My boys requested a smoothie or breakfast, but we were due for a trip to the produce store. I decided to try making our Favorite Green Smoothie and just skip the grapes.
I tweaked the recipe a teeny bit and I’m happy with this result. All three of the boys enjoyed this and I barely managed to get a sip for myself.
Simple Banana Spinach Smoothie
- 3 cups orange juice
- 3 bananas frozen
- 2 large handfuls baby spinach
- Layer the ingredients into the blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!

I have never combined spinach with banana. Must try it soon.
Wow, I've never tried spinach in a smoothie, but it sounds great and very healthy, too!
The smoothie looks delicious, and it is healthy too!
First time here… love the recipes and your presentation!

Nice way of sneaking in green leafy veggies 🙂
I saw a recipe similar to this the other day, and it got me intrigued. Your smoothie has great color and texture, and I know it it won't be long till I'll be making this at home!

i love how simple this is. perfection!
I'm a bit unsure about banana with spinach but I should give it a go – once our bananas come down to a more realistic price. They are currently at $11 a kilo here. It's ridiculous and I'm starting to dream of bananas in my sleep!
Hi Mary – yep, $11 a kilo. The supermarkets 'blamed' the big cyclone we had earlier this year (Yasi) for the rise – yet the prices skyrocketed THE DAY AFTER the cyclone struck. The silly thing is, bananas aren't just grown in North Queensland where I live and funnily enough, the growers are recording a profit this year. Thanks for stopping by my post.
That reminds me, I can pig out on bananas when we go the the States for Christmas this year! 69c a pound is so cheap compared to what we are paying for here.

I am liking all of your spinach smoothies. My 7 year old is a huge spinach fan – I wonder what she would think of it in her smoothie? She would probably love it:-)
Just made it and it was great! Thanks for the simple, yummy recipe.
