Healthy Spinach Banana Smoothie

A delicious, healthy and easy to make smoothie, packed with nutrients and is the perfect smoothie to get you going in the morning.

It uses ingredients we always have on hand and you can barely taste the spinach.

One of the benefits of consuming spinach and banana is the intake of essential nutrients like

Vitamin A which is good for your immune system, retinas, and also acts as an antioxidant protecting cells from free radical damage.

Vitamin K is essential for wound healing and bone metabolism.

And Potassium helps control blood pressure, regulates fluid balance, facilitates muscle function and nerve communication.

Spinach is also rich in Iron while being low in calories.

I use Frozen Banana, cut into slices and frozen, the texture is thicker and creamier with frozen bananas and the smoothie is as a result icy cold. Alternatively, can use unfrozen bananas but I always add some ice cubes in this situation. I do not use an entire banana as I like the sweetness the bananas add but like to keeps the total carb intake low.

The kind of milk you use is totally up to you. I have made this smoothie with other types of milk and they came out delicious. You can use Soy, Dairy, Cashew or vanilla coconut milk.

Honey is totally optional, 1 teaspoon is not much, honey in small amounts is good for you, it is rich in antioxidants.

Ingredients

2 cups Spinach leaves

½ Banana (Large) Frozen

1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 Teaspoon of Honey (Optional)

Ice Cubes (Optional)

Method

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You can add more milk to reach your desired consistency.

Enjoy!!
