Dr. Joel Fuhrman is an American board-certified family physician who specializes in nutrition-based treatments for obesity and chronic disease. This is Dr. Fuhrman got greens EXTRA green smoothie recipe, so there’s NO QUESTION it’s a nutritious powerhouse!

We absolutely love the creamy rich texture (not to mention satiating healthy fat) the avocado provides.  The pineapple and kiwi and of course banana give Dr Fuhrman green smoothie such a tropical taste, you will wish you were drinking it on a warm beach somewhere. 

If kiwi is not in season, we recommend substituting with 1 cup of strawberries and the juice of one lime, which has tons of cleansing qualities as well. Don’t have a Blendtec or Vitamix blender? Not to fret, check out our tips on making green smoothies in a regular blender.

Kiwi fruits are rich in many Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C (more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene.

Spinach is a powerhouse of nutrition rich in many vitamins and nutrients. Experts have identified at least thirteen different compounds in spinach that provide antioxidant and/or anti-cancer benefits.

Spinach rich in calcium and magnesium, helps prevent osteoporosis. It is also an excellent source of iron, which is critical for women in menopause and for people who have anemia or chronic fatigue syndrome. Spinach contains vitamin E, which helps slow mental decline and memory loss.

  1. Is the recipe for Dr Fuhrman’s green smoothie one serving? It’s easy for me to drink it all however I’m wondering if I’m eating too much.

    1. Hi, Melissa! Great question! This smoothie is good for two cups. You’re definitely getting your daily serving of greens and veggies by drinking the entire serving. It’s not a bad thing either. If it’s too much to drink at once, save the other serving for later. Enjoy!

    Green Smoothies typically are a great option for diabetics. The insoluble fiber in the fruit & leafy greens will slow down the digestion of the natural sugars. You can try omitting some of the fruit and starting with less, and monitoring your blood sugar. Hope that helps! HAPPY BLENDING!

  3. 4 stars
    Just made this, was not sure if I would like it- my first green smoothie. I really love it. I am so amazed that I like it. I work 12 hr night shifts and get 1 break- tried take about 35-40 min. We get 1 -30 min break and 2-15 min breaks if possible. I just re- started this program two days ago, biggest problem is work- I take a salad can beans nuts etc, I wait till I get to work to add tomatoes English cumber and any veg’s that would cause the salad to get wet. It takes time just to prep my salad and them to eat it- so I go in the back room get my place mat that I brought to work prep my salad- cut veg’s put beans in the microwave- like it warm them place salad on a large dish I brought in from home- rather eat from dish then plastic container. Will then check with my co- workers that everything ok and let them know I am taking my dinner break. I am nurse on a very large city hospital- I work every weekend 12 hr nights and one eight hr night during the week. So, made this blended salad to use has my lunch. I put all four cups in a qt bottle- most likely will need to stay at work all weekend- due to snow.
    Ok, extra long report. Tried this you will like it.
    Trying give this 5 stars just will not take 5 stars.

  4. Hello Jennifer and WELCOME to Blender Babes You can freeze them and then take them out to thaw the night before a busy morning, but in the fridge they will only be good for about 24 hours. Hope that helps! 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!

  5. Welcome Diana! Yes, you can use any high powered blender to make a green smoothie. We actually think the Ninja is a good 3rd choice after a Blendtec or Vitamix, especially if you are mostly making green smoothies. 🙂 Let us know if you test this recipe and rate it for our growing community! 🙂 xo
