Tropical Green Smoothie

This smoothie is refreshing and packed full of nutrients from spinach and fruits.  Spinach is a powerhouse food, high in nutrients such as Vitamin K, Vitamin A, calcium, folate, and iron. If you're looking for ways to consume more vegetables, incorporating spinach into your smoothies is a good place to start!


1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 cup spinach

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used EAS brand)

1 TB ground flaxseed

1/3 frozen banana

3/4 cup frozen pineapple

1/3 cup frozen mango

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
