Teacher Cooks: TGBTS Green Smoothie Recipe

green smoothie

Today I am sharing my Green Smoothie – sans banana – recipe because a whole lot of people have asked me to share what goes into my almost every day green smoothie glass.

Ingredients to make 2 huge smoothies:

2 cups of water plus more for blending

2-3 big handfuls of washed spinach

half a bag of frozen mango chunks

half a bag of frozen pineapple chunks

1-2 tsp of chia seeds


half a bag of frozen raspberries – turns it from green to purplish brown

1 TBS of nut butter – makes it taste like a PB&J sandwich

vegan protein powder

green super foods powder

honey or agave to sweeten

Blend until smooth, adding a bit more water if needed.
