Fresh spinach is the ultimate superfood. High in vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and fiber, this good green stuff should definitely be incorporated into your diet whenever possible. Snacking on healthy spinach dip is one way to enjoy, but we love blending this leafy green into our smoothies. It bumps up the nutritional value tenfold — and you can't even taste it in the following six blends.
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
This not-too-sweet pumpkin and spinach smoothie relies on the clean, slightly sweet taste of pumpkin puree as a base. This is perfect for someone who wants to start with a fresh and seasonal smoothie that doesn't necessarily taste like dessert.
Avocado Aloe Spinach Smoothie
Detox deliciously with this green power smoothie. In addition to nutrient-rich spinach, this drink hydrates with coconut water and aloe vera juice and flushes out toxins with fresh lemon juice. The addition of creamy avocado brings anti-inflammatory omega-3s to the mix.
Chocolate Spinach Smoothie
Chocolate and spinach may not seem compatible, but this chocolate spinach superfood blend proves that they're a match made in smoothie heaven. Enjoy this smoothie as a snack or as a replacement to dessert.
