Most green smoothie recipes are pretty much the same – greens, common fruits (bananas, apples, strawberries, etc.), and nut milks. If you have a smoothie every morning, the same old recipe can get really boring. The following green smoothies will break you out of your smoothie rut with unique, healthy, and delicious ingredients to help you achieve and maintain optimal health and lose extra weight.

SHOCKING PINK SUNBUTTER SMOOTHIE
This smoothie is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL, bright, tasty, and nutritious. I know I don’t get enough beets in my diet, which is a shame because beets pack a powerful nutritional punch. Beets are one of the world’s healthiest foods, yet they are underutilized in American cuisine.

GRAPEFRUIT GREEN SMOOTHIE
I LOVE grapefruit, especially sweet Ruby Red Grapefruits, which are, thankfully, in abundance at my grocery store right now. Sweet apple and banana contrasts well with the tartness of grapefruit in this unique and tasty smoothie. The recipe suggests adding orange juice to thin out the smoothie, which I recommend to add additional sweet citrus taste.

LEMON BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE
This smoothie is the ultimate for optimal health. Blueberries and chia seeds are superfoods that contain loads of vitamins and antioxidants. Lemon juice and zest add a refreshing tartness, while cashew milk and additional cashews make this health drink super creamy and smooth.

CRANBERRY MANGO LAYERED SMOOTHIE
Here we thought cranberries were just for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but cranberries are actually incredibly healthy and add delicious tart contrast to tropical, sweet mango, orange juice, and raspberries. If your cranberry layer needs additional sweetness, feel free to add a little healthy sweetener, such as honey or maple syrup.

KIWI COCONUT SMOOTHIE SHOOTERS
Clean eating whipped coconut cream topping makes this smoothie creamy and decadent while maintaining health benefits. These smoothies also look super complicated, so feel free to serve to health conscious friends at your next get together – they will be so impressed!

MULBERRY, LAVENDER + KALE ENERGIZING SMOOTHIE
One of my most cherished memories is of walking with my wonderful stepfather years ago when I was in high school. We came upon a mulberry tree, which was my first experience with mulberries. We feasted, and I found one of the most delicious berries I had ever had that day.
I love lavender in recipes – it’s a unique, tasty, and floral ingredient (check out my Lavender Cheesecake recipe on a day you feel like indulging). Rolled oats and raw cashews make this smoothie a hearty morning meal.
Before I found this recipe, I had never heard of lucuma powder. Lucuma powder is made from the subtropical fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree, which is native to Peru, Chile, and Equador. The taste of lucuma powder is described as maple or caramel to pumpkin-like. This ingredient is a nutrient rich sweetener and is not necessary in this recipe if you don’t want to order it online – you can certainly substitute any healthy sweetener, such as maple syrup or honey. However, I think it’s an ingredient worth trying as a super healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth.

THE BEST SMOOTHIE EVER
This smoothie recipe is certainly one of the most unique with the addition of spicy jalapeño. This recipe also contains cilantro, which is a nutritional powerhouse, and fruity mango to add sweetness. If you like a little spice, try this recipe. Research shows that spicy foods help speed your metabolism, facilitating weight loss, along with other health benefits.

CASHEW BUTTER GREEN SMOOTHIE
I love cashew butter for snacking and for use in various recipes! Cashew butter, banana, almond milk, avocado, and dairy-free yogurt make this smoothie a super creamy, healthy plant based drink.

PEACH GREEN SMOOTHIE
Fresh, sweet peaches are the ultimate summer treat! Luckily, peaches keep their sweetness after freezing, so you can enjoy this smoothie any time.
