Do you love the idea of packing the green stuff into your smoothie but always dislike the taste? Then you need to try this Vegan Green Smoothie! It's stuffed full of healthy ingredients including spinach but is creamy, sweet & delicious!
PREP TIME: 6 minutesminutes
TOTAL TIME: 6 minutesminutes
Servings: 1large smoothie
1medium or largefrozen banana
2tablespoonsnut or seed butter, (I like peanut butter best in this because it hides the spinach flavour better ;O)
Blend until smooth and creamy. Add a little more milk if you prefer a thinner consistency.
If you aren't sure whether you will need the extra sweetness from the maple syrup/medjool date, just make it without first, taste, then add if required, making sure to give the blender a quick blend to incorporate it.
Use a very ripe and spotty banana for maximum sweetness and creaminess.
Don't use ice instead of a frozen banana. Ice dilutes the flavour of smoothies and makes them thin. We want a thick, creamy, velvety delicious smoothie!
Using a high powered blender like a Blendtec or Vitamix makes a HUGE difference to how smoothies turn out. I highly recommend investing in one if you are able to.
Serve immediately. Smoothies always taste best when freshly made.
