17 Best High Calorie Smoothie Recipes We Adore
Carrot cake is healthier than chocolate, but it isn’t the most nutritious dessert around. But this smoothie bowl sure is!
Like the real thing, it’s high in calories – 450, to be exact. However, it uses wholesome ingredients rather than refined sugar and processed flour.
Carrots, Greek yogurt, oats, and pumpkin spice make up the base. Meanwhile, shredded coconut, nuts, and raisins cover the top.
It tastes pretty close to carrot cake, but it’s way better for your body.
If you want a refreshing smoothie with minimal ingredients, this one’s for you.
All it takes is frozen mangoes, bananas, lime, and dairy-free milk (your choice, and you can use regular if you prefer).
Use full-fat coconut milk for higher caloric content. Or throw in some Greek yogurt if you want it thicker.
That said, nut milk is an excellent choice for added protein.
How does a creamy and decadent smoothie sound? Yep, I didn’t think that would take much convincing.
Peanut butter and avocado make it super creamy. So creamy, in fact, you’ll need some milk to thin it out.
Sweetened with dates and spiced with cinnamon, it’s flavored the natural way. And it’s got dark chocolate with whipped cream on top!
If you want the most indulgent high-calorie smoothie around, look no further than this weight gain secret.
A tall frozen glass has a whopping 1000 calories! That’s almost half the amount of calories most adults need in a day.
It’s chocolatey, packed with protein, and dairy-free. It also cleverly disguises some leafy greens.
Strawberry and banana smoothies are a classic that you can easily give a calorie boost.
Adding in milk and peanut butter will up the total to 270 calories.
Need more? Use full-fat milk.
You can also turn this into a dairy-free version with coconut or nut milk.
Getting certain kids to eat can be a major challenge.
But there is one trick you can use to make life a little easier: this peanut butter and banana smoothie.
Both are pretty high in calories already, and if you add whole milk, you’ll boost that even more.
Plus, you can add a scoop of protein powder if you’re concerned about their nutrient intake.
Raise your hand if you love Smoothie King’s Peanut Plus. Me too!
The combination of peanut butter, protein powder, bananas, and dates gives you a ton of energy.
Plus, it’s got chocolate!
I lean on this often as my morning meal. Although, I find it works especially well for a quick lunch when you’re short on time.
So skip the long Smoothie King line and make this at home.
Make this your daily smoothie, and you’re sure to gain weight in no time. This plant-based drink has 664 calories per serving.
How’s that possible with a vegan recipe? It’s easier than you think.
You’ll use a scoop of vegan protein, frozen fruit, pineapple juice, and coconut milk. Just be sure the protein isn’t diet!
For an extra special tropical twist, add coconut flakes.
If you happen to be a pineapple fanatic, you’ll love this one as well.
It’s a frozen blend of pineapple, bananas, Greek yogurt, honey, and sweetened condensed milk.
The last one is a high-calorie food. So use it in any of the other smoothies to give them an additional caloric boost.
It also gives you plenty of sweetness, so don’t forget to nix the other sweeteners if you use it.
No time for breakfast? No worries. Fix this creamy, fruity, thick, and scrummy smoothie up in a jiff.
You’ll love the decadent combo of raspberries with peanut butter. It seriously tastes like dessert in a glass!
If you prefer raspberries with chocolate, add some chocolate protein powder too.
‘Tofu’ and ‘smoothie’ are not synonymous with one another. Once you try this drink, though, you’ll soon think otherwise.
Tofu is rich in plant protein and neutral in flavor, making it a terrific thickening agent for smoothies.
To ensure it’s silky smooth, ensure you get silken tofu – not firm. If you use the latter, your smoothie will be lumpy.
Flavor it up with juicy blueberries, bananas, and honey. Then use your choice of milk to make it liquid.
Add this 425-calorie smoothie to the rotation, and you’ll soon see results.
12. Avocado Smoothie
Avocados are a super smart way to add more calories to your morning smoothie.
A single ounce contains about 50 calories. That’s about 250 calories in a medium avocado.
Plus, they’re very creamy and taste like nature’s butter. So you get all that and more in this powerhouse smoothie!
Packed with antioxidants, healthy fats, and whole foods, this avocado smoothie is the complete package.
13. PB&J Smoothie
Experts say you should replenish your body with carbs and protein immediately after a workout. It’s crucial for muscle building and proper nutrition.
So what better way to do just that than with a post-workout PB&J smoothie?
The combination of strawberries, raspberries, and dates tastes like jam. Now all you need now is a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter.
One serving has about 420 calories and 11 grams of protein. As for the carbs, it’s got more than you’d expect – 65 grams!
This healthy smoothie is perfect for summer!
Refreshing and fruity, it’s full of antioxidants and electrolytes. That also makes it a smart choice for a post-workout meal.
Like all the others, it’s super simple too. Combine all your ingredients in a blender and let the appliance do its thing.
For a thicker smoothie, toss a few ice cubes or choose frozen berries.
Fall is a fabulous time to fill your smoothies with seasonal ingredients like apples and cinnamon.
That duo makes every sip dreamy and dessert-like without all the unwanted sugar.
