Banana Nut Green Smoothie

Refreshing, satiating, delicious, and easy….. we love us some green smoothies here at LSP! If you are new to green beverages, the Banana Nut Green Smoothie is a great starter drink. Bonus- it can easily be made in advance for a next-day lunch by whipping one up and freezing overnight. Just be sure to allow for a few hours of thaw time prior to your lunch break. Yum!

green smoothie pre mix

1. Add all ingredients to high-speed blender in order listed above.
2. If using Vitamix, select Variable 1. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to variable 10, then to High.
3. Blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute until fully blended. (If using Vitamix, use tamper to aid in mixing ingredients.)

*Note: If you do not have a high-speed blender, you can use a regular blender for this recipe. I recommend pre-blending the greens first, as well as using a partially-thawed banana.
