Healthy green smoothies may be all the rage, but it’s important to know not all smoothies are created equal. Truly healthy green smoothie recipes contain natural ingredients with vitamins, nutrients and hopefully some protein, and they don’t overdo it on the sugars. Around here we prefer spinach and kale smoothie recipes because they are loaded with iron and other nutrients that are unparalleled in their health benefits.
Kale keeps your brain sharp, keeps cancer at bay, keeps your eyes healthy, keeps your bones strong, and boosts your immune system. And spinach is loaded with calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese, vitamin C, vitamin B, Vitamin E, vitamin K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, fiber, and folate. So if you want to keep your body and mind sharp, be sure that you’re getting your daily leafy greens.
The other great thing about these spinach and kale smoothie recipes is that the taste of the greens hides well when blended with other ingredients, taking on the stronger flavors. (As does avocado, by the way.) So it doesn’t actually feel like you are drinking spinach or kale.
Are you ready to get your smoothie on? Let’s do it, friends. Here are 25 healthy spinach and kale smoothie recipes for your taste buds’ enjoyment:

All of these can become gluten-free smoothie recipes, simply by purchasing gluten-free ingredients! Most of them don’t even contain ingredients with gluten. Beware of oats though. You can purchase gluten-free oats such as the ones from Bob’s Red Mill.
These healthy smoothie recipes can be made even healthier simply by purchasing organic and non-GMO ingredients, as these two vegetables are almost always on the “dirty dozen” list. If you’re going for healthy, consider seeking out products that are not grown using pesticides.
And if you happen to be looking for a new blender for making your smoothies, I highly recommend looking into getting a Blendtec or a Vitamix. Both brands are worthy investment pieces for your kitchen. We’ve had ours for many years and use them almost daily. These two brands have the industry’s most powerful motors and blades, providing the same commercial strength and quality you’d find in your favorite restaurant.
Not all smoothies are created equal. Don’t be fooled by desserts that are masking themselves as smoothies. Healthy green smoothie recipes are packed with vegetables and some fruit so you can get the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. Add some protein and don’t overdo it on the sugars! These spinach and kale smoothie recipes are packed with essential nutrients and rich in flavor too!
