One of my favorite things about Summer is smoothies! Usually, in the colder months, smoothies aren’t your first choice. But this is where they shine, and they’re super healthy! So if you’re trying to cut back on sugar but are craving something sweet, this is for you. Not only are they nutritious and sweet, but they’re also filling and customizable. Drink these for breakfast, before your workout, an evening snack, midnight snack, etc. Smoothies are an all-day thing, and with these summer recipes, they’re about to become your favorite thing.

(Protein powders are optional in all of these)

Instruction 

The instructions for all these are pretty much the same, add the ingredients into a blender. And blend. Then serve, you can add ice if you want a colder and smoother taste. Or you can freeze the milk into ice cubes if you don’t want to add water.

Banana Chocolate Protein

This smoothie is really creamy, and is a healthier version of a chocolate milkshake! Most of these recipes have 4 main ingredients with additional add-ons. 

Ingredients

  • ½-1 banana sliced
  • ½ cup yogurt (this makes it creamier and thicker)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cardamoms (optional)
  • Chia seeds and/or flaxseed (optional but makes it healthier)
  • Chocolate protein powder (I’ve found that chocolate protein powder goes best with bananas and apples)
  • Ice(optional)

Mango Smoothie with a Kick

If you want more than one fruit, then try this apple and banana smoothie. 

Plus, if you want to add more servings of the fruit, go ahead! This is for you.

Ingredients

  • ½-1 banana sliced
  •  Half apple sliced
  • ¼  cup yogurt 
  • ½ cup milk
  • cardamom(optional)
  • Chia seeds and/or flaxseed (optional but makes it healthier)
  • protein powder (optional)
  • Ice(optional)


Mixed (Frozen) Berry Smoothie

One of my favorite things about this is that it needs the least work. If you’re in a rush you don’t need to peel/chop up fruits and can just use frozen berries. 

Another tip is to freeze the fruit ahead of time, so if you’re in a rush you can make it quicker.

Ingredients

  • 1/4  cup yogurt 
  • ¼ – ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup frozen berries
  • Chia seeds and/or flaxseed (optional but makes it healthier)
  • protein powder (optional)
  • Ice(optional)

Veggie Green Smoothie

Ever wanted a healthier smoothie? This is the one for you, with your favorite veggies you can make a veg version for the trip. 

You can also use beetroot, carrots, celery, etc for other vegetables.

Ingredients

  • ¼  cup yogurt 
  • ¼ -½ cup milk
  • spinach/kale
  • Avocado (optional)
  • Any other veggies you like in smoothies!
  • Chia seeds and/or flaxseed (optional but makes it healthier)
  • protein powder (optional)
  • Ice(optional)

Those are 6 smoothie recipes, perfect for breakfast or just a cool evening drink. If you want to replace a meal with it, try adding protein powder so you have more fuel for the day. 

One of the best things about smoothies is that if you’re trying to eat healthier, you don’t have to be stuck with bitter, boring food you don’t like! They can be sweeter with honey and riper/sweeter fruit, plus thicker if you add nuts or more yogurt. 

There’s no one size fits all, so experiment with your drink! I own a NutriBullet blender, and I’ve had it for about 3 years now, and it’s great! But any blender you have will do, so enjoy your smoothie and let me know if you have any favorite recipes.

I love expanding my smoothie list and would love to hear what you think about these recipes. Thanks for reading!

Take care till next time1

  1. I can’t imagine having oranges in a smoothie, I’m too used to having orange juice that it’d be too weird to have such a think orange tasting drink in my mouth. I also really don’t like the taste of bananas which rules out another one. However, I do like the berries so the berry smoothie sounds appealing, as the only fruits I normally eat are berries.

  3. I love making smoothies for breakfast in the mornings! I will have to try these recipes out, thanks for sharing!

  4. I am a huge fan of banana chocolate smoothies, but nothing beats a mixed berry smoothie in the summer! I make it with frozen fruit and add protein powder for an extra kick, and it is cooling and delicious. 🙂

  5. Ooh I love this! I don’t usually have smoothies but sometimes they’re just what you need. The berries one looks amazing and I’m intrigued by the orange one too – I’d love to try them both! Thank you so much for sharing x

  6. Smoothies and such healthy drink are a requirement for some when one starts a workout. Bananas are usually done most. I was so intrigued by the orange one I haven’t seen it before or thought about it. And avocados are also very nutritious. Great ones you gave. Loved it. Xx
