For about four or five years, this has been one of my favorite smoothies. If you’re someone who would prefer if spinach tasted more like a milkshake than a vegetable, then this vanilla green smoothie is for you. This smoothie is as healthy as a salad, but it tastes like a sweet dessert. You can taste the spinach a little bit, but it’s barely noticeable.
This smoothie contains 1 cup of baby spinach. Even though that only amounts to 7 calories, it’s still a good source of iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and folate. When you combine that with the banana, soy milk, and coconut milk, you get even more vitamins and minerals plus about 8 or 9 grams of protein. That’s a lot of nutrients for a 16 oz drink that only contains about 200 calories.
