I admit to being a mildly guilty couch potato who runs screaming from anything that contains greens, so I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious this blueberry spinach smoothie tastes. As my mom was eating a chicken sandwich, I asked her to try a bit of my smoothie. She gave me a skeptical glance but complied, and I had the wonderful opportunity to see a light come into her eyes as she told me, "That's good!" I can't promise to not keep eating fattening foods, but I will try to incorporate this healthy alternative.

I drank this smoothie for breakfast and felt good all day! It only takes 5 minutes to make and you'll have a smoothie that's full of nutrients. Aside from tasting great, it has a lovely, visually appealing color. The date didn't break down very well in the blender. Perhaps it will break down in a Vitamix, but it didn't in my KItchenAid. I suggest chopping it into small dice before placing it in the blender.

This blueberry spinach smoothie is quick and delicious. I used almond milk, which added a subtle nutty flavor. The date and the fruit added just enough sweetness without being too sweet and the spinach just blended right in with the other flavors. If you have a really dry date, I suggest soaking it in the almond milk overnight in the fridge, which will help it blend into the smoothie more completely.
