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. Hello and Welcome Jen! 1 serving is usually 1 cup, however most people drink between 16oz and 32oz as “1 serving” especially when it’s a meal replacement vs a snack. If I do have leftovers I freeze it in either ice cube trays and use for future smoothies or I’ll freeze in a mason jar and thaw it the night before I have a busy morning and need to run out the door. 🙂

    Spot on with this write-up. I’ll probably be back again to read more, thanks for the advice!

  2. We do a smoothie with kale, collards, tumeric, hot peppers, shitake, coconut oil, walnuts, kiwi, lime, stawberries and Muscle Milk. I also add some yogurt. It lasts all day, sometimes we eat part for breakfast, part for lunch. We love how this makes us feel.

      Wow Tyanne, that sounds like an extremely interesting smoothie! We would love to test it out. Can you please email with approximate measurements of amounts of all for our test kitchen? If it makes the site you will be credited. 🙂 Thx for sharing!! xo

  3. I was reading about a green smoothie concern with high oxalate levels that can cause crystals that damage tissue. Should this be a concern with green leafy veggies?

    1. Hi Julie! Great question. We think green smoothies are good for you, but here is an article by one of our favorite nutritionists about the subject. She answers it better than we can. 🙂 xoxo ~Blender Babes

  4. Question. I’m allergic to bananas. It seems like so many juices and smoothies have bananas in them. Do you know of a good substitute or should I just leave them out?

    1. Hi Kristie! We understand! Avocado (1/4 to 1/2 depending on how many calories/healthy fats you want to add) and mangoes are good substitutes for banana to get the same creamy texture – but definitely omitting them is an option too!! 🙂 Hope that helps! Luv, Blender Babes
