Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach

Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach – Instead of apple or orange juice with breakfast, our kids drink this deliciously fruity Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach. And trust me, your kids won’t even know this smoothie is loaded with healthy greens.

We Skip Juice in Our House — Maybe You Should Too!

I’m really not a fan of juice, but I’m especially down on packaged boxed, jarred and canned juices. You will likely never see a carton of OJ or even 100% apple juice in my fridge.

In fact, even when my son was very little and all the kids had juice boxes we were a distinctly different no-juice box household. Why? First of all, many products marketed as “juice” are not 100% juice; they’re often nothing more than sugar water. But, even if the juice was 100% juice with no added sugar it’s still nowhere near comparable to eating fresh, live whole fruit.

Science tells us that eating the WHOLE fruit and vegetable is better for your health than just getting the juices from it. So, we have become a diehard-smoothie family. And with 2 young teenagers with opinions, I am very mindful to ensure that they not only look delicious but taste delicious too.

This Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach is our go-to morning smoothie and in a minute, you’ll learn why.

Ingredients for this Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach

The name gives it away – there’s definitely blueberries and spinach (or you can substitute with supergreen powder) in this Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach. Let me get right into the details.

The reason our kids love this Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach so much is because of the very intense blueberry flavor. In addition, there is creaminess from an organic banana and local picked apple. So, instead of juicing and leaving the nutrients behind, they get it all in this tasty smoothie.

The reason why I love this Blueberry Smoothie with Spinach is because they are getting 1.5 servings of vegetables with breakfast. An excellent way to start out the day.

Look for Wyman’s Wild Blueberries and New! Fruit Cups

Every week we load our freezer with 2-3 more bags of Wyman’s wild blueberries.

Small but mighty, wild blueberries have a very high total antioxidant capacity (ORAC). In fact, wild blueberries are higher than almost all of the typical fruits and vegetables you see at the grocery store.

Compared to cultivated blueberries, wild blueberries have a considerably higher ORAC value. The higher the ORAC value of a food the more powerful that food is at slowing the aging process, fighting disease, reducing inflammation and preserving health. You can learn more about the differences here.

If you love Wild Blueberries as much as we do – try these recipes: Wild Blueberry Oat Bars, Wild Blueberry Cobbler with Coconut Ice Cream and Baked Oatmeal with Wild Blueberries.

Choose Between Fresh Baby Spinach and Organic SuperGreens Powder

For the past 2 years, I keep a bag of organic supergreens in the smoothie supplement cupboard. Yes, we have that many supplements from acai, ashwaghanda, maca, camu camu, hemp seeds… so a full cupboard is set aside just to make household smoothies.

The organic supergreens has been a lifesaver. We typically go through about 4-6 containers of spinach a week and sometimes our fridge can’t fit it all. So, the supergreens has allowed us to still pack in the nutrients with less space. 1 teaspoon of organic supergreens is equivalent to 1.5 servings of greens. So every smoothie in our house gets either 3-4 cups of greens or 2 teaspoons of organic supergreens.

Pack in the Flaxseeds Using WHOLE, not MEAL

Another MUST in our morning smoothies is a 1/4 cup of whole flaxseeds in 2 smoothies. We do not use flaxseed meal in smoothies because in coagulates quickly and makes your smoothie difficult to drink through a straw. However, if you are using a high speed blender, the whole flaxseeds will be ground up and super easy to digest.

Flaxseeds are bursting with health benefits. You can expect omega-3 essential fats from the ALA’s, loaded with fiber and lignans.

Optional: Grass Fed Collagen or a Protein-Packed Boost

With growing kids and osteoporosis onset in my family, we pack a punch with grass fed collagen. The kids get it to keep their belly’s fuller longer while also providing essential collagen to their gastrointestinal. And of course, us adults benefit from it too. Adding just 20g to a 2 person smoothie recipe is plenty for the day.

Raw Food Recipes: Fruit & Veggie Smoothies are Easy To Make, Good to Eat & SO Healthy!

We do not promote a full vegan or raw diet, however, raw recipes are very helpful to have on hand and weave into your weekly menu.

Instead of juicing I prefer to make raw food smoothie recipes from whole fruits (and vegetables!) using a high speed blender.

Choose a High Speed Blender as an Investment

I have a Luvele Vibe that I absolutely LOVE but as long as you get a good quality high speed blender you should be good to go.

I’m big into greens these days so I try to add fresh leafy greens to my whole fruit based smoothies for an added nutrient-punch. If you are new to making “green” smoothie recipes you’ll probably want to mix some fruit in with your greens. Even though the blueberry smoothie below has a lot of kale in it I think it’s more kid-friendly because it doesn’t look green.

Blueberry Banana with Kale, thou no Kale in the recipe ingredients list? After reading and learning from your wonderful site, a handful might be what you recommend as a wonderful fresh & raw 'greens' add :)

oh my gosh! I am SO glad you caught this mistake. Yes, the Blueberry Banana Kale smoothie with Kale should have definitely had some kale listed in the recipe! Your suggestion was just perfect. I just tweaked the recipe. Thank you again for catching this!
