Clean Eating Smoothie Ingredients

Each ingredient in this recipe fits the clean eating lifestyle perfectly, and below, we will explore the benefits of each one in this recipe.

Bananas

Bananas make the perfect base smoothie ingredient because of their flavor and texture.

Whether you want to use them raw or frozen, they help create the perfect consistency that makes this smoothie so silky and sippable.

Plus, adding bananas to a smoothie is the best way to use up those ‘too soft’ bananas on the counter.

Spinach or Cannabis Leaves

Spinach is one of my favorite leafy greens to add to a smoothie.

It is packed with many vitamins and minerals, and you can’t taste it.

If spinach isn’t your thing, one awesome thing you can do is swap the spinach for raw cannabis leaves.

If you are lucky enough to grow your own cannabis, you may enjoy saving the plant’s fan leaves, and this is one of the best ways to use them.

Terpenes in Chocolate and Cannabis

Linalool, myrcene, and ocimene are three terpenes found in chocolate, and they may also exist in raw cannabis plants.

And the terpene menthol, found in mint, is thought to be one of the most beneficial terpenes to exist.

With its unique properties, menthol, used orally or topically, is a great natural alternative for various purposes. 

According to one study published in Phytochemistry, menthol can relieve headaches, reduce fever, reduce acne, stimulate hair growth, and even asthma.

Your Choice of Milk

As we know, milk choices are a personal preference for everyone.

Luckily, this smoothie is flexible, and you can use any milk you desire, including cannabis-infused milk.

Whether a traditional dairy-based or a dairy-free alternative, switching milk to any plant milk will work just fine.

Plant milk substitutions include:

  • Almond milk 
  • Hemp seed milk
  • Pea milk
  • Oat milk
  • Soy milk
  • Cashew milk 
  • Sunflower seed milk

Greek Yogurt

Plain Greek yogurt is one of my favorite kitchen staples and is always in my refrigerator.

Whether for making homemade cannabis ranch dressing or a delicious smoothie like this, it works in my different sweet or savory applications.

However, I understand dairy products like full-fat Greek yogurt are not for everyone.

If you want a dairy-free option, substituting full-fat greek yogurt for a plant-based yogurt is easy. 

Many types of delicious dairy-free yogurts are made from almonds, cashews, oats, and even my easy 2-ingredient homemade coconut milk yogurt.

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is so delicious, that it’s hard to believe it is nutritious, too.

When shopping for cocoa powder, it is very important to get a natural brand rather than a processed powder.

The natural version of cocoa powder is what contains more nutrients and beneficial ingredients.

Alternate Infusion Options

There are many different ways to infuse your cannabis smoothie, and you can choose one based on your available product and your personal taste preferences.

Always remember to dose based on your tolerance.

If you’re not sure how to start, follow the golden rule: start low and go slow.

Below are just a few smoothie infusion options to choose from:

  • 1 medium frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup cannabis fan leaves tightly packed

Notes

Yield: This recipe makes approximately 12 ounces.
CBD Variation: To make CBD oil or CBD butter, swap CBD dominant cannabis flower for THC dominant cannabis flower.
Ingredient Variation: If you do not have access to fresh mint leaves, you can easily use ¼ teaspoon of mint extract instead.
Flavor Variation: You can easily replace the spinach with any dark green leafy vegetable you enjoy, such as kale. Additionally, if you have access to fresh cannabis plants, you can use fresh cannabis fan leaves.
