My Delicious New Smoothie Recipes

green smoothie


Smoothies can serve many different functions. They can be:

  • A snack
  • Any meal: breakfast, lunch, or dinner
  • A way to get maximum nutrition with minimum effort
  • A way to experience delicious flavors without damaging your health
I have used smoothies in the past to conduct a 5-day reset by having 3 smoothies per day, with additional foods like sauerkraut and kefir (rich in probiotics).
I call this a “reset” because it helps reset your palate, conquer your food cravings, and even out your energy.
When you’re actually replacing a meal with a smoothie, it can be helpful to add a little healthy fat and/or protein, such as hemp seeds or nut butter. This will ensure that vitamins get absorbed better from the smoothie.
Here are four smoothies that are super scrumptious and provide great nourishment too. We’ll start with the healthiest—it makes a perfect breakfast.

This one is bursting with freshness thanks to the lime and cilantro or parsley. And since it contains only fruits and greens, it’s crisp and clean—perfect for breakfast. Drinking this in the morning is an ideal way to start your day with lots of greens.

1/2 cup chopped cilantro or parsley

Banana Orange Green Smoothiedownload
Yield: 2 servings
This smoothie is an amazing combo of flavors and texture. It gets a wonderful tartness from oranges, creaminess from bananas, and a mild kick from fresh ginger. The cucumber tames any bitterness from the greens, so the smoothie is really well balanced: not bitter, but also not too sweet. Adding 1/2 avocado makes it more filling, creamy and adds healthy fats.
1 cup water
3 cups spinach or chard
1-inch piece fresh ginger root, peeled
2 bananas
Juice of 1 sweet orange
1 medium cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/2 avocado
Put the water, green, orange juice and ginger in a blender and process on high speed until smooth. Add the bananas, and cucumber, and process until smooth. Add the avocado and process until smooth.


Blueberry Ice Cream Smoothie

This is a frosty frozen treat that will remind you of desserts you loved as a kid. I don’t use protein powder very often, but in this smoothie I like it because it creates a taste just like creamy ice cream.
3/4 cup water
1 1/4 cups frozen blueberries
1/2 orange
2 cups spinach (optional)
1 serving plant protein, such as brown rice protein powder
1 1/2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
Put all ingredients in a blender and process on high speed until smooth.


Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie
Yield: 2 servings
This just might be the most decadent smoothie I’ve ever created. It really could be dessert. Yet this is full of healthy ingredients, satisfying as a meal, and high in protein and good fats from the nut butter and hemp seeds.
1 1/2 cups almond milk (homemade or store bought)
2 frozen bananas
1 medjool date, pitted
2 tablespoons peanut butter or almond butter
2 or 3 tablespoons cacao powder

sprinkle hemp seeds and coconut flakes on top
