Are you ready to take your protein smoothie game to the next level? This healthy and packed with protein Apple Kiwi Green Energy Smoothie recipe is absolutely delicious and a great way to start your day!
Start this one by getting out a blender. Yes, you need a blender unless you’ve got a special set of skills that allows you to blend whole fruits and vegetables inside your shaker bottle.
Add right into your blender 1 cup of milk substitute, 1 chopped up apple, 1/2 kiwi, 1 container of your choice flavor Greek yogurt, 1 scoop of optional protein powder, 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal, 1 cup of ice, and 1 cup of washed spinach.
I like vanilla or plain Greek yogurt but use whatever you want here. You can also mix and match flavors with your protein powder to get endless green energy smoothie variations.
Example of these variations? Vanilla Greek yogurt with a strawberry protein powder, plain Greek yogurt with a banana protein powder, and so on. Let me know some of your favorite pairings in the comments below!
Health tip? Leaving the kiwi skin on your kiwi will give you 2-3x more fiber! The best part? You can’t taste it!
Blend everything together until smooth and distribute it. You can make one or multiple servings with this apple kiwi green energy smoothie recipe and easily store them to drink whenever you’re ready.
