Green Breakfast Smoothie
This easy and totally delicious dairy free green breakfast smoothie is the perfect energizing start to your day!
If you, like me, are in that post-Christmas oh-no-I-ate-too-many-sweets haze, then this delicious green breakfast smoothie is for you! It takes only a few minutes to make, is packed full of vitamins and nutrients, and is super delicious to boot. I’ve been making it for years, and it’s perpetually a family favorite. Even my super picky kids love it! My four year old, who absolutely abhors anything green, drained her cup in all of five seconds and asked for more. That is pretty amazing for a green drink, right?
If you haven’t made a green smoothie before, this is the perfect easy recipe to start with. Believe it or not, it doesn’t taste like spinach at all. Even my incredibly picky supertaster eight year old told me that it just tasted like bananas and almond milk and kept begging me to tell her what was making the smoothie green, since she couldn’t taste anything “weird.” I did finally tell her that it had spinach in it, to which she replied, “That’s the best spinach I’ve ever had!” I can’t help but agree. 🙂

I love pretty much all green smoothies, but my kids…not so much! this is one I'm sure they would LOVE
It looks deli! Gotta give it a try!
That looks so GOOD!!! Definitely have to try after my workout!!
Made this recipe this morning. My 4-year-old, while not picky, doesn't always like to try new things. She drank half my blender!
This looks SOOO good, Alicia!! Cannot wait to try it. 😀
How many servings does this recipe make?
I would say 2 adult servings, or 4 child servings. I split it with my two girls and it was just the right amount.
If it is 2 adult servings is it possible to save the 2nd in the refrigerator for the following day?
I couldn't say. I've never tried to save it overnight.
I've tried leaving the second portion overnight, it does not keep well. The texture is way off and grainy. This smoothie is amazing and tastes SO good, but my advice? Drink it fresh, don't let it sit overnight.
I love a good, healthy and filling breakfast! Who wouldn't want this for breakfast or anytime of the day:) YUM!!

I'm new at making smoothies but I would like to try this.
This was awesome !! You cannot even taste the spinach and my son wanted more! Thank you for sharing😀💖
Can I use frozen bananas?
Yes, that should work fine! You can probably just leave out the ice cubes, since the frozen bananas will make it nice and cold.
Can I use water instead of milk?
I love this shake my kids enjoyed it as well
Tastes GREAT with oat milk and I used frozen bananas, added a few small ice cubes just to add more slush – very good
is there nutrition information for this?
I just discovered this recipe a couple weeks ago, and this is now daily breakfast for myself and my husband and daughter.
We LOVE it. It keeps me satisfied for hours and it tastes amazing. I add 1/4 teaspoon each of coconut and vanilla extract, but otherwise, leave it as is. Thanks for this amazing smoothie!
