Five minutes is all it takes to make this delicious Apple and Spinach Breakfast Smoothie. You might be thinking that there is absolutely no way it can only take five minutes. Let me assure you, that it certainly does! So, if you’re too tired to make a full-on breakfast, try this smoothie recipe! It will for sure give you the nutrients and energy you need to get going.
Not only is this smoothie quick, but it is easy to make. And, I’m here to show you just how easy it is. Typically, I always have these ingredients on hand in either my fridge, freezer, or cupboard. This Apple and Spinach smoothie makes enough for two servings or one big smoothie. So, if you plan on making it for more people, then scale the recipe measurements to whatever size you want.
The ingredients required to make this are: 2 cups almond or oat milk, 1 cup raw spinach, 1 large apple (any kind), 1 tablespoon chia seeds, and 4 ice cubes. The kind of apple I typically like to use is either Pink Lady or Red Delicious. Since I prefer to stay more on the sweet side with the flavor of this smoothie, I avoid tart apples like Granny Smith. However, if you love Granny Smith, then use it! Toss everything into a blender and give it a quick blend until smooth.
What I love the most about this recipe is that even dogs love it! I feed this to my little dog whenever I make it. He gets his own serving in his own bowl. He laps it up quickly and always comes back to be begging for more. It makes me very content knowing that he can enjoy a healthy and tasty homemade treat!
If you incorporate one of these smoothies into your everyday routine, or even your dog’s. I am sure you will notice some positive body changes. Maybe your skin will get more of a glow. Perhaps your eyes will look brighter. And, appearance aside, you will most likely feel better from the inside out! And feel rejuvenated after drinking one. There are so many benefits to the ingredients that this smoothie contains.
Spinach, a leafy green vegetable, is packed with insoluble fiber which makes it incredibly healthy. Apples aid in bone protection and may help to lower cholesterol.
