Clean Eating Smoothie Ingredients

Each of the ingredients used 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 Raw Cannabis Leaves

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

It is packed with many vitamins and minerals, and truly you can’t even 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 up.

Terpenes Found in Chocolate and Cannabis

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

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

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

According to one study published in Phytochemistry, menthol can also be used for headache relief, reducing fever, reducing acne, stimulating hair growth, and even asthma (1). 

Your Choice of Milk

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

Luckily, this smoothie is flexible and you can use any type of milk you desire.

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

Plant milk substitutions include:

Greek Yogurt

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

Whether it be 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 are looking for 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, 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.

Cannabis Smoothie Infusion Options

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

Always remember to dose based on your own personal 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:
