Healthy Smoothie Recipes

In my humble opinion one of the best things about Summer and Fall is the produce – From putting together delectable salad beasts filled with all the fresh vegetables I can get my hands on to juicing & blending the fruits & veggies I pick up at the farmers market.

You can check out some of my personal favorite healthy, vegan smoothies in my recent Morning Routine post or you can read the MCLV Mange: October Smoothie Challenge series that I wrote last year.

Healthy Smoothie Recipes

If you’re following me on Instagram {Moicontrelavie} you’ve likely witnessed my love of green smoothies – They’re my usual breakfast/post workout recovery meal Mondays through Friday when I’m at the office.

I get lots of questions about my go-to smoothie concoction, what protein powder I use, whether I believe in “superfood” ingredients etc. So I’ll start this post with my favorite morning smoothie and then share some great Healthy Smoothie Recipes that I’ve found lately and think you’ll enjoy.

My Green Monster:

  • Apple
  • 1/2 – 1/4 Roasted Sweet Potato
  • Couple Handfuls of Spinach or Kale
  • Lemon juice or water
  • Sun Warrior Protein Powder {Vanilla – Raw, Vegan & Gluten-Free}
  • Navitas Naturals’ Wheatgrass
  • Cinnamon

While I LOVE a sweet smoothie and virtually any variety with fresh or frozen berries in it, I really like the energy boost and filling nature of a smoothie filled with greens. Better than coffee! 🙂

One of the most important things about smoothies is finding the right protein powder for yourself – I’ve tried dozens and finally settled on Sun Warrior a few years ago. Depending on your needs, allergies, and preferences you could try whey, hemp, brown rice… Reading reviews can be extremely helpful in making your choice so check out Chef Amber Shea’s PlantFusion Cookies ‘n Cream Protein Powder.
