What is Spinach Smoothie?

Spinach Smoothie is a smooth, creamy, and healthy green drink loaded with nutrients and vitamins. It is usually made with fresh spinach, pineapple, banana, greek yogurt, almond milk, healthy fat, and sweeteners.

Spinach is one of the superfoods that are good to include in your diet. And using them in smoothies has a lot of health benefits. Even though the green leaves are healthy, you might wonder how it is going to taste?

Spinach Smoothie ingredients placed on a table
  • Spinach – A good source of fiber, calcium, vitamins, iron, and minerals
  • Pineapple – Delivers the tropical fruit flavor and is also loaded with healthy nutrients and vitamins
  • Banana – Loaded with fiber and antioxidants and also makes the drink creamy and smooth. You can also make this Spinach Smoothie with no banana by replacing it with favorite fruits of your choice
