A refreshing green smoothie is packed with fiber and about 9g of protein for 215 calories only. Unlike the other green smoothies, this one contains lime which helps to add a nice zingy to it.
To prepare this smoothie, you will need:
1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt
· A large handful of spinach
· 1 small banana
· A half of a medium sized cucumber
· 2 tbsp lime juice
· A half cup of coconut water
· ¼ cup of ice (optional)
Clean the spinach and cucumber under running water the peel the banana. Blend all the ingredients together until they are well mixed. Now pour the concoction in a glass and sip slowly as you work.
For a creamier finish, consider using frozen banana. If you do not have vanilla yogurt, plain yogurt with honey and a few drops of vanilla extract to sweeten it up will also give you the same results. The best part about green smoothies is that they are flexible yet loaded with health benefits.
