A Green Apple Smoothie recipe is the ultimate nutritious addition to your morning. Loaded with fruits and vegetables, this smoothie starts your day off right!
A super smoothie if there ever was one – spinach and apples blended with banana lemon and honey. Totally delicious. Totally refreshing. And I totally think I am in smoothie love!
Because today, the day after one of the most indulgent days of the year, green smoothie love is the best kind of love!!
Loaded with so many vitamins, minerals and all those good things, this gluten free and vegan possible smoothie will make your tummy very happy. And I promise you can’t even taste the spinach!
I love the fact that this super smoothie has a kind of tart but kind of sweet but kind of distinct Green Apple Flavour. Just like candy. If that makes any sense at all. But, like, healthy candy.
Side Note: I have candy on the brain lately. This last post but definitely all about nature’s healthy candy too. You know it’s the holidays when your body is craving all the candy and sweet treats.
I mean, just take a look at that totally bright (and almost too green) green colour. Isn’t it just fabulous?
And it’s fabulous for you too!!

Spinach, apple, banana, pineapple and lemon all blended together in one totally tasty, super smoothie loaded with vitamins, minerals and fibre and that’s totally gluten free and pretty easy to make too!
This recipe makes enough for 1 large-ish smoothie, which for me is totally fine – it’s big enough to be able to feel satisfied but not quite big enough to share. Sorry J!
I always start my green smoothies off by blending my greens with some of the smoothie liquid – so here it was the spinach with the almond milk. This, for me, is key to a smooth green smoothie. It’s just a little step I take to make sure there aren’t any leaves of spinach floating around in my glass… because that is the worst!!
My green of choice for green smoothies will always be baby spinach. It’s so delicate and mild in flavour and not bitter at all which makes it super easy to hide the taste and the texture. You can experiment with other greens here but I will always choose spinach.
I seriously love the slightly sweet-slightly tart thing going on here. The banana and the honey for just a touch of sweet. And the Granny Smith apple (with the seeds and core removed and the skin left on) and the pineapple and the lemon juice for a touch of tart. And just like candy.
