Is it Ok to Drink a Blueberry Spinach Smoothie Everyday?
While commercial smoothies contain a lot of sugar which can lead to unhealthy weight and diabetes, this homemade blueberry and spinach smoothie is healthy. It doesn’t have unnecessary sugar added and is made from all-natural ingredients. Spinach provides protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals that promote blood glucose control, improve bone health, and lower the risk of cancer. Blueberries contain high levels of antioxidants and vitamins. These berries promote skin health, bone strength, and help manage diabetes.
Can you make your Smoothie ahead of time?
Yes, you can! If you know you won’t have time to prepare anything during the morning, you can make your smoothie in advance and store them in the fridge overnight, and will be good to drink when you wake up. It will be good for 48 hours but it is recommended drinking it within 24 hours to keep optimal taste and nutrition.
Blueberry Spinach Smoothie FAQ
Smoothies and shakes can be a GREAT on-the-go breakfast and snack, but some of them don’t fill us up and keep those hunger pangs at bay. If you want a smoothie to fill you up and keep you full, adding healthy fats will do the trick. In this recipe, I added avocado and it makes all the difference!
Adding spinach to your shakes and smoothies is a great way to add those nutrients into your food in a more discrete way, because the taste is very mild! In a smoothie, when you add a handful or two of spinach, the taste will likely be overpowered by the fruits you add!
Smoothies can be great for weight loss if you add healthy fats. If you are replacing a meal with a smoothie, make sure it has enough to keep you full and meet your body’s needs. The avocado in this smoothie is a great way to make sure it’s enough!
