Spinach Flax Protein Smoothie Recipe  (Must Try!)
Spinach Flax Protein Smoothie
This Spinach Flax Protein Smoothie recipe will make you smile. 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.Print
