Green Smoothie To The Health Rescue
When most people think of green smoothies, they envision health-boosting drinks packed with a plethora of green veggies – but this shake offers a unique “green twist”. Along with the very popular smoothie ingredient (spinach), the shake also includes green apple and kiwi – two vitamin-packed green fruits. In addition, the recipe also features frozen banana, coconut water and 310 Vanilla Shake.
310 Vanilla meal replacement shake powder is not your typical protein powder. First, it’s plant-based, featuring a blend of pea, brown rice and hemp plant proteins. In addition, it’s free from unhealthy and artificial, or chemical-based ingredients. Unlike many other shake brands, it’s also free from sugar, dairy, gluten, soy and artificial sweeteners. Plus, it’s low-calorie, low-carb, and has an addictive vanilla bean taste.
The addition of 310 Vanilla Shake in this smoothie recipe, (paired with the banana), gives this drink a rich and creamy flavor. It also provides 15g of plant-based protein, 5g of dietary fiber, 20 vitamins and minerals, a green superfood blend, and gut-healthy probiotics. Due to all the protein and fiber in this smoothie recipe, you’ll likely feel energized and rejuvenated after drinking it – and far less likely to reach for unhealthy, sugary foods!

Triple Threat Green Shake: Powerhouse Greens
Along with 310 Vanilla Shake, the “triple greens” also take center stage in this recipe. Let’s take a look at what each of them adds to the mix…
Green apple – This deliciously tart apple offers a tangy-sweet flavor, while providing 2.5g of fiber in half the fruit, along with 7% of the recommended daily value of vitamin C.
Spinach – Next, the 1 cup of spinach in the shake recipe will give you over 6g of iron, just less than 4% of the 18g that’s recommended for women to eat each day. Spinach is also a great source of calcium, magnesium, potassium and folate.
Kiwi – Finally, kiwi is also an amazing source of dietary fiber, and is known for being great for digestive health. It’s also a high vitamin C food, and can help promote beautiful skin and restful sleep.
In addition to the “triple threat” powerhouse greens, this smoothie recipe also contains potassium-filled bananas and hydrating coconut water – making it an amazing post-workout drink!
