Super Green Smoothie with Green Apple and Banana

Super Green Smoothie with Green Apple and Banana

I have a green smoothie every day because they make me feel energetic and healthy. I love that they are super quick and easy to make and portable, which is perfect for busy days! I also like that I get a big boost of fruit, veggies, vitamins, and protein in one filling drink that actually tastes good. I decided to switch up my regular green smoothie this morning and made this super green smoothie with super greens, green apple, Greek yogurt, Almond coconut milk, and banana. The green apple gives this smoothie a nice tart and refreshing flavor while the banana naturally sweetens it up. I made it extra healthy by using a combination of super greens – baby spinach, baby red and green chard, and baby kale. This smoothie tasted really delicious and filled me up.

How to Make a Super Green Smoothie with Green Apple and Banana

Place the super greens, almond coconut milk, ice, Greek yogurt, green apple, and banana into a blender.  Blend very well until smooth and creamy. Drink immediately. Enjoy.

Side Note: The apple gives the smoothie a bit of a grainy texture, which didn’t bother me, but if you prefer smooth and creamy smoothies, try blending this smoothie extra well and strain through a fine sieve if desired.

    1. Sue,

      Yes, I use a Blendtec which is amazing. I have also used my immersion hand blender and it works fine.
