This fruity and filling blueberry spinach smoothie is a power packed breakfast.
There’s no better way to start your day than with a delicious superfood smoothie and this one is no exception!
It’s full of antioxidants from the berries and spinach and loaded with vitamins and minerals thanks to one of the most nutritious greens on the planet – chard.
This smoothie follows the Fresh 5 template – a simple outline for truly healthy plant-based smoothies.
These smoothies will help you lose weight, boost energy and vitality, and keep your skin youthful and glowing!
This smoothie is full of rockstar ingredients! On top of the spinach and blueberries there’s chard, oats, and strawberries.
Chard is a leafy green that’s even more nutrient dense than spinach or kale!
Oats are an excellent source of fiber and protein.
Strawberries are low in calories, fat-free, and very high in vitamin C.
But the antioxidative properties of blueberries and spinach are the real stars of this show.
Benefits of a spinach blueberry smoothie
This spinach and blueberry smoothie may have a delectable blueberry muffin flavor, but don’t underestimate it!
It packs some serious health benefits thanks to its powerhouse ingredients.
When people think of healthy veggies, spinach is one of the first that comes to mind. This smoothie won’t give you superhuman strength like our favorite spinach eating cartoon Popeye might suggest, but spinach really is super.
Spinach is a great source of vitamins and minerals and is rich in fiber, but spinach is also packed with antioxidants.
The antioxidants found in spinach are particularly useful for regulating the oxidative stresses caused from a diet high in fat and cholesterol (most Western diets). 
Fresh Tip: Spinach has a subtle flavor that is easily overpowered by fruit. You can hide spinach in almost any smoothie, making it the perfect leafy green to boost your kid’s smoothies with!
Blueberries are also renowned for their antioxidants with one the highest antioxidant contents among commonly consumed foods.
The antioxidants found in blueberries are known as anthocyanins, a type of flavonol. Studies found anthocyanins to have powerful disease protective properties and have been shown to improve brain health. 
Smoothies can be incredibly healthy, but the reason they’re my favorite is because they’re sooo easy.
If you have a high powered blender it’s as easy as washing the fresh produce, tossing everything in the blender, and pressing a button!
If you don’t have a high powered blender, try blending just the leafy greens and liquid first. This will help to liquefy your greens to the best of your blender’s capabilities!
Want to take this smoothie to the next level?
Try adding some superfood boosts. They’re optional in all my smoothie recipes, but I absolutely love their added health benefits!
You can even tailor the boosts to your specific health needs like turmeric for autoimmune disease and inflammation, or matcha for weight loss and energy!
For more info, check out this guide on using superfoods in smoothies. It covers the health benefits of each ‘superfood’ and the flavors they blend well with.
Acai is a delicious berry with up to 10x the antioxidants of blueberries and cacao is one of the highest known food sources of antioxidants (up to 40x more than blueberries) among many other benefits!
I find myself reaching for this smoothie as a filling breakfast on mornings that I’m in a rush. It’s just so nutritious and easy!
It’s also great as a healthy dessert thanks to its sweet blueberry muffin flavor, especially if you add the cacao powder!
