The BEST Spinach Smoothie Recipe!

This smoothie is a great way to feed nutritious greens into even picky eaters, since they can’t really taste the spinach. The creaminess from banana along with the milk and yogurt makes it tastes yummy. You will simply forget that you are drinking your greens.

Health Benefits

Spinach (also known as palak in Hindi) is packed with nutrients and antioxidants like magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, vitamin C, and soluble fiber. In addition, the leaves have a very mild flavor making it perfect for smoothies.

Bananas are rich in Vitamin B6, dietary fiber, potassium, and manganese. Potassium may help maintain a healthy heart and blood pressure, and manganese helps in the production of collagen.

Milk and Greek yogurt provide protein, creaminess, and probiotics in each glass. A refreshing and satisfying shake made in just under 5 minutes to keep you energized.

Can you taste the spinach?

Green smoothies are not often a favorite for everyone, especially kids. You cannot taste the spinach since it is blended with fruit, dairy and sweeteners. This is a great way to introduce spinach to those who are not fond of this leafy green.

What type of spinach to use?

We used the baby variety because the leaves are extremely tender, require no extra preparation, and have very little bitterness. We recommend not using frozen spinach, since it adds more bitterness and noticeable spinach taste.

Make it dairy free – Use plant based milk like almond milk and almond or cashew yogurt instead.

Frequently asked questions
