Healthy Smoothie Recipes
Citrus Sunrise Smoothie
With a one-two punch of mango and coconut, this is a perfect blend for those who enjoy a taste of the tropics. This recipe calls for frozen fruit, letting you still reap the nutritional benefits of out-of-season fruit like mango. Just one serving offers 100% of your daily goal for vitamin C and over one-quarter your daily calcium needs in a low-calorie package.
This protein-packed sipper has only 6g added sugars—far less than what you'll typically find at a smoothie shop. Look for shelf-stable cold-brew in the coffee aisle or refrigerated versions near the creamer or fresh juices.
Supercharged Kale-Avocado Smoothie
This hydrating smoothie is jam-packed with nutrients, delivering one-third your daily goal of vitamin A and 100% of vitamin K—two important nutrients many of us don't get enough of. Matcha green tea powder delivers a jolt of caffeine without the jittery side effects, helping you power through your holiday to-do list with sustained energy and alertness.
Berry-and-Beet Green Smoothie
A lot of people give smoothies a short blend at full power, but that doesn't give the best results. Starting at low speed and gradually increasing power lets the blades work better, breaking the ingredients down evenly and at the same time.
Smoothies are a great way to frontload your day with produce and nutrition. Just one serving of this power breakfast offers about two-thirds of the day’s calcium and about 25% potassium in a low-calorie package. Frozen banana and avocado are the secret weapons to achieve ice-cream-like creaminess here. The natural sweetness of the banana downplays the earthy notes of the kale, while ginger adds a delightful morning zing. Chia seeds amp up fiber and protein, plus they’re one of the richest plant sources of heart-healthy alpha-linoleic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid).
Rich Dark Chocolate Smoothie
This super-chocolately smoothie is a tasty nondairy option. Dates offer richness and a caramel-like sweetness—naturally—while boosting fiber by 2g. Not a fan of plain chocolate? Try our Chocolate Peanut Butter variation with natural peanut or almond butter, or the lighter flavor of our Chocolate-Raspberry Smoothie made with frozen unsweetened raspberries.
Blend up the flavors of this kid-friendly duo into a cool, creamy smoothie. Add the ingredients to the blender as listed in the recipe for the smoothest results. You can use frozen fruit instead of fresh fruit and ice, adding water as needed to thin it out.
Smoothies are a perfect way to enjoy fresh raspberries this summer. Jumpstart your morning with a smoothie, or enjoy after a good workout. This super-chocolaty raspberry smoothie is a tasty nondairy option for everyone. Dates offer richness and a caramel-like sweetness--naturally--while boosting fiber by about 2g.
