These easy, healthy smoothie recipes for breakfast or snacks will inspire your clean eating habits. With flavors like banana, berries, mango, pineapple, green (spinach and kale), and chocolate, they’re perfect for adults and kids alike!
This roundup of 14 healthy smoothie recipes includes recipes that all have a base of real fruit and veggies, and only use natural sweeteners like dates and maple syrup (no artificial sweeteners or white sugar here!).
They’re all gluten-free, paleo, and mostly vegan (you can always swap out any dairy products for dairy-free alternatives, and simply omit collagen if it’s called for).
That’s another perk of smoothies–they’re customizable so you can make them perfect for your own tastes, preferences, and dietary or nutritional needs!
Note: some recipes have ingredients across multiple categories.
The Best High-Speed Blender for Smoothies
In order to easily blend smoothies with perfection, you’re going to need a high-speed blender for best results. When you have frozen fruit and veggies, and sometimes raw ingredients like nuts and seeds, cheap blenders just aren’t going to cut it (literally!).
My blender of choice is the Vitamix. A rare day it is that I don’t use this miraculous machine.
Not only perfect for blending fiber-rich smoothies into the smoothest, creamiest drinks, but I also make homemade lattes and all kinds of delicious drinks (hello, Superfood Frose), plus soups, sauces, baby food, food prep, and grinding coffee.
Yes, the Vitamix does cost a pretty penny; however, you can look at Certified Reconditioned models for a more affordable option (rest assured, they come with a 5-year warranty and a No Risk Guarantee on every Certified Reconditioned blender), or take advantage of their three- or five-month interest-free payment plans.
Alright, now that you’ve got your blender at the ready, let’s check out the 14 best healthy smoothie recipes!
