All you need is a high powered blender of some sort. In my case I like using a Nutri Bullet because of its size (great for portion control), its motor, cost (about $99 at Bed Bath and Beyond), and cleanup.
For this recipe I used:
~ Two handfuls of baby spinach
~ One banana
~ One packet of RAW brand protein powder
~ About a 1/2 cup of frozen berries and mangos
~ Almond milk
~ Bee pollen
This is just a basic outline to the possibilities of a green smoothy. Adding flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds would also be a great added source of nutrition.
Put all of the ingredients into a blender, blitz away and enjoy.

* Bee pollen is the food of the young bee and it is approximately 40% protein. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. It contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be sued directly by the body. Such highly assimilable protein can contribute significantly to one’s protein needs.
* Spirulina is a natural “algae” (cyanbacteria) powder that is incredible high in protein and nutrients.
