Spinach Smoothie

I love that my Vita-Mix allows me to add lots of healthy foods into smoothies and they still taste like a dessert!

This Spinach Smoothie was a big hit with the kids.

  • 1 apple
  • 1 pear
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 10 baby carrots
  • 1/4 beet
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • splash of milk


  1. YUM! I love making fruit and veggie smoothies and just improvising with whatever ingredients I have at home. It’s much more fun when you don’t have to follow the recipe exactly!

  2. Made this tonight and it was good! Didn’t have a beet, so the color was a little brown, but other than that, tasty and healthy.

  3. I’ll try this. I usually put celery in fruit smoothies which adds a bit of water when blended in my VitaMix. Right now, I’m making lots of cranberry smoothies for my husband who has a UTI. 🙁 He loves them and says they help!

  4. Yum! This looks delicious. Love the idea of sneaking veggies into a fruit smoothie.

    Thank you!

    This recipe looks good, can’t wait to try it once I move to phase 2 (or 3, maybe) of the South Beach Diet. I make a lot of spinach/fruit smoothies, but I have never tried beets or carrots in it. I don’t have a VitaMix and my Cuisinart, while doing a pretty good job of blending the spinach these last few years, is starting to whine and protest a bit. Btw, my daycare kids LOVE green smoothies! My own kids (10, 14, 16), not so much 🙂

  7. We are big green smoothie lovers here too. I don’t really have a recipe I just add whatever I have on hand. Although I prefer tropical fruits in my green smoothies. I do not use yogurt though. Just fruits, spinach (or other green(s)) and a tablespoon of water to get it churning.

  8. will this work in a regular blender? any suggestions?


  1. […] Salads, fruits, shakes, smoothies and more!  I think I might even be brave enough to try these Spinach Smoothies this summer!  Toni’s recipe does sound super tempting!  This Fresh Fruit Bowl salad […]
