Cheap. Green. Superb storability. You don’t need a ton of smoothie recipes, you just need one that works. This one is easy to make and only requires three ingredients: a handful of frozen spinach, one red apple and one ripe banana. Add a cup or two of water depending on how thick you want it and blend. It’s ready to drink in the next 5 minutes.
Use frozen spinach because it’s easier, a lot easier to store. Look for packs with portioned spinach so you can just grab as much as you need. It often comes in small cubes and being frozen, it also makes the smoothie instantly chilled right after blending – you don’t need to add any extra ice-cubes.
Red Apples work best because they are sweet. You won’t taste the spinach in the smoothie at all if you use sweet apples and ripe bananas.
90g frozen spinach
1 medium Red Delicious apple
1 medium ripe banana
2 cups of water
Wash and slice the apple, slice the banana and add to the jug with spinach and water.
Blend everything together until smooth – it shouldn’t take longer than 3 minutes. Drink right away.
