Vegan Green Smoothie

Delicious vegan green smoothie packed with protein and vitamins!

Vegan Green Smoothie

Lots of parents worry about getting enough vegetables into their kids (or themselves for that matter).  We have had lots of smoothies in this family, but all have been heavily fruit based.  I wanted to make something which would help all of us get a little bit more veggies into our morning.

I have seen many recipes for "green smoothies," but I wanted to make something that was extremely simple (for when we are half awake).  This recipe only calls for four ingredients: spinach, fruit, soy milk, and maple syrup (or whatever you wish to sweeten it with).  Alternately, you could use a sweetened milk and skip the sweetener altogether.

I was not disappointed.  My toddler loved this smoothie!  She thought it was so funny that the smoothie was green.  She asked if we could do a purple one (blueberries and beets, maybe?), but she declared that "a red smoothie would not be tasty."  Lol

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup densely packed baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup unsweetened frozen fruit of choice (I used island mix from Aldi)
  • 2 cups of unsweetened soymilk
  • sweetener, if desired (We used about a TBSP of maple syrup)
Into the blender go all of the ingredients for a delicious vegan green smoothie!

Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients (except the sweetener of choice) in your blender, and place on the smoothie setting.  Run until smooth.
  2. Taste.  If desired add sweetener until you are satisfied with the result.


Yum
