Strawberry Spinach Smoothie Recipe – Video Tutorial

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

This strawberry spinach smoothie is love at first sip. It is ridiculously easy to make and is packed with all-natural, healthy ingredients making this the perfect snack!

Juicing has its place but what I love about smoothies is you retain the fiber from your fruits and veggies which is so important for your digestive health (Don’t worry, I won’t go into more detail than that, although I could since I am a Nurse which means I am NOT shy about this topic. I can be eating a snickers while discussing issues of the digestive system)… sorry. Now I’ve done it. Really sorry.

I know it may be a difficult transition for some of you but lets get back to the recipe. You can make this smoothie without the spinach if you like, but I’ll have you know it doesn’t change the flavor much to add it. Spinach will just make your smoothie healthier. It’s a great way to sneak in veggies for kids who otherwise won’t eat them. Thanks for all of your awesome smoothie suggestions on Instagram. Because of you, we discovered this strawberry spinach smoothie.

    Great recipe, but a little grammar correction: “Juicing has it’s place” says “Juicing has it is place” which does not make sense, because it’s = it is. What you want here is the possessive pronoun its, which has NO apostrophe. Possessive pronouns do not use apostrophes: his, hers ours, its, theirs. Reply

    I want to make a couple smoothies ahead of time. Do you think I could freeze them? Or how long do you think I could keep them in the fridge? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      November 23, 2015

      I wouldn’t blend smoothies ahead of time since the texture can get weird and separate from sitting in the fridge, especially if there is dairy (yogurt) in the smoothie. You can make freezer bags of the fruit and spinach and then add the liquid part and blend before serving. Reply

    Natasha! This smoothie is definitely my favorite! It even beats my favorite “Peach Pleasure” from Jamba Juice 🙂 I tried this smoothie for the first time at my sister’s house, and I instantly loved it! drank a full tall glass in one sitting. I told my mom about this smoothie several times, so yesterday she bought all ingredients, so I could make it at home… guess what? My mom who’s a really good cook and baker, and kind of picky with taste, tried it, and said, “Ah Vkusno!” 🙂
    Anyway, Thank you for sharing this recipe!!! Reply

    Do you consider this is a good foundation to start with?
    I would be extremely thankful if I could ask you some questions through email so I
    can learn a bit more prior to getting started. When you have some free time, please make sure to contact me. Thanks a lot Reply

    I tried this smoothie, and it was delicious!! I made it before I went and worked out, and my trainer was pleased to hear I had consumed it. Being a nutrition graduate, I didn’t see the nutritional information, such as carbs, sugar, etc. Can you post it? Yes, I can add up the info for myself, but others might want to know.

    Thanks. Reply

    Hi. Off course after reading all of the comments I decided to throw in my 2 coins =) We owed Vitamix for 5 yrs now and it blends like no other machine out there. I even make my crepe batter in it, let it sit for 30 min until bubbles go away and done. No clumps no mess… ready in minutes. Love your smoothie idea! Reply

        🙂 Reply

  • LOL. I’m with you girls. I don’t have Vitamix or Ninja either. I use $40 Oster blender from Costco, add water/coconut water and tons of veggies to my smoothies. Healthier that way. They taste amazing! I can’t dish out $400-500 for a blender. Just not me.:)
    On the other note, I agree Natasha, I prefer smoothies to juices because of the fiber content. Green smoothies are the way to go if you want to be healthy. You are what you eat! Reply

    I am so trying this one! I have been lately into juices since we just bought a centrifugal juicer at home. It is such a nice gadget to have! And you can make juice out of almost anything! There is a fantastic book out there called “500 smoothies and juices”. I totally reccomend it! It has so many brilliant and fun recipes both for smoothies and juices. Reply

      Is your juicer a masticating juicer (chews the food in a way)? I’ve been looking into juicers too! Reply

    Girl, thank you for another great recipe) you look great! I like your new hair style:)
    In my opinion, those pieces are so much fun to have in your smoothie) its like eating fruit without chewing it:-) but still tasting tiny pieces of the fruit) I think its great!
    It’s all about nutrients that we get from the smoothie!!! Reply

    We have the ninja blender and it seems to work just fine. The vitamix is better of course. My parents have one. But the ninja is good for the price. We dont have those black pieces and the texture is smooth. Reply

    If you want healthy, skip the dairy. I use closer to 3 packed cups of spinach in mine and add fresh or frozen mango instead of the juice, and use water for the liquid. I had the same reaction as Moms dish when I saw your pic 🙂 Definately not a vitamix smoothie Reply

  • Lana
    May 27, 2013

    We had a ninja and made smoothies on it but kept hearing great stuff about the vitamix so my husband decided to try it so we returned the ninja at Costco and bought the vitamix. Yes it’s very expensive but no regrets. Total difference in smoothies. The vitamix is a great investment. Reply

      did you get yours from Costco? I wonder how it compares to the Ninja blender (I know that one is quite a bit cheaper and my sister seems to love it). I believe you. I guess I’m not sure I want to dish out that much for a blender… Reply

        We normally don’t give bday gifts for eachother.. we really have everything we need but for my birthday my husvand did buy me the vitamix. We love it. Ninja doesnt blend as well.. this is from Costco presentation. I also make soups, salsa and desserts with the vitamix: like cheesecake. Try it out. If you dont like it, you can always return it at Costco. Reply

            At Costco they do. It’s usually 30-50$ off. I believe once tgey were $75 off. We certainly missed it. We actually miss all sales everywhere
            Lol. It also comes with a neat recipe book. Use it often! Let us know if you decide to give it a try. 🙂

        I got my at Costco and I told my husband lets test it, we can return and get Ninja if we decide its not worth our money.
        We love Jumba Juice so this was an investment for us because smoothies we made were just like at Jumba.
        I use it for many things, I dont have food processor so many chopping i do in vitamix. Reply

        • May 27, 2013

          Also you wouldn’t need to use so much juice and liquids, its powerful to blend it up easy. less juice is less calories and sugar for us. 😉 Reply
