5 Superfood Smoothie Recipes

By Sarah MacDonald | Nutrition

Smoothies can be your answer to tons of nutrition roadblocks. Looking to hit your macros? Smoothies. Looking for post-workout protein? Smoothies. Looking for a portable meal when you take your kids to the park? You already know what I am going to say – Smoothies!

The great news is you can add or subtract anything you need from these recipes. Need more calories? Add oatmeal, nut butter, avocado, or banana. Looking for more nutrients? Add fresh spinach or chia seeds (I promise you can barely taste it)! 

Here are 5 great healthy smoothie recipes that pack a punch of nutrients – and taste good, too!

1. TURNT UP Tropical Spinach Smoothie

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2-3 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup kale (can be omitted if taste is too strong for you)
  • half banana
  • 2-3 pineapple spears
  • whole, peeled lemon (just peel like an orange and throw right in)
  • 1/2 cup ice (optional-I prefer without ice!)

2. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie (without the family drama)

  • 1 cup almond or regular milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • (a cup of cauliflower could also hide nicely in this recipe if you are looking for more nutrients!)

3. Mint To Be(rry)! Smoothie

  • 3 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 5 sprigs mint
  • 2 cups almond (or any!) milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 – 7 medjool or california dates, pitted (if you’re watching macros this can be cut down or eliminated but 1-2 won’t hurt you 🙂
  • juice of 1 lime
