Spinach Berry Smoothie Recipe

I’m in love with smoothies right now.. When I sat down to write down my goals for this year, one of those goals was to pay better attention to what my family eats. Right now, I’m all about smoothies. They’re easy to make, delicious and full of fruits and veggies that are oh so good for you. This Spinach Berry Smoothie is my newest obsession. Not only is it full of spinach but it’s delicious too! Each morning I kick start my day with one of these delicious smoothie.

Mornings are crazy at my house. I need to get the baby fed and ready for the day, my son’s lunch made, breakfast made and still make sure he gets out the door on time with everything he needs. It’s hectic and I don’t always have time to sit down and eat. I’m also someone who can’t eat a big meal first thing in the morning, but if I don’t have something I’ll start snacking on junk food by ten o’clock.

The best part about this smoothie is that it’s loaded with spinach and it’s something my son actually eats. The first time I announced that I put spinach in there, he had every excuse in the world why he couldn’t drink it. I let it go and realized next time I wouldn’t say anything. I would just make it and give it to him. That’s exactly what I did and ten minutes he came running in the kitchen asking for more. That’s what I call a mom win!

After about a week of him drinking the smoothies with spinach, I finally told him my secret. He was shocked but now readily asks for spinach in all versions of my smoothies. Any time I get him to eat more veggies is a plus for me.

Spinach Berry Smoothie
Ingredients:
  • 1 Banana sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 big handfuls of spinach
  • 2 – 2 1/2 cups of OJ
  • 1 tbsp. of flax seed
In a blender add fruit, flax seed and OJ. Depending on how many smoothies I’m making (usually 3), will depend on how much juice I add. I use the liquify button on my blender to make sure everything is chopped up nice and fine.
Poor into a glass and enjoy!
Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? I’d love to hear it!

I need to figure out how to make this w.o the bananas. I am a smoothie fan and on the search for the perfect green one. Maybe this will work if I tweak it some!
