Ingredients needed

Ingredients to make blueberry spinach smoothie recipe.
  • You can choose your favorite non-dairy milk. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but coconut or cashew also work.
  • A stevia sweetened vanilla protein powder, or plant based if you prefer.
  • Unsweetened, all-natural nut butter of your choice.
  • Frozen blueberries help to thicken the smoothie, but you can also use fresh blueberries and add ice cubes.
  • Fresh spinach or frozen if you have it in your freezer.
  • Ice as needed to thicken to your desired consistency.

How to make a protein smoothie

Pour the milk into a blender, then add the protein powder, nut butter, frozen berries and spinach leaves.

Puree until smooth. My blender takes 54 seconds, but you may need to scrape the spinach leaves off the sides and give it a few more pulses to thorough combine.

Blueberry Spinach Smoothie Benefits

  • Spinach adds iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, folate, vitamins A, C and E, plus fiber to your smoothie.
  • Blueberries have high levels of antioxidants and fiber, manganese, vitamins C and K, while being low in calories and adding almost no fat.
  • You can substitute kale for the spinach, but it has a much stronger taste (and less iron). You may need to add a banana or some form of sweetener to blend the flavors better.
