Spinach Blueberry Smoothie

Start your morning with a spinach blueberry smoothie with brainfood to kickstart your day. 

This morning I got up and made a dairy-free spinach blueberry smoothieThis is my new breakfast drink. I usually wake up and have a glass of water with a little lemon and raw apple cider vinegar. I have heard many benefits of doing this and it helps balance the acidity in your body. Then I switched over to the green smoothie.

I got a Ninja Smoothie Blender for Christmas. I had been wanting one for a while. They are so easy and clean-up is a breeze. They are great for smoothies, shakes, and food processing. Everyone in the family is enjoying my gift. Sometimes I wonder if it was for me at all. Here is a list of our best Smoothies recipes you might also enjoy.

Best Practice for Making Smoothies

I start out by putting in some spinach and kale, if I have it, into the Ninja, usually just a small handful. Then I add different fruits. Today I added some frozen peaches and frozen blueberries. Then I add some flax seed or chia seed. I then put in half of a banana or avocado, (did you know they sell frozen avocado cubes) best idea for smoothies.

You can add water but I need some good fats in my smoothie, so I add unsweetened coconut milk and a teaspoon of coconut oil. Another alternative is almond milk. Just check the sugar content. You want to make sure you are getting unsweetened for the best benefit.

Put it on the blender and about 30 seconds later, you have a delicious smoothie. It is the quickest breakfast you can make and it is so easy to clean up.

 Benefits of Green Smoothies

I haven’t found out all the benefits of my blueberry green smoothie, except I know that I am getting my green veggies, antioxidants from the blueberries, vitamin E from the sunflower seeds, and dairy-free and has coconut milk for lots of great stuff. Oh, and the banana has lots of great benefits like potassium and more.

The possibilities are endless with this spinach and blueberry smoothie. I love that you can add any fruit, liquid, and superfoods and get a delicious and nutritious drink with very few calories. It’s the easiest way for me to get my veggies and fruits. I drink so much during the day and now I get my liquid and nutrition in one.

    1. Me too. I is so easy, sometimes I don't like to make a lot of food or eat a lot of food and this makes me feel like I got all my nutrition but not so full.

    1. Yes, it is really good. Extra Vitamin E. My friend just dropped off a large Raw bag for me from Trader Joes.

  2. Wow! That looks amazing! I have to try sunflower seeds and avocado in my smoothie. That’s something I never thought of putting in there. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I really need to dust off my blender and look into creating smoothies. This would be a nice way to start the day. Fresh fruit, a sweet drink and vitamins!

  4. omg that smoothie looks so good! I think I maight make that right away! thanks for the recipe.

  5. I like smoothies because they are an easy way to disguise things that are good for you that you don’t like. That’s not just true for kids. ­čÖé Green smoothies are my fave.

  6. I don’t make smoothies as often as I should. I think I might like this but would need to switch out the coconut oil and soy milk for regular milk. I’d also add some Chia Seeds.
