If you’re looking for a healthy berry smoothie with spinach, then you’re going to love this one! It’s become one of our go-to healthy breakfast smoothies over the last few months. If you’re brand new to drinking green smoothies, then this is a perfect one to start with. You really can hardly taste the spinach thanks to the berries and avocado!

Ingredients for the Best Berry Spinach Smoothie

After several tries, my wife and I perfected our spinach berry smoothie! You’ll need six ingredients and most of them you’ve probably got on hand. If you don’t have any, we’ve included some variations in the next section if you need a substitute or want to jazz it up!

  • Spinach – Spinach is one of the most popular vegetables for smoothies and for good reason! It blends incredibly easy, has almost no bitter flavor, and is loaded with Vitamin K, A, fiber, and folic acid. We have a whole list of spinach smoothies for weight loss if you want more ideas!
  • Mixed berries (or just blueberries!) – You can use any berries for this smoothie, but blueberries are our favorite! I absolutely love using blueberries in smoothies because they are low in sugar, lower GI, and loaded with antioxidants. If you’re making low sugar smoothies, berries are essential. 
  • Avocado – Avocado is one of the best ingredients for green smoothies because it helps make smoothies more filling. It’s the perfect complement to spinach and other greens to help make smoothies smoother and not bitter. 
  • Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla) – Greek yogurt is 100% the best way to add protein to smoothies!  
  • Almond milk – Almond milk is one of the best milks for smoothies! If you want to make creamier smoothies that are smooth and rich – almond milk is one of our favorites, which is why we have a whole list of almond milk smoothies!
  • Chia seeds – Chia seeds are one of the best ways to make high fiber smoothies! Just one tablespoon will add 5.6g of fiber to your smoothie. It’s also a great way to make smoothies thicker

Variations to this Recipe

I really wanted to make this berry spinach smoothie as healthy and delicious as possible! But it’s tough getting it down to 300 calories. If you need some alternative ingredients or don’t mind adding a few calories, give some of these a try!

  1. Oat milk – We like almond milk for smoothies, but oat milk is great as well! Honestly, any kind of dairy free milk works well as the base liquid for smoothies.
  2. Nut butter – If you like peanut butter or other nut butters, you could definitely add it in! It would increase the overall calories, but add a great nuttiness and flavor to this berry spinach smoothie!
  3. Kale – If you don’t have any spinach on hand then kale is a good substitute. They have slightly different nutrient profiles, but it’s one of the healthiest greens for smoothies you can use! You can also check out our list of kale smoothies for weight loss!
  4. Oats – If you aren’t afraid of the carbs, adding in some oats would be a great way to load up this smoothie. If you’re drinking this one pre or post workout, I’d recommend the oats for some extra carbs!
  5. Hemp seeds – Hemp seeds are a fantastic source of protein! They actually have more than chia seeds (5g vs 6g per tbsp). Adding a serving of hemp seeds would push this smoothie up to 19 g of protein per serving to this spinach and blueberry smoothie!

4 Tips for Making The Best Blueberry Spinach Smoothie

My wife and I have been making smoothies 4-5 days a week for the last few years! We’ve made hundreds of smoothies and we’ve perfected them. Over the last year, we’ve written 150+ articles all about smoothies. 

Here are four quick tips to help you make the best berry spinach smoothie possible:

  1. Blend the greens first – Our #1 tip for making great green smoothies is to blend your spinach by itself with your liquid base. This is the best way to make sure you don’t get any stringy bits of greens. Once it’s blended into green juice, add the rest of your ingredients in! 
  2. Use a high powered blender – Using a strong blender is essential to making great smoothies! We’ve done tons of blender reviews, but our favorite blender for green smoothies is the Vitamix E310
  3. Make them in advance – If you want to drink smoothies every day it can be a hassle to make them fresh. Make a big batch on Monday morning and store leftover smoothies in the fridge for the week! It’s also easy to store smoothies in the freezer!
  4. Pour milk in slowly – The best way to get the right texture is to use the right amount of liquid in your smoothie. The amount of liquid needed changes depending on the size and shape of your blender so it’s a bit tricky to tell you exactly how much to use. Use just one cup to get your spinach blended (tip #1) and then slowly drip in however much you need to get the consistency you like!
