Heart Smart Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
This smoothie is perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Packed with berries, spinach, bananas and more, this smoothie is super healthy for your heart!
Spinach is filled with nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, B vitamins, fiber as well as being very rich in folate which is important for building and maintaining healthy red blood cells, which the heart needs!
Sometimes leafy greens in smoothies can scare people away from trying them. This was me before, I used to think that the smoothie would end up tasting too much like a veggie juice. If that's the case for you, this is the perfect recipe for your first leafy green smoothie.
- 1 cup milk or almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 - 2 handfuls fresh spinach
- 1 1/2 tbsp almond butter
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
Combine all ingredients in a magic bullet or blender. Blend until smooth and serve immediately whilst still cold.
