Now that the holiday feasting is over, it’s time to whip out the blender and make some refreshing, nutrition-packed smoothies for breakfast.
We’ve all ‘been there, done that’ with New Year’s resolutions. But there is nothing wrong with taking steps, no matter how small, to commit to eating healthier and making better food choices. Believe me, I’m guilty of the same. I cooked and hosted for the family for Christmas dinner this year and attended a few holiday parties besides that. And you know how we justify eating leftovers because we don’t want the food to go to waste? Oh, yes. I did that too.
Well, enough of the guilt feelings. I’m saying bye-bye to fatty, high calorie foods and saying hello to refreshing smoothie recipes!
Here, I’ve gathered up 17 of my favorite smoothie recipes that are perfect to jump-start my New Year health goals! Are you with me? 😉
Mango-Pineapple Smoothie: You can’t go wrong with fresh mango and pineapple in this easy 3 ingredient smoothie. These two tropical flavors makes it feel like summer all year round.
Paleo Peach Coconut Smoothie: A quick combination of ultimate deliciousness and only requires a few ingredients. Using fresh, sweet peaches adds just enough sweetness, but feel free to add a little sugar if you prefer it a little added sweetness.
Pink Beet Smoothie: It is a difficult task to get in the right amount of fruit and vegetables each day. If I make a blender full of this pink delight of a nutritious drink then I feel like I’ve accomplished something in my day.
Matcha Green Tea Smoothie: Adding fiber to your day is super simple with this chia seed-infused recipe. I love this satisfying smoothie that is also dairy-free and vegan.
Strawberry and Cream Smoothie: This delicious strawberry delight is rich in Vitamin C and is a glassful of creamy yumminess. I love keeping a bag of frozen strawberries on hand to make an extra rich smoothie.
Simple Blueberry Lemonade Smoothie: Mix up this protein enriched smoothie to get your day started just right. Fresh or frozen blueberries will work and using a drop of lemon essential oil gives it a fresh taste.
Rainbow Smoothie: Not only is this rainbow smoothie so pretty to look at but it is also kid-approved! My boys like to help make these on weekend mornings and often ask for them over pancakes.
Layered Tropical Smoothie: The most refreshing, colorful and super tasty smoothie that even kids will love has mango, strawberries, kiwi and bananas in it!
Chocolate Nut Butter Spinach Smoothie: Chocolate and spinach in the same sentence doesn’t sound quite right but it works perfectly in this recipe. This has to be the best way to get in your daily dose of green, leafy veggies.
Green Wake Me Up Smoothie: This really is the perfect combination to get me moving early in the morning! I love how it tastes and my hubby asks for it so often I keep the ingredients on hand.
