In these last couple of weeks I’ve been trying to find anyway to get my nutrients. The quarantine is making it a little difficult for me to go and get my fresh fruits and veggies. I try to limit my grocery store visits and find foods that are healthy with a decent shelf life. I’ve been using this spinach avocado smoothie recipe to get some of the nutrients I need. It has a good source of omega- 3’s, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Not to mention you can freeze all the ingredients in this recipe. Give this one a try because it’s a keeper!
- Avocado- Super food loaded with heart healthy fatty acids. They are loaded with fiber, potassium, Vitamin K, E, B5, B6, and much more! They may even lower cholesterol and reduce arthritis.
- Spinach- Is low in calories and high in fiber. It is full of Vitamin A, C, K1, Folic acid, iron, and calcium.
Don’t forget if you sign up for my email team, you’ll get a free at home workout designed by me! Happy quarantining!
Spinach Avocado Smoothie Recipe
1-2 cups spinach
1/2 an avocado
1 frozen banana
2 tbsp flax seeds
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I used Chobani vanilla)
1 cup water or more to taste
Add all these ingredients to a blender and mix until smooth. I use a frozen banana, because I like my smoothies cold. If you don’t have a frozen banana, you can just use what you have and put ice in instead. I used my Nutribullet to make this smoothie and I LOVE it. It is so portable and easy to store. It makes blending up my smoothies a breeze and it’s so easy to clean. If you’re someone that makes a lot of smoothies, you HAVE to purchase a Nutribullet.
Simply Grace hopes you enjoy this healthy spinach avocado smoothie recipe!
