Furthermore, making this fruity spinach drink in a blender is better and healthier than processing it in a juicer. The blender version retains all of the fiber and other nutrients. Additionally, the fruits and vegetables selection can be varied, however, the flavor will be slightly different.
For example, instead of spinach, organic baby kale can be substituted. Additional changes include using a Granny Smith apple instead of honey crisp. Overall, this nutritional spinach fruit smoothie is healthy as is. But it does lends itself to playing with the flavors.
Importantly, this nutrition spinach fruit smoothie results in a milder flavor than kale. Choosing kale as a substitute may require adding a sweetener, like honey and also using less kale. Typically, spinach is slightly lower in calories; one cup contains about 7 calories. Whereas, approximately 20 calories is in one cup kale. Despite, which one of these superfood green leafy vegetables you choose, the nutrition facts are similar. Kale does have a leg-up, however.
Instead of changing this baseline, nutritional spinach fruit smoothie, here are a few of our kale based smoothies that’s worth making. This Mango Kale Smoothie is a delight and the Citrusy Kale Smoothie is equally delicious.
