Healthy Smoothie Recipes We're Loving Right Now

Friday, May 31st, 2019

The warm weather is here and so is our desire to change our workout and eating habits for the summertime. I don’t know about you, but I usually eat less during the summer and consume lighter foods in general. I also include smoothies into my routine, at least a few times a week. Depending on my schedule, packing a premade smoothie full of fresh and healthy ingredients even serves as a meal replacement or helps keep me satiated until it’s time for my next meal.

Smoothies are also a great way to get in our daily protein, fruit and vegetable servings, fiber, vitamins and more, depending on the ingredients that you add. These smoothies are a great way to pack as much nutrition as you can into one drink, while still being quite tasty and refreshing. Finding the right smoothie recipe that works for you and your taste is important, as is having a good high-powered blender. We also recommend adding protein powder to your smoothie to serve as a refreshing and restorative, post-workout smoothie.

Ingredients we recommend adding to your smoothie:

  • Nuts, nut butters and seeds - chia seeds, flaxseed
  • Protein - protein powder or collagen powder, greek yogurt
  • Greens - spinach, kale
  • Turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon
  • Fruits and Vegetables - cucumber, avocado, apple, strawberry, mango, pineapple, banana, blueberry, raspberry, lemon, goji berry

Smoothies are great because they can consist of whatever your favorite flavors are. Below are some of my favorite smoothie recipes, but there are many recipes and ideas available online as well. If you’re not crazy about any of these recipes, try creating your own by adding in your favorite superfoods, seeds, fruit and more!
