Ingredients in Sour Apple And Spinach Smoothie

GREEN APPLE

Granny Smith or Golden Delicious will work great in this smoothie and they are easily found in most shops. Golden Delicious is sweeter variety, so it will not require so much sweetener.

BABY SPINACH

Providing beautiful color and loads of nutrients, spinach is a great smoothie addition. You can substitute it with kale, or be adventurous and try arugula.

Spinach will surely help apple improve your immune and digestive system. Check our how healthy spinach is.

PLANT BASED MILK

I go for soy milk (sweetened or unsweetened) in this smoothie. It curdles very well with lemon juice providing thicker base.

You can also use almond, coconut, oat or cashew milk.

LEMON JUICE

If you mix soy milk with 2 table spoons of lemon juice, you will get Vegan Buttermilk. It fits this smoothie perfectly, making it really refreshing. Lemon gives us additional boost of vitamin C.

OATS

Oats make this smoothie more thick and creamy, and far more substantial. Best choice are fine oats or rolled oats, for smoother texture with less blending.

You can soak the oats in milk, even for a short time, to make them softer and easier to blend.

The substitute for oats, to help with creamy texture, is the same amount of vegan cream cheese or vegan soy cream. Both will make this green smoothie more substantial.

MAPLE SYRUP

Or your other favorite sweetener. Most of the ingredients are sour or tart, so a bit of maple syrup will round the flavors nicely.

If you don’t want to add sweeteners (or want to add something more substantial), go for half of very ripe banana or 2-3 medjool dates.

Questions and Answers

Can I Store It?

Most smoothies are best when drunk right after preparing, this is especially true for smoothies with apples or greens.

If you cannot drink immediately, store it in covered container in the fridge, and mix well before drinking. Because of pectin in apple the texture may become a little jelly-like.

What Else Can I Add?

Let’s look at how we can improve apple and spinach smoothie even further:

  • to improve thickness and creaminess – ripe banana, avocado, vegan cream cheese
  • for additional nutrition kick – teaspoon of chia seeds or sesame, 1tsp of chopped ginger
  • for sweeter flavor – ripe banana, 2-3 dates, frozen mango
  • to make it more substantial – few cashew nuts, ripe banana, 1 tbsp almond butter

Is Spinach Good For Smoothies?

Greens not only make your smoothie look so fresh and delicious, but they provide a lot of nutrients. Spinach is a great addition to smoothies, and you don’t actually feel its taste.

It combines very well with apples, bananas, cucumbers, mangoes.

Is Apple And Spinach Smoothie Good for Weight Loss?

Of course it is! With apples rich in pectin and oats rich in fiber this smoothie will keep you full longer. Drink it as your light breakfast or reach for it when you crave a light snack in between meals.

Swap sweetener for ripe banana for even healthier, more nutritious version.
