Add all of the ingredients to a blender. Then, blend on high speed for 2+ minutes until the smoothie is completely blended and smooth.
Pour the green smoothie into a large 16 oz glass or two 8 oz glasses and enjoy!
- There is only one tool you need to make a great smoothie recipe and that is a good blender. While I would love to have a Vitamix in my life someday, I currently use my Kitchenaid K400 Blender and it does the trick!
- Oat milk can be substituted 1:1 for any plant-based milk
- Spinach can be substituted 1:1 for any green, though it will affect the flavor of the smoothie since spinach is very mild.
- Frozen blueberries can be substituted 1:1 for any berry, but it will change the flavor of the breakfast smoothie.
- It is best not to substitute frozen bananas because of their unique texture and sweetness. However, if you really want a green smoothie with no banana, it can be subbed 1:1 for frozen cauliflower. Cauliflower gives smoothies a similar creamy texture like bananas do, however, it will offer no sweetness. If I use cauliflower in a smoothie in place of banana, I almost always add in 1 pitted date or 2 Tbsp maple syrup.
- If you would like a substitute for hemp seeds, flax seeds or chia seeds work as a good substitute (though I would cut the amount in half)
