Strawberry, Banana, Blueberry

Oh, this smoothie is a good one! It's full of iron, potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants, just to name a few. You can swap the orange juice for a navel orange (just peel it first!). We often add olive leaf extract, echinacea, and elderberry extract which are great all natural extracts to boost the immune system and fight off infection. Read the bottles for serving measurements and add to your smoothie before blending.

Strawberry, Banana, Blueberry

Serves 2


Ingredients

  • 2 cups spinach, fresh
  • 34 cup water
  • 34 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 bananas

Instructions

Blend spinach, orange juice and water until smooth. Next add the remaining fruits and blend again.

*Use at least one frozen fruit to make the green smoothie cold.*



Tip: Thanks to the blueberries, this green smoothie is more like a purple smoothie, which is great for kids and those who are afraid of the "green" color.

    Can I use ice instead of water?

    This was the first from the website I tried (usually I throw a bunch of stuff in and blend) – I am doing the October challenge and wanted to see if my family would do it with me. We all loved this (my kids are 4 and 6). I am not a huge banana fan – cannot eat them by alone but the berries balanced this out nicely! Can’t wait for next week!

    about how many calories are in this smoothie?

      Hey Tim.

      We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data and the phone apps My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    Just tried this same recipe and i loved it :) For the other half i added milk and it also tasted yummy. I tasted the orange juice and spinach only after the initial mix and it was also good. Thanks !

      Happy to hear you enjoyed it. :) Keep blending those leafy greens! :)

    Just wondering do u have to use a blender? I have both nutribullets the regular and the pro, can I use them instead?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 9.16.2014 at 2:24 pm #

      Hey Seven. Yes. we like Nutri bullets! Jen: For the past few years I have been using a Warner blender that I got for my wedding 8 years ago. It was a $70 blender that worked okay. It turned my produce into a smoothie, yet it left chunks of spinach and was very loud. It finally died and I immediately went online and bought a refurbished Vitamix 5200 for $329. It came within a week and blends like a beast — no spinach leaf is left unblended when this bad boy is done. It’s insane.

      Jadah: I first started with my Magic Bullet (until I burned the motor out). Then I borrowed my in-laws Thermomix until I could get my hands on a high-speed blender. The Blendtec blender is my baby now. I just love the Blendtec’s sleek design, and the 94oz BPA-free jug is awesome when you are making big batches for your family or prepping for a detox cleanse.

    Just made this but subbed coconut water for water and added half an orange. Absolutely delicious!

    Hi!
    I love this smoothie, but it doesn’t fill me up very well. Any suggestions? I don’t like feeling hungry in the mornings :(

  9. Patricia 8.17.2014 at 9:55 am #

    I’m new to smoothies and recently tried green smoothie cleanse book. They were not tasty and that was pretty much all I could have per day with no more than 2 boiled eggs, an apple and a handful of raw nuts. Needless to say I’m starving. Just thought I’d google and your site popped up. I hope these taste better.

    Hi, love the site

    Im new to the smoothie scene but have a question.

    I have noticed that all your smoothie recipes don’t say how many calories are in the smoothie?

    I personally think people would like to know how many calories are in there smoothie so they can calculate there daily intake??

    Just a suggestion

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 8.6.2014 at 7:52 pm #

      Hi Tony!

      Thanks for the suggestions. We personal do not count calories. When you deprive your body of calories, it actually holds onto water and excess weight. For optimal weight loss, you need to nourish your body with whole foods, so you get the essential vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants your body needs. Calories are deceiving and not the basis for determining what is healthy. For example, if something is low in calories, it’s not necessarily good for you. In fact, it’s often the opposite. It’s much more important to focus on having good quality protein, healthy fats and loads of vegetables and fruit to get all the goodness that you need. If you would like to count calories we suggest MyFitnessPal or LoseIt. :) Hope that helps.

    Good info. Lucky me I ran across your website by chance (stumbleupon).
    I have book-marked it for later!

      Thanks Flynn! Stay awhile and look around! :)

    Hi

    Great website! I am not fan of bananas and they have more calories than other fruits, can I substitute sour sop pulp for bananas in your recipes please? Are your smoothies about 120 calories for about 8oz or 1 cup?

    I am excited to make smoothies from your recipe, I like in Africa, so I have access to a lot of the ingredients and am a mission to lose weight!

    A thousand thank yous!

      Hey Dayo.

      I have not heard of sour sop pulp. Here are some our favorite banana free recipes. http://simplegreensmoothies.com/green-smoothie-recipes/banana-free-green-smoothie-recipes
