10 Super Smoothies: A Roundup!

Creamy Nutty Berry Smoothie

Smoothies are an excellent way to get so many healthy foods into your body all at once.  With the christening of my new Blendtec, I have been just a bitmanic in my smoothie creations.  Lately I am making 3-4 variations a day.  Come along with me as I scout for some fantabulous smoothie recipes that incorporate health, taste, and nutrition. And don;t forget, extra smoothies make for great ‘Popsicles’ for the kiddos.  I have two styles of molds I keep on hand for this very purpose, and my kids always think they are getting ice cream!

  1. The traditional.
  2. The Silicone Push Pop
Strawberry Avocado Smoothie @ Cara’s Cravings: I have made this multiple times.  It tastes like fresh strawberries, and the avocado is undetectable but makes it OH so creamy!  I have used chia seeds and hemp hearts, and a couple of handfuls of spinach!
Kale Smoothie “Pistachio Ice Cream”@ Blender Girl:  I have made this a couple of times too…no kale taste to speak of, my kids slick it up, and so do I!  I am not sure why she calls it pistachio..no pistachio flavor or nut present, but it is DARN good!  My tweaks: I used 8 drops stevia, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, and left the ginger out.
Creamy Dairy Free Pumpkin Smoothie@ Lexie’s Kitchen.  Umm, it’s bright orange and has pumpkin…do I need to say anything else?!  Lexie always has great recipes, and this is just way too darn pretty to look at!

Mango Milkshake@The Gluten Free Pantry.  Thick, creamy, and tropical!  I will use stevia in place of the coconut sugar.

Chocolate Pumpkin Smoothie @ The Tasty Alternative.  I have made this many, many times and just adoreit!  It feels like a decadent dessert!  I double the cocoa powder and the pumpkin, add chia seeds, and use stevia to sweeten.  I sometimes also add spinach, it hides nicely!

Vanilla Banana Smoothie@ The Spunky Coconut.  My kids would be all over this!

Cranberry Oat Smoothie@ Diet, Dessert & Dogs.  I love tart things, and the addition of oats in this totally had my interest piqued!



Green Creamsicle Smoothie@ The Daily Bites.  Creamy and green….two words, and she had me!!  Spinach, cucumber, and avocado make the green and fruit sweetens it up!

Don’t Be Afraid of the Green@ She Let Them Eat Cake.  I have yet to try goji berries, so this one had me curious and ready to jump on the bandwagon!

Berry Green Smoothie@ Cook It Allergy Free.  Kim had me at the coconut butter in this one…I don’t actually have a jar of it, but making it is a cinch!

    I love making smoothies and those flavor combos sound good. You might want to swing by my blog, I'm having a giveaway for a green smoothie book. It adds vegetables into your fruit smoothie to make it even healthier for ya. They're pretty tasty. I will definitely be trying some of your recipes though.

    Ooh! I am loving the round up :) Thank you for posting all of these!

    Stopping by from Mix It Up Monday.

  10. I love smoothies! This is a wonderful round up with some ideas that had never occurred to me, but sound delicious. I know my kids will love the pumpkin smoothie. I am excited to check all of these recipes out. I had been debating whether I should create a smoothie board on Pinterest and you just gave me the nudge I needed. :)

    • alea, with the purchase of my blendtec, I’ve been a bit of a smoothie nut!! I had the pumpkin one this morning, and made some changes (stevia, orange, pecans, chia seeds, half of a banana, and no apple butter or maple syrup). Really enjoyed it, totally reminiscent of a pumpkin pie. If you check my pinterest board (click the p on my sidebar) i have a smoothie board to get you started on your own!
