Quick to Make – And So Healthy!
I absolutely love this spinach blueberry banana smoothie recipe. It’s only a few ingredients and super easy to make when you need something quick, on the go and healthy! Perfect for a breakfast smoothie or anytime of the day smoothie recipe.
- 1 cup vanilla almond milk (or your favorite plant based milk) – add a little more if you need to.
- 1 cup fresh organic spinach
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 frozen banana (I peel and freeze mine ahead of time so I always have some ready to go) If you don’t have a frozen banana you can use fresh, but you may have to add some ice to your smoothie to give it a thicker consistency.
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds (make sure to buy ground or milled flaxseeds and not whole) any brand will do.
- 1 teaspoon honey (optional) I didn’t add any this time because I’m using sweetened vanilla almond milk.
The Health Benefits of Spinach Blueberry Banana Smoothies
Spinach is often considered to be a superfood and packs high amounts of vitamins and nutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Iron and Calcium (just to name a few). Studies have shown that eating more greens like spinach, can help reduce your risk of diabetes and help fight off cancer.
Blueberries are extremely healthy for you and also considered a superfood. They are believed to have some of the highest antioxidant levels of all common fruits and vegetables. They are a good source of Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and help lower your risk of heart disease and cancer.
Ground flaxseeds are such an easy way to add extra nutrients to your meals. I add them in almost all of my smoothies and I even like adding some to my oatmeal and baked foods. Flaxseeds are a good source of Fiber, Magnesium, and Omega-3 fats (just to name a few). Some studies have shown that those who eat flaxseeds have a lower risk of breast cancer.
