Hey, I can’t be the only one who seems to love vegetables more in the summer, right? I mean, winter rolls around and all I want is bread and chocolate. When the weather warms, however, I crave the freshness and coolness of vegetables (and fruit, too).
If you’re craving an early-morning pick-me-up or an after-workout refuel, a smoothie is the pot of gold that just keeps on giving. There’s almost no limit to what you can put in them and, if you’ve ever taken a dive into Pinterest, you’ll know that there’s a true treasure trove of unique and delicious ingredients – coffee, spinach, chocolate, banana, mango, strawberry, raspberry, whey. The list goes on and on. All that really matters, at the end of the day, is what you’re in the mood for.
I hope this list of 101 healthy and delicious smoothie recipes inspires you to experiment with flavours and puts a smile on your face that lasts an entire day (because that’s how long this list took me to curate)!
I’m not going to sit here and tell you that smoothies like this 3-Ingredient Piña Colada Smoothie are a regular part of my diet and that each morning I wake up, blend together some green stuff, some yellow stuff, etc. with some almond milk and feel the nutrients rush through me like a burst dam. Most days, my breakfast is 3 cups of coffee and a ton of rush-rush-rush. I’d love to be the person who downs smoothies to kill their addiction craving to chocolate covered almonds. But come on, you know that’s not me.
