Spinach Banana Smoothie Bowl
A nice cold and refreshing energy bowl that’s perfect for a hot spring/summer day! It’s already pretty dang warm here in Orlando and I’m craving all the summer things – like a vacation, some sun, and this spinach banana smoothie recipe! Another green smoothie recipe FTW!
If you can’t tell, we love allll the green smoothies around here and this energizing bowl is no exception. Loaded with healthy fats and all around feel good ingredients, this baby serves as fabulous pre or post workout fuel!
Check out some of these spinach smoothie recipe ingredients…
- spinach (duh)
- almond butter
- almond milk
I don’t think this green smoothie can get any better!
Lightly and naturally sweetened courtesy of the banana and mango, this energy bowl is smoothie bowl is 17 grams of all natural sugar per serving!
Can you put raw spinach in a green smoothie?
By all means, YES! Raw or frozen spinach will work for this recipe – frozen spinach will create an “icier” smoothie bowl though FYI. Makes it slightly colder IMO, which is highly welcome!
We also like to freeze fresh spinach for smoothies before it goes bad! Just last week I bought a fresh bag of it and noticed it starting to turn within a few days. So, I popped that baby in the freezer and now it won’t go to waste! 🙂
Reducing food waste one bag of spinach at a time around here!
Can you taste spinach in smoothie?
The glory of adding these nutritious green leaves to recipes, specifically this one, is that you can’t taste it ONE BIT. Like literally not at all. The green color is the only giveaway that you may or may not be trying to sneak a little extra veggies into your hubs and/or your kiddos.
But I try and make this a fun experience with my two boys. The green color seems to interest them because they think they’re drinking something cool – like a superman drink 🙂
Which, in all reality this can be considered a superman drink (or bowl) thanks to it’s nutrient density!
