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 as 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.
