Makes one serving

Prep time: 5 minutes


  • 1 serving vanilla Life Time Protein Powder
  • 1/2 small green apple, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 big handful of organic spinach or other greens, such as kale
  • 10–12 fresh mint leaves
  • 1–1.5 cups unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 3–5 ice cubes
  • 1/2 avocado (optional)
