Two glasses of green smoothie with chia seeds

Healthy Green Smoothie

This green smoothie recipe uses either kale or spinach (or a combination of both if you prefer), almond milk, banana, mango, and your choice of nut butter. The recipe also states that you can add a scoop of protein powder, which would give this snack a protein boost, as well as some helpful fats, antioxidants, and fiber.

SERVINGS:  smoothie (about 12 ounces without ice)


  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk plus additional as needed
  • 2 ounces (about 2 big handfuls) fresh spinach or roughly chopped kale leaves
  • 1/2 medium banana cut into chunks and frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks or pineapple chunks
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter of choice I like almond butter or peanut butter
  • Ice optional
  • Optional Mix-Ins: 1/2 scoop protein powder 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal


Place all of the ingredients in the blender in the order listed: almond milk, spinach, banana, mango, nut butter, and any extra mix-ins.
Blend until smooth. If you’d like it a bit thicker, add in a few ice cubes and blend again. Pour and enjoy!
