My Best Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are such a good quick breakfast, lunch, or snack, with a variety of ingredient combinations that taste so delicious. I have compiled my best smoothie recipes here for you to try and make your own.

Add your favorite vegan protein powder for a nutritional boost before or after workouts!

There is nothing as easy or convenient as a quick smoothie. I throw the ingredients in my high-speed blender or even a smoothie blender with a detachable cup, and I’m ready to go.

It’s perfect to make before going to work or running errands when you don’t have time to stop and eat. I love taking along my smoothie in the car, instead of just accepting hunger.

Are Smoothies Healthy?

In addition to being a quick way to get some nutrients, many people use smoothies to support certain health goals, such as weight loss or gain. Smoothies can also be used to support recovery from various illnesses.

The following are some potential applications and benefits of smoothies:

Weight gain. If you are trying to gain weight, you can include bananas, coconut cream, and protein powders in your shake, along with many other high-calorie ingredients.

Weight loss. The nutrients in smoothies can be made to be similar to that of a full meal while being much lower in calories than many meals. Smoothies can be used to lose weight, since you can incorporate healthy ingredients into them.

Sometimes I choose to drink a nutritious smoothie in place of breakfast or lunch. However, just be sure that you are taking in enough nutrients and keeping your mindset healthy! Unhealthy weight loss will not be sustainable.

Workouts. Smoothies can provide a steady supply of glucose and complex carbs, which are ideal for fueling workouts. They can also enhance muscle glycogen stores, preventing cramping and help prevent muscle pain.
