We're big DC Comic fans at my house (Batman and Wonder Woman rule the domain), so it's fitting to call this smoothie after this powerful superhero! This smoothie's here to fill my stomach when I just don't feel like eating anything that's in the fridge, or when I'm rushing with the kiddo to get errands done. It's chock full of green superfoods, so you'll be zipping through your day just like the Green Lantern (no, not really).
The Green Lantern Lunchtime Smoothie
- 1 cup of vanilla-flavored almond milk
- 1 handful of kale
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop of protein powder
Blend, and zoom!
Mornings are not my forte, so having go-to breakfast recipes like this one, just makes the whole dreadful process easier. My husband loves it, my kid loves it, I love it, it's nutritious, and easy to make––what else could you want?! The key to it is having:
- A base combo of 2 fruit that pair well (haha, get the pun?)
- A couple handful of superfood greens
- 1-2 cups of the liquid base
- A touch of sweeteners
- A scoop of protein powder
My fall-back morning smoothie is strawberry banana. I buy the frozen strawberries from Costco at a super economical price, so that big bag sits in my bottom freezer ready to save my day. Below is my fall-back concoction, but use the formula above to make it your own!
My Fall-Back Morning Smoothie
- 1 cup vanilla-flavored almond milk
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 2 handfuls of kale or spinach
- 1 (or 2) scoops of chocolate protein powder
- 2-3 dates (optional)
Blend it until perfection, and serve. Feel free to swap out/in some ingredients to make it your own. And if you have a concoction that's your favorite, share it in the comments! I'd love to try it!
Named by my creative husband, this smoothie tastes so great, it's our absolute favorite.Read More
