I love smoothies. I make a smoothie each morning. This list of healthy smoothie recipes includes 10 staple smoothie recipes, including one recipe for a green smoothie so you can finally get your feet wet! It tastes great and you can’t taste the greens at all, promise!

 

I felt lost recently when my blender had the biscuit. After searching for a new one, I finally decided on this one. I am very happy with it so far. It works well, it’s not too loud and it has a metal driver (important for durability). Plus, it gets 4.5 stars on Amazon out of 73 reviews.

Suggestions and substitutions

Use frozen fruit and organic ingredients.

If you do not have certain ingredients, here are some substitutions you can try:

  • ¼ – ½ coconut yogourt instead of banana if you like but usually I wouldn’t suggest adding both as it makes the smoothie too thick
  • coconut milk instead of almond milk (or vice versa)
  • unsweetened orange juice instead of coconut water
  • ground chia seeds instead of flax (or use both)
  • ¼ tsp of stevia instead of honey
  • kale instead of spinach
  • berries are interchangeable
  • peanut butter instead of almond butter
  • you can add greens to any of these
