Healthy Smoothie Recipes I Make Daily

Smoothies are my favorite way to get all of my greens and veggies in! Though I love freshly cut fruit, lately I haven’t been a fan of cutting it up. Smoothies are my go-to because they’re so easy to make, absolutely delicious and able to be taken on the go. I also love them because you can drink them anytime – in the morning on your commute to work, as an afternoon snack or after a workout. I personally don’t use smoothies as a meal replacement, but Johnny has used Supergut instead of lunch before. Today I’m sharing my two favorite healthy smoothie recipes I make almost daily, starting with the ingredients I use to make each of them and then ending with the directions!

2 Healthy Smoothie Recipes

Green Smoothie

  • 1-2 cups of fresh greens (I love organic spinach or a mix of spinach and kale)
  • Handful of frozen pineapple
  • Handful of frozen mango
  • 1 banana (I love waiting for them to get super ripe so they’re extra sweet!)
  • 1 cup of almond milk or coconut water
  • 1 scoop of plant-based protein powder or green superfood powder

Berry Peanut Smoothie

  • 1-2 cups of fresh spinach
  • Half cup of acai juice or 1 frozen acai packet
  • 1 banana (I love waiting for them to get super ripe so they’re extra sweet!)
  • 1 cup of almond milk or coconut water
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • Half cup of frozen berries of choice (I like blueberries, but you can do any berry)
  • 3 tablespoons of peanut butter

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place ingredients into the blender in this order: fresh greens, frozen fruit, fresh fruit, any powders and finally the liquid. I use almond milk or coconut water, depending on how light I want my smoothie to be.
  2. With my blender, I use the smoothie setting. If it’s not blending properly, you likely have too many solids. Start gradually incorporating more liquid, or if you want, try giving it a good shake.
  3. Pour and enjoy!
