Apple Spinach Smoothie For Weight Loss
Smoothies are generally a good choice when trying to lose weight because they are highly nutritious, filling, and low in calories.
Just don’t be fooled by some of those all fruit, high-sugar smoothies out there.
But spinach smoothies take weight loss to a whole new level!
Spinach is a powerhouse vegetable.
One study that looked at the amount of nutrients per calories of various fruits and vegetables gave spinach a nutrient density score of 86.43. This was the 5th highest score out of the entire study! 
In addition to spinach’s powerful punch of essential vitamins and minerals, it is also very high in fiber.
Fiber is extremely important for gut health but it also reduces appetite and keeps us feeling full longer!
Its subtle flavor is also easily covered up by fruit – perfect for sneaking it into your kid’s smoothies!
Whether you want to lose weight, boost your energy, get youthful glowing skin, or just feel great, smoothies can help you achieve your health goals!
But you want to know my favorite part about smoothies?
They’re just so darn easy! Simply add the ingredients to your blender, push a button, and you’re done!
If you’re serious about smoothies and your health then I definitely recommend getting a high powered blender.
They can blend leafy greens like spinach or kale and even small chia seeds into a silky smooth liquid!
Before I upgraded to my refurbished Vitamix 5300, I was having to chew my smoothies because all the bits of greens and seeds (not to mention my smoothies were a lumpy uneven mess). Yuck!
Fresh Tip: Before spending money on an expensive high powered blender, try blending your leafy greens with just your liquid ingredient first. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. This should cut down on the green bits that you have to “chew” when drinking your smoothie!
Not only will a high powered blender produce a much better professional quality texture, they’re also much longer lasting! My Vitamix blender comes with a 7-year warranty!
Here’s an in-depth comparison of some of the best blenders if you’re interested in upgrading.
Blendtec and some of the high performance KitchenAid blenders are also worth looking into.
Smoothies are already packed with nutrition, but I like to take mine one step further and add superfood boosts!
Here’s a list of my 17 favorite superfoods for smoothies that details all the different health benefits and uses of each superfood.
Superfood powders and smoothies are a match made in heaven. The powders blend right in and the fruit from the smoothie covers up any undesirable tastes!
It’s the perfect way to take your health to the next level!
For this spinach apple smoothie I like to add moringa powder, but feel free to use any superfood boost you want!
Moringa is similar to spinach in that it’s high in nutrients and low in calories, but it’s also rich in antioxidants and has been shown to support weight loss. 
This refreshing and cleansing green smoothie is the perfect way to start your day!
Sweet tropical flavors from the kiwi, apple, and banana combined with highly nutritious spinach and cucumber for a delicious and nutritious smoothie.
Chia seeds add a punch of extra fiber and protein while the coconut water hydrates and replenishes electrolytes!

Spinach and Apple Smoothie:
- 1 cup Coconut Water
- 3 Kiwis, peeled
- 1/2 medium sized Cucumber
- 1 Green Apple, cored and quartered (I use Granny Smith apples)
- 1 cup Spinach
- 1 frozen Banana
- Add the ingredients to your blender in the order listed
- Blend on high until desired consistency
- Boost your smoothie with some added protein! I use a protein brand called Gainful. They create a personalized protein blend for your specific needs whether that’s weight loss, muscle gain, recovery or more. They also cater to a variety of dietary needs like vegan, gluten-free, keto, and various allergies. You can find out which protein blend is the perfect fit for you by taking the protein quiz!
- Use a frozen banana to keep the smoothie cold and creamy or add a handful of ice in step 1
- If your blender has trouble with leafy greens like spinach, try blending just the coconut water and spinach first before adding other ingredients. If you still have to chew bits of spinach in your smoothie then you might consider an upgraded blender. I use this one and absolutely love it!
