Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 2- inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch cayenne (optional)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 ripe banana, preferably frozen

Instructions

  • In an upright blender, combine the orange juice, lemon juice, ginger, protein powder, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, cayenne, baby spinach, and the frozen banana. Bring the blender’s speed up to high and run until liquid is completely smooth. Enjoy immediately.

Notes

  • Because I call for 2 packed cups, super mild baby spinach is my preferred green for this drink.
  • You could substitute the banana with a handful of frozen pineapple or mango, or even some frozen avocado if you want to bring the sugar down a bit.
