Wake up to a refreshing and healthy blueberry spinach smoothie for breakfast!
Easy Spinach Blueberry Smoothie
This healthy and easy Blueberry Spinach Smoothie recipe is an antioxidant-packed vegan breakfast with five simple ingredients that make you feel your best.
As much as I love a decadent breakfast like Fluffy Vegan Oreo Pancakes, most mornings, I prefer to keep things light and healthy. This spinach and blueberry smoothie is a delicious way to start your day with fruits and vegetables. If you love my other smoothie recipes, like this Mango Chia Seed Smoothie or this creamy Sweet Potato Smoothie, you’re going to want to add this drink to your weekly breakfast plan ASAP.
How to Make Blueberry Spinach Smoothies
This recipe makes two servings. But you can easily double or half the recipe to meet your needs. All you need is a blender and a few simple ingredients.
Almond milk. You can use any dairy-free milk to blend your blueberry smoothie.
Blueberries. Fresh or frozen berries both work.
Spinach. Again, fresh or frozen spinach will work. Frozen will give you a thicker smoothie.
Flaxseed meal. This adds fiber and healthy fats to your smoothie. Plus, it yields a thicker, creamier texture.
Cinnamon. I like a dash of spice, but you can omit the cinnamon if you like.
Health Benefits of Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
Blueberries and spinach are both known as superfoods for a reason. Here are some of the key nutrients and health benefits you’ll get from this morning drink:
Antioxidants. Both spinach and blueberries are full of plant-based antioxidants, which can help fight cancer-causing free radicals.
Fiber. Blueberries are an excellent source of dietary fiber. This helps improve digestion and can keep your gut microbiome healthy.
Omega-3 fatty acids. These are good fats found in flaxseed meal. Each tablespoon has 1.8 grams of the healthy fats.
