Mango-Basil Green Smoothie Recipe

Mango-Basil Smoothie

Here’s a delicious green smoothie that blends my favorite tropical fruits with an ingredient you don’t usually associate with a smoothie – basil! The basil goes really well with the pineapple and mango in this smoothie. I only added 5 leaves and it didn’t overpower the smoothie. Adding herbs, such as basil, to your smoothies […]

Coconut-Kale Green Smoothie Recipe

Kale Coconut Green Smoothie

This is a great meal replacement green smoothie for weight loss, cleansing, or for when you just want something healthy. Oranges and kale are loaded with fiber, which helps support your body’s cleansing abilities! The flavor of kale can be strong for some people, so that’s why I like to use curly kale instead of […]

Banana-Cherry and Chard Green Smoothie

Epic Protein Powder

This delicious green smoothie blends two of my favorite things – cherries and vanilla! This is a great post-workout smoothie (or meal) providing almost 400 calories and 17 grams of protein in just 26 ounces of deliciousness. I added some pumpkin seed protein powder from Sprout Living for a boost of protein. Sprout Living is […]

Strawberry-Coconut Smoothie Recipe with Beet and Avocado

Strawberry-Beet-Smoothie

When you think about a delicious green smoothie, beets, avocado and celery are not the typical ingredients you plan to use. However, they can blend wonderfully with sweet strawberries and coconut water for a nutrient-rich treat. I’ll admit, beets might not be for everyone, but give them a try before you decide. Beets are a […]

Pineapple-Starfruit Green Smoothie Recipe

Starfruit, also known as carambola), lends an apple-like flavor accent to this tropical green smoothie recipe. Starfruits are a great source of antioxidants and vitamin C. Before blending, remove the peel and seeds. The banana in this green smoothie provides the creamy texture and the pineapple sweetens the recipe perfectly, effectively hiding the mineral-rich, but […]

Melon-Cucumber Weight Loss Green Smoothie Recipe with Mint

Melon-Cucumber-Mint-Smoothie

This green smoothie is excellent for both weight loss and cleansing. It’s also delicious! Fresh mint and sweet melon are one of my favorite combinations. Dandelion greens are a great source of minerals (especially iron and calcium), protein and dietary fiber. They are also high in vitamins A (thanks to the antioxidant beta-carotene content) and […]

Orange-Carrot Smoothie Recipe with Pear and Oats

Day 14-twitte

This orange smoothie is delicious! While I usually post green smoothies, this recipe is still highly nutritious, loaded with beta-carotene, vitamin C, and with decent amounts of calcium, iron and other nutrients. This smoothie is rich and creamy thanks to the pear and…oats! That’s right, this smoothie contains oats! While not a typical smoothie ingredient, […]

Pineapple-Celery Green Smoothie Recipe with Dandelion and Parsley

Pineapple-Celery Smoothie

This is my FAVORITE green smoothie! I make this smoothie every couple of weeks. I get dandelion greens at my local health food store, but if you don’t have access to these greens, simply use fresh kale or spinach. You can also swap the almond milk for coconut milk or the pineapple for an orange. […]

Pear-Raspberry Green Smoothie Recipe with Beet

Beet-Pear-Smoothie

Don’t be afraid to use beets in a green smoothie. While they have an earthy flavor, the flavor is easily masked by sweet pear and raspberry in this recipe. If you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, then beets will liquify and provide a lot of extra nutrition in your smoothie. Beets are […]

Pummelo Ginger Green Smoothie Recipe

Pummelo-Green-Smoothie

Nothing tastes better together than citrus fruits and fresh ginger, and this green smoothie recipe is a taste bud pleaser! Don’t be intimidated by how large pummelos are. Once you cut though the peel, they’re only about the size of an orange. Pummelos are a great source of dietary fiber with the average fruit containing […]
