Make Panera’s Green Passion smoothie at home! It’s refreshingly sweet with peaches, mangoes, and passionfruit juice. You only need five minutes to whip one up for breakfast.
Why You’ll Love it:
Panera’s green passion smoothie tastes like juice! It’s refreshingly sweet with tropical vibes and you don’t even taste the spinach. My three year old sucked it down in just a few minutes.
At 6+ bucks per smoothie, it’s more cost effective to make it at home! You can buy all the ingredients and have enough for 7 smoothies!
Whenever I make a copycat recipe, I always pick up the original so I can compare them side by side. This Panera green smoothie copycat tastes just like the real deal.
Baby spinach – Baby spinach has a mild flavor and tender leaves that blend easily. If you use a high-speed blender, you won’t even know it’s in there!
Frozen mangoes & peaches – Frozen fruit thickens this smoothie without the need for ice! I buy a big of frozen mango at Costco so I never run out. They don’t carry frozen peaches so I buy them at my local grocery store.
White grape juice – For plenty of sweetness! Apple juice would work too.
Passionfruit juice – This is what gives this Panera smoothie it’s signature flavor! I found it in the juice aisle in a small carton. You only need 1/2 cup. You can use any extra in more smoothies!
How to Make a Green Passion Smoothie:
This Panera green smoothie recipe is super simple! C
Combine ingredients: In the pitcher of your high-speed blender, combine the spinach, frozen mango, frozen peaches, white grape juice, and passionfruit juice. Place the spinach closest to the blades.
Blend: Start the blender on low speed, then gradually increase the speed to high. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Serve: Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately!
- If possible, use a high-speed blender. Want a green smoothie without little bits of spinach in it? A high-speed blender is the answer! I highly recommend a Vitamix, but a Ninja is a good budget-friendly option.
- Start the blender on low speed. Doing so helps everything get moving before you bump it up to a higher speed. If you go straight to high, the mixture gets stuck.
- Adjust the consistency as needed. I don’t like watery smoothies, so I make mine on the thicker side. For a thinner smoothie, add a splash more juice and blend to incorporate.
Green smoothies are best enjoyed fresh! Technically, you can store this smoothie in the fridge for up to 24 hours. But the texture changes and you will need to give it a stir before you drink it.
If you have leftovers, you can make it into smoothie pops! Just pour the remaining smoothie into popsicle molds, add popsicle sticks, and freeze overnight.
- Greens – Swap the baby spinach with baby kale!
- Fruit – Try a different combination of fruit. Pineapple, mango, peaches, kiwi, or strawberries all taste great!
- Juice – Passionfruit juice is what gives this smoothie it’s signature flavor. If you want to switch things up, try a different kind of juice. Try pineapple or orange juice.
- Banana – For extra creaminess, add a banana.
