Blueberry Green Smoothie
Health Highlights


1 cup Baby spinach
1 cup Frozen blueberries
1 small Banana (s)
1 tbsp Chia seeds
1 cup Almond milk, unsweetened


At least a day ahead – peel and chop one banana into small slices and put them into the freezer.

When you're ready to fully prepare the smoothie – put the almond milk in first and then the chia seeds and allow the chia seeds a few minutes to absorb some of the almond milk (making them softer).

Then add the spinach greens (you want them close to the blade for better blending), and then add the rest of the ingredients. 

Blend until very smooth and creamy.

More sweetness

A ripe banana is often sweet enough, so you likely won't need to add any sweetener.  If you do want it even sweeter though, consider adding maple syrup or dates


No spinach  

Try kale.  It's a great neutral tasting alternative


Almond milk recommendation

A great brand is Three Trees Organic Almond Milk, Unsweetened Original – it's just two ingredients – almonds and water.  It's best shaken before pouring


For storage

Refrigerate in a mason jar or other air-tight container up to 48 hours.  Drink within 24 hours for maximum freshness, nutrition and taste


Prep tip

Portion out all ingredients except almond milk into a ziplock baggie.  Store in the freezer until ready to blend with almond milk


Recipe tip

Smoothies are the ultimate recipe for substitutions.  Try swapping different greens, fruits or seeds to match your preferences
