Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 1% milk I used ultra filtered to double the protein (14g instead of 8)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 3/4 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Instructions

  • In a high speed blender, add the milk and spinach. Blend until smooth (this prevents pieces of spinach sticking around).

Notes

Nutritional info is based on the brand of protein powder. Every brand will change the information slightly.

Sweetening Your Smoothie

If you taste the smoothie and it's not as sweet as you prefer (it's a fruit smoothie, but not overpowering with sweetness) adjust it how you would like.
You can add:
  • More pineapple (if you want it thicker, this is another option too)
  • Monkfruit sweetener
  • Honey
  • Maple syrup
