Strawberry Spinach Smoothie Recipe
In reality, I hate snow. It’s cold and wet and slippery and not at all enjoyable unless I enjoy skiing, sledding or snowboarding, which I don’t. In the summer, there are tons of things I do outside to stay active. In the winter I’m limited but I’ve decided that learning how to be active in the winter is important for my overall health.
If you’re one of those people who love being outside participating in winter sports, you have already figured out a way to be active in the winter that works for you. For those of us, who don’t enjoy being outside in the winter, there are other ways to stay active. And, when you’re done, reward yourself with a Strawberry Spinach Smoothie!
Be active in the winter
Learning how to be active in the winter is one step toward a healthier you. I’m also making other changes in my life to be as healthy as possible. Aging has brought on some concerns (like arthritis) that I’ve never had to deal with before so I know I need to start being proactive in taking care of myself.
I’m trying to be more aware of remembering my vitamins and supplements and I’m making a conscious effort to eat more vegetables because I know I’m not getting the recommended amount.
Why a strawberry spinach smoothie?
It’s an easy way to get more calcium. All of these supplements are calcium PLUS Vitamin D. You have to have Vitamin D along with the calcium because your body needs it to absorb calcium. My personal favorite is the caramel. It has a smooth, creamy taste and is much easier for me to take than a huge calcium pill.

Is it OK to put raw spinach in a smoothie?
Yes, it’s absolutely fine to put raw spinach in a smoothie. In fact, raw spinach is packed with vital nutrients like fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, and calcium, making it a wonderful addition to your smoothies.
It blends well and adds a vibrant green color to your drink, all while subtly enhancing its nutritional profile. Just make sure to wash the leaves thoroughly before use to remove any residual dirt or pesticides.
Strawberry Spinach Smoothie
As far as the vegetables go, I’ve found that drinking a smoothie is a much more enjoyable way for me to get my daily serving of vegetables. I’ve been enjoying this Green Smoothie recipe and thought I’d share.
It’s fairly versatile because you can use coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, or dairy milk. You could probably even use rice milk if you enjoy it. To keep it paleo, choose unsweetened coconut or almond milk. If you share my dislike of kale, you’ll be pleased to learn that this is a green smoothie without kale.

Is it good to put spinach in smoothies?
Yes! They blend up well and have a neutral taste that blends well with other things you’ll want to add like strawberries. And, they make your smoothie a fun green color. Of course, it’s also rich in vitamins and antioxidants.
Now that you’ve learned how to be active in the winter and make an easy spinach smoothie, I hope you’ll try a few of my tips.
