Healthy Power Smoothie with Berries and Spinach

Happy New Year, friends! Can you believe another year has gone by? It’s hard to believe, but my love handles are certainly letting me know that the holidays have, in fact, come and gone – so I guess last year really is over!

Spinach Smoothie

As a result of the new padding around my hips, I’m straying from my usual sharing of gooey, sugary, baked goods and changing it up with a New Years Resolution-friendly power smoothie recipe to help (all of us!) get back on track.

This healthy smoothie is packed with antioxidants and nutrients, plus it is straight-up delish. It’s got a lot of spinach and maybe some other veggies (depending on what you choose), but you would never know it.

What is a Power Smoothie?

Power smoothies combine fruits and vegetables to provide certain nutrients and fill in holes in your diet. That means if you are short on fiber (for example), you can grab a avocado and throw it into this smoothie.

Honestly? It’s hard to make a smoothie taste bad, in my personal opinion. I always do a combination of berries and greens, sometimes along with a healthy fat – and it works.

If you get quality ingredients and play around a bit, you’ll learn the ratios that you like. Start with fruits and veggies you know you like and go from there.

Power Smoothie Ingredients and Benefits

If you’re looking to boost a particular area of your diet with a healthy smoothie recipe, consider some of the following ingredients depending on your needs.

You can go by our spinach smoothie recipe, but these ingredients are perfect to throw in as alternatives or additions:

  • Calcium – Greek Yogurt, Milk or Alternatives (like Almondmilk, etc)
  • Fats – Almonds/Butter, Avocado, Cashews, Coconut Oil, Flaxseed Oil or Flaxseed
  • Fiber – Avocado, Flaxseed, Oats
  • Potassium – Apricots, Avocado, Bananas, Coconut Water, Mango
  • Probiotics – Greek Yogurt, Kefir
  • Protein – Almonds/Butter, Cashews, Chia or Hemp Seeds, Protein Powder, Spinach,
  • Vitamins – Any Berries, Kale, Oranges, Spinach, Tofu

Tips for the Perfect Smoothie

If you want your smoothie recipe to turn out perfectly, here are six tips I live by:

  1. Use frozen berries and vegetables. You don’t have to buy them frozen, but I like having a really cold smoothie. It helps to freeze them in individual bags if you are a smoothie junkie! And honestly it keeps the veggies from overwhelming the taste of the smoothie for me.
  2. Use baby greens to avoid bitter tasting veggies and a bitter tasting smoothie.
  3. Use a decent blender. I have a Blendtec. It was more expensive, but I love smoothies and it sure beats futzing with a blender constantly, which is what I was doing before.
  4. Load the blender with liquids first, then soft fruits or veggies, then frozen stuff or ice on top.
  5. Thin your smoothie with almondmilk or even water if need be. It’s not going to kill the taste.
  6. Sweeten a smoothie with agave, dates, grapes, honey, maple syrup, Stevia, or Truvia.
