In the bottom of a blender, add water, banana, pineapple, spinach, protein powder or Greek yogurt, and flax seeds. Blend until smooth. Taste and add honey if desired.
Pineapple: To substitute fresh pineapple (peeled, cored, and chopped), add ½ cup ice or more to the blender.
Spinach: To take your spinach over the top, substitute a 10-ounce block of frozen spinach, thawed, for the 2 cups fresh. It’s intense but amazing!
Protein powder: Use either your favorite vanilla protein powder or ½ cup Greek yogurt.
Flax or chia seeds: Add 2 tablespoons of flax seeds or chia seeds for an extra boost of protein, fiber, and healthy fats.
Honey: Taste the smoothie before adding any sweeteners, then start with a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. If you use a vanilla-flavored protein powder, you probably won’t need anything.
Yield: This recipe makes about 2 cups of smoothie, enough for 1 serving.
Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Some separation may occur, so shake or stir to combine before enjoying.
