10 Superfood Smoothies that Are Healthy and Easy to Make

If you’re someone that skips breakfast to save time, these smoothie recipes are for you.

Smoothies are convenient because you can quickly throw the ingredients in a blender and you’ll have a meal that’s both drinkable and portable. 

Most of these recipes can be whipped up in two minutes flat, especially if you prep the ingredients the night before. 

They’re also jam-packed with superfoods, meaning you’ll be getting close to your daily value for many different nutrients while enjoying a tasty breakfast or snack.

Let’s get to the recipes.

Strawberry and Goji Berry Smoothie

strawberry-goji-smoothie

Goji berries are packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and even fiber.

This smoothie, by Skinny Ms, pairs gojis with another amazing berry: the strawberry, which is sweet and full of vitamin C.

One cup of strawberries contains a whopping 149% of the recommended daily value (RDV) of vitamin C. That’s more than one regular sized orange.

Vitamin C helps our bodies absorb iron from plant-based foods and enables the immune system to protect us from illness. It’s also needed to make collagen, which is vital for healthy skin.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • 2 tbsp dried goji berries
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • Ice

Directions

  • In a small bowl, mix the goji berries and 1 tablespoon of water, leave for 15 minutes to allow the berries to soften. (Note: this can also be done overnight if preferred).
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Kick Booty Kale Smoothie

pineapple-smoothie

This aptly-named ass kicking kale and pineapple smoothie contains 27 grams of protein, thanks to Greek yogurt, milk, and peanut butter.

Meanwhile, pineapple is a rich source of manganese, which is essential in developing strong bones and connective tissue. The quarter cup used in this smoothie contains 20% of your RDV of manganese.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

  • 2 cups lightly packed chopped kale leaves, stems removed
  • 3/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup frozen pineapple pieces
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 to 3 tsp honey, to taste

Directions

  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Add more liquid if you prefer a thinner consistency.

Blueberry Flax Smoothie

blueberry-smoothie

Blueberries, ground flaxseed, spinach, Greek yogurt, and coconut milk make for an impressive list of superfoods.

Lee at Fit Foodie Finds had the genius idea of adding all these ingredients together to create this incredibly tasty smoothie.

One cup of blueberries contains 35% of the RDV of vitamin K. This fat-soluble vitamin is important for keeping your bones healthy and reducing your risk of osteoporosis.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup coconut milk

Directions

  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth.

This spiced tea concoction is a smoothie with a unique twist.

Not only does it contain green tea and pears, it includes cayenne pepper for a spicy boost in flavor.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

  • 3/4 cup strong green tea, chilled
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp agave nectar
  • 1 small pear, skin on, cut into pieces

Antioxidant Smoothie Bowl

smoothie-bowl

While smoothies are great for a quick, on-the-go meal, sometimes you want to sit down and enjoy breakfast at a leisurely pace.

Enter, the smoothie bowl.

It’s exactly as it sounds—a smoothie in a bowl, but there’s something more satisfying about eating breakfast with a spoon rather than gulping it down from a glass. 

You can also sprinkle on toppings for some additional texture. That extra chewing can help you slow down and enjoy the meal more.

Blissful Basil’s smoothie bowl recipe is topped with plenty of crunchy superfood garnishes to keep you healthy and full.

It also tastes crazy good.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen cherries or frozen berries
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 fresh banana, sliced
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Fresh blackberries
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp pepitas
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds

Directions

  1. Add frozen banana, cherries, hemp seeds, and almond milk to a blender. Blend until smooth and pour into a bowl.
  2. Top smoothie with sliced bananas, raspberries, blackberries, chia seeds, pepitas, coconut flakes, and pomegranate seeds.

Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

avocado-choc-smoothie

 

Who doesn’t want to hear they can have chocolate for breakfast and still be healthy?

No one, that’s who!

This avocado-based smoothie from Paleo Magazine tastes like dessert in a glass.

Avocado, which makes this breakfast so creamy, is loaded with fiber, vitamins, and healthy monounsaturated fat.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups almond or coconut milk

Plum Quinoa Smoothie

plum-smoothie

 

This smoothie by Turnip the Oven is an awesome way to use up leftover cooked quinoa from another recipe.

Quinoa has been used to fuel people since the days of the Inca warriors, and for good reason. It’s one of the most nutrient-dense whole grains, containing hefty amounts of magnesium, phosphorous, and manganese. One cup of quinoa boasts 39 g of carbs, 8 g of protein and 15% of your RDV of iron.

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe plum, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 large frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 or 5 large ice cubes

Directions

  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth.

Oat Coconut Smoothie

oat-smoothie

 

If you want to get on the smoothie bandwagon, but can’t shake the idea of oatmeal for breakfast, this recipe by Martha Stewart will help you make the transition.

In addition to the heart-healthy whole grains, this smoothie contains Greek yogurt, which is packed with protein.

This awesome smoothie also contains coconut oil which is full of lauric acid, an antiviral that also helps balance cholesterol levels. Make sure to melt the coconut oil before adding to the smoothie or you’ll end up with lumps!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

Swamp Smoothie

swamp-smoohie

 

Don’t let the name put you off this healthy smoothie recipe.

  • 1 handful raw spinach

IT’S-ON-US MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.

FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING

Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profit so our shipping is 100% free!

Okay, we don't exactly hate profit, but we do offer 100% free shipping to everywhere in the world because it makes people you like happy, and that makes us happy.

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
