Superfoods, you’ve all heard of them, right? Want to know a little secret? Turns out ‘superfood’ isn’t really a thing. It’s more of a marketing exercise. Now, before you throw out your leafy greens and berries for lying to you, let’s readdress this. While there’s no scientific evidence for a type of food being a superfood, there are absolutely types of foods that have immense nutritional properties. So they’re absolutely worth your time and investment.

Today we’re focusing on spinach and kale and how they can significantly uplift your health. More specifically, when blended into delicious smoothies, these nutrient-loaded greens pack your smoothie with the vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants that your body is crying out for.

To make a delicious spinach and kale smoothie, try blending 2 cups of fresh spinach, 1 cup of almond milk, 1 leaf of kale, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds for added protein and energy. You can also add a sliced frozen banana for a creamy texture.

Tips for Creating Better Smoothies

Q: How can I make my smoothies creamier?

A: You could always use frozen bananas or avocados. Both add a rich, creamy texture without overwhelming other flavors. Alternatively, a scoop of Greek yogurt or a splash of coconut milk can work wonders.

Q: What's the secret to a perfectly smooth texture?

A: Start by blending your leafy greens with your liquid base first to ensure they're thoroughly processed. Once smooth, add the rest of your ingredients.

Q: How can I enhance the flavor of my smoothie without adding sugar?

A: Ripe fruits are naturally sweet but you can always try a spoonful of honey. Also, spices like cinnamon, vanilla extract, or a bit of fresh ginger can add a lot of flavors without extra sugar.

Q: My smoothies are always too warm. How can I make them colder?

A: If your blender is like the MiiXR X7 and up to the task, use frozen fruits or vegetables to chill your smoothie without diluting it like ice would. Alternatively, you can just use ice. If you prefer that texture and consistency, then go for it!

Q: What's a good trick for a nutrient boost without changing the flavor too much?

A: Add a handful of spinach or kale - both blend well without overpowering other flavors. For a non- vegetable boost, try a tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseed for added fiber and omega-3s.

These tips should help you elevate your smoothie game, making them not just tastier but healthier too.
