Spinach Nutella Smoothie

Looking for a healthy chocolate smoothie? Say no more, fam. This Spinach Nutella Smoothie recipe is packed with leafy greens, fruit, and your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread!

Nutella smoothie with spinach in a glass

My go-to, everyday kind of smoothie goes something like this: banana + spinach + milk. Boom, smoothie.

But whenever we have a jar of Nutella in the house, it calls for me constantly. So my natural reaction (besides eating said Nutella with a spoon) is to throw it in a smoothie!

The result is a smoothie that tastes more like dessert than breakfast (while still packing in a decent handful of leafy greens and a banana!) The spinach is undetectable in flavor (thought it does make the smoothie a bit…green) and the Nutella does wonders for making this smoothie super chocolatey!

Ingredients to make a nutella smoothie

Healthy Nutella Smoothie Ingredients

  • Spinach: Use fresh or frozen spinach here. You can also substitute kale, thought the texture won’t be quite as smooth.
  • Milk: Use virtually any plain or vanilla flavored milk here. Dairy, non-dairy, anything goes!
  • Banana: Frozen banana is best for adding frosty coolness to this smoothie. Just peel, roughly chop, and freeze a banana the night before making this.
  • Nutella: And of course, the star or the show! For a dairy-free option, use almond butter and a sprinkle of unsweetened cocoa powder.

Variations on this Nutella smoothie

As with most smoothies, this Nutella smoothie is pretty flexible to changes and substitutions. Here are a few ideas:

  • Use Kale: Substitute the spinach for fresh kale (it may need to be blended longer as kale has a tougher texture than spinach.
  • No Banana: You can replace the banana with 1/4 cup of coconut milk (even better if you freeze the milk into ice cubes before hand!)
  • Dairy Free: Make it dairy-free by using plant-based milk and substituting the Nutella for almond butter + unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Make Popsicles: This smoothie makes great popsicles! Just pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for 4-6 hours (recipe is in my book, For the Love of Popsicles).
