Print Recipe
This satisfying blueberry spinach smoothie is made with iron-rich foods like hemp hearts and soy milk so it packs in 4.5 mg of plant-based iron and 15 grams of plant-based protein per serving (with no protein powder)!

Notes

Low FODMAP note: swapping almond or macadamia milk for the soy milk makes this fully low FODMAP, but it does lower the protein! Consider adding 1/2 - 1 scoop of a low FODMAP protein powder if enjoying as a meal.
