Super Citrus Smoothie!

Hey friends!

I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day!  I have a post coming later today with more details about our group Valentine’s Day celebration, but I’ll give ya a little spoiler…it was great, delicious, and so much fun to be with so many people we love 🙂

To go along with the LOVE theme, I wanted to mention the Love Your Body accountability Challenge that Maria and I are hosting this month.

Love Your Body Challenge 2015

I can’t believe it, but we are already in week 3!! The challenge this week? Drink a GREEN smoothie!  There are several smoothie recipes in my recipe archives (or you could just search “smoothie” on the search bar!), but I thought I would share a fun and yummy smoothie recipe with you today for a little inspiration.

Super Citrus Smoothie

This Super Citrus Green Smoothie is light and refreshing.  The citrus and vanilla pair together to give this smoothie a bright, sweet, and creamy flavor.  And I SWEAR you can’t taste the spinach 🙂

Yields:  1 smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water (you could sub 1 cup of almond milk or your favorite milk for the 1/2 cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1 scoop Vega One Protein Powder
  • 1 handful of spinach

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender.
  2. Blend on high until thoroughly combined and the smoothie is of the desired consistency.  (You may need to scrape down the sides a bit to get all the spinach mixed in.)
  3. Serve in your favorite glass with a fun straw (or in a bowl with a spoon!) and enjoy!

INSIDER TIP!  To make ANY smoothie a green smoothie, simply add in a large handful of spinach and blend blend blend! You cannot taste the spinach at all and you get TONS of vitamins and nutrients in while sipping a delicious drink that tastes like a treat!

Vega provided me with samples of their protein powder, but I received no compensation for this post.  My love for Vega and green smoothies is genuine!

  1. I never would have thought of citrus and vanilla going together but it sounds good! My favorite smoothie is half a frozen banana, 1/2 cup strawberries, my favorite strawberry shakeology, 1/2 cup kale and 1 cup unsweetened almond milk! I’m a little strawberry obsessed! 🙂
