My Favorite Smoothies

I am a creature of habit.  I like to try new smoothies, but mainly I stick to these tried-and-true smoothie recipes that I know by heart.

Here are three of my favorite go-to smoothie recipes.


Pineapple-Strawberry Protein Smoothie

1 cup of water or coconut milk

1 1/2 cups of ice

1/3 cup frozen pineapple chunks

1/3 cup frozen strawberries

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 scoop of Super Reds

Add ingredients liquids first to blender on low gradually increasing to high blending for 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached.  Depending on the size of your fruit chunks you may have to add water.


Lemon Smoothie

1 packet Real Lemon or 1/4 cup lemon juice

1 cup water

1 1/2 cups ice

1 Tablespoon of honey (optional)

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

handful of spinach or kale

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 scoop of Super Reds

Add ingredients liquids first to blender on low gradually increasing to high blending for 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached.  You may have to add water.


Chocolate Banana Smoothie

1 cup water or coconut milk

1 1/2 cups ice

2 handfuls of kale or spinach

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 banana

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

1 tablespoon of honey (optional)

Add ingredients liquids first to blender on low gradually increasing to high blending for 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached.  You may have to add water.


Most of the time I don’t put the honey in when I make these smoothies because I am trying to cut back on my sugar.
