A quick, easy and surprisingly delicious vegan pick-me-up that makes the most of raw superfoods and protein-rich soy. I make one of these healthy treats for myself every morning for breakfast, and it powers me all the way until lunch. I love the mild sweetness of the banana, but if you want it sweeter you could add sugar. I’ve also added different things like fresh ginger, cinnamon, apple, or any number of other things. Raw vegans can substitute raw almond milk for the soy. Feel free to experiment with different flavors, and enjoy the pure energy that comes from eating delicious and good-for-you food!

  • 1 cup plain soy milk
  • ¾ cup packed fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 large banana, sliced

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Blend soy milk and spinach leaves together in a blender until smooth. Add banana and pulse until thoroughly blended.

Chef's Notes

You can substitute vanilla soy milk for the plain soy milk, if desired; Most of us know how good spinach is for you. But let's be honest, no one wants to eat nothing but spinach salad every day. Bananas are truly a miracle food because you won't even taste the spinach in this smoothie! It's a great way to reap all the nutrition benefits of fresh spinach without even knowing you're eating it.


  1. Wow—this was amazing and uses ingredients I almost always have on hand. What a great way to get extra veggies in. I now make this several times a week so keep frozen strawberries and blueberries on old bananas and bags of fresh spinach in the freezer to make the smoothies cold without adding ice. - Read more ...
  2. I subbed unsweetened almond milk for the soy milk it was really good I will definitely be making it again.
  3. This was a very simple smoothie to make and probably good for a newbie in the smoothie department. This was my very first smoothie and I liked it. I would probably add sugar next time (optional suggestion)
  4. Strong banana flavour and quite sweet. I prefer Breakfast Banana Green Smoothie. Others have suggested to use blueberries or canned pineapple for a different flavour. I used milk.
  5. I traded soy for regular milk. and added blueberries and protein powder.
  6. This is very tasty and a good base recipe. I had vanilla almond milk with a touch of honey so I used that. I also had a golden delicious apple to use up and used just a tsp of natural peanut butter. My banana was still a tiny bit green so the banana flavor isn't - Read more ...
  7. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk in place of the soy milk, but cut it down to 2/3 cup. I also froze the banana before using. I added a half scoop of vanilla protein powder as well as a couple tablespoons of almond butter. This is probably the tastiest smoothie I have ever had; I - Read more ...
  8. It comes out great every time. Thanks for sharing! The first time I used unsweetened almond milk, perfect. The second time I didn't have soy milk on hand so I used two percent. You just can't go wrong with this one!
  9. Perfect smoothie to get my morning going. I did as the reviewer suggested and subbed almond milk. I always have bananas in my freezer, so I used a frozen one which made the smoothie icy cold. I'm totally off sugar, so the banana made this smoothie plenty sweet for me.
