Believe it or not, frozen fruit is highly nutritious. Fruit begins to lose it’s nutritional value right after it’s picked, but freezing fruit right after harvesting helps lock in those nutrients.

That means this strawberry spinach smoothie is full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

I love serving this strawberry spinach smoothie to my kids at breakfast time, on the weekends, or after school. There’s no better way to make use of raw spinach and frozen fruit!

  • Banana: I like to peel and slice ripe bananas, then bag them and put them in the freezer. This makes it easy to throw them into a smoothie when needed!
  • Strawberries: Frozen strawberries work great for this delicious smoothie. They’re affordable and nutritious! (You can also freeze your own fresh strawberries.)
  • Spinach: Use a cup of spinach leaves to add nutrients to this strawberry spinach smoothie.

Smoothie Mix-Ins

Sometimes I like to switch it up with my healthy smoothie recipes! I love that it can be easily altered depending on what I’m in the mood for or what I have on hand.

Here are some ideas on how to customize your strawberry spinach smoothie:

  • Add chia seeds or hemp seeds
  • Add vanilla protein powder
  • Substitute kale, Swiss chard, romaine, or other leafy greens for fresh spinach
  • Use your favored flavored fat free yogurt, rather than plain
  • Add honey or apple juice for natural sweetness
  • Add extra veggies, like frozen cauliflower rice
  • Add nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter are some of my favorites)
  • Use almond milk, oat milk, or cashew milk instead of yogurt

Storage Instructions

This smoothie is best enjoyed right after making. You can store it in the fridge if you’re not able to finish it right away, but I don’t recommend trying to freeze it. (The texture will be off.)

FAQs

Are spinach smoothies healthy?

Yes, spinach smoothies have many health benefits and are a perfect solution for busy mornings or any other time of day. They’re an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin K, and more.

Can you blend raw spinach in a smoothie?

Yes, you can blend raw spinach in a smoothie. I recommend adding sweetness from orange juice or honey to mask the flavor. Once you blend it up with raw fruit, ice, yogurt, and/or milk, you won’t even notice it’s there!

Can you taste spinach in a strawberry smoothie?

No. If you add sweet ingredients like orange juice and strawberries to a smoothie, you will not taste the spinach in your fruit smoothie.

Expert Tips & Tricks

  • Feel free to substitute spinach for kale. If I’m using kale, I don’t pack the measuring cup as full. I usually add 1-2 loose handfuls.
  • You may want to thin the smoothie with up to 1/2 cup juice/water to the consistency you like.
  • I cut bananas into slices before freezing them so they blend well and create a nice, creamy texture.

    First time user and what an incredible smoothie!
    I added coconut juice instead of orange juice and low fat yogurt. Absolutely tasty and has set me off for the morning.
    Thank you very much!

  2. Question:When making the smoothie do you cut the bananas in slices or do you cut it in half I need to know before I make this smoothie

  3. this recipe is really good. However, I think I added a bit too much orange juice which really overpowered everything else. But overall I liked this a lot!

  4. Great share!!! The amount of potassium in bananas also makes it a good fruit that can help to decrease kidney stone. Strawberries promote good eyesight and decrease symptoms of arthritis. Thanks

  5. So glad I found this post. Just started using smoothies. Was wondering how to use spinach and not get a green colored smoothie!
