If you’re looking to amp up the protein in this bad boy, feel free to add a scoop of your favorite kind of protein powder. Here are some of our faves, but any kind will work. Just note that you may need to add a bit more coconut milk depending on how thick you like your smoothie bowls. And if you’re making this healthy smoothie recipe to drink on the go, feel free to add a bit more coconut milk (starting by adding 1/4 cup at a time until you have your desired thickness) so you can drink this out of a glass or bottle.
Why We Put Spinach in Smoothies
We get asked all the time if can you taste spinach in smoothies, and we’re here to tell you: only if you want to! Spinach is good in smoothies for many reasons, but one of our faves is that you can mask the taste of it with flavorful fruits or nut butters, or you can add other greens for a more earthy smoothie taste. Either way, adding raw spinach in smoothies is an ideal way to get your daily greens in — we pack a whole cup of raw spinach into this green smoothie bowl. And many of the other green smoothie recipes on Fit Foodie Finds pack a cup or more of spinach as well.
