Green Zinger Smoothie

I made this smoothie as a light breakfast before a morning hot yoga class and it was perfect - I felt fueled enough to power through the class, but not weighed down or like my belly was overly full.

Green Zinger Smoothie vegan / gluten free / paleo

Ingredients:

  • 1 small frozen banana
  • Handful of greens (I used kale but spinach or any other mild green will work!)
  • About 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 spoonful almond butter
  • Scoop of vanilla protein powder of choice (I used this one but see this post for all of my protein powder recommendations)
  • Generous sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Small knob of peeled fresh ginger (gives it the ZING!)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • A few ice cubes (optional)

Directions:

  1. All all ingredients to your Vitamix or high speed blender and blend on high until smooth. You may need to add a little extra liquid or ice, depending on how thick you'd like your smoothie.
  2. Enjoy!
