This spinach and apple smoothie makes an excellent breakfast or workout drink. It has lots of healthy fibres and vitamins, and we added in plant-based ingredients that are rich in proteins. 100% vegan power!

Why this combo? Apples are naturally sweet and help us make a smoothie without using added sugars.

They contain fructose that gives your body energy and fibres that allow such energy to be released slowly and steadily. They also have certain flavonoids that promote muscle endurance and recovery [1].

Spinach is a renowned source of iron, folate, and vitamin C, which are precious nutrients for energy, vitality, and immunity.

As we explain in this spinach smoothie for low iron, adding spinach to a smoothie helps you get more iron, especially if you're on a plant-based diet.

These leafy greens are also rich in antioxidants that aid your cells fight back the ageing process.

We topped all of this goodness with extra proteins, vitamins, and healthy fats by using almond butter and soy yogurt.

You can use peanut butter if you prefer and replace soy yoghurt with low-fat Greek yoghurt if you aren't vegan or lactose intolerant.

For being a 5-minute recipe, the benefits are pretty slick.

You get 25% of your RDI for fibres, 20% of your RDI for proteins, and only 9% of your RDI for sugars, and 2 out of 5 of your daily fruit and veggies.
