The “It Doesn’t Taste Green!” Green Smoothie

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


  • 3/41 cup (180240 ml) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 ripe, medium-sized (100 g) banana, frozen*
  • 1/4 of a ripe avocado (~30 g)
  • 1 scoop or 1/4 cup (20 g) vanilla protein powder**
  • 1 cup (30 g) baby spinach
  • (optional) 2 Tbsp (10 g) unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Place all ingredients into any standard blender in the order listed and blend on high until smooth. Transfer to a glass, top with any additional toppings of choice, and enjoy immediately. This smoothie can also be made the night before and left in the fridge. It will not separate.


* You can swap out the banana for 1 cup of a different frozen fruit, like mango, pineapple, or blueberries. ** I really like Vega and PlantFusion.
