So many amazing smoothies are created by just throwing your favorite things together and seeing how it turns out. That’s how this awesome concoction came to be. There are 8 ingredients, but they blend together so well, it’s totally worth it! You’ll taste every bit of the bananas, berries, and cherries, and the orange juice, yogurt, and honey sweeten it up just a tad bit more and give it that desirable creamy texture. This smoothie is so fun because it’s purple!
When I think summer, I think palm trees and pineapples. This gorgeous, orange smoothie is as delicious as it looks! Throw mangos, pineapples, strawberries, orange juice, and yogurt in your blender, and once you have all of the ingredients blended well, you may want to throw an umbrella in this smoothie!
This one’s a classic, and sometimes that is exactly what you need. The strawberries, raspberries, and bananas blend together for the tastiest summer treat you can put in a glass. Use almond milk or oat milk, just a touch of honey, and a little mint for good measure. You’ll want to make this smoothie again and again!
This deep red smoothie packs a ton of Vitamin C to keep you healthy this summer. Three whole oranges, cranberries, and bananas blend with Greek yogurt and vanilla extract to produce an incredible summer treat that bursts with delightful flavors. This will be super refreshing in sweltering temperatures.
Apples are beneficial to several different systems in the body. They’re beautiful but not always so fun to eat. Throwing them into a smoothie is a great way to get your daily apple. This quick and easy smoothie include one apple and one kiwi, with kale, cilantro, and ginger snuck in for lots of anti-inflammatory benefits, plus help with digestion and more potassium. This is by far the best way to eat kale.
My kids and I think the different colors we can create with our smoothies are half the fun of making them! (The other half is, of course, drinking them!) This blue smoothie is such a fun hue, and definitely one to add to your summer smoothie list. With the almond butter and flax seed, this smoothie is practically a meal in itself. Bananas and blueberries combined with the almond butter produces a very satisfying, creamy flavor. You’ll be making this one again and again.
If you love creamsicle popsicles, you will love this smoothie. I am a huge fan of how the flavors in this one take me right back to my childhood! Vanilla protein, almond milk, orange juice, banana, and honey really come together to create a dreamy, healthy, dessert-like healthy treat.
Here are some flavors that are skipped over way too often! Peaches and coconut blend together with only ice and a little lemon juice, which really allows the peach and coconut flavors to come all the way out in the smoothie. When you’re drinking this smoothie, just close your eyes and pretend you’re sitting on a beach in the Bahamas, because it will feel like it!
You don’t have to feel guilty about this protein and Vitamin C-packed shake! To create this dessert-like concoction, you need vanilla protein powder, key limes, banana, and almond milk. But to really give it the most delicious final touch, add graham cracker crumbs to the top! This smoothie will have you convinced you’re cheating on your meal plan, but in fact, you’re taking great care of your body!
