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.

Spiced Green Tea Smoothie

pear-smoothie

 

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
  • 2 tbsp fat-free plain yogurt
  • 6 to 8 ice cubes

Directions

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

Directions

  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth.

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

Directions

  1. Blend all the ingredients until smooth.

Swamp Smoothie

swamp-smoohie

 

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

It may look like swamp water, but it tastes amazing.

  • 1/2 cup chopped broccoli, steamed or raw
  • 1 handful raw spinach
  • 1 cup almond or hemp milk

Made in USA

Where your supplements are made matters, because rules and regulations regarding quality and purity differ from country to country.

And if you want to ensure the supplements you’re swallowing every day are safe and effective, you want products produced in the USA.

That’s why all of our supplements are made in America in NSF-certified and FDA-inspected facilities that operate in accordance with the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations.

We pay a premium to work with the best manufacturers in the country, but it’s the only way we can also produce the best all-natural sports supplements.

Lab Tested

Did you know that studies have shown that many supplements contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

Not ours.

Every ingredient of every supplement we produce is tested for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Naturally Sweetened & Flavored

While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.

That’s why all of our supplements are naturally sweetened and flavored and contain no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.

Science-Backed Ingredients & Doses

Every ingredient in every supplement we offer is backed by peer-reviewed scientific research, and every dose is included at clinically effective levels.

That means everything in our products is based on published scientific studies demonstrating real benefits, not the restrictions of razor-thin production budgets and gluttonous profit margins.

So, while everyone claims to have the best supplements on the market, we can back it up with real science and real numbers.
