Spinach Flax Protein Smoothie

Spinach Flax Protein Smoothie | The Blonde Buckeye

See, I eat vegetables, or in this case, drink them. Actually, the truth is, we eat pretty boring & healthy during the week. It’s a lot of broccoli & chicken breast. But sometimes I just don’t feeeeel like eating vegetables. Usually my guilty conscience wins over though. But that’s one of the main reasons I love a spinach smoothie; you can basically consume a giant spinach salad in the quick convenience of a drink. Plus, with a little fruit, it tastes sweet & refreshing. I’ve made a ton of variations, but this is my absolute favorite. I love it for breakfast, it’s the perfect fast lunch if you’re in a rush, a great pre/post workout snack… it can be anything. In addition to loading it with spinach, I also like to incorporate a bunch of add-ins. These can be anything you like or need, but my favorites are flax meal, protein powder & chia seeds. This is the perfect opportunity to get those additional nutrients. This is the spinach smoothie for people who think they don’t like spinach smoothies.

  1. Looks so healthy and delicious. I love that you add in pineapples and mangoes into it.

  2. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
    to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
