Course: Breakfast + Brunch
Cuisine: Vegan
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2 8 oz smoothies

Ingredients 

  • 1 ½ cups frozen bananas
  • 1 cup spinach loosely packed
  • 1 ¼- 1 ½ cups oat milk use less for thicker smoothie
  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup hemp seeds

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

  • 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)
