80 Healthy Smoothie Recipes
You need new smoothie ideas right now – I can just feel it – and so I’ve got 80 healthy smoothie recipes for you! One of the number one questions I get from clients is: are smoothies healthy or not. The answer to that is….it really depends on how you’re using it, how it’s made and what ingredients you use.
I see a lot of people put 4-6 servings of fruit in a smoothie, blend it up and then wonder why they don’t feel energized or are left hungry an hour later. This type of sugar rush and crash can happen even with the healthiest of fruits combined in the blender. Instead, focus on fruits balanced with greens, protein and healthy fat – and the options are so plentiful. Nuts, seeds, powders, dairy and non-dairy milk bases offer so many nutrition and flavor options.
I called my friends in to help with this 80 Healthy Smoothie Recipes round-up. As you know, I’m here in the Pacific Northwest in Seattle and it was so amazing to see recipes pouring in from all around the country. Dietitians are so talented at creating original recipes that taste great and are nutritious, too. Every single one of these recipes is balanced and focused on supporting your health in a variety of ways. I divided them into several categories with about 8-10 recipes each so that you can find exactly what you’re looking for, discover new recipe developer dietitians, and get inspired to step up your smoothie game this season.
The post starts off with some more traditional tropical and citrus smoothies then moved to berry-based options. You’ll see a lot of strawberries and blueberries being used – try frozen! They last a long time in the freezer.
After that, I’ve got a category called “banana based” and to be honest. many of these smoothies could fit in several different categories but some of these definitely are founded in the sweet, frozen banana realm and so this is exactly where you’ll go when you’ve got ripe ones on hand.
After the banana category, you’ve got a big chunk of green smoothies and this is an incredible way to incorporate veggies into your breakfast or snack. Green smoothies should taste amazing and that’s exactly what you’ll find here.
Next up, you’ve got protein-focused smoothies. To be fair, about every smoothie in this whole 80 Healthy Smoothie Recipes is going to be balanced with protein but the ones listed in that section actually have the word “protein” in the title and are really focused on that nutrient. This is a great section to check out for those pre or post workout snacks.
After that, I’ve got the most fun category: unexpected ingredients. Beans? Maca, moringa, spirulina and other superfoods? Check. You’ll even find a couple melon-based smoothies (including one of my own!). Next up, you’ll see a big list of “Unusual Veggie Smoothies” – that’s right. Beets, carrots, Swiss chard and beyond live in this section.
Finally, I’ve got a list of chocolate smoothies for those cocoa fans. I keep baking cocoa on hand at all times to use in my smoothies and you’re going to love all these creative ideas. Beyond that, there’s a big list of smoothie bowls for your breakfast or snacking pleasure. Some of these are just so unique and gorgeous. I included a section specifically for pumpkin smoothies which you can actually make any time of year because they’re so nutritious and delicious. Canned pumpkin to the rescue! I end on dessert-inspired smoothies so if you love banana bread, carrot cake and chocolate truffles, make sure to read on to the end of this post.
