Spinanaberry Smoothie

This is my all time favorite go-to smoothie. It really packs a punch. Some may call it a "green smoothie," but really it's my spinanaberry smoothie.

2 c. orange juice
4 c. packed fresh spinach
2 bananas
5 frozen strawberries
2 T. flax seed oil, not pictured
8-10 ice cubes, not pictured 

The health benefits are just as outstanding as the flavor. Alone, the spinach packs a whopping 360% vitamin k, 100% vitamin a and 10% iron. Great way to start a morning. Don't you agree?

When making a green smoothie, it is important to start with the liquid and secondly with the leafy greens. Blend to desired consistency, breaking down the spinach.

Finally, add in the banana, strawberries, flax seed oil (if using) and ice cubes. Blend and serve.

Makes 2 - 16 oz. smoothies.

Having trouble fitting all your necessary veggies and fruits into your daily meals? This is a helpful way to incorporate them. Personally, I eat lots and lots of veggies each day, but struggle with eating enough fruit. So this is my way of getting in a few extra dark leafy greens, but more so, fruit. Have you played around with any green smoothie recipes? What is your favorite combination? Please share! I would like to bulk up my arsenal, plus the warm months are just around the corner!


  1. So good! I had everything and was so glad I did! This was great, made my morning after shoveling! I too eat more veggies than fruit so love getting fruits in this way! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Megan made a green smoothie for the boys the other day. They were a little hesitant at first, but she told them it was an Incredible Hulk smoothie and they dove right in!

  3. Our daily early morning breakfast consists of an energy shake:
    almond milk with banana, frozen strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, pineapple, applesauce, etc.
    2 TBSP. Flaxseeds
    2-3 TBSP. Chia Seeds
    Sometimes 2-3 TBSP. Sprouted Sunflower Seeds
    Kale Mix
    All raw
    blended together and drink...yummy and full of antioxidants!
    Drink to health!
