The Best Green Smoothie EVER!

I’ve been drinking green smoothies just about every day for the past couple of years. I’ve experimented with different berries, different plant-based milks, plenty of protein powders, and all types of flavors and sweeteners. But this one is the best. EVER.

Made with nutrient-dense spinach, pumpkin puree, creamy pecan butter, and delicious coconut…this green smoothie is a delicious and satisfying nutritional powerhouse!

This smoothie comes together in just a few minutes, making it great for a filling breakfast on-the-go. It’s also vegan and gluten-free!

The Best Green Smoothie EVER!

This Recipe is :





  • 2 cups of baby spinach, loosely packed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk (carton, not can)
  • 1/4 cup coconut kefir or plain/unsweetened coconut yogurt
  • 2 tsp pecan butter (almond butter would also work)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (fresh or canned)
  • 2 T unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 T plain or vanilla protein powder (optional)
  •  1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 drops of liquid stevia, to taste
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 3-4 ice cubes, if needed to cool/thicken


  1. Simply throw all the ingredients into a high-powered blender (the Vitamix works great!) and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
