Power Smoothie

I am here to share an amazing recipe with you that I LOVE to have for breakfast! I call it a monster smoothie, power smoothie, or a Hulk smoothie when being served to my kids :) Ingredients are as follows:

1 Cup Water
1 mango, peeled and pitted
1 banana, peeled
 1 Cup Spinach leaves
1 Scoop vanilla whey protein
2 Tbsp Brewer's Yeast
Scoop of ice

I have a Blendtec Blender (pretty much exactly like Vitamixer) which I love so much, so it really annihilates everything! But a regular blender works just as well. I just plop in all the ingredients and serve it up. YUM! Even my baby loves it! A very healthy, filling and lightweight meal replacement or treat for the kiddos.

This recipe is so versatile, I don't always use a mango. Sometimes strawberries, carrots, grapes, kiwis...whatever! But it is so delicious and starts off my day with a good serving of spinach, which I love. And I love it even more because you really can't taste it, PROMISE! Carrots are a great addition if you have a Blendtec or Vitmixer, but I don't recommend using carrots if you have a regular blender. Just a tip!


  1. We love these too. So good! Keagan loves the "hulk" smoothies the best. I am sure because of the name:>

  2. I have a vitamix and love it! I'm addicted to my green smoothies but never have mixed my protein powder with one. I'll have to try that.
