Super Good, Superfood Smoothie

I know you're used to seeing more baked goods from me, but I can't live off of cupcakes - right? So today I'm sharing my easy superfood smoothie recipe with you! It's one that Jordan and I both enjoy drinking for breakfast, and sometimes even lunch because it's packed with protein, fiber and tons of vitamins! I also love that it's a paleo, gluten free and vegan smoothie so it's one that most people can have.

Used In This Post: 

Some of the key superfood ingredients in this smoothie are spinach, avocado and berries. Spinach is so good for us - probably everyone could benefit from eating more of it! It's good for skin, hair and bone health and is loaded with protein, iron, vitamins and minerals. Avocado is another really powerful superfood. We all probably know that avocado is full of healthy fats. But it's also a great source of fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin E and magnesium. Next up: blueberries! I love using frozen blueberries in this smoothie recipe because they're a pretty inexpensive berry when you buy them frozen (thank you Costco!). They are also stocked with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, properties and are high in Vitamin C and potassium.

For even more nutritional value, we love adding flax seeds and chia seeds to our smoothies. One thing that I LOVE about our Vitamix blender is that it's powerful enough to turn the seeds to powder. So you'd literally never know they were in there! 

Whip up one of these smoothies this week for breakfast or a post-workout nutrient boost!


1 cup almond milk (I love the organic Silk almond milk)
1 packed cup fresh spinach
1 cup frozen blueberries (or berry mix)
1/2 cup avocado (I like the frozen avocado at Costco)
1 tablespoon almond butter (We use Justins!)
1 teaspoon flax seeds
1 teaspoon chia seeds


Load all the ingredients into your Vitamix machine or other blender, and blend until smooth. Top with some fresh berries if you like, and enjoy!
