Green smoothie benefits: A healthy 5-minute drink

Our green smoothie is perfect to drink any time of the day – first thing in the morning, with breakfast or lunch, as an afternoon snack or part of your workout routine, and whenever you’re craving something fresh and nourishing. This banana green smoothie recipe ticks all the right boxes. It’s vegan, soy-free, high in dietary fibre, gluten-free, nut-free and contains no added sugar. The use of pineapple, banana and coconut gives the smoothie a naturally sweet flavour. 

The best green smoothie ingredients

Our recipe for the best green smoothie is made from just 6 ingredients: banana, pineapple, cucumber, avocado, spinach and coconut water. The use of the cucumber, avocado and spinach gives the smoothie its distinct green colour, while the banana and pineapple add goodness and flavour. Blended, these ingredients create a thick and creamy beverage. If you prefer a runnier consistency, you may prefer to adjust the amount of coconut water used. When preparing to make your green smoothies recipe, it’s important to chop the ingredients before adding to the blender. This will help create a smoother consistency. If you like to meal prep, you may even consider pre-measuring and chopping all the ingredients (besides the coconut water) and storing them in airtight bags or containers in the freezer. When you’re ready to drink, dump the frozen ingredients straight into the blender with a cup of coconut water and blitz.
