Smoothie Tuesday – Electric Green, Green Drink

Posted on December 22nd, 2009

Electric Green Spinach Smoothie

This is one of my all-time favorite smoothie recipes. It was one that I made countless times when I first started eating raw foods. This simple green smoothie is brightly colored and is sweet and tasty to boot. All you need is spinach, bananas and water. It’s that simple! Alternatively you can use almond or hemp seed milk to add to the flavor and provide additional nutrients.

The Recipe

  • 2 hand fulls of spinach
  • 2 bananas
  • 6 ice cubes (or omit if your bananas are frozen)
  • 1 cup of water or your favorite “milk”
  • 2 TBSP of hemp seed protein (totally optional)

Directions: Throw it all in a blender and WHIRRRRR

If you want to spice it up even more use a chocolate greens powder such as Amazing Grass, or just use cacao powder. One of my favorite things about this drink is how much it freaks people out when they say it. Their reaction is always, “eww, your going to drink that”. But I promise, what looks like it flowed right out of a nuclear waste dump is one of the most delicious smoothies you will ever taste.

    I’m doing my best to eat less meat and more “green stuff,” but I have to say, the color was the first thing that made me want to try this :)
