Spinach Smoothie

  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup almond milk (see notes)
  • 1 medium frozen spotty banana, sliced or cut into 4 pieces (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 12 teaspoons maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Garnish (optional):


  1. Place smoothie ingredients into a high powered blender and blitz on high power until the mixture is smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds.
  2. Pour into a glass (and if using garnish, drizzle with tahini, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and a little lemon zest) and serve immediately. Enjoy!


  • Almond Milk: If the almond milk your using has already been sweetened, feel free to reduce to skip the maple syrup.  
  • Banana: Using frozen bananas will result in a thicker and colder smoothie. But if you don’t have any frozen, just add a couple of ice cubes.
  • Thick Smoothie: For a thicker smoothie, add a few of ice cubes to your high powered blender before blitzing everything up!
