Banana, Chia and Spinach Smoothie

Sticking to my new years resolutions with this Banana, Chia and Spinach Smoothie!

Banana, Chia and Spinach Smoothie - an easy and filling morning meal!

More times than not I just have a little greek yogurt in the morning for breakfast and then I’m starved by 10:30am. I decided that that has got to change in 2014. While I’m not really one for resolutions, mostly because I aim crazy high and never seem to make them last more than 7 days, but this smoothie resolution I made has a chance of sticking!

Inspired by one of Aida’s smoothies she made for me last week, I started whipping up bright green smoothies every morning and the result was this Banana, Chia and Spinach Smoothie. I’m convinced that smoothies don’t get better than this. It’s the perfect consistency and it’s packed full of fresh spinach, almond milk, frozen mango, chia seeds and a banana.

Also – I’m not a fan of ice in your smoothie. The frozen mango does a great job of cooling this drink down and if you add ice it just takes longer to blend and that cramps my style.

Pinkie promise these will keep you full for a solid 4 hours! And you’ll love them so much you’ll probably want to make a round for lunch too! Maybe even get crazy and whip some up for dessert.

  1. I have just started using almond milk, and this looks like the perfect solution for the quick morning meal that I need fairly often. Love that there is spinach in this!

  2. I have been making smoothies for a few days now and thought I would just slap some fruit and spinach together this morning for my breakfast smoothie. I made this exact smoothie, and you are right, it is very tasty and it kept me full for about 4 hours. :-)

  3. I love smoothies with frozen banana or frozen mango — they give it that smoothie consistency that you get when you order a smoothie from a smoothie shop. :)
