Green Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Our contributing blogger is Lori Olsen. She will be sharing some healthy and delicious recipes that will make you smile.


I know. You’re busy and you don’t have time to make or eat breakfast. I get it. But starting off your day with something nutritious doesn’t have to be time consuming or require a lot of preparation. I love this smoothie because not only is it quick and easy, it’s healthy and delicious! I’ve seen several variations of this breakfast smoothie. Other recipes include adding some almonds, protein powder, using kale instead of spinach, or adding in additional fruit. My version is pretty basic, but feel free to mix up! It’s a great way to ensure that you’re getting a healthy start to your morning. Lately I’ve been using a frozen banana, but I’ve also used room temperature bananas and just added a few ice cubes. Both ways are equally fantastic.

In the spirit of National Nutrition Month, here’s my super easy recipe:

Green Breakfast Smoothie

1 generous handful of spinach – rinsed
1 frozen banana
1 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 or 2 Tbs. of honey

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. If you want a less-thick smoothie, just add in some more almond milk until it reaches a consistency you like and blend some more. And that’s it! Cheers to a healthy you!

  1. I’m 28 and about a year and a half ago I had 5 implants peacld. And yes they cost me about 2500 a piece. I have excellent teeth but I was born with a condition called hypodontia. Is basically means that I’m born with an incomplete set of teeth. I miss a total of 9 of my adult teeth and they gave me 5 implants to fill gaps. They actually had to pul three milk molars which had remained since there were no adult teeth underneath. Just wanted to say that is isn’t always due to bad teeth.
