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!
This beautiful purple smoothie is loaded with blueberries, banana, coconut milk, greek yogurt and almond butter! For a dairy-free version you could simply swap out the greek yogurt for a plant-based yogurt such as coconut yogurt and add in some protein powder for a hit of protein!
These pretty pink smoothies are filled with a delicious combination of guava, pineapple, coconut milk, and strawberries. Gina recommends to add protein powder to make this smoothie a great pre or post-workout snack.
This delicious berry smoothie contains a berry medley, ginger, greens and more whole food ingredients for a zingy berry smoothie that’s balanced with healthy fats and protein!
This creamy dreamy smoothie/shake is filled with banana, cinnamon, and almond butter for an amazing texture and it’s 100% vegan!
This stunning layered smoothie is a serious showstopper and filled to the brim with healthy ingredients including spinach, banana, pineapple, mixed berries and vanilla yogurt (swap in coconut yogurt for a dairy free option!).
You better believe I was going to pop this smoothie in my roundup! This smoothie recipe from the blog is detoxifying and delicious all at the same time. Loaded with cranberries, pear, cinnamon, hemp seeds, and collagen it’s beautiful and balanced!
This delicious smoothie is creamy and has all the flavours of carrot cake and it’s banana-free for those of you who aren’t banana fans! Walnuts add in healthy fats and dates bring in natural sweetness.
I honestly can’t get over Tuulia’s photography. Seriously, how amazing does this smoothie look? Packed with dates, hemp seeds, vanilla, bananas, and cocoa powder, this creamy smoothie layers perfectly over mashed berries. YUM.
If you are still thinking about Christmas and all the festive flavours, who says you can’t still enjoy them? Whip up my tasty and healthier gingersnap smoothie loaded with fibre, vitamins, and minerals, and the option to add a healthier cookie too!
3 in 1 these delicious detox smoothies from the NITK archives are loaded with detoxifying ingredients and contain coconut or MCT oil for metabolism boosting and immune boosting!
This simple and beautiful blueberry smoothie contains a perfect dose of lemon for fresh flavour and chia seeds and cinnamon too!
This tasty smoothie recipe helps boost digestion with natural probiotics and fibre from blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apple, and pear.
So pretty, creamy, simple, and sweet this orange smoothie made with just a few ingredients is a definite must-make and aren’t the pictures stunning too? Wow!
I have my own creamsicle smoothie recipe too that has another take on this popular flavour. With banana, tangerine, collagen, and the optional addition of omega-oil, this smoothie brings a whole lot of nutrition to the table…or should I say glass?
Another stunner, this layered smoothie contains bright blueberries, sweet mango, banana and plant-based yogurt. It may look more complicated to make but it’s really simple as can be!
I’m drooling already thinking about the mouthwatering combination of peaches, banana, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and oats in this dessert-like smoothie. Oh, and it’s vegan too!
One of my favourites still, this rich and creamy chocolate smoothie tastes so decadent but is full of whole foods, healthy fats, and antioxidants. A must make when you have a chocolate craving!
Another beautiful smoothie from Tuulia, this recipe contains almond butter and avocado rich in healthy fats to support skin health so you can truly glow from the inside out!
This is still one of my most popular smoothie recipes and I know why! It’s delicious, light, refreshing, immune boosting, and detoxifying all in one! Perfect for this time of year!
Packed with protein, greens, frozen tropical fruits and antioxdant-rich moringa this isn’t just any green smoothie, it’s naturally sweet, balanced, and good for reducing inflammation.
Rocket greens can be a bit “spicy” for a leafy green but work wonderfully in this smoothie with the softness of pear and avocado. A unique green smoothie for the win!
Another oldie but goodie, this recipe from the archives has a perfect combination of apple and raspberries and the heart-healthy addition of flaxseeds.
This bright pink smoothie contains zucchini and cucumber but you’d never know it by the look or the taste. A great way to enjoy hidden veggies and perfect for the kiddos too!
What a list! I hope you have been inspired to make at least a couple of these amazing smoothie recipes above and that you are doing to join me in the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse coming in February! The cleanse is going to show you just how doable it is to bring more green goodness into your day. There will be no restricting, dieting, or crazy eliminating, and I’ll provide you with tons of tips and tricks to make the cleanse enjoyable and beneficial! Who’s joining me??
