Harley Pasternak Spinach Smoothie Recipe

Celebrity Slim-Down Secret: Harley Pasternak's Sweet Spinach Smoothie

This spinach smoothie from trainer Harley Pasternak is a favorite of his celebrity clients (Julianne Hough is a fan!) for helping them stay on the right track, especially after an indulgent period.

Spinach is the star in this creamy smoothie, and for good reason — with just one 16-ounce serving, you'll be getting your entire recommended dietary allowance of vitamin A (great for healthy skin, hair, and eyes) and bone-building vitamin K, as well as an impressive amount of essential nutrients like manganese, potassium, and vitamin C. This 300-calorie smoothie is a good source of protein, making this veggie-packed smoothie a smart breakfast choice, especially if you're trying to lose weight.

It only calls for 2 cups of spinach, which is only a fourth of a container of spinach. Where did you get 16 oz from?

I am drinking it now. No, its not my chocolate peanut butter banana coconut milk breakfast protein shake that taste AHHHMAZING!! But Its a great healthy lunch. Its rich, creamy, and full of nutrients. I will have this a few times a week for sure.

Probably my favorite smoothie to make but I have to say, there's just no way to fit 16oz of spinach into this, its probably more accurate to say there's about 3oz in it. To give everyone an idea of how much 16oz of spinach is, you'd have to buy about 3 pre-packed boxes that you find at the grocery store, It's A LOT. Also, it would add up to about $12 worth of spinach for each smoothie. Not gonna happen.
