Helloooo Banana Apple Green Smoothie!! Green Smoothies are essential to our day, especially when trying to get in those extra greens.
Let’s be honest… sometimes it’s hard to get in that serving of greens everyday. Maybe you don’t like them or you just don’t make the effort to get them in. Well, I’m right there with you.
That’s why there’s this Banana Apple Green Smoothie!
Mmmmm…delicious! And you can’t taste the greens! Win win, right?
Currently, our toddler isn’t too keen on eating his vegetables. But don’t worry. We ARE working on it. But it’s a slooowww process. He LOVES his meat and fruits. Which is a great thing but we have to get in those vegetables too! So, in the mean time, we are making smoothies with lots of spinach. Getting in that serving of greens and those essential vitamins and minerals that darker greens contain. You’re getting magnesium, iron, folate, vitamins B, K, E, and A, calcium, potassium and much more. These help with blood, inflammation, bone, and skin health, just to name a few. Let’s be sure to consume your servings on greens everyday!
This Banana Apple Green Smoothie takes little time to make. Gather up some bananas, spinach, apple juice (Note: You will want to use high quality apple juice. 100% juice. Simply Apple has a great one that I use.), flax seed, chia seed, and a little squeeze of lemon juice.
Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
If you’ve never used flax seed or chia seeds in a smoothie before, you should know that it does affect the texture. It can cause it to have more of an “egg-like” texture. Not gross, but important to know. The longer you let the smoothie sit, the more egg-like in texture it will be. Fun fact – Flax Seed is a great substitute for eggs if you’re vegan! You just mix 1 Tbsp flax seed with 3 Tbsps water and allow to sit until thick.
Here you have this delicious Banana Apple Green Smoothie! A green smoothie packed with lots of vitamins and minerals from ground seeds, greens, bananas, and juice.
