Banana Spinach Lemon Smoothie (high protein)

Here it is! Here’s the recipe if you want a high protein, low in fat, full of greens smoothie. No fluff, just high-density nutrition…right here.


3/4 cup frozen spinach (I buy fresh bagged, then freeze it and add this)

Small handful of ice

2 packets of Stevia sweetener or sweetener of choice

1/2 frozen banana

1 squeezed fresh lemon and/or 4 drops Lemon essential oil (I make sure mine is certified safe for internal consumption)

3/4 cup almond milk (unsweetened)

1/4 cup water

1/2 – 1 TBSP Truvia (or other preferred sweetener of choice)

1 scoop Vanilla protein powder (any will do, I use Vegan protein, sweetened with natural sweeteners only)

1 tsp Maca Root (optional I like for endocrine support)

1 TBSP Hemp seeds (optional)


Put all ingredients (except for protein powder, and Hemp seeds) into high-powered blender or NutriBullet, all wet ingredients first then dry.

Blend until mixed and we’ll combined then add protein powder and blend for just a few seconds. (Too much will make the smoothie very “fluffy”)

Pour into glass, top with hemp seeds and enjoy!!

That’s it! Enjoy anytime of day, I especially enjoy after a good workout!

Full of protein.

Satisfies hunger.

Great way to get your greens in.


Full of Calcium.

Lover of life, my husband Chad, and our three kids. I love cooking and baking low-sugar, but still delicious, foods for my Chad who’s a diabetic. We leave room for occasional indulgent foods too! Constantly on the hunt for natural, alternative ways to incorporate to stay healthy. Saved by grace. Lastly adventure and spontaneity are everything...oh, and coffee too.
