How to Make an Easy Dairy-Free Spinach Smoothie

by Lily Diaz

If you're anything like me, you want to incorporate fruits & veggies into your diet but don't know how. Here is an easy, dairy free recipe that's easily customizable to fit your own taste!

Supplies

  • 2 Cups Organic baby spinach
  • 2 Ounces 100% pomegranate juice (optional)
  • ½ Cups Water (can be substituted w/ orange juice)
  • 1 Cup Fresh or frozen fruit
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    I used a frozen mix of pineapple, mango, strawberries & peaches. I didn't use the orange, but I've seen many variations of this recipe using fresh squeezed or bottled OJ instead of water.

    Step 2

    Place frozen (or fresh) fruit in blender. Add pomegranate juice (or any fruit juice you prefer) and water. Now blend!

    Step 3

    Now add the main ingredient - spinach!

    Step 4

    It will take 1-2 minutes for the spinach to blend into the smoothie. Be patient! Also, make sure to taste a small amount first so you can make changes if you're not completely pleased.

    Step 5

    The finished product: an easy, fast, and healthy way to start my day! I was surprised to find that there is no taste of spinach whatsoever- just fruit!

    Step 6

    My picky 3 year old nephew liked it, and he even wanted more! I think I get an A+ for sneaking veggies into his breakfast!

    Step 7

    This was my first time trying this, so I kept it as simple as I could. What kind of variations have you tried? Leave your ideas in the comments please! (-:
