  • 1 1/4 -1 1/2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup açaí juice
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/2 large carrot, or 4-5 baby carrots

Notes

For the açaí juice, you can buy it near the produce section in most grocery stores. 
Use frozen blueberries and bananas to achieve a cold smoothie effect. If you don't use any frozen fruits or veggies in the smoothie add a few ice cubes to make it cold.
Can use kale (stems removed) in place of the spinach.
FAQ
  • Can I substitute a different juice for the açaí? Yes. Any juice variety will work. Pomegranate juice or a vegetable packed juice would be delicious.
  • Can I make the smoothie without chia seeds? Of course!
  • I don't have chia seeds, what can I replace them with? Look for another healthy food item such as almonds, hemp hearts, or flax seed, or eliminate altogether.
  • Can I add protein powder? Yes.
