A fruit smoothie is a delicious and healthy way to start your day.

Or a great nutritious afternoon snack.

Adding superfoods is a great way make a fruit smoothie even better.

What is a super food?

Superfoods such as spinach, beans, sweet potatoes, salmon, fruits, nuts, whole grains and berries — are said to be rich in nutrients.

Some superfoods are better than others to add to a smoothie.

Here are some of my favorite smoothie superfoods.

Greek Yogurt
Thick and creamy and high in protein & probiotics.

Blueberries
Filled with fiber, vitamin C.

Kale (just a little it has a strong taste)
Lots of antioxidantst's also a fantastic source of fiber, calcium, and iron.

Chia seeds
Loaded with the most essential fatty acids of any known plant! Plus, one serving of the stuff is loaded with magnesium, iron, calcium, and potassium.

Oatmeal
High in fiber, antioxidants, and tons of other nutrients.

Strawberries
Vitamin C is the superstar of this superfood. Just one cup satisfies the daily requirement for vitamin C

Watermelon
Low in sugar and high in vitamins A and C, this summer treat is the prefect addition to a superfood smoothie

Spinach
Just one cup of the stuff packs up to 12 percent of the recommended daily dose of calcium and enough vitamin K to help prevent bone loss .

Ginger
Slightly spicy but so tasty

Pumpkin
Loaded with antioxidants and vitamins
and my favorite for flavor for autumn.

Apple
With lots of fiber apples are a great low-calorie source. (A medium-sized apple weighs in at under 100 calories.)

Cranberries  (another of my favorites)
You can feeeze these fall favorites and use them year-round.

Carrots
Contain large amounts of vitamin A.

There are more superfoods like blackberries, raspberries, papaya, pineapple, Coconut oil, avocadodark chocolate, spirulina, orange, mango, kiwi, pomegranate seeds, bananas and more.

So many healthy option.

I like to full my Vita Mix with fruits with a big handful of spinach, than add almond milk and Greek yogurt.

I don't usually add anything to sweeten if but if I over do the Kale or spinach I sometimes add a little local honey

Blend it all up with some ice and I have a healthy superfood smoothie that my entire family will enjoy.

Freeze it in silicone molds and make superfood popsicles for your kids.

Do you make fruit smoothies? Do you add any superfoods?
