How do you make a Spinach Smoothie?

To get the smoothest, creamiest smoothie without pieces of spinach, a high-powered blender is recommended. The two major players here are Blendtec and Vitamix.

Both are great! I have a Blendtec at home but I use a Vitamix in culinary school. Just be sure to add your liquids first (in this case, water).

What are the benefits of Spinach Smoothies?

I am not a nutritionist. The complete benefits of spinach, or any ingredient, are beyond the scope of my expertise. I also cannot speak to the benefits of raw vs. cooked spinach.

Spinach is high in niacin, zinc, protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese.

The other ingredients in this smoothie, avocado and pineapple, have their own complimentary health benefits including increased vitamin and mineral absorption and lots of healthy fat.

Do Spinach Smoothies taste bad?

Not a chance! This one tastes sweet like pineapple and creamy like ice cream (thanks to the avocado). You won’t even notice the spinach.

Is it ok to eat spinach every day?

Yes, sure! There are so many nutrients in spinach, it can be advantageous to eat it regularly. However, spinach should be part of a wide, varied diet (so eating ONLY spinach is not a good idea).

    I have to admit, I drink smoothies to get as many servings in as I can. I do not eat spinach but I do put it in the smoothie too. I actually prefer it when my smoothie is green for some reason. I love your recipe and I love your blender :)5 stars
