Protein-Powered Green Smoothie

Last Updated 10th January 2022
Green protein smoothie

While we're super fans of green juices and veggie smoothies (hello, antioxidants!), there's one thing we've discovered through years of trial and error: a handful of spinach, some lime juice and a spritz of apple juice just ain't gonna fill you up until lunchtime!

But that doesn't mean you can't have a vibrant green shake for breakfast - you've just gotta be nutrition savvy and add in a few more ingredients for that extra satisfying breakfast boost!

Alongside superfood spinach, a creamy banana and some zesty lime juice, we've added in some uber-filling porridge oats and vegan protein powder to stop that stomach rumbling till lunchtime or beyond.

It's the perfect way to pack in a mighty serving of fruit and veg first thing, without sacrificing your much-needed protein kick!

Prep & cooking time: 5 minutes | Serves: 1 | Vegan


• 30g Nutribuddy Protein powder
• 1 small banana
• 100g spinach
• 100ml almond or soya milk (add more or less depending on how think you'd like the smoothie to be)
• ½ lime
• 50g porridge oats


1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Have you tried out the Nutribuddy Protein Shake yet? It's 100% vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free and made from natural wholefood ingredients only. It makes a fantastic addition to fruity shakes and smoothie.
