This is the absolute BEST quick and easy, healthy green smoothie!! Breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, post-workout boost, or whenever you like, this 5 Minute Spinach Apple Green Smoothie is the B.U.S.I.N.E.S.S! It’s loaded with greens and packed with nutrients, not to mention – it tastes heavenly!
Made with baby spinach, cucumber (so fresh!), green apple, banana, orange juice and Greek yoghurt in just 5 MINUTES. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, FRESH (thank you cucumber!), light, and FULL of green goodness!! You can’t really taste the spinach but its health benefits are all there.

For a dairy free smoothie, just add coconut milk or water instead of the Greek yoghurt. And if you want your smoothie a little sweeter…add some honey or maple syrup to the mix. Also, if you want to amp up the freshness factor, add a few mint leaves….Mmmmm the FRESHNESS. YUM.
I’m completely hooked on this 5 Minute Spinach Apple Green Smoothie, I absolutely adore the flavours and I love that I can get a whole bunch of healthy spinach and cucumber into my diet in such an easy and yummy way. Not to mention the goodness of the green apple, banana and orange!
It’s a win win win situation all the way!
Happy Friday by the way! Let’s let out a collective sigh of relief, and maybe do a happy dance?! Just me? I’m really glad it’s the weekend, and I’ve got a fun afternoon of going out for coffee (in my case, tea) and then a long walk along the beach walkway. Ahhhh weekend…I’ve missed you!!
I’m thinking a few restaurant /coffee shop adventures are in order for this weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve done a coffee shop post…I’ll share a new one with you soon! Every now and then I love having someone cook for ME for a change! I’m going to try not to go near the kitchen this weekend, unless it’s for a warm cuppa, of course! And that way, I’ll discover some new places around and about so that I can share all the details with YOU. There’s a very cute little food truck down the road from me that I have been dying to try out! And a few quaint little places I’ve been meaning to go back to.
That’s my weekend in a nutshell…what does everyone have planned? I hope whatever you get up to, you have great company and delicious food along the way, maybe a green smoothie or two?!!
