Packed with essential nutrients, this smoothie is a perfect way to kickstart your morning or replenish your body after a workout. In this blog post, I'll guide you through the steps of making this vibrant and nutrient-rich smoothie that will tantalize your taste buds and nourish your body.


  • 1 ripe banana (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1 small apple, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
  • Ice cubes (optional)



Step 1: Prepare your ingredients

Gather all the ingredients and ensure they are properly washed and chopped. For convenience, you can freeze the banana the night before to add a chilled and creamy texture to your smoothie.

Step 2: Blend the greens

Start by adding the fresh spinach leaves to your blender. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, and it adds a vibrant green color to the smoothie. Blend until the leaves are broken down and well incorporated.

Step 3: Add the fruits and vegetables

Next, add the chopped cucumber and pineapple to the blender. Cucumber provides hydration and a refreshing taste, while pineapple adds natural sweetness and digestive enzymes.

Step 4: Boost with protein and healthy fats

Now it's time to add the protein and healthy fats to make this smoothie more satiating and nourishing. Add the ripe banana, Greek yogurt, almond butter, and chia seeds to the blender. The banana adds natural sweetness, while Greek yogurt provides a creamy texture and a protein punch. Almond butter adds healthy fats and a nutty flavor, and chia seeds offer additional protein and fiber.

Step 5: Blend and adjust consistency

Pour in the coconut milk (or your preferred choice of milk) to facilitate blending and achieve the desired consistency. If you prefer a thicker smoothie, you can add some ice cubes. Blend everything together until smooth and creamy.

Step 6: Serve and enjoy

Pour the Green Power Protein Smoothie into a glass or jar. Take a moment to appreciate its vibrant green hue and invigorating aroma. You can optionally garnish with a sprinkle of chia seeds or a pineapple wedge. Sip slowly and savor the refreshing and nutrient-packed goodness. Feel the energy coursing through your body as you nourish yourself with each sip.


With the Green Power Protein Smoothie, you have a delicious and nutritious way to supercharge your day. Packed with vitamins, minerals, protein, and healthy fats, this smoothie is an excellent choice for breakfast, a post-workout recovery drink, or simply as a refreshing snack. Get creative with your ingredients by adding other leafy greens, fruits, or even a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Embrace the green power and fuel your body with this vibrant and revitalizing smoothie that will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world!
