be this green smoothie, which I whipped up almost as soon as I created it. It’s minimal ingredients and very quick to make, which is absolutely perfect. Too many times I’ve thought of recipes and then realized it’s 20 ingredients and will take an hour to make, which is no bueno (sorry if I spelled that wrong- I take french).
This smoothie was a LIFESAVER for me when I got my wisdom teeth out. Not only was it quick, it was easy to swallow and packed full of nutrients. I never add spinach to my smoothies, and I think I will because this was SO DARN GOOD. I couldn’t even taste it, but I knew it was incredibly good for me. Even my sister, who hates veggies, told me she enjoyed this and couldn’t taste the spinach. That’s when you know it’s a winner.
Alright, let’s dig in!
- 1 banana, frozen
- 1 scoop protein powder of choice
- 3 handfuls of spinach
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tbsp hemp hearts
- ¼ cup greek yogurt
- ½ cup almond milk
- In a high power blender, combine all the ingredients except the spinach. Blend until everything has combined, then add the spinach and blend again until the chunks are done.
- Pour in a cup and enjoy!
