Smoothie Recipes That Rock

Since I’ve obviously got smoothies on the brain, I wanted to share some “Old Faithful” recipes that I make pretty regularly, which are delicious and great for the ol’ bod.

  1. Basic green smoothie: Frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple, generous handful of spinach leaves, water.  That’s it.  Obviously you can sub in/add different fruits, or switch out the greens (although I can’t stand kale so I typically use spinach, as it is much more mild in taste).  But it’s a simple, tasty recipe that gets the job done.
  2. Tropical fruit smoothie: Frozen strawberries, frozen ripe bananas, almond milk, and a tiny bit (say, 1/8 tsp or less) of coconut extract (can also use vanilla). For an extra tropical feel, add in some chunks of frozen pineapple (oooh la la!).
  3. Peanut butter choco banana smoothie: Frozen ripe bananas, almond milk, 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and a teaspoon of cocoa powder.  You can omit the cocoa powder too, and it’s just as delicious.  OMG this is like a dessert, it’s so good.

Obviously you can blend pretty much anything, so this is just a teeny tiny list of delicious smoothies. But they are my go-to smoothies because they are so easy and have few (and relatively inexpensive) ingredients.
