25 Healthy & Delicious Must-Make Smoothie Recipes


Whoa. It’s Wednesday, and I just published a blog post. What the heck?? For those of you who have been following the blog for some time now, this may seem a little odd for you as I only ever post on Sundays. Well, it’s the new year and I’m changing things up. Change is good right? Right!

For 2019 I decided I’m going to start highlighting more recipes that are out in the blogosphere and some of my own from the NITK archives in a couple of handy little roundup posts each month. There are just so many talented bloggers out there that create amazing recipes and I’m all for the philosophy of supporting and shining a light on others to benefit everyone! Every couple of weeks you’ll see a post from me with a list of great recipes in a particular category, like today, smoothies!

I’ve searched and scoured the web and have reached out to some of my own favourite bloggers to compile this lovely list of 25 healthy and delicious must-make smoothie recipes to inspire you and brighten up your January just a little more. I’m also using this opportunity to share a little more about the NITK 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse that will be launching on February 1st, woo hoo! I will be doing the 10-day cleanse myself starting February 4th and sharing all about it over social media so anyone can join me and share about it as we hold each other accountable and experience all the amazing benefits together! If you want to know more about the cleanse and what it’s all about I’ll be sharing the info page later this week so stay tuned!!

Alrighty, now for the smoothies, get ready for some drool…it’s going to happen!
