Power pack your morning {or afternoon} with this Superfood Smoothie Recipe!

I admit it… I’m hooked on Smoothies packed with Spinach!  {I guess there are worse problems to be had}  I pinky promise you can’t taste it! ;)

Oh, and as long as you add some pretty colored fruit {especially blueberries}, it won’t turn out green either!



What You’ll Need:

  • 1 BIG Handful Fresh Spinach
  • 2 Cups Orange Juice
  • 2 Cups Non-Fat Milk
  • 1 Banana
  • 8 – 10 Frozen Strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries
  • 8 oz. Yogurt {I like to use Boysenberry, Blackberry, Strawberry, or Raspberry}
  • Optional: 1 tsp. Sugar

What You’ll Do:

  • Blend spinach, orange juice and milk together first. I use the ‘liquify’ option on my blender.
  • Once the spinach has blended well, add all other ingredients and blend.
  • If using fresh fruit, you can add in some ice cubes for more of a frozen consistency.
  • Enjoy!
  • If making these for someone else, you may want to wait until they’ve had it and raved about how much they enjoy it… before you share the secret with them… that they’re drinking spinach!

    I haven’t tried green smoothies. My kids LOVE smoothies and we have them almost every morning with breakfast. My kids actually love spinach and I add it to anything I can. I think I’ll sneak some in to their smoothies in the morning and see if they notice. I have a feeling they might not drink it as readily knowing veggies are in there, even if they enough said veggie. Thanks for the recipe and recommedation!

    This is totally like the Green Machine juice from Naked!

  3. Kim @ Forever Wherever says:

    Thanks so much for showing me that it doesn’t have to be green! :-) It looks and sounds great!

    Love your blog!

    Really does sound good and healthy.

    Wow thanks! I can’t wait to try it! I’ll have to go get a couple of the ingredients but it will be worth the trip. We love smoothies around here!

  6. Sandra says:

    I’m so glad you posted this. I just got a Vita Mix 2 weeks ago and I have been wanting to make a smoothie out of greens.

  7. Sherry says:

    I love doing green smoothies. I make them with milk, yogurt, whatever fruit, flavoring, sweetener, wheat bran, and egg white. :D

  8. The Blossoming Skillet says:

    We love spinach or kale in our smoothies. I also buy bananas or clearance and throw them in the freezer for cheap fruit and it just adds more nutrients and fiber for our morning. I also will add some of our non-sweetened applesauce we canned last year and our own juice that we canned too. It’s become my hubby’s favorite breakfast.

  9. Pami says:

    I am not much of a spinach eater but maybe I will change my mind if I try this sounds healthy.
    I love lots of smoothies and have a great strawberry banana one.

    My husband didn’t want any part of “green” in his smoothie when I first mentioned them. He was fine when he discovered that you couldn’t taste the spinach. He prefers them to not be too green, though. We like banana(helps to sweeten), strawberries, pineapple and plain yogurt. I usually add a bit of raw honey for sweetener and sometimes a dash of vanilla. Yum!

    Toot Toot!!
    I’m going to have to try this out. Sounds gross BUT doesn’t hurt to try especially since I’ve been experimenting smoothie flavors this week with my new blender… ;-)

  12. Multi-tasking Mommy says:

    I was just as skeptical as you, but about a month ago I tried it out and I’m hooked too!

    My fav smoothie is:

    1/2 cup frozen blueberries
    1/2 banana
    5 strawberries
    1/4 cup milk
    1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
    1 Tbsp ground flax seed
    a couple of hand fulls of spinach

  13. Kristen's Raw says:

    Heck yes! I love green smoothies :)

    A few of my easy faves:

    Banana/Spinach/Water
    Mango/Kale/Water
    Apple/Spinach/Cinnamon/Water

    Cheers to Green Smoothies and all of the energy they give us!

    I have just tried a recipe that a friend told me.

    It’s just apple juice, frozen spinach, and frozen berries. Super simple and easy to make.

    The kids and I made these the other day for the first time. The oldest (almost 3) and I enjoyed them, but the youngest (almost 2) not so much. You couldn’t taste the spinach at all!

  15. Tracy says:

    My freezer is always stocked with Spinach!! My kids love it. My pickiest eater has NO CLUE! Love green smoothies. Blueberries are the best at hiding the green. BUT…I have even resorted to calling the green smoothies Monster Smoothies (you know…monsters are green right?) and my 6 year old boy LOVES that!

  16. emilie says:

    I absolutely LOVE this idea…. I used to drink the SuperFood smoothie from Odwalla…. till I found out I was a celiac (they use wheat and other no-no grains). I am so excited to try this out and get my morning green back!

  17. TheRoosterChick says:

    Tried my 1st Green Smoothie this week and loved it! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  18. Heidi @ The Frugal Girls! says:

    You're very welcome, Rooster Chick… I'm glad you liked them!

    We have Green Smoothies about 5 times per week, and love them!

    They are great source of energy, and a fabulous way to sneak some spinach into the diet! :)

    Thanks for the recipe. I just tried it and I love it. My husband drank it all and then I told him it had spinach he was very surprised. I can't wait for the boys to try it when they get home from school.

  20. Kerry says:

    OMG, I can’t wait to try this! I just bought a Ninja (found on an infomercial but bought from Target) and this thing is too cool for the price. I’m picky and so are my kids so wish me luck! May even get real ambitious and try Amy’s (Muddy Boot Blog) green smoothie. Thanks for posting it!!
