Green Goddess Smoothie — A healthy breakfast recipe made with fresh spinach, green tea, avocado, apple, and lemon juice. How could you NOT feel like a goddess after drinking this?!
Hello my fine looking friends!
And to my my fine mamas out there, I hope you enjoyed you’re Mother’s day yesterday!
I spent mine over my Nana’s abode with my brothers and MJ, while we tried not to get knocked out by pop flies.
And just in case you were wondering, New England decided to skip spring this year.
After seeing Kate’s Green Goddess Hummus, I’ve had greenery on the brain. And something so healthy as a green smoothie sounded like the perfect way to cool down and refuel without heating up the kitchen.
…Okay maybe ice cream would be the PERFECT hot weather dinner. I guess until they make a protein and spinach sundae…on second thought let’s just stick to a green goddess smoothie.
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp matcha powder*
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 scoop pea protein, or your favorite protein powder
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 green apple, deseeded and chopped
- 1 cup fresh baby spinach
- 1/2 cup fresh parsley
- 8-10 ice cubes
- Combine all ingredients in blender.
- Blend on high for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth.
- Serve in tall glass.
* 1 cup of chilled green tea can be substituted for matcha powder and water.
This smoothie isn’t very sweet, so feel free to add a little more fruit to the equation if you’re not feeling so squeaky green. I left out the typical tarragon and chives of green goddess goodness, but I think Kermit would approve of the degree of green-ness this smoothie packs.
And since it’s packed with protein, it makes a refreshing post sweat session drank. You can find other great protein-ified smoothies with DailyBurn’s #ShowUsYourSmoothie campaign! Just search the hashtag on either Twitter or Instagram to see some inspiration!
Now get to feeling like the heavenly angel you is gurl!
Make it a great day!
