Banana/Spinach Green Smoothie with Protein Powder

This is the kids’ favorite breakfast smoothie !  I occasionally make them for an after school snack too…so delish and nutrish :)

My friend Stephanie shared this one with me…she is a yoga instructor at Divine Center of Yoga … :)



Green Smoothie
  • 12 ounces of coconut water
  • 1 peeled frozen banana
  • 1 handful of pineapple (you can use your favorite fruit of choice)
  • Bunch of spinach, I pack it in there
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I use Sun Warrior brown rice protein powder)
  • 8 ice cubes
  1. Whir, whir, whir in the blender and be prepared to be amazed at how good it tastes!

About Jennifer

I am the mother of 2 beautiful children, Presley-7 and Cash-5 and married to an amazing husband and father, Todd. I have always thought of myself as a healthy person...I've always loved sports, working out and eating healthy. However, looking back, I've actually had a lot of unhealthy habits. I've tried every diet out there : Low fat (How did I think eating a box of fat free snackwells cookies was healthy?), Low carb (can you say fried pork skins GROSS)... as well as a long stint with disordered eating which started in college as a way to avoid those "freshman 15".
Well it wasn't until my 30s that I realized those kind of diets are just a quick fix, not a lifestyle. I think all foods can fit into a healthy diet as long as you practice moderation. I have found that I feel and look my best when I am eating mostly plant-based foods. Not to say I won't indulge in a filet every now and again... but I find that I crave meat less and less ! I have recently been fascinated with trying new vegetarian recipes...I NEVER thought I could give up chicken...used it eat it everyday, but I actually don't miss it at all.
I am trying to pass these healthy eating habits onto my children so they can avoid some of the diseases related to unhealthy diets.

Thanks for reading and hope you have a healthy day !!!!
