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 smoothie. This 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 Blenders for Making Smoothies
When making smoothies, the best consistency is achieved when using a high-powered blender. I use a Ninja Smoothie Maker. You can also use a Vitamix. This will blend the frozen fruit the best, and not leave chunks of fruit or ice. I prefer to use a mix of fresh and frozen fruit without ice.
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.
