7/11 In Japan: Healthy Green Smoothie Challenge

7/11 In Japan: Healthy Green Smoothie Challenge

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

We all know that convenience stores in Japan are pretty amazing. You can basically survive in Japan just by living off of 7/11 and convenience stores are pretty much a big part of everybody’s daily life here. You can find 7/11 and other convenience stores in almost every corner!

I’m a big fan of smoothies and shakes and I make them all the time. One day I wondered if I could make a healthy green smoothie based on ingredients I can find at the 7/11 near my house. What do you think? Can I make a healthy green smoothie using only ingredients I find in 7/11 Japan? Let’s find out!

What I found at 7/11 near my house…

Ingredient Number 1: Bananas🍌

Banana is an essential ingredient to the smoothie as it has lots of health benefits and adds a nice, smooth, sweetness!

Ingredient Number 2: Apples🍏

Apples also have a lot of health benefits and adds a nice yummy-ness to the smoothie. It helps hide the taste of the leafy greens and makes the smoothie taste better!

Ingredient Number 3: Frozen Spinach🥬

I was surprised to find this ingredient at 7/11! Frozen spinach cut into convenient pieces! The spinach is a key ingredient to the green smoothie and is mainly what makes this smoothie green. It has a lot of health benefits and it doesn’t ruin the taste of the smoothie, making it easy and enjoyable to drink!

Ingredient Number: Frozen Avocados🥑

I can’t believe they had this! Avocados are a great source of healthy fats that will keep you full for a while. It also adds creaminess to the smoothie making the texture and the taste even better!

Ingredient Number 5: Almond Milk🥛

Almond milk is plant based and is also a great source of vitamin E! It’s a good idea to use nut milk instead of Dairy to make the smoothie extra healthy!

Blend Them Together!

After adding all of the ingredients, I blended them all together. Fingers crossed, I really hope it tastes ok!

The Final Outcome

It tasted amazing! I didn’t taste the spinach at all and the smoothie tasted like a creamy snack! The ingredients from 7/11 worked and I was able to make a successful smoothie. I think I will keep buying the frozen spinach from 7/11 as it is quite convenient and the quality feels pretty high. The taste is also not as strong as the spinach I usually get from the super market.

Over all I give this ⭐⭐⭐⭐ stars out of Five! I was surprised to find ingredients such as frozen spinach and avocado and the results were better than I expected!

I usually like to add natural nut butter and chia seeds to my smoothies for extra protein and fiber.
