I make a green smoothie almost every single day.  As a busy and active mom, it is almost impossible to get in all of the fruits and veggies that my body is needing.   We recently started a nutrition challenge at our gym and it required to get all 3 servings of veggies in.  This is why green smoothies are my BFF.

I just got my hands on a Blendtec blender and I don’t know how I have lived without it.  It has so much power and had no troubles giving me a perfectly blended smoothie.  This thing is so high tech I can see why it is the world’s most advanced blender!  It has this awesome LED touch screen and do you want to know one of my favorite parts about it?  It has a self clean option so that as soon as you are done using it, you add some hot water and a couple of drops of soap.   You push the clean button and let it do all of the work!

Since I am always making smoothies so I am always thinking of new ways to make them.  I love the blackberry lime combo and decided to put it all together in a smoothie.  I am always adding spinach because it is the perfect way to sneak your serving of veggies in without even knowing it.

The flavor is amazing and this smoothie is so quick and easy!  The blackberries add antioxidants and vitamins and I love to add chia seeds to get those benefits as well.   This smoothie comes together perfectly and you guys are going to love it as much as we did!

Be prepared for many delicious smoothies on the blog because I am pretty obsessed with my new Blendtec!

  1. This goo stuck to the top of my palate, so I suggest using skim milk instead of the almond milk. Spinach is cool, but blend in kale for a healthier-better combo and ground flax seed should replace the chia.
