Smoothie Goodness

Smoothie with Strawberries and banana
Smoothies have been my favorite way to start my work days for the last month. We've revived our very old blender, which until I convince Gary that we need to get the NutriBullet will have to work, or maybe not, so we will be forced to get it (see what I did there...)! I've been drinking the same smoothie adding in a few ingredients here and there, but the one I'm sharing today is my absolute favorite! I haven't started adding protein powders, chia seeds or anything fancy, but it's only a matter of time!

Very Berry Banana Smoothie

Smoothie with Strawberries and banana

Ingredients//

1 cup berry medley of sorts (frozen)
1 cup other mixed fruits (mango, peach and pineapple - frozen)
1 ripe banana
1 tablespoon of Greek Yogurt - plain - I LOVE Fage
1 handful of spinach and kale 
Drizzle a little honey to be mixed in - if you need extra sweetness
1 cup of water 
This will make enough for two full cups if you want to share! 
I'll add the water first and then proceed with the frozen fruit. From there I add in the banana, then the yogurt and once everything is blended I add the greens in with a little drizzle of honey. If it gets too thick I'll add a bit more water in to break it up.  
Here are a few smoothie's I'm excited to try soon. 
Raspberry Peach Smoothie
Banana Mango Avocado Green Smoothie
Green Detox Smoothie
Berry Banana Oat Smoothie

What I love about smoothies is that they are super easy - tasty and most of all filling for breakfast! What's your favorite combination for a smoothie?

  2. Nothing like a good smoothie!! I feel like it's a super way to get all the fruits and veggies I need in one swoop since I don't always get my 5 or more servings in a day. Your recipe is much like the way I make mine. I have yet to try a green detox but boy is it ever pretty, lol. Happy Tasty Tuesday!!!

  3. I love starting my day with a smoothie because I know I'm getting a lot of good nutrients! I never thought about combining the two types of frozen fruit--I'll have to try that the next time I have both types on hand!

  5. I love that you keep your smoothies nice and simple. They taste so good that way! I make mine almost the exact same. It's a great way to get some of your daily fruit intake!

  9. I used to make them in the morning but I've gotten so bad about grab and go Quest bars with coffee. I need to get better about making breakfast again.

  11. Smoothies have def been my go to since I don't love veggies and am preggo.. Need the veggies! My fave of course is strawberry banana haha.. Xo

  12. seriously berry and banana are THE best. i highly recommend a very small dash of cream of coconut (in the ethnic foods section of grocery stores - not coconut water) and it'll taste like a pina colada with berries! it's so dang good ;)

  14. YUM! I love a good smoothie! I haven't tried adding avocado to my smoothies yet, but its on my list. I really like adding a bit of oats because I think it really makes the texture creamy. ~Hannah (www.HannahAtHomeBlog.com)

  19. Now that it's warm, I can get behind a smoothie! We used to have a ninja but it wasn't strong enough to PULVERIZE all the ingredients so we went with a much more expensive blendtec blender. It is worth EVERY penny! It pulverizes chia seeds and even EMULSIFIES salad dressing so the oil and vinegar NEVER separate! Best. Blender. Ever. Make today work, Rachel -CubicleCouture

  20. Your smoothie looks so delicious, Biana! It's weird because I love smoothies, but I'm never one to either crave or suggest them. Usually, my husband is the one who will randomly suggest we get one; he LOVES smoothies! I also never really made them at home, why? I don't know! Hopefully we'll be experiencing more warmer temps sooner rather than later, so that I can start making them at home, which you've totally inspired me to do, thank you! I hope you're having a great start to your week so far, beautiful, thanks so much for sharing!

  23. What a good way to start your morning! Makes me want to dig out my own blender!

    ReplyDelete
  24. YUM! Such a good way to get in a bunch of greens too! I love using spinach in fruity ones for that very reason!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sounds like a great way to start your morning!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yummy! I love smoothies in the morning! Sometimes I don't have time make them in the morning...wish I did. I make something very similar to this whenever I do...I use almond milk instead of water and don't add yogurt. I need to start adding some protein powder though. The raspberry peach smoothie sounds divine!

  27. We tried making smoothies a few years ago, but we never could keep on making them every morning. I think that we should definitely try again because this would be a great way to get our fruits and veggies in!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yum! Your smoothie looks so delicious and I love all the other ones you linked! I have a smoothie post for next week, they are just my favorite! I love switching up the ingredients to create new flavors, it's so fun! Definitely need to check out this green one!

  30. I love smoothies, just never seem to get around to making them! Maybe that needs to change!

  32. I'm so glad you shared these! I've been making smoothies again and they aren't bad, but they never taste like anything-- I did add a bit of honey to one yesterday and it made it a little bit better. I think I'm going to try yogurt to see if that gives me a little more flavor :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. YUM - thank you for this post! I'm always looking to switch up my morning smoothies. And, I advocate for you getting the Nutri Bullet, we love ours!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I was on a smoothie kick for a really long time and I think I want to get back in to it. One of my favorite smoothies was actually using a banana and some PB2 to make a chocolate peanut butter one that tasted like a recipe cup! Fage is my favorite yogurt as well :)

  35. I'm a big smoothie fan! I try to keep the portions 75%veggies, 25% fruit in order to keep the sugar content down!

  38. This is almost identical to the smoothie that I made for a snack almost every single day when I was on maternity leave with Olivia! The honey is my secret ingredient because it sweetens it up so well without having to use sugar!

    ReplyDelete
  39. The best tip I've learned about making smoothies is to add coconut water! It's a little sweet, so it blocks some of the green flavor.. I can add twice as much kale or spinach when I use coconut water in place of regular water or almond milk. It's delicious and hydrating and perfect for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love this recipe! Smoothies are definately one of my favourties however I am guilty of going for the already made ones by NAKED but I do make my own frequently. My favourites always have to contain almond milk and I love mango and raspberries within smoothies as well as the odd banana!

  43. I have been on such a smoothie kick lately, but the bad part is that I've been getting them at Whole Foods aka $$$$!! I need to start making my own :)

  44. I want to try banana mango avocado. That looks amazing and I always like making them at home over buying them out.

  45. The very berry smoothie sounds a lot like the one I make but I haven't tried adding Greek yogurt. That is a good idea :) I love sneaking in spinach and kale. I also like using coconut water instead of regular water. My blender does a pretty good job but I would love a Nutribullet too :)

  46. Yum-o! My smoothie recipe looks almost identical to yours except I substitute the greek yogurt for a frozen banana to add creaminess. :) I always keep a ton of frozen fruit in my freezer because these quick smoothies like this are a great treat no matter what time of the day or season!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I used to be so good about making smoothies everyday! I need to get back into that. I would put the greens in first with the liquid to make it extra fine. Loved banana/berry combos though!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I've been all about the smoothies lately, and my go-to is very similar to your very berry banana...try throwing in some chia seeds, I promise you won't taste the difference!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Derek makes just about the same one for us most mornings but I love the idea of adding a little honey in!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I make a smoothie almost every morning and am always trying new variations. This sounds so good! Thanks for sharing!

  54. I need a ninja! I have destroyed three "cheap" blenders trying to make smoothies. (; My fiance isn't too happy about it. haha Green smoothies with kale and banana are my favorite!

  55. Yummy! We love smoothies in our family. Lately we've been doing a lot of peanut butter, chocolate, banana smoothies.

    ReplyDelete
  56. This recipe sounds delicious! I love using frozen or fresh berries to make smoothies. The nutribullet works wonders to make smoothies and protein shakes!

    ReplyDelete
  57. hmmm maybe i will need to magically make my blender stop working as well lol. this is very similar to the smoothie i make, spinach/banana/berries and milk (i've never tried water.. interesting). i also drink the entire thing haha. i sometimes add protein powder but eh. i went through a chia seeds phase but they get stuck in your teeth.. and flaxseed was super hard to clean off the blender. plus, lazy. too many ingredients and i won't make it!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Have you ever tried using frozen bananas? My bananas go bad so fast I never think to use them in a smoothie...wondering if I froze them they would be good later for a smoothie when I'm craving one!? Either way, this looks fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  59. SO yum!! I am pinning this for later because I want to make your berry smoothie! The other ones you found look great too - especially that green detox!
