Ingredients

Green smoothie

  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 green apple, chopped
  • 1 banana

Strawberry banana smoothie

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 banana

Tropical smoothie

  • 1/4 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1/4 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut

Avocado smoothie

  • 1 ripe avocado, mashed
  • 1 banana

Watermelon smoothie

  • 1 cup watermelon
  • 1 lime, juiced

Peanut butter banana smoothie

  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter

Blueberry smoothie

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 banana

Base ingredients for all smoothies

  • 1/2 cup dairy, almond, rice, soy or coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (optional)

Optional add-ins

  • 1 tbsp flax, hemp or chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp protein powder of choice
  • 1 tbsp sweetener of choice (honey, stevia, agave syrup, dates)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce (use in place of banana)

Instructions

  • Add in base ingredients and add-ins of choice to a blender or Magic Bullet. Usually almond or coconut milk, Greek yogurt and hemp seeds are my go-to ingredients for any smoothie but you can add in additional natural sweeteners or swap out bananas for applesauce.
  • In addition to your base ingredients, add the ingredients for whatever smoothie you want to make. For instance, if you are looking to make the green smoothie, add the spinach, green apple and banana to the blender.
  • Blend ingredients on high until a smooth consistency develops. Add more milk as desired if you'd like a thinner smoothie. Serve immediately or enjoy up to 3 days after making your smoothie.
  • Tip: If you want to make these smoothies ahead you can assemble little individual-sized plastic bags filled with the fruit-based ingredients and freeze up to 3 months in advance.
