Spinach Berry Smoothie

Add this Spinach Berry Smoothie to your regular rotation and reap all the health benefits.

Berries are one of my very favorite smoothie additions. They are loaded up with antioxidants, phytonutrients like anthrocyanins, fiber, and are low in sugar.

Why Are Berries So Healthy Anyway?

All berries are packed with antioxidants that help fight inflammation, including huge amounts of vitamin C – way more than you’ll get in an orange.

Berries are very high in fiber, as I already mentioned. It’s important to get adequate fiber each day to keep your digestive system in tip-top shape, which in turn will help the rest of your body function properly as well.

Blood sugar and insulin levels may improve when berries are consumed on a regular basis.

Heart health can also be positively affected by eating berries because they may help lower cholesterol levels.

Is It Healthy To Eat Berries Everyday?

Yes! Eat berries as often as you are able to take advantage of the amazing health benefits. Not to mention they taste delicious.

Here are some other ways to eat berries beyond blending them into a smoothie:

  • Top oatmeal, yogurt, toast, pancakes, and waffles with a giant handful of berries to add natural sweetness and beautiful color to your breakfast!
  • Add a serving of berries to a green salad
  • Pair a serving of berries with a serving of nuts for a nutrition-packed snack.
  • Think outside the box: add berries to homemade pizza or sandwiches, make homemade chia seed and berry jam or sauce, make fruit kabobs to go with dinner, etc.

Can Berries Help You Lose Weight?

Berries, especially blueberries, may help the body regulating burning fat and fat storage. This in turn may help reduce cholesterol levels and abdominal fat.

The best advice for weight loss is to eat a variety of healthy foods, mostly plants (Hi, Michael Pollan!), paying attention to your hunger cues, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, and move your body in a way that feels good.

    Berry smoothies usually have a tart taste that I don’t love… yet this recipe is so creamy, sweet and rich. It’s always a winner in my house and I love that it’s part of the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge.

    I was gonna say, I will probably skip this one but Jen Hansard addressed my concerns in a comment above so it’s all in for me this week..

    I LOVE berries! I don’t love bananas, though. I may sub half the banana for some avocado to get that creamy texture!

    I made the Berry Blast for my “Day 1” Smoothie Challenge. It is yummy, not too sweet, and easy to drink. Might try it with avocado another time.

    Forgot to leave my rating in my comment. I give this one a 5. I made it with just strawberries and it is not too sweet.

    Yum! This is a delicious smoothie! I love the berry mix paired with the banana! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Simple and delicious! I used a strawberry-blueberry-cherry blend and it was perfect. Sweet and fruity. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t have that beautiful fresh green color … hazards of adding berries to your green smoothie! But the great taste more than makes up for the brownish color.

    I like to add a little PB2 powder to this one and get some added protein after a run!

    This is 100% one of my GO-TO smoothies. Chances are, you have ALL the ingredients in your fridge. So there’s never an excuse to not make a smoothie, even when you’re scrounging for groceries! It doesn’t include any specific exotic fruits nor ingredients that “may not be in season”. It’s a good safety-net smoothie, and totally delish. 🙂

    Love this combination of greens and berries in this smoothie. Not too sweet just the perfect hint of sweetness. Very tasty!

    This was delicious also. I should probably have swapped the avocado in because my BG is still too high but it was quite delicious!
