Six Delicious Smoothie Recipes

I am always trying to have a healthier lifestyle and smoothies are an easy and delicious way to work on that. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I would really not recommend skipping it. As a plus, you only need around 5 minutes to prepare it in the morning so being in a rush to get to the office cannot be an excuse to skip breakfast anymore. A good combo for smoothie can give you a tasty first meal and you might actually enjoy healthy food!

I will now share the ingredients for 6 smoothie recipes that I use, from Monday to Saturday, because on Sunday we spoil ourselves with pancakes or crispy bacon and eggs! You just need to add all the ingredients in the blender and mix them until you have a smooth puree.

PS1: All recipes are vegan because I am working on myself and try to eliminate dairy and animal products in general as much as I can. 

PS2: The ingredients above are for 2 persons. If you like to prepare for only 1 person, you need to divide everything in 2.

Monday - Recipe no. 1 – The Green Smoothie

       1 banana

       2 handfuls of baby spinach

       1 kiwi (optional)

       1 big tablespoon of peanut butter

       1 cup of almond/ soy vanilla milk

 

I would also recommend adding Spirulina or Chlorella powder because they are really healthy and give you an extra boost of energy. Spirulina is among the world’s most popular supplements. I haven’t put it as mandatory because I, for example, take spirulina pills every morning so I won’t need the powder anymore.

Tuesday - Recipe no. 2 – The Purple Smoothie

       1 banana

       1 cup of frozen or fresh blueberries or blackcurrants

       2 handfuls of kale

       1 big tablespoon of peanut butter

       1-2 tablespoons of honey/agave syrup (depending how sweet you want it)

       1 cup of almond milk

 

Wednesday - Recipe no. 3 – The Morning Boost Smoothie

            1 banana

       1 handful of baby spinach

       1 handful of kale

       1/2 avocado

       1 kiwi 

       1 big tablespoon of peanut butter

       1 cup of almond milk

       +/- parsley (so healthy)

       +/- spirulina/chlorella powder 

 

Thursday - Recipe no. 4 – The Very Berry Smoothie

       1 banana

       1 cup of frozen or fresh blueberries/raspberries/blackcurrants

       1 cup of strawberries

       1-2 tablespoons of honey/agave syrup (depending how sweet you want it)

       1 cup of soy vanilla milk

Friday - Recipe no. 5 – The Yellow Smoothie

       1 banana

       1 fresh mango or 1 cup of frozen chunks of mango

       1/4 melon

       1 big tablespoon of peanut butter

       1 cup of soy vanilla milk

Saturday - Recipe no. 6 – The Strawberry Pina Colada Smoothie or The Pink Madness

       1 banana

       1 cup of strawberries

       1 cup of pineapple chunks (around 1/3 from a normal pineapple)

       1 cup of coconut milk

       2 tablespoons of coconut flakes

 

This recipe works perfectly without strawberries as well and you will have a regular Pina Colada taste. It is one of my favorites this is why I’ve left it for Saturday!

SERVING: If you are in a rush, you can put the smoothie in a reusable bottle and drink it on the way to work/gym/school. If you have more time and like to serve your breakfast in style, then smoothie bowls are perfect for you. 

You can use different ingredients to garnish: fresh fruit, almond/coconut flakes, oatmeal, cereals, chocolate chips, chia seeds etc.

This are my six smoothie recipes and now you have no excuse to skip breakfast anymore! Healthy, quick and delicious all in one! You have to know that a smoothie represents a full meal and has enough calories to last until lunch. You may have the impression that you are only having a fruit puree, but in reality if you are not careful, it may even cause weight gain. Be careful at the quantities and do not combine with other dishes J
