The Chocolate Mint Monster:

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana

If you like mint and chocolate this one’s a keeper! :)

Heather from Heather’s Dish:

Chocolate Peanut Butter

  • 1 cup milk (whatever milk you like will work, but I use nonfat cow’s milk)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder (the darker the better!)
  • 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 banana
  • 1 packet Truvia (you could also use an equal amount of Stevia though – helps with the bitterness of the cocoa powder)
  • 2-3 HUGE handfuls of spinach (whatever can fit in the blender!)

Blend til smooth and drink up!  It’s super rich and filling and just decadent enough to think you’re drinking dessert :)

Averie from Love Veggies and Yoga

Averie’s Chocolate Vanilla Coffee Protein Shake
1 Scoop Sun Warrior Chocolate Brown Rice Protein Powder
4-6 oz of Coffee (previously chilled is nice.  Just save your “leftover” coffee from your pot to keep on hand…2-3 days I’ve stretched it in a container in the fridge without issue.  And yes, water or a nut mylk would be “better” but I like coffee, so I use it.  Use another liquid as you see fit.)
Vanilla Creamer (I use So Delicious Coconut Milk Creamer)
Vanilla Stevia Drops to taste (or regular stevia, agave, sugar, lucama, yacon, etc. or another sweetener if you choose, or omit)
4-5 Ice Cubes

Brittany from Eating Bird Food:

Clem-nana Smoothie

½ cup brazil nut milk (6-7 brazil nuts + 1/2 cup water), or 1/2 cup other milk (regular, soy, nut, rice, etc)

3 clementines (peeled)

1 frozen banana

1 tbsp. frozen blueberries (optional)

2 ice cubes

Put the nuts and water into the blender, run on high until the nuts are completely blended and the water has turned creamy. Using a high-powered blender the nuts get pulverized and I didn’t see any point in straining the nut milk, however you could strain it if need be. Add the clementines, banana, blueberries, and ice cubes, turn the blender on high, and run until smooth. Enjoy!

Brandi from Bran Appetit

Cocoa-nut Cherrie Smoothie

  • 1/3 cup dry oats (adds bulk + texture)
  • 1 cup milk (almond, soy, skim, whatever you have)
  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened coconut (adds such great texture!)
  • 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • Blend and enjoy!
    SO good and filling. AND it’s great without the oats, too. And with almond butter :)

Lynna from Petit Gateau:

Creamy Sweet Basil Smoothie
You can definitely tailor the amounts and ingredients of this to your taste.  Smoothies are flexible and the flavor of basil is strong enough to come through the fruit.  You can even add a little spinach for more green power!
Serves 1
Ingredients
1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt or skyr [I used Siggi’s Orange Ginger skyr]
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1 large bunch fresh basil (about 15-20 leaves)
1/2 a frozen banana
4 chunks of frozen honeydew or mango [this time I used honeydew]
1/4 of an avocado [I actually have avocado chunks, which I’ve frozen, so I used those, but I realize that not everyone does this…]
3 ice cubes
juice of half an orange or lemon (optional)
extra basil to garnish (optional)
Preparation
Toss all ingredients into your blender and blend on high until the mixture is uniform. If you’re blender isn’t top-notch (and mine definitely isn’t) you’ll probably have to stop and take the top off a few times to mix around the ingredients yourself and scrape the sides. If it still doesn’t blend up nicely try adding extra liquid (either more coconut milk or water, your choice) a tablespoon at a time.

“Charlie’s Dessert For Lunch Shake”

This is what I make when I’ve made homemade peanut butter in the vita-mix. It’s a great way to clean out all the “left-overs” under the blades.
1 cup rice milk, or unsweetened plain almond milk
1 TB dark chocolate chips
1 TB raw cacao nibs
One frozen banana
1 small container of organic vanilla yogurt
A scoop of protein powder
(Plus a spoon of natural peanut butter if you aren’t “cleaning up” leftovers. Of course you could use almond butter too!) :)

From Shelly

The Elvis Smoothie

1 banana
1.5 T smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup 0% Fage Greek Yogurt (but I think this would be awesome with 2% Fage, or with vanilla Chobani for added sweetness)
1 C room temperature or chilled coffee (you can add more or less to taste)
lots of ice cubes

Rachael from Peace Kale and Yoga

– celery

– red chard

– frozen strawberries

– frozen peach slices

– frozen banana

– sunflower seeds

– almond milk

– sometimes protein powder

I leave the stalks on the chard and just slice off the very bottoms, so it gives the smoothies a nice pink color:)

From Beth:

Peach Pie Smoothie:

1 cup non-dairy milk

1 small ripe banana (or half a giant one)

1 cup frozen peaches

1 tbsp maca

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1/4 – 1/2 tsp cinnamon

3 cups raw spinach (optional)

Blend, chug, and celebrate the eternal summer that lives on in your heart.  Or maybe it’s just me that does that :)

Angela from Eat Spin Run Repeat

Pumpkin Soy Milk Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (be sure to use canned pumpkin, not canned pie filling)
  • 1 cup soy milk (I use Silk unsweetened)
  • About 6 ice cubes
  • 1 packet stevia, if you like it sweet
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • a bit of water (to thin out the smoothie – or else it’s kind of hard to slurp with a straw)
  • ½ scoop vanilla whey protein powder

Place all ingredients in blender and process until smooth.

  1. So many smoothies, so little time. Now I’ve definitely got a reason to get out my blender tomorrow morning!

  2. I saved so many of these smoothie recipes and now I am going to try them every week. Thanks Gals!

  3. i love both peanut butter and cheeze as the filling of my morning sandwhich.”’

  4. ooh, these look lovely…although is the mocha protechino correct with 1 CUP of protein powder? that is insane.
