Blueberry Spinach Smoothie Ingredients

The number one ingredient in this smoothie is of course blueberries, with spinach being a close second.

I also add a banana (my second-most favorite smoothie ingredient) for a bit more sweetness.

Blueberry Spinach Smoothie:

  • 1 large cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 leaf fresh mint (optional)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (optional)
  • 1 tbsp fresh minced ginger (optional)
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds (optional)

Smoothie Add-Ons

As you can see, there are a few optional ingredients that you can experiment with, to add more nutrients to an otherwise already nutritious drink.

Whenever I prepare a smoothie, I always consider adding extra ingredients to maximize the nutritional value of the smoothie, without sacrificing on the taste too much.

Some of my favorite smoothie add-on ingredients are ginger, lemon, mint and chia seeds. Experimenting with these extra ingredients is important because they can have a big impact on flavor and texture.

Spinach in bowl

In this particular bluebery spinach smoothie recipe, I do like to add a bit of ginger, lemon and mint, just to create that extra zing, while also enjoying the powerful health benefits they offer.

It’s crucial though to not add too much, otherwise the smoothie will lose the flavors of its core ingredients, blueberry and spinach.


If you need a bit of a push in the morning to get you energized and to get ready for the day, then this blueberry spinach smoothie is yours to try.

The idea behind this smoothie recipe is to make the most of the nutritional benefits that blueberries offer.

And because they also taste delicious, they always work really well in smoothies when mixed with other fruits and vegetables.

Blueberries in bowl

Blueberries are particularly rich in anthocyanin, a flavonoid with potent antioxidant capacity which can help us protect against age-related illnesses.

While this smoothie will taste great at any time of day, I particularly love drinking it first thing in the morning. It’s just delicious, and it gives me the energy I need.

Yes, I do absolutely love my good-old coffee in the morning, but this smoothie with all the right flavors and nutrients is an excellent substitute!
