This Vanilla Green Smoothie is perfect for breakfast or a post-workout recovery drink. It’s easy to make with only a few ingredients.
Enjoying green smoothies is a great way to increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables. I prefer smoothies over juices because of the fiber. The blender starts to break it down for you so that it’s easily digestible.
I often start my morning with a smoothie. And having a smoothie or smoothie bowl is my favorite post-run meal.
This Vanilla Green Smoothie combines your favorite vanilla protein powder with bananas, kale, and water.
It’s hydrating as well as nutritious. I like mine topped with some raw cacao nibs for a healthy chocolaty treat. You can easily swap out the kale for other greens, if you prefer.
Vanilla Green Smoothie
- 2 cups cold filtered water

- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 3 frozen bananas
- raw cacao nibs for topping (optional)
- Add the water, greens, protein powder, and bananas to a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix. Blend on high until well combined.
- Pour into glasses, top with cacao nibs (if using) and enjoy!
