  • 2 bananas*, frozen preferred
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1 knob of ginger
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter*
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1.5 cup plant milk, unsweetened
  • optional: 1/4 tsp turmeric, ground* & pinch of black pepper


  1. If using frozen bananas, add them to the blender and blend on high until smooth. Add the plant milk if the blender is having trouble.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until creamy. Scrape down the sides if necessary.
  3. Adjust flavors to taste: add more banana for more sweetness, ginger for more zestiness, and turmeric for extra warmth.


*You may substitute the bananas with zucchini for a lower-calorie, less-sweet, banana-free smoothie option.

*For nut allergies, you can substitute the peanut butter with sunflower seed butter or tahini.

*You may use one knob of harder-to-find fresh turmeric instead of ground to substitute.
