Blueberry Banana Spinach Smoothie

12.27.2019


Smoothies are the perfect fast food when you’re craving something quick and nutritious. This creamy blueberry banana spinach smoothie is a great one for kids (and adults!) who want something sweet, yet also extra good for your body.

Not all smoothies are as healthy as we’d like to think. First off, a 100% fruit smoothie is going to be packed with vitamins, minerals… yet also loaded with sugar. The upside is that using whole fruit means you’re getting:

  • natural sugars which give you energy and fuel
  • extra fiber which will slow down the absorption of sugars into your blood stream

The downside is that you’re not gonna be full for long (it’s too light)… and you could make it even healthier without much work. (That’s where the greens come in!) Let’s talk about that now…

Turn a fruit smoothie into a green smoothie

Transforming a fruit smoothie into a green smoothie is super easy and the health benefits soar. You’ll be full longer, helping with weight loss, and adding phytonutrients to your diet, helping prevent disease and keep your body working properly.

You can take any smoothie recipe you love and add 1 cup (or a handful of spinach or another smoothie-approved leafy green) to it and you won’t even taste the difference. Yet you can be proud of yourself for adding a whole cup of spinach to your body!

Top health benefits of a Berry Banana Spinach Smoothie

Using plant-based ingredients in your smoothie is a great way to boost your daily vitamin intake and minimize inflammation. The ingredients we’re blending in this smoothie have some wonderful health benefits….

  1. Blueberries are low in calories but high in fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K.
  2. Strawberries are a good source of vitamin C, manganese, folate (vitamin B9), and potassium.
  3. Spinach is packed with high amounts of carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, and calcium.

    ANOTHER FAVOURITE.

    So so sad to see day 9 appear on my challenge of 10 days. I find these challenges amazing , pre prepared shopping lists and easy day to day recipes that are quicker to prepare than a cup of coffee . If you haven’t tried Simple Green Smoothies you need their Facebook page, app , challenges and recipes in your life – so so delicious !!!

  2. Cynthia says:

    Love this one! Berries and banana are delish!

  3. Melissa Chiappone says:

    This one is one I always use, minus the almond milk. I have a BIG bag of frozen mixed berries so I’m always throwing those in when i need some fruit. And frozen fruit always makes my smoothies so yummy!

  4. Lmtorres5 says:

    Color is a bit of a turnoff but it was delicious!!

  5. Atlanta says:

    I really liked this one.

  6. Anna says:

    Not an awesome colour but had a good taste.

  7. Sheila says:

    awesome flavors combined together! Loved it!

  8. Krista says:

    I liked the smoothie, berry and banana smoothies are my usual go-to. Adding the spinach gave it a nice twist.

  9. Justina says:

    I liked it. Smoothies are just a easy meal.

  10. Josie M says:

    Another great smoothie!

  11. Margaret Eacker says:

    Had this for dinner last night as I missed a day earlier in the week. It was good. I really like the berries. I used avocado instead of the banana.

  12. Diana says:

    Another good one. Used mixed organic greens and added collagen, chia seeds, protein powder and 2 smoothie cubes to make it a meal replacement.
    I used a avacado in place of the banana and a combination of blueberries, raspberries and cranberries.

  13. Meagan says:

    A win for sure & I added everything but the kitchen sink. Including a beet & zucchini

  14. CJ says:

    This one has a very heavy banana taste. Next time I will add more berries and half a banana. I used blueberries and strawberries. Threw in a few basil leaves I had too.

  15. Steve Dreger says:

    Banana and berries taste great together.
