Banana Blueberry and Spinach Smoothie

One of my favorite ways to start my day is drinking a healthy, plant-based smoothie.  Since I started eating solely whole food plant-base recipes, my outlook and health has improved dramatically.  At 44, I have more energy throughout my whole day than I did when I was thirty.  I am truly amazed and thrilled!

This Banana Blueberry and Spinach smoothie recipe is one I use to get more iron and phytonutrients into my family.  They have no idea their slurping down fresh spinach. All they can taste is the banana and blueberries.


serves 4

  • 3 cups firmly packed baby spinach
  • 3 medium cold bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ground flaxseed
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk (soy, almond, coconut, etc.)

Blend on high in a drink blender for a minimum of  20 seconds, long enough for the spinach to blend down into non-existence.  This will keep all day in the fridge.  The color will darken slightly because of the bananas, but it will still taste delicious.
