Super Simple Spinach Smoothie

Updated: Apr 12, 2021



I’m not really a smoothie person. Years ago, when smoothies were all the rage and I was still a student, I tried to be. But at the end of the day I really prefer to savour a meal. I think I miss out on the experience of actually eating when I have a smoothie instead. Plus there’s just so many possibilities that it can be overwhelming! Think about all the add-in potential! There are seeds, oats, dates, nut butters, fruits etc. Your humble glass can suddenly be transformed into an energy-dense drink that rivals the caloric value of a large breakfast. There’s really nothing wrong with this, but here are a few things to keep in mind when including smoothies in your diet.


Keep it simple. Make a simple smoothie and pair it with solid food like whole-grain toast with natural nut butter.

If you are a total smoothie lover and enjoy the convenience, then you can use it as a meal replacement, but make sure it’s balanced. Try to hit each of our food groups:

  • Whole grains (oats)

  • Protein food (Greek yogurt)

  • Veg or fruit (frozen cauliflower, spinach, berries, bananas etc.)

That said, my husband is team smoothie. He has one every morning on his way to work as a supplement to his breakfast. So I decided to share his recipe here. Super simple, super easy.
