Seven Spinach Smoothie Recipes to Help You Lose Weight

Seven Spinach Smoothie Recipes for Spring

It’s Spring! And for many of us that means a renewed effort to get healthy in time for summer! One great way to do that is to take in as many nutrients as possible. And while chomping on carrot sticks appeals to some, I prefer to drink my fruit and veg in the form of delicious smoothies. And since I’m quite severely anemic, I like to include spinach in as many recipes as possible. So I thought I’d share seven of my very favorite spinach smoothie recipes that are easy to make, delicious and totally good for you!

The best ratio for a a healthy spinach smoothie is 40% spinach or other leafy green (I suggest kale) to 60% fruit.

Spinach is a super food as it carries health benefits of  vitamins A (as beta-carotene), C, K, and folate, calcium, dietary fiber,  and iron. Spinach also carries selenium, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, copper, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and E.

Spinach also protects against certain cancers of the stomach, skin, breast, prostate, ovaries and colon.  It helps maintain cardiovascular health. It’s vital in the prevention of  heart attacks and stroke. And it can help diseases like asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. It really IS a super food!

Here are the recipes that will help you reap the health benefits of this awesome food.
