Spinach Prune Smoothie

This spinach prune smoothie has banana, chia seeds, lots of spinach and prunes in it for a super healthy, but tasty snack.

This is what my husband came home from Sam’s Club with the other day.

The World's Healthiest Smoothie
3.1 lbs of prunes.

Prunes

When he walked in the door I wanted to ask him if everything was ok in the bathroom department upon seeing this bag.

Turns out however, he just likes prunes for “snacking.” I’m pretty sure I could’ve found about a million other oversized bags of “snacking food” in Sam’s Club before picking prunes but, I guess I should just be happy they’re at least a healthy option.

In an attempt to start and put a dent in this bag I experimented with a spinach, banana and prune concoction. Alternatively titled, The World’s Healthiest Smoothie.

I’m not even going to attempt to dismiss the fact that spinach and prunes are probably two of the most hated “health” foods by the general population. Nor am I going to tell you “oh, you can’t taste the spinach” because here’s the thing about green monsters, to me they always taste “healthy.”

Yeah, you can mask some of the spinach taste with banana and other add-ins but there’s no comparing these smoothies to an all fruit one or something from Jamba Juice. Let’s call a spade a spade, they are a great way to get in some added greens + fruit but, they taste “healthy.”

So, I’m not promising some delicious dessert-y tasting smoothie where you somehow miraculously can’t taste the ingredients that go into it but, it is a pretty damn good tasting “healthy” one.

Who knew spinach + prunes could be such a good combo?

Has anyone had success with this one keeping them regular? I prefer to keep regular naturally, having heArtburn issues lately and doc thinks slow digestion might be causing it. I hate medication ! ????

Awesome awesome recipe. I altered it bit - I don't like ice in my smoothies, so I left that out. I used fat-free drinking yoghurt instead of the milk and ground flaxseed instead of chia. The taste is so unexpected and so yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

I have been making a variation of this smoothie for years. If u are going for pure weight loss benefits then u should take out the almond milk and agave. Number one almond milk will not make your smoothie taste any better and will add calories. Replace almond milk with either a small amount of plain nonfat yogurt an the. Sub the agave with a little dry strawberry banana crystal lite powder (tons of flavor zero extra calories) the yogurts has lots of protein and good cultures for your immune system. If u don't want to go the. Crystal life route the. Danon lite and fit vanilla yogurt is really tasty and only like 60 calories a cup

@Orange county custom surfboards, I use unsweetened almond milk and it is 50 calories for half a cup which is all I use. Roughly the same calories as my low-fat Greek yogurt.
