Sunflower Spinach


Ingredient List:

  • 1 1/2 oz. of baby spinach
  • 1 banana – peeled
  • 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of ice


When ready, simply process all the ingredients together in your favorite blender. You can shake it up or stir it up, then serve and enjoy. Cube or chop vegetables to make them blitz easier before blending. I like to add any leafy vegetables in last, and then add a touch more water if I want the consistency smoother or silkier. Great garnishes include: lemon, celery, chia seeds, or a slice of tomato. Add ice on a hot day to make the drink cooler.

Helpful Tips: Add a Snack Too

For breakfast and lunch, you can make your favorite smoothie and just add a snack to make it a combo to aid in weight loss. Try grilling fish, or eating a lean pork, chicken or another healthy addition.
