If you want a delicious drink that’s full of superfoods, you’ll love this blueberry spinach smoothie. You’ll love the sweet, creamy flavor and your body will love all of the nutrients it contains.
Back when I used to count every calorie, I hated smoothies. Why would I drink my calories, when I could savor them in something else that would allow me bite after bite of delicious goodness?
This was one of many beliefs that changed when I had kids. Life as a busy mom makes it hard to find time to get all of your key nutrients everyday.
Smoothies are such an easy and convenient way to get a whole heap of important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in just a few minutes. Plus, kids love them so it’s a great way to help them eat healthy, even if they normally turn their nose up at fresh fruits and vegetables.
What I Love About This Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
I love experimenting with different combinations in my smoothies. I have a basic smoothie formula I use for combining ingredients and I used it as the base for choosing ingredients for this one.
Following the formula, I loaded this smoothie with protein, calcium, probiotics, antioxidants, plus a variety of essential vitamins and minerals. This blueberry spinach smoothie is loaded with superfoods that pack a powerful healthy punch.
Blueberry Spinach Smoothie Recipe
To make this blueberry spinach smoothie, you just need:
Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Banana (fresh or frozen)
Spinach (fresh or frozen)
And a spoonful of chia seeds if you really want to load up on super foods.
If you used a frozen ingredient, you won’t need to add any ice for a thick, slushy-like consistency. If you opted for all fresh ingredients, you’ll want to add a few ice cubes.
Combine all of the ingredients in your blender (I use a Ninja single serving cup) and blend well.
- 1 cup greek yogurt
- 1 cup wild blueberries fresh or thawed
- 1 1/2 cups packed spinach fresh preferred
- 1/2 - 1 frozen banana
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds optional
Place all ingredients in a smoothie blender and puree until smooth.
Taste and adjust ingredients as desired.
