Green smoothies are a great source of protein, vitamins, and antioxidants. Aside for its natural cleansing benefits, this delicious drink will help you lose weight and strengthen the immune system. Here are our top picks for this amazingly healthy green protein drink.
1. Pineapple Green Protein Smoothie
Fresh, tropical pineapple green protein smoothie packed with plant-based protein and delicious Flavor. Made banana-free with steamed cauliflower, pineapple, mango, orange juice, cashews, and hemp powder, this amazing smoothie recipe is a fabulous way to start the day.
2. Key Line Pie Protein Smoothie
Key Lime Pie Protein Smoothie is a nice balance of complex carbs, protein, and healthy fats. A whole avocado provides nearly 10 grams of fiber, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Your protein powder will provide you with sustainable energy. Lastly, the spinach will give another dose of vitamins and minerals.
3. Green Monster Smoothie
Green Monsters are one of my favorite drinks for glowing skin and increased energy. If you are a newbie, feel free to start off with baby spinach since its taste is undetectable, but I encourage you to experiment with kale, romaine lettuce, or other leafy greens as well. Just be sure to use a sturdy high-speed blender that can handle the task of blending thick greens.
4. Banana Spinach Protein Smoothie
This Easy Banana Spinach Protein Smoothie recipe includes protein powder PLUS protein-rich Greek yogurt and almond butter for a triple punch of protein goodness.
5. Green Coconut Smoothie
This Green Coconut Smoothie is really fruity and refreshing for summer! Coconut water is a great source of electrolytes and potassium and will help keep you hydrated. Take a look at our smoothie section for more recipe ideas!
6. Low Carb Mint Chip Protein Shake
Combine the avocado, whey protein, dairy-free milk, heavy cream ice, salt, and peppermint in a blender, and puree until very smooth. Stir in stevia a bit at a time until you find your desired sweetness level.
7. Green Avocado Smoothie with Chia Seeds
While the avocado is the star in this smoothie, you shouldn’t overlook the other ingredients, especially the chia seeds. While we all have been told since very young age that spinach contains a high amount of iron there is a little fun fact about chia seeds. They contain more than twice as much iron as spinach does and those little black seeds come with a huge variety of health benefits.
8. Banana Mango Avocado
This smoothie is super simple, requiring just 5 ingredients and a blender or food processor. Of course you know by now that I’m
borderline undeniably obsessed with my NutriBullet, so if Santa didn’t leave one for you under the tree, go ahead and treat yourself! It’s totally worth it.
9. Green Protein Smoothie (VEGAN + PALEO)
Along with the spirulina, this smoothie contains hemp protein powder – just a tablespoon for a protein and fiber boost and some chia seeds, which not only adds protein, fiber and omega 3 but is also a great way to help thicken smoothies.
10. Shamrock Protein Shake
The green color is all-natural with both spinach and avocado. Avocado also made this shake extra-creamy, a must for any milkshake. Having given this to Vegas (my giant kid), I can promise you that you can’t taste either “healthy” ingredient. She actually looked surprised when I told her about the avocado! It’s such a great trick to get in more nutrients without even noticing it, plus no artificial dyes are needed to turn this shake green!
