Today was one of those days where I was in and out of the house running from one place to the next. So, with just 10 minutes at home around lunchtime, I whipped together this nutritious raspberry spinach smoothie. With the high fiber, iron and protein it always keeps me full and I don’t feel like I missed anything.
This well balanced, nutritious raspberry spinach smoothie is not only good for you, it tastes amazing too.
- 1 cup spinach
- ½ cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tsp hemp seeds (or ground flax)
*If you prefer your smoothies more sweet add ¼ banana
Blend until smooth.
Makes 1 smoothie
Did you know?!
Raspberries have WAY more fiber than other berries? With 8 grams of fiber per cup they beat the poor blueberry at 3.6 grams of fiber per cup and the strawberry at 2.9 grams of fiber per cup.
Greek yogurt is packed with vitamins and nutrients. Check out the nutritional details here. With 12 to 17.3 grams of protein (depending on the brand) it’s a great energy source – with even more protein than milk.
Spinach is packed with nutrients and an excellent source of protein, folate, vitamin A and K. It also has over 6 mg of iron (highest iron out of all non-animal iron sources). Please keep in mind though! You’ll want to choose organic spinach, as non-organic spinach is one of the most 12 contaminated foods with over 50 pesticides. Scary, right?!
