Stripped Green Smoothie {single serving}

This post is long overdue as I’ve had so many of you ask me what the single serving recipe is for the signature green smoothie here at Nutrition Stripped, the Stripped Green Smoothie! Today, I’m sharing a quick post on just that, the Stripped Green Smoothie {single serving}, which is perfect for an individual serving, for when you need to make it on-the-go, or if you want to try it out before committing to making the larger batch (which I still hope you do!).

The original recipe for the Stripped Green Smoothie contains 2-4 servings, depending on how much you drink at one sitting. I always make the Stripped Green Smoothie in this large batch to save myself time throughout the week and to make my mornings a little less busy and more relaxing. Either way, both of these recipes are extremely quick and simple to make! To learn more about the Stripped Green Smoothie visit that blog post or visit Green Smoothies 101 for more information on green smoothies and why I love them so.

    Thanks for the recipe. When you say you ‘make the Stripped Green Smoothie in this large batch to save myself time throughout the week’ – Do you freeze it once blended? Have you any tips for freezing smoothies. Do you recommend freezing the whole ingredients or freezing the blended smoothie. I love my Vitamix but I’m struggling to find the time to use it in the morning!

    Hi McKel! Love your blog :) I want to try the stripped green smoothie but was wondering if you have any suggestions for upping the protein content and lowering the card content? Even with adding more protein powder I’m still finding that the ratio is carb-heavier.

    Thanks so much!

    Great idea to add the cayenne. When I drink I beverage, I expect it to be sweet or at least neutral, and have difficulty with drinks that aren’t (like veg juices, which I know to be better for me). Adding the cayenne, somehow, trips a neuron in my brain which moves it from ‘should be sweet drink’ to ‘this could be a savoury soup’. I can tell, just from drinking this, that without the cayenne that I wouldn’t have liked it (found it too bitter or not sweet enough). But because the cayenne is there, I am somehow ok with it. I also added ginger for zing, and love all the sensations happening in my mouth right now!

    I tried the smoothie this morning and I was surprised how much I liked it but the texture was too chunky. You mentioned the Vitamix blender but I just don’t have $400-500 to spend. Do you have any suggestions on getting it smoother with a cheap blender?
