1. Smoothie with grapes and berries
Frozen grapes are a great way to complement berries. When you combine them, you are in for an antioxidant-rich treat. In addition, blending grapes down the skin, releasing more Vit C, manganese, and potassium from the fruit.
2. Smoothie with peachy green protein
While our recipe calls for defrosted peaches, you may want to substitute fresh peaches because they are currently in season. You will also get a good dose of fibre and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids from the kale and ground oat fibre.
3. Tropical smoothie with 5 ingredients
This bright, beachy smoothie tastes like summer in a jar. Combine mangoes, pineapple chunks, orange slices, chopped bananas, and coconut water in a glass jar and prepare to be teleported to a tropical island in an instant.
4. Honey-sweetened green smoothie
This wonderfully refreshing and fiber-rich smoothie, made with spinach, avocado, almond milk, green tea, and raw honey, will keep you full until midday. This protein-rich Mango Honey Green Smoothie recipe comes highly recommended as well.
5. Smoothie with blueberries and almond butter
This smoothie is a delightful and nutrient-dense afternoon snack because it combines fresh, delicious blueberries with creamy, calcium-rich almond butter. Add a spoonful of flax or chia seeds to your custom glass container to make this recipe more fiber-rich and delicious. This smoothie can also be made with organic peanut butter or sunflower seed butter.
6. Smoothie with a green dream
This insanely yummy smoothie, made with kale, almond milk, banana, and nut butter, is a great snack option that will keep you full until dinner. To satisfy your 3 p.m. sugar cravings, add a few sliced dates or a dash of organic honey.
7. Yogurt berry frappe smoothie
This frappe smoothie combines antioxidant-rich blueberries and strawberries with crunchy chia seeds, sugar-free almond milk, and creamy yogurt for a simple yet substantial breakfast alternative for busy workdays.
8. Vegetable smoothie with low calories
This low-carb smoothie is packed with the freshness of fresh cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, spinach, and celery, making it a quick and easy way to keep hydrated while increasing your intake of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. To make the smoothie more lemony and summer-friendly, I like to add a dash of fresh lemon juice.
9. Smoothie with strawberries and kiwi
This effortless smoothie recipe is packed with the deliciousness of creamy yoghurt, zesty kiwis, and frozen berries to give you the energy boost you need to start your day. A teaspoon of chia seeds can be added for an extra boost of protein, iron, and fibre.
10. Breakfast smoothie with choco banana
If you are like me, you will hunt for every opportunity to satisfy your chocolate cravings. This cocoa-infused morning smoothie allows you to do just that while also providing you with the energy you need to get through the day. Is not it fantastic?
11. Smoothie with tropical popsicle
Once you taste how complex this smoothie is, you will be seeking reasons to drink it. Carrots, apple cider vinegar, and raw honey are hidden among the yummy mango’s healthier ingredients. The lusciousness comes from the light coconut milk that binds everything together.
12. Smoothie with pumpkin, cashews, and cinnamon
This simple healthy smoothie recipe exemplifies the versatility of blended fruit drinks. Frozen bananas are a smoothie mainstay, but everything else is a little different and unique cashew milk, pumpkin puree, and a pinch of cinnamon. You will assume you are drinking pumpkin pie, which is not necessarily a terrible thing.
13. Smoothie with pomegranate, pink grapefruit, and beets
Smoothie recipes that use yogurt are typically wealthier and creamier than those that don’t, and that is exactly what you will discover in this delicious pink smoothie. Milk (whole) Greek yogurt adds creaminess, taste, and much satisfying protein to the dish. The grapefruits and pomegranate juice are bright and energizing. The bitter edges of the juices are smoothed out with a bit of honey.
14. Smoothie with fresh cranberries and oranges
When apricots and melons are long gone in the fall and winter, cranberries and citrus fruits appear in the produce area of your local store. These unusual fruits are highlighted in this smoothie recipe, including maple syrup, a classic fall ingredient.
15. Smoothie with dates and cream
Dates are widely used in sweet treats as an all-natural sweetener. They add body and richness to this simple smoothie, as well as a powerful, caramel-like flavour. If the dates are not blending well, soak them in the milk for 15 minutes before starting the blender. This will assist in softening them.
16. Smoothie with lemongrass, ginger, and buttermilk
This smoothie is best served in the winter when lemongrass is in season, and you need a boost of vitamin C. That is exactly what this smoothie has to provide, coupled with tangy buttermilk and a hint of fresh ginger. There not any Meyer lemons? For a comparable flavour, use one ordinary lemon and one little orange.
17. Smoothie with gingery berries and oats
Mash those grains into a smoothie instead of eating a bowl of oatmeal for the morning for a delightful, nutritious snack. They will soften up after a quick soak in water, making them easier to combine with the berries and yoghurt. You can replace the water with oat milk for a fuller finish.
