• 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, lightly wilted
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • A small piece of ginger, peeled (optional for a zesty kick)
  • A few mint leaves (for extra freshness)
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  1. Briefly steam the spinach for a minute or two. This step helps to make the nutrients in the greens more accessible for absorption.
  2. In a high-powered blender, combine the wilted spinach, avocado, banana, ginger (if using), mint leaves, and almond milk. Add ice if you prefer a chilled smoothie.
  3. Blend everything together until smooth. If the smoothie seems too thick, you can add a little more almond milk to adjust the consistency.
  4. Pour the smoothie into a glass and enjoy it right away for the best taste and maximum nutrient intake.
