I’ve been really killing it with adding spinach to my smoothies. I feel pretty confident that I’ve finally figured it out. When I made this Raspberry Watermelon Spinach Smoothie, I was amazed at how well it turned out.

My main concern with mixing red fruit and spinach together was that it would turn into this ugly reddish brown color. To me, the color can be a bit off putting. But, I think combining the raspberry and watermelon created a rich color that looks super delicious.

And delicious it was! The sweetness from the watermelon and the tartness from the raspberry is what really made this smoothie enjoyable. But it was also extremely refreshing that I forgot spinach was even in it.

So why did I add watermelon? Truth is, it was about to go bad. I needed a way of eating the watermelon in bulk and blending it up into a smoothie seemed like the perfect way to go about using it. I’m sure the smoothie would have tasted just as fine without it. But, I think the watermelon is what really helped to kill down the bitter taste of the raspberry.

If you don’t want to use watermelon, give strawberries or cherries a try. Both are equally as sweet and rich in antioxidants. The downside, however, could be not choosing a sweet strawberry or cherry. You may end up with a tart tasting smoothie. But, you could always add honey if you need to sweeten it up a bit.
