about this recipe

gluten-free dairy-free refined sugar free

This quick and easy banana spinach smoothie recipe uses frozen bananas, spinach, rolled oats and multiple sources of protein for a filling, nourishing meal to carry you through the day! Makes the perfect healthy on-the-go breakfast or snack. Can also be used to make green smoothie bowls!



Combine all the ingredients in a blender.



Blend on high until very smooth and creamy.



Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking!

If you like a thicker smoothie or are using fresh instead of frozen banana, add ice for better texture. For a thinner consistency, add more milk. For a sweeter smoothie, add 2 teaspoons of maple syrup or 1-2 pitted dates before blending..

simple ways to customize this recipe:

Make the smoothie thicker using only 1 1/2 cups milk. Also, make sure to use frozen bananas to help you get that thick consistency. Once blended, pour into a bowl and add your choice of toppings - nuts, seeds, fresh fruit, granola, honey, cacao nibs or a drizzle of almond butter.

to make a green smoothie bowl:

more easy ingredient swaps:

For a nut-free version, use any other milk in place of the almond milk. And either substitute sunflower seeds/ sun butter in place of the walnuts (or omit altogether). In place of the baby spinach, you can also use another tender green like baby kale.
