Only 3 ingredients! Recipe for a vibrant green, sweet, and creamy-thick smoothie. This fuss-free green smoothie is my go-to smoothie. Some frozen pineapple or mango chunks (from the freezer aisle) are a perfect add-in, by the way.
Recipe: Ursula | lilvienna.com
2 large oranges (a scant cup juice including pulp, 200 ml)*
2 bananas, cut into pieces and frozen (200 g)**
2 big handful fresh baby spinach, rinsed (ca. 30 g)
1/2 cup (120 ml) water
Juice the oranges. I remove the seeds from the pulp and use the juice and pulp.
In a high-speed blender, add orange juice (plus pulp), bananas, spinach, and water. Blend all ingredients until smooth. Adding ½ cup water results in a thick and creamy smoothie. Add more water if you prefer.
Divide between two glasses and enjoy!
* Oranges: If oranges are not in season or if you don’t have them on hand, you can substitute them with a scant cup (200 ml) of orange juice. Of course, fresh oranges taste better and are healthier but I sometimes use store-bought orange juice, especially when I’m in a hurry.
** Bananas: To freeze bananas, peel them, cut them in 0.5 to 1-inch pieces and freeze them for at least 4 hours, even better over-night. I always use the freezer bag multiple times for this purpose.
