Spinach is a favorite for smoothies because its texture and taste are so much easier to hide than kale, and it allows the bright flavors of your raw fruits to shine through.



  • 1 cup Steamed Spinach
  • 1 cup frozen sour cherries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 medium banana
  • 1 scoops Whey Protein Powder, Vanilla
  • 3/4 cup Almond Milk, Original


1 Blend all the ingredients in a blender on "HIGH" until creamy, or the desired consistency.
2 *I used frozen banana in this recipe.
3 ** Raw spinach is high in oxalic acid, which can be hard on your kidneys. It’s also a goitrogen, meaning that (when raw) it can disrupt your thyroid function. A quick steam lowers both the oxalic acid and the goitrogens, meaning you can still have a yummy smoothie full of its benefits! Keep steamed spinach on hand if you enjoy it in smoothies regularly. It will keep in the fridge for several days.
