Spinach berry smoothie is easy to make with 4 simple ingredients, and are full of antioxidants, fiber and low in calories and no refined sugar.
This spinach berry smoothie is full of antioxidant-rich berries, spinach high in iron and carrots full of vitamin C. This vegan and gluten free smoothie is also full of enriching antioxidants, and essential nutrients such as anthocyanins. Like my other breakfast drinks, including my carrot ginger juice, blender homemade orange juice , my broccoli smoothie with fruit, and my beet juice, this breakfast smoothie will boost your day.
Spinach. I use prewashed baby spinach for the convenience.
Berries. I used blueberries and cranberries, but any berry mix will do.
Carrots. Frozen shredded carrots add a sweet frosty flavor and texture.
Milk. You'll need milk to create a smooth texture. I used almond milk.
If you want a sweeter smoothie, add ½ a frozen banana or a date or 2.
See the recipe card at the bottom for full information on ingredients and quantities.
Spinach. Any leafy green works.
Berries. Use any combo of blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, or cranberries. Frozen or not.
Carrots. Zucchini also works, fresh or frozen.
Milk. You'll need some milk but you can also use half yogurt for a creamier texture.
How to Make a Spinach Berry Smoothie
For more detail, visit the complete and printable recipe at the bottom of this post, but here are general steps.
Step 1: Add all ingredients to a blender, with the leafy greens and milk at the bottom so the blender blades hits them first.
Step 2: Blend until creamy. This might take up to a minute depending on your blender type.
If you don't have a powerful blender, blend the spinach and milk alone first so it breaks down before adding the rest of the ingredients.
To power up this smoothie, add a ¼ cup rolled oats and 2 tablespoon chia seeds. This basically turns it into a meal replacement smoothie.
Yes! Use prewashed baby spinach or if you use regular spinach, wash it with a veggie wash and spin it dry.
Yes if made with wholesome and fresh ingredients, with nothing processed and no sugar added.
No, you should not drink the same smoothie everyday. Changing your fruits and vegetables daily provide you with a wide panel of nutrients. Also, daily spinach or kale can cause a build up of alkaloids that can cause health issues.
Spinach is rich in iron, protein, and vitamin C. Blueberries are high in antioxidants and other compounds that give it the purple color that has unique nutritional support.
