Naturally High Protein Green Smoothie


Prep Time

10 minutes

Prep Notes

Pumpkin seeds are a good source of protein (10g/1/2 cup) as are chia seeds (2g/tbsp).  Spinach delivers 5 g/cup.  You can easily reduce the ingredients in half to make a single serving, but sometimes it is nice to have leftovers for the next day.

Yields

2-3 servings

Ingredients

2 cups milk of choice. I like to use almond or coconut.

1 banana

1 peach or pear or mango

¼ cup of pumpkin seeds

¼ cup of almonds or additional ¼ cup of pumpkin seeds

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 cup handful spinach, tightly packed or 2 cups loosely packed (or any other mild greens)

handful of kale

½ tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp cinnamon

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Decant mixture into glass with straw and enjoy.
