Very Berry "Green" Smoothie

Very Berry "Green" Smoothie

Even though this smoothie has 2 cups of spinach, it is not green!  I used Costo brand frozen mixed berries.  They are fabulous! I am very pleased with most Costco products.  This makes a huge blender full, so you can either divide it into two servings or have half for breakfast and half for a snack later in the day. This is a great smoothie to win over skeptics.  You really can't see or taste the spinach at all!

  • 1 cup soy kefir, yogurt or milk of choice 
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries 
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • stevia, nutmeg and cinnamon to taste
  • several drops vanilla extract

  1. Yay! This is very similar to the recipe I use to successfully get loads of greens into my teenage son. I am going to try making him one of *your* smoothie recipes and see if that makes him even more addicted. As it is, the first thing he says when he wakes up in the morning is, "Mom. Smoothie. Now."
