Green Protein Smoothie Recipe


Looking for a high protein breakfast or post-gym snack? Our green protein smoothie recipe is packed with 27g of protein, full of fibre, and has plenty of vitamins and minerals to set you up for the day. It’s also quick and easy to make, purse friendly, and can be made vegan by swapping to a plant-based protein powder. 

We’ve packed this smoothie with banana, avocado, spinach, flaxseed and vanilla protein powder, creating a delicious drink that tastes great and contains 2 portions of your daily fruit and veg! Perfect for even the fussiest tastebuds who want to eat more greens. 

While avocado might not sound like your usual smoothie ingredient, it helps create a creamy texture and inject the smoothie with some healthy fats. The spinach creates the green colour and adds iron, without impacting the taste! 

Still need to be convinced? For only £1.18 per serving, whip up our green protein smoothie in minutes with no fuss. Simply chuck all your ingredients into a blender and serve while chilled.
