Ingredients for making a superfood smoothie.

Recipe Ingredients

Avocado and almond-coconut milk add loads of natural creaminess to every sip. Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the post for exact amounts.

  • Blueberries – Use fresh or frozen.
  • Spinach – Go for baby spinach. Regular spinach works too if you chop off the stems.
  • Almond-coconut milk – You can also use just almond, coconut, or oat milk.
  • Avocado – This is a great opportunity to use up avocados that have started to brown.
  • Chia seeds – Flax seeds add a similar crunch.
  • Cinnamon – Feel free to use ground nutmeg.
  • Honey – You can also use maple syrup or agave nectar.
  • Protein powder – Vanilla and chocolate both work.
  • Ice – Crushed ice is best.

How To Make A Blueberry Superfood Smoothie

There’s no excuse for mixing breakfast, especially with this smoothie only requiring 5 minutes. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the full recipe card.

  • Fill it. Place all of the ingredients in the blender, adding the spinach and protein powder last for easy blending.
  • Blend it. Process everything until smooth. Serve and enjoy!

Tips & Variations

Even if you’re out of ice or want to add creamy almond butter, there’s a version of this easy superfood smoothie for you.

  • Make it fruitier. Frozen berries, ripe bananas, and diced mangos will give you a fruitier sip.
  • More protein. Add 1/2 block of soft tofu or 1-2 tablespoons almond butter to the blender for extra plant-based protein.
  • Skip the ice. As long as the blueberries are frozen, and the avocado, milk, and spinach are cold, you don’t really need ice for this smoothie.
  • Prep freezer-packs. Except for the coconut milk and honey, add all of the ingredients to a small freezer bag. Keep it in the freezer for last-minute breakfasts. Add the milk and honey before blending.
  • Make it chocolatey. Stir 1/2-1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder for a chocolatey smoothie. You can also top the drink with mini chocolate chips.
  • More add-ins. Add 2 tablespoons shredded coconut, quick oats, or freeze-fried strawberries for extra texture.

Serving Suggestions

This creamy superfood smoothie is a great part of any breakfast. Pair it with some Protein Pancakes, Chocolate Buckwheat Pancakes, or Protein Pop Tarts for something sweet. Try it with my Egg White Bites or Avocado Toast with Egg for something savory.

Can I Make This In Advance?

Of course! Prepare it up to 3 days in advance and refrigerate it until ready to serve. The mixture might separate but you can stir it until smooth again.
