Apple Spinach Vegan Protein Powder Smoothie

Apple Spinach Vegan Protein Powder Smoothie

There's nothing like a smoothie in the morning or for an afternoon snack. There's something about a green smoothie to really get you going. The best part about this Apple Spinach Protein Smoothie from Treehugger is that you can add more spinach than what the recipe calls for as it doesn't alter the flavor. This recipe has a ton of fiber and loads of nutrients and vitamins such as potassium and Vitamins A and K. Remember to get an organic apple so you can leave the peel on and get the most nutrients from this fruit. Plus, this smoothie is packed with protein--about 24g in fact!

Prep time: 5 minutes

Total time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 large smoothie or 2 small smoothies
