Green Everyday Smoothie Recipes

When it comes to healthy ingredients, there's nothing better than vegetables. In this case, vegetables that are as low in sugar as possible. One of them is kale. This nutritious leafy vegetable is packed with vitamins and nutrients and has almost zero calories (usually 35 per serving) and zero grams of fat.

Kale is high in iron and vitamin K, both of which are good for your blood and can be beneficial for heart and kidney problems. Vitamin K in particular can help with blood clotting problems, while iron helps strengthen the blood and keeps the kidneys strong.

Kale is also high in vitamin A, which is good for strong, healthy skin cells, and vitamin C, which helps keep your immune system strong. Kale is anti-inflammatory and can even help provide you with powerful antioxidants.
Plus, it contains a healthy dose of calcium for strong bones. Kale is a superfood that provides the body with nutrients, and it blends very well into most green smoothie drinks.

Another recommended ingredient is wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is hailed as one of the most vitamin-rich foods in the world, and it can easily be transformed into a healthy smoothie.

First of all, wheatgrass is a powerful antioxidant that can help strengthen blood cells and detoxify the body. In addition, wheatgrass is extremely rich in chlorophyll, minerals and enzymes.

Wheatgrass is a wonderful addition to any healthy smoothie and pairs well with the flavors you're already used to.

The following two recipes are green smoothies that take full advantage of kale and wheatgrass.

The Green Maschine

  • 3 cups ground kale
  • 1 cup cubed pineapple
  • 1 cup wheatgrass
  • ½ cup mango
  • 1 kiwi (cubed)

The main ingredient for this everyday smoothie recipe is kale combined with wheatgrass. Wheatgrass is also known as a superfood. If you want to learn more about other superfoods for smoothies just click the following link to "What are good superfoods for smoothies".

This smoothie is high in protein, vitamins and just enough sugar to get you going. The recipe makes enough for several servings, but since it tastes best chilled, feel free to keep some in the fridge.

The only criticism of this drink might be the slight tartness of the pineapple or kiwi. The pineapple and kiwi are included not only for their health benefits, but also for their higher sugar content, which adds some flavor to the drink.

If you might be thinking of replacing one of these fruits with a banana to improve the taste, this is not recommended if you want to lose weight. Although bananas contain many vitamins, they are also very high in calories.

Kale Garden Smoothie

  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 cup carrots
  • 1 cup spinach
  • ½ sliced lemon
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 cup wheatgrass

This is a spicy, tangy drink that is geared towards health. While it is not the sweetest drink, it does provide some great vitamin boosts. These come not only from the kale or wheatgrass, but also from the tomatoes and spinach.

This smoothie is rich in iron and vitamin K, and the lemon should round out the flavor with a sharp note so it's not too bland. If you like, you can spice up this drink with some melon or mango for an extra little sugar kick.

Orange Smoothie Recipes

There is a good reason why fruit is usually the first choice when we make our own smoothies. Fruit tastes great, and we're already familiar with the different juices fruit has to offer.

But have you ever thought about the benefits of a smoothie made with fruit, and the vitamins that the right combination of fruits provides?

One of the most commonly used fruits in smoothies are oranges. Oranges provide the body with a high amount of vitamin C, which boosts the immune system.

For example, oranges contain hesperidin. This is a chemical used by blood cells to improve diastolic blood pressure and prevent heart problems.

It is now believed that oranges can lower bad cholesterol and balance the body in detoxification. Oranges are thus a healthy and wonderful addition to your smoothies.

Orange Power

  • 2 oranges
  • 2 clementine
  • 1 cup acai berries
  • 1 cup pineapple (cubed)
  • 1 cup strawberries (no stems)

Clementines are a bit sweeter than oranges because their sugar content is slightly higher. Otherwise, they offer similar benefits as oranges.

Acai berries are also known as superfoods. They are proven to be rich in antioxidants, boost the immune system and provide the body with vitamins and minerals.

Acai berries are powerful berries and can sometimes clash with the taste of oranges and clementines in your smoothie. Therefore, it is good to combine them with strawberries or pineapple to get an extra sweet kick.

Morning Starter

  • 3 oranges
  • 1 cup mango
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • ½ cup star fruit
  • ½ cup melon
  • ½ cup carrots

This smoothie is a great energy boost in the morning. It provides you with a large portion of vitamin C and calcium, and gives you a natural sugar boost that can help you start your day. You can enjoy it anytime, even if the name doesn't suggest it.

Blue Everyday Smoothie Recipes

Berries contain many antioxidants. Blueberries and pomegranates, in particular, are considered frontrunners in providing the body with healthy, detoxifying agents.

Blueberries are rich in phytonutrients that have anti-inflammatory effects and can help in the fight against cardiovascular disease. Pomegranates are rich in vitamins and also taste wonderful.

The Blue Master

  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup pomegranate
  • ½ cup blackberries
  • ½ cup cherries
  •  ½ cup raspberries (optional)
  • 1 cup acai berries

Most of this drink comes from the same berry family. You get many of the same nutrients in different combinations, making this a powerful cleansing drink. This one tastes sweet and also mixes very well.

The raspberries are also very healthy, but can be too much for some, as they often leave more seeds in the smoothie, but on the other hand, they are not hard. The cherries are an excellent source of vitamins and help to mix up the flavor a bit.

The Berry Booster

  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup pomegranate
  • 1 orange
  •  2 cups cherries
  • 1 kiwi

This drink is similar to the Blue Master, but adds the citrus flavor of oranges. Also, the cherries are mixed with the flavor of healthy kiwi. This adds a touch of green vitamins to the already rich drink.

Red Smoothies

There are some red fruits that offer both, wonderful health benefits and fantastic flavors. The largest and easiest fruit to mix with others is the strawberry.

These delicious berries are rich in anthocyanins, quercetin and kaempferol, which have also been reported to be useful in fighting various cancers (such as oral, colon and breast).

Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and you only need 5 strawberries to get the recommended daily dose of vitamin C.

Red Rooster

  • 3 cups strawberries
  • 1 kiwi
  • 2 cups cherries
  • 2 cups raspberries
  • ½ star fruit

This chilled drink provides you with many important vitamins, tastes great and also gives you a sweet kick for the day.

You can easily spice up this drink with the green of a kiwi. If you want to spice it up even more, you can also add some carrot to the mix (about ½ cup) for extra vitamins and minerals.

Red Velvet

  • 3 cups strawberries
  • 1 cup cherries
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

This smoothie stands out from the others on this list because it contains the powerful probiotic yogurt. The addition of plain yogurt (preferably Greek yogurt for its nutrients) results in a thicker, richer smoothie that provides an extra calcium boost.

The vanilla is purely a matter of taste and provides nothing more than an additional flavor to balance out the yogurt.

Protein Shakes

protein shakes

Of course, the family of smoothies also includes protein shakes. Protein is the building block with which the body rebuilds muscles. When you train intensely, your muscle tissue tears and leaves gaps. Your body then tries to fill those gaps with extra protein, which it converts into muscle.

This is why bodybuilders drink high-protein shakes. It is recommended that the average person consume 45 to 55 grams of protein per day to help the body repair normal wear and tear.

Protein also helps with weight control and processing of liquids. If you consume protein regularly, you are likely to experience less muscle soreness and fewer problems with fatigue in endurance situations.

The Roadrunner

  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 4 oz Soy or Almond milk
  • 1 scoop strawberries
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1 cup ice cubes

This drink has a relatively simple structure. You can choose from healthy fruits that taste best to you. The advantage is its simplicity.

The powder is a dietary supplement and its use should be discussed with your health advisor or doctor beforehand. In most cases, this is a quick way to get a protein boost without having to drink gallons of juice.

With the ice you get a nice cool drink and it also helps you for a not too thick creamy consistency.

Yogurt

The yogurt in your protein shake is a wonderful filler. It provides good body and a creamy flavor that adapts to almost any smoothie flavor in which it is used. Furthermore, yogurt is rich in probiotics that help strengthen the immune system and keep you healthy. 

Greek yogurt is more passivated than regular yogurt. This removes more lactose and sugar and gives a creamy and protein-rich substance. This is low in carbohydrates and helps balance sodium levels in the body which in turn can help with overall fluid management.

All of the other fruit-based smoothies in this blog article can also benefit from the addition of yogurt as a filler or thickener. It also helps you turn many of these smoothies into low-dose protein shakes.

You can make excellent use of this for building muscle and regenerating the body after strenuous activities.

The Banana Boat

  • 1 banana
  • 1 orange
  • 1 scoop peanut butter
  • 4 oz almond milk
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • Ice as filler

This shake is simple, delicious and strong. It used to be recommended to avoid bananas because of their high calorie count.

But when you think about protein, a high calorie count is not necessarily a bad thing. Plus, bananas taste great when you mix them with oranges.

The Gladiator

  • ½ cup wheatgrass juice
  • ½ cup carrots
  • ¼ cup spinach
  • 1 spoonful peanut butter
  • 3 oz tomato juice
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • Ice as filler

This shake might be a bit much, so you might want to skimp a bit on the peanut butter. However, if you're looking for something that's high in protein, vitamins, and energy, then you should give this recipe a try.
