It’s time for another simple, delicious, and healthy smoothie recipe!

This nutritionally balanced strawberry banana spinach smoothie is packed with a mix of whole food ingredients containing all of the macronutrients (fats, carbs, and proteins) and loads of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). The spinach takes a classic smoothie combo of strawberries and banana up a notch with a dose of green goodness.

I love the flavour of this satisfying smoothie and it’s just so easy to whip up, even for the most novice smoothie-makers! 

Absolutely! Spinach smoothies can often be very fruit-forward so adding in some veggie or leafy-green goodness is always a plus in my books!

This spinach smoothie recipe has a ton of nutrients and benefits which I share more of below, so it makes a great, healthy addition to many smoothies and won’t affect the overall flavour very much at all. In fact, you may not even taste spinach at all which is great for picky eaters that won’t like to taste the spinach.

  • I didn’t know frozen bananas make for a smoother smoothie. I have some in the freezer for making 1-ingredient banana “ice cream”. Now I can use them for something else. Thanks for the tip!
