The Antioxidant-Rich Ingredient Your Smoothies Are Missing Hero Image

This smoothie is not only full of green tea’s antioxidants but also anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats from flax and hemp seeds and nutrients from fresh spinach.

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1 packed cup baby spinach
  • ¾ cup green tea (cooled to room temperature or from the fridge)
  • ¼ cup nut milk (almond is very tasty)
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter (again almond goes well)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon wheatgrass powder (optional)

Preparation

1. Add all ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth.

Note: You can prepare the green tea in two ways: Steep it and allow to cool to room temperature, or make it ahead of time, transfer to a glass jar or container, and refrigerate.
