Favorite Healthy Green Smoothie Recipe

If your weekend was anything like my weekend, Monday morning requires a green smoothie.

This past weekend was our annual trip up north hunting for morel mushrooms. For the past three years, Pat and I meet up with close friends where we hang out at our cabin and spend a day looking for morels. There’s always lots of laughs, delicious food and adult beverages. With that said, come Monday I will need to recharge and get back on track.

A favorite way to do that is starting my day with my favorite healthy green smoothie. It’s full of healthy ingredients, is lusciously smooth and tastes absolutely amazing.

Ingredients for my Favorite Healthy Green Smoothie Recipe

To Make My Favorite Healthy Green Smoothie You Will Need:

  • banana – fresh or frozen
  • mango – frozen
  • pineapple – frozen
  • avocado
  • ginger
  • milk of choice
  • fresh spinach

add frozen fruit to a blender

Add 1/2 to 1 full banana (fresh or frozen) plus 3/4 cup frozen pineapple and 1/2 cup frozen mango to your blender.

ginger and avocado to blender

Next add in 1/2 a small avocado and a knob of ginger. I personally don’t like an overly ginger tasting smoothie so I add about 1/2 an inch knob. Feel free to add as much or as little as you would like.

pour in milk of choice

Pour in 3/4 cup milk of your choice. I’m using unsweetened vanilla macadamia nut milk.

Lastly add in 2 generous handfuls of fresh spinach and secure the lid.

Blend until smooth.
