Smoothies With 5 Ingredients That Look Too Good To Drink

Smoothies With 5 Ingredients That Look Too Good To Drink

Sometimes you just get a craving for certain flavors. Whether you are in need of something sweeter or need some extra greens in your daily diet, look to smoothies to make your dreams come true. Well, that might be an overstatement, but smoothies truly are a great way to help kick-start your day.

 

Before we give you the actual smoothie recipes, we have a couple smoothie tips to help with the blending process. If you have a VitaMix, you can disregard the following information. Those blenders are monsters and can tackle anything. If you have a regular blender, add the ingredients and liquid to the blender and pulse away. Then add the ice or frozen ingredients and blend until you get a smooth consistency.

 

Sometimes adding protein powder to a smoothie can result in chalky clumps. To avoid this, mix the powder with your liquid of choice in the blender first and then add the rest of the smoothie ingredients. If you are one of those people who like to use almond milk in smoothies, it is best to make your own. Most commercial almond milks contain processed ingredients or added sugars. Use the video below to learn how to make your own.

 

 

Fruity Smoothies

Orange Mango Smoothie:

No need to use any store-bought orange juice for this recipe; just hit the produce aisle and make some of that homemade almond milk.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of homemade almond milk
  • 1 cup mango
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1 banana, frozen overnight
  • 1 date

 

Hazelnut Oats & Blueberries:

If you aren’t in the mood to eat some hot oatmeal, blend some oats in your smoothie. This is a great way to fill up and get a sweet, nuttiness to your smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 banana, frozen overnight
  • 1 cup homemade almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnuts

Wake Up With Sweetness:

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • ½ cup banana, frozen and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons goji berries
  • 3 tablespoons raw coconut flakes
  • 1 cup homemade almond milk

 

Green Smoothies

Protein & Greens:

While you will be getting some plant-based protein from the spinach, you can add more, if you want, by using a plant-based powder. If you are opposed to protein powder, you can use some hempseeds or flaxseeds.

  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 cup homemade almond milk
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 banana, frozen overnight
  • 1 scoop Dherbs CocoHemp powder, or 2 tablespoons hempseeds

  • ½ banana
  • 2 romaine leaves
  • 1 apple, cored
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 cup organic, unsweetened coconut water

  • 1 cup pineapple
  • ½ banana
  • ½ cup mint
