Spinach Flax Smoothie Recipe
To me, a balanced smoothie needs to not only taste amazing, but have a blend of essential nutrients including fiber, healthy fats, protein, and vitamins and minerals. While store-bought smoothies may be convenient, they’re often full of added sugars, preservatives, and additives, so I always prefer making my own, so I know exactly what I’m putting into my body! This Spinach Flax Smoothie is a deliciously-creamy treat that checks off all the boxes and is made with whole, nutritious ingredients!
With superfoods like spinach, flaxseed, and avocado, this smoothie is loaded with healthy fats and fiber for the ultimate meal, post-workout shake, or even a snack. Eating whole foods always helps boost my energy levels and helps me combat brain fog in the afternoon. Rather than reaching for sugary snacks or coffee, this smoothie satisfies my sweet tooth while uplifting my mood!
What You Need to Make this Smoothie
If you regularly follow these recipes or make smoothies often, you probably already have most of the ingredients needed for this drink! All you need is 310 Organic Vanilla, frozen banana, avocado, spinach, flaxseed, unsweetened coconut milk, and ice. The mild nuttiness from flaxseeds and sweetness from banana seriously makes this smoothie taste like a banana muffin. You’ll have to try it to believe it!
310 Organic Vanilla
For this shake, I add a scoop of 310 Organic Vanilla for a subtly-sweet and creamy flavor. This is a great meal replacement shake to use to enhance and bring out the natural sweetness of the other ingredients. Not to mention, it's packed with plant-based proteins to further promote satiety and keep you full. It’s a must-have for any pantry and below are some key points of why I’m such a big fan!
- Free from sugar, artificial additives, soy, gluten, dairy, and GMOs
- Vegan, keto, and paleo-friendly
- Full of plant-based proteins derived from pumpkin, brown rice, and pea
- 5g of dietary fiber per serving
