Last week I asked yaโ€™ll to send me some smoothie and juice recipes since I tend to do the same thing over and overrrrr.

To see all of the smoothie recipes: click here —–> https://fitnessista.com/?page_id=7406

AMAZING, huh?! So many awesome recipes! Thanks for helping me out of my rut, friends ๐Ÿ˜€ Iโ€™ll be adding this post under the cookbook tab (under vegetarian and vegan) in case yaโ€™ll ever need some smoothie inspiration.

And to those of you who love green smoothies and are looking for new recipes, be sure to check out Angelaโ€™s Green Monster Page.

Have a great day and Iโ€™ll be back later with the Insanity review page (so far) and other shenanigans.

***Guess what?! Today is NATIONAL GARLIC DAY! Fellow garlic lovahs, to celebrate this momentous occasion, the amazing Garlic Gold peeps are offering 20% off their *Garlic Gold sample pack* (which Iโ€™m pretty much obsessed with) in my OpenSky store. Coupon: GarlicGold

Something to talk about:Whatโ€™s your #1 necessary smoothie ingredient? For me, itโ€™s a tie between Sun Warrior protein powder and banana. If it doesnโ€™t have one of the two, itโ€™s not a smoothie to me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Blogworld=crazy creative.

    • Fitnessista on April 19, 2010 at 9:48 am

      when did you send it to me?? send it again and i’ll add it in!!!

  2. Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin on April 19, 2010 at 9:41 am

    Wow those are some awesome recipes.

    My number one smoothie ingredient has to be bananas. I tried making one yesterday without one because I was out, and sadly, it was definitely missing something.

  3. Jessica @ How Sweet on April 19, 2010 at 9:44 am

    So many great smoothie ideas here! Mine #1 ingredient is a FROZEN banana!

    • Shelly on April 19, 2010 at 10:30 am

      Bananas are the best b/c then you don’t need to add sugar!

  4. Jenny on April 19, 2010 at 9:48 am

    Wow! The chocolate mint looks to die for! My main ingredient would be bananas, i feel like every smoothie I’ve ever had has bananas in it!

  5. Ana (AnActive Adventure) on April 19, 2010 at 10:17 am

    Girl thanks for putting together all those awesome smoothie recipes!!!! I love smoothies and lately the main ingredient of them has been loads of berries, it is time to switch it up ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Heather (Heather's Dish) on April 19, 2010 at 10:25 am

    thanks for posting my recipe! i love changing it up though and i think all of these sound amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Shelly on April 19, 2010 at 10:26 am

    Holy Cow these look awesome! I will have to try the Sunshine, Cherries Jubilee and Basil smoothies ASAP! Great post!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope people enjoy my Elvis smoothie! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on April 19, 2010 at 10:44 am

    Yum!!! So many great recipe ideas for smoothies– definitely bookmarking this post!

    All of my smoothies seem to somehow have at their base almond milk and a banana, so those are definitely TWO number one ingredients for me ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on April 19, 2010 at 10:44 am

    This is such a great resource. OK, next time I make a smoothie I’m coming here and picking one of these. I think I need to start with the Creamy Sweet Basil smoothie. I love the addition of basil. Genius, Lynna.

  10. rachael on April 19, 2010 at 10:51 am

    Thanks for posting my recipe! Lots of great ideas!

    I am just catching up and saw your brown rice burger mishap, bummer:( There is a great recipe on The Kitchn website. I made them last week and they were amazing (though a bit messy to make) and posted my modifications.

  11. Angela (ohsheglows) on April 19, 2010 at 10:58 am

    WOW so many amazing recipes!!! Thanks for the shout-out too.
    I need to try this sun warrior protein powder. I have been hearing such great things about it.

  12. Lauren @ BIOCHEMISTA on April 19, 2010 at 10:59 am

    SO excited to try out some new recipes!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for doing this, Gina! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Kilee on April 19, 2010 at 11:18 am

    Wow! Look at all these amazing smoothies! Thank you so much for compiling them for us to enjoy. I hope that you’re still lovin’ the insanity workouts. Have a great day!

  16. Danielle (Coffee Run) on April 19, 2010 at 11:18 am

    These are all great recipes- thanks!
    At first I thought you were going to say that garlic was your necessary smoothie ingredient lol. Mine would be protein powder (Jay Robb to be specific ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    • Fitnessista on April 19, 2010 at 11:19 am

      hahah i love garlic, but not quite like that ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Mary on April 19, 2010 at 11:31 am

    Great ingredient ideas! Coconut! Oats! Coffee! Mint!

    I just made a pear, blueberry, spinach, coconut smoothie! Yum!

    Banana is great for the texture. Avocado serves the same way.

  18. ari on April 19, 2010 at 11:31 am

    omg that basil smoothie sounds SO DELICIOUS!

  19. Lily @ Lily's Health Pad on April 19, 2010 at 11:59 am

    Flax seeds are my number one ingredient! They add a great nutty taste!

    What a collection of smoothies! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Katie on April 19, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    These are great ideas!!! I will have to try the mint for sure! I am intruiged by the basil smoothie…I may have to try it. Banana is definitely my must-have smoothie ingredient.

    Where can I get Sun Warrior?

    • Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on April 19, 2010 at 12:56 pm

      I get my Sun Warrior from iHerb.com. They offer free shipping on orders over $40, and if you’re a new customer you can use promo code MIG017 for $5 off your first order! They were quick and had the best prices I could find!

      • Fitnessista on April 19, 2010 at 1:45 pm

        good to know!
        i get mine from amazon.. the price is pretty good and i usually manage to find some more things to put in my shopping cart ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Lexie on April 19, 2010 at 3:52 pm

        Thanks Megan for the promo code…I just ordered some Sun Warrior!

        • Fitnessista on April 19, 2010 at 3:54 pm

          i hope you love it! i think you will ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Heather @ get healthy with Heather on April 19, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    I always have to have a banana in my smoothie. It gives the perfect amount of sweetness

  22. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on April 19, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    YAY I’m so excited to try all of these! My must-have ingredient is also a tie, and it’s between protein powder (currently LOVING Whey Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate!) and a frozen banana. Thanks so much for the shout-out!

  23. melissa @ a lambs tail on April 19, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    #1 would HAVE to be kombucha!!
    im really surprised that there wasnt any in these recipes. makes the best smoothies in the world. i think bananas and ginger would tie for second.

    • Fitnessista on April 19, 2010 at 1:45 pm

      i have never heard of adding kombucha to a smoothie! i totally need to try it ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on April 19, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Thanks for the new ideas! That chocolate-mint one looks right up my alley!

    My must-have ingredients for smoothies is greens! I put greens (usually spinach) in every smoothie I make! Sun Warrior and frozen bananas are a close second, though! I usually start off with all three of those as my base, and go from there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. RhodeyGirl on April 19, 2010 at 1:00 pm


    Love all of these creations! Thanks for collecting and sharing Gina!

  26. TanyaS on April 19, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    I’ve tried the Sunshine in a Glass juice, let me say as a pregnant woman I like to call it “Heartburn in a Glass”!

    Tasty, but it will have to wait a few more weeks for me to enjoy it.

    Love all these recipes. I had never thought of using coffee. Love it.

  27. s on April 19, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    wow, so many good ideas! i loved this post.

  28. jen trinque on April 19, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    My number one smoothie ingredient is definitely a banana!

    Those were some great recipes,thanks for getting them all together in one place. I see some I want to try…

  29. brittney on April 19, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    I dislike bananas like kindergartners dislike naps. Great to see some recipes that are banana-free! Thanks, y’all.

  30. Anna (munchingmamacita) on April 19, 2010 at 2:10 pm

    Bananas!!! Especially the supah ripe ones. They really sweeten up the smoothie without adding extra sweeteners. That mint chocolate smoothie looks AMAZING

  31. breakingsilence @ Freshman -15 on April 19, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Ooh, that mint one looks really good!

    As for my #1 necessary smoothie ingredient? A banana. Just doesn’t taste right without one!

  32. fittingbackin on April 19, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    WOW – thanks for the awesome smoothie round-up. I’ve never made one. yes – it’s true! this post gave me inspiration – and my husband LOVES them so maybe i’ll start making them for him!!

  33. Jeannette on April 19, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Coffee + chocolate protein powder = genius!

  34. Allison @ Food For Healing on April 19, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    so many different smoothies, thats awesome. Might have to check back here once and awhile for a new recipe

  35. Ashley (whole-ier) on April 19, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    Great idea for a blog post! I def want to try a few.

  36. lauren on April 19, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    What an awesome post ๐Ÿ™‚ and thank you for posting mine! I’m so excited to mix it up some more!

    Let us know which ones YOU try, and how you like them. That would be awesome!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. Ashley on April 19, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    great post! can’t wait to try the choc/mint one! My essential ingredient would have to be bananas…. and peanut butter- it just makes everything better! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  38. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on April 19, 2010 at 5:29 pm


    I need bananas in my smoothie!!


  39. Lynna on April 19, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    thanks for posting my smoothie! like mostly everyone else, my favorite smoothie ingredient is frozen bananas BUT frozen avocado is a close second– not so much for flavor but it adds a great smoothness and creaminess to the texture!

  40. Steve on April 19, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    My wife has short term memory issues, so my research identified Spinach, Blueberries and Branch Chain Amino Acids (found in some protein drinks) as being beneficial ingredients. So we fire up the blender and include these ingredients in our breakfast smoothie!

  41. jessica on April 19, 2010 at 9:46 pm

    Hi Gina – have you ever tried Jay Robb brown rice protein powder? I bought some after hearing so many rave reviews but it’s very chalky when blended into a smoothie. Do you have this problem with Sun Warrior?

  42. Pure2raw twins on April 19, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    YUM! All the smoothies look amazing.

  43. shireen on April 21, 2010 at 5:37 am

    heaven = 1 cup cold papaya cubes,1/2 frozen banana, 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, 1 teaspoon PB
