The 25 Best Healthy Smoothies for Summer

 

Love summer smoothies? Here are 25 of the best healthy smoothies! These fruit and veggie smoothie recipes make super easy meals and are delicious.

 

This might sound a little crazy, but there are two blenders in my kitchen. Yup, my fiancé and I love smoothies so much that we don't want to risk there not being a clean blender at the ready!

Summer smoothies are the ultimate summer meal. They're easy, since you can blend them up in mere minutes. And they can provide all the nutrition you need for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack time (you can eat them any time of the day!). That is, if you include plenty of good-for-you ingredients.

So I'm here to give you a quick rundown of not only the best ingredients to blend up but also the best healthy smoothies to try this week. Plus, smoothies make great 
cooking projects for kids. Ready?!

Easy and Healthy Smoothie Recipes You Can Make When You're in a Time Crunch

When it comes to blending up nutritious and delicious smoothies, there's a little bit of a science to the whole thing. But don't worry, the "recipe" is super simple. Here's my go-to formula for whipping up a healthy smoothie recipe:


Fruit or veggies (or both!)
What would a smoothie be without fruit or vegetables? They provide hydrating water and satiating fiber. I always make sure to include at least a cup of produce in my smoothie recipes. My go-to fruit is a frozen banana, which takes away the need for adding ice. I also love blending up frozen berries and cherries, and I've found that cauliflower is a really neutral veggie to add in.

Protein
For a smoothie to stick with you for awhile, it needs protein. There are many options, and my faves include plain Greek yogurt, kefir, and even frozen shelled edamame. If you use kefir, you probably won't need to add any additional liquid. With the other options, you mightand that liquid could be water, milk, plant milk, or even 100% juice.

Healthy fat
This is another key ingredient for blending up a smoothie that'll fill you up. My favorite healthy fats to include are nut butter and avocado. You can also blend in hemp seeds, chia seeds, or flax seeds.

Whole grains
I usually say to include a whole grain (hello, extra fiber!) with every meal. With a smoothie, that isn't the easiest thing to accomplish. So this ingredient is optional, but I've found that rolled oats make a surprisingly awesome smoothie ingredient. 
Are oats good for weight loss?


And there you have it! I recently chatted with TheZoeReport about the best healthy smoothie recipes. There are five featured in the article, but I also think you deserve a bigger list than that. So I'm giving you 25 fruit and veggie smoothie recipes in total!
