HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT SMOOTHIE

I drink a smoothie nearly every day. It’s become a staple in my diet. A smoothie is like having dessert any time of day. I am always looking for ways to pack nutrient dense foods into my body. And A LOT of them. I can pack a lot of good calories into a delicious smoothie! It’s easy to take on the go, it’s simple to make, and it’s freaking DELICIOUS.

I do not know many healthy active people who DON’T drink some sort of smoothie or protein supplement powder. When you’re active your body requires more fuel to power through workouts and your day! In other words, you’ve gotta eat a lot of food. When you’re eating nutrient dense food it can become a challenge to get ENOUGH. I do love to eat but I do not want to eat all day every day. Girl got stuff to do!

Try this smoothie recipe if you need some goodness in your life.

I use Shakeology as a supplement in my smoothies. You can use whichever protein powder or meal replacement that you prefer in yours. Experiment with this recipe and make it your own! Before you ask which flavor of Shakeology I use… I use ALL of them! And I use this same recipe every time regardless of vanilla powder or chocolate or whatever. I recommend a high powered blender as well. I’ve been through a few over the years and live by my Vitamix. It’s well worth the price. I’ve used mine daily for YEARS! A good blender makes all the difference in smoothie land.

If you have questions about blenders, Shakeology, or any other supplements that I use please message me or comment below.

This recipe is delicious! I make this same recipe for my husband and my kids every day. If you love chocolate and peanut butter this will be your jam! The serving below will make one large smoothie or two smaller portions. I typically split it between two people but can easily put it down on my own too. Let me know if you try it!

  • 1 whole Frozen Banana Peel, cut into four, and freeze beforehand.
  • 1 cup almond milk Try chocolate almond milk too! Yum!
  • 4 cups baby spinach You WILL NOT taste it. Trust me on this one!

  • 1 scoop Shakeology Any flavor! My faves are vegan vanilla and chocolate.
Servings: large smoothie
Instructions
  1. To make this go faster and to be easier on your blender go in this order...
  2. Pour in almond milk and add the baby spinach. You might need more almond milk toward the end if your smoothie comes out too thick. BLEND the spinach and almond milk until a green liquid remains.
  3. Add in whichever flavor of Shakeology (or whichever supplement you're using) along with the peanut butter, ice, and frozen banana. Blend until smooth. Add more almond milk or ice depending on the consistency you like. You could also use water.
