(I slice the bananas and freeze them on parchment paper on a baking tray overnight.)
1/4 cup spinach (roughly, I just grab a small handful )
3/4 cup frozen berries
1/2 banana (fresh or frozen)
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp honey
12-16 oz almond milk
It’s about 350-400 calories, tastes good, and it keeps you full for a while.
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup peanut butter
2-3 pitted dates
1/4 cup oats (quick or old fashioned)
2 bananas, peeled, cut into chunks and frozen
1/2 cup ice
The veggies could be a handful of spinach or kale, 1/4 avocado, or riced cauliflower.
I use pea protein powder and switch up my non-dairy milk often. If you don't use protein powder you can use plain Greek yogurt (I LOVE Chobani)
1 c unsweetened almond milk
1/2 c low fat Greek plain yoghurt
1 c frozen berries (usually seeded berries)
1 scoop GNC soy protein
1 tbsp Stevia (optional)
3/4 c. Mixed Berries
(Frozen or fresh)
1 c. Greens (spinach,
2 tsp. Matcha Tea
2 tbsp. Chia seeds
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tbsp. Flax seeds
1 c. Almond milk
First, take the Chia seeds and stir into 4 tbsp of water. Let stand for 10-15 mins until they become soft and absorb the water.
Add to all ingredients and blend.
Substitute fruits and greens with YOUR favourites to make your own smoothie.

Benefits of spinach
* It is loaded with vitamins like A, B2, C and K and contains antioxidants and minerals too.
* It has a high nutritional value and has magnesium, manganese, folate, iron, calcium and potassium.
* Low on calories, this green also fights osteoporosis, heart diseases, arthritis and cancer. However it is advisable to eat spinach with vitamin C rich foods as it contains oxalic acid which can reduce the nutritional intake of your body.
Benefits of banana
* Its calorific value is 105 – 250.
* Contains 18% vitamin C, 13% potassium, 12% dietery fibres and 9% manganese. Also, has Vitamin B6 which increases the production of anti-bodies.
* Helps in reducing blood pressure.
