Healthy Homemade Smoothie Recipe

Who doesn't love a fresh smoothie? After my morning workout, I always love making a healthy smoothie. A smoothie can be a wonderful way to restore and fortify our bodies after an exhausting workout.

Smoothies make an excellent post-exercise drink because they are endlessly flexible in terms of ingredients. You can add any fruit and/or vegetables you like, such as strawberry, pineapple, or kale. With just a handful of ingredients, a couple of minutes, and a blender, you’ve got yourself a delicious and healthy drink to enjoy at home or on the go.

Smoothies give you energy without making you feel overly full. The blend I'm going to show you below is packed with vitamin C and fiber, and you'll be amazed by how easy it is to make.

Quick Tip: Freeze the Fruit Ahead of Time!

You can store cut-up banana and blueberries in the freezer, and then whenever you're ready for a smoothie, just grab the frozen fruit and blitz it up in the blender. Remember, you can almost use any fruits that you like! Bonus tip: If you use fruits, you don't have to add any ice cubes!

Ingredients

  • 1 cut-up frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup organic baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup ready-made smoothie (I used mango and pineapple)
  • 1/4 cup water or coconut water
  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins or any kind of protein you prefer (optional)

Note: You can use frozen pineapple or frozen strawberries to replace the ready-made smoothie. This recipe makes about 500 ml.

Directions

  1. Combine the frozen banana, frozen blueberries, baby spinach, smoothie, water, and protein in a blender.
  2. Blend the mixture by using a smoothie mode. Stop once the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  3. Pour the smoothie into a tall glass. Don't forget the straw!
  4. Enjoy the smoothie as your post-workout or pre-workout meal.
  5. For best results, drink up at least 30 minutes before starting your workout and snack on something right after.
