I always use BiPro unflavored whey protein powder in this recipe, but you can use any unflavored protein powder of your choice. Kids will even love this sweet and refreshing smoothie recipe, so give this green energy smoothie a try and go green!

How to Make A Green Protein Smoothie

The ingredients I use to make this green protein smoothie are simple:

Frozen Mango. I buy my organic frozen mango from Costco in bulk so I always have it on hand.

Fresh or frozen banana

Fresh or frozen kale. If you don’t have kale, you can substitute spinach in this recipe.

Nut milk. I usually use almond milk but you can use coconut, hemp, or soy. Just make sure you’re choosing one that has a low amount of sugar.

Just add all the ingredients to your smoothie maker or blender.

Blend everything at a low speed until larger pieces are broken up. Finish on high speed until smooth.

**I always recommend frozen kale over fresh in smoothies because it's already chopped and gives the drink a thicker consistency.

Do you drink the smoothies as a meal (breakfast) or are they as a treat?

    This is one of my favorite smoothies and I often have it for breakfast! https://gethealthyu.com/recipe/green-energy-smoothie/ A nutritious smoothie can totally be a healthy breakfast, lunch or snack. I don't view smoothies as treats! :) Ice cream is a treat! SMILE!

When you recommend protein powder, any specific suggestions? Source? # of grams? Calorie allowance?
