This simple green smoothie with banana, green apples, and spinach is refreshingly tart and a great way to start the day. 


  • 1 cup sliced frozen bananas
  • 1 small (5-oz) granny smith apple, cored and cut into pieces
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk (see note)


  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more milk to thin the smoothie, if needed.


I love ginger, so if you want it a little less zingy you might want to cut the amount of ginger in half. For the milk, you can use pretty much whatever you like – almond milk, soy milk, whole milk or even half & half (if you want it a little richer) will work great. The nutrition estimate includes 2% milk.
