This green smoothie recipe is everything you’ve ever wanted: thick and creamy consistency packed with healthy greens, tropical fruit, flax and coconut milk all blended up, poured in a bowl and topped with your favorite smoothie bowl toppings. We’re whipping up one of these healthy smoothies right now! Who’s with us?!

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.

Tips on How to Make a Smoothie Bowl

  • Cut up and freeze fruit in Stasher Bagsmeal prep containers or Ziplocs so you have it on hand when you want to make a healthy smoothie recipe
  • Choose a protein powder with a clean label (HERE are some of our faves)
  • Rolled oats are a great way to add nutrients and a little thickness to your smoothie bowl
  • A little peanut butter goes a long way!
  • Invest in a high quality blender (we LOVE our Vitamix)
  • Top with your favorite nuts, seeds, berries or other fruit slices whether you’re drinking your smoothie out of a cup or eating it as a smoothie bowl
