They’re lean and green, and if you play your cards right, these vegetable smoothie recipes are not so mean!
Vegetable smoothies may sound like a punishment.
But as long as you work with the proper fruit-to-veggie ratio, they taste like dessert.
Healthy veggies like spinach, kale, beets, and even celery fade away with the right fruit.
Whatever you’re craving, these vegetable smoothie recipes are sure to impress.
So fire up those blenders, and let’s get the day started on the right foot with these vegetable smoothie recipes!
Need a great morning pick-me-up? This detox smoothie will save the day.
It incorporates everything your body needs in the morning- greens, bananas for potassium, and an apple.
Because you know what they say about your daily dose of apples.
It might be electric green, but the sweet fruits and splash of honey expertly mask that spinach flavor.
The star of this smoothie show is cucumbers.
They’re relatively flavorless veggies but pack in so much nutritional goodness.
Cucumbers have high water content and vitamins A, B, and C.
Pair them with pineapple, greens, lime juice, and banana for a light and tropical flavor.
It’s a super light smoothie that’s refreshing and perfect for a hectic summer morning.
Why do green smoothies get all the praise?
If that green coloring is just a little off-putting, try this vibrant orange carrot, ginger, and turmeric smoothie instead.
For 4,000 years, Indians have used turmeric for medicinal purposes.
It’s anti-inflammatory, rich in antioxidants, fights free radicals, and even lowers cholesterol.
Healthy carrots and a zing from fresh ginger are an excellent way to start your morning.
Never underestimate the power of beets. They deliver vibrant red coloring to your smoothies, nutrition, and antioxidants.
This smoothie is super sweet with just a subtle tang from apple juice.
It also includes sweet strawberries, creamy bananas, and a hint of fresh mint.
It’s unlike any other smoothie on this list and worth a try!
A kale smoothie likely needs no introduction.
Kale is king when we look at the nutritional benefits of green veggies, and it belongs in a smoothie.
It may be electric green, but it doesn’t taste green.
With additions like creamy almond milk, Greek yogurt, and bananas, it’s deliciously creamy.
And to further combat the bright green flavors of kale, a little peanut butter and honey go a long way.
This is a wonderful place to start if you have always wanted to toss kale into a breakfast smoothie!
This green smoothie is kid-approved!
If you’re still deciding whether to toss greens in your morning smoothie, this recipe is worth a try.
It earns its green coloring from a serving of spinach, but all the extra fruit masks those green flavors.
Bright fruit like pineapple, mango, and banana overpowers any of those green flavors from spinach.
This smoothie also pairs well with a scoop of protein powder.
Smoothies don’t always have to be green.
This pumpkin pie smoothie is a great way to celebrate fall flavors without indulging in an entire pumpkin pie.
It earns its pumpkin flavor with pumpkin puree, pecan butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
If this smoothie doesn’t fire you up for apple picking, nothing will!
Sure, it may taste like a pumpkin pie, but free of excess sugar and empty calories.
It’s a great way to get yourself in the mood for fall festivities without guilt.
This is another fall-inspired smoothie recipe that packs all the flavors of autumn without the added calories.
Sweet potatoes are surprisingly nutritious, and adding banana, almond milk, Greek yogurt, and spices takes the flavors over the top.
It tastes like your grandma’s sweet potato pie, but it’s healthy for you.
With this smoothie, you won’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to indulge in sweet potato pie. Bonus points: it’s guilt-free!
Creamy zucchini doesn’t exactly make the mouth water.
However, those green flavors melt away when paired with bright blueberries, coconut milk, and cinnamon.
What I love most about this smoothie is that it’s insanely healthy.
With zucchini, celery, and spinach, it is a nutritional powerhouse.
While it’s brimming with greens, the coloring of the blueberries tames any green colors and flavors.
It’s so pretty, and the bright colors will surely wake you up on a rainy and dreary day.
The recipe title says creamy zucchini, but your tastebuds say peanut butter milkshake.
So, how can you transform zucchini into a peanut butter milkshake?
The answer is simple: peanut butter and bananas.
The flavor of zucchini is mild, so the flavors of the banana and peanut butter overpower and green flavors.
While it’s delightfully green, it doesn’t taste green. The creamy zucchini adds a peanut butter-like texture out of this world.
Is there anything more appetizing than the bright red coloring of this apple, ginger, and beet smoothie?
For a nutritional kick, it pairs beets, apples, ginger, cinnamon, carrots, and kale.
While it incorporates nutritional veggies, the fruit in this smoothie lends a gentle hint of sweetness.
The best part? It comes together in 10 minutes, making it the perfect healthy breakfast for a busy morning.
Malted chocolate and cauliflower? I know it sounds crazy, but these two ingredients make one killer smoothie.
Frozen cauliflower has the same texture as a frozen banana sans sugar.
It has a neutral flavor.
But it adds so much creaminess to this smoothie that you may ditch bananas in favor of cauliflower from here on out.
It tastes like a malted chocolate shake with chocolate protein powder, cacao nibs, and almond milk. Yes, please!
This delightfully creamy smoothie is both gluten-free and dairy-free.
It earns its decedent creaminess from cauliflower and oat milk. It’s thick, rich, and 100 percent nutritious.
It pairs creamed cauliflower with bright blueberries, oat milk, peanut butter, and banana.
Frozen veggies and bananas make this smoothie so creamy without needing ice cubes.
If you prefer thick and indulgent smoothies, this is the perfect recipe to keep you full until lunchtime.
When you think of smoothie greens, Swiss chard likely doesn’t come to mind.
It’s notoriously bitter, but using it in this tropical smoothie recipe helps cut down on the sweetness.
Bananas, mango, and shredded coconut make you feel like dipping your toes in the sand at a tropical beach.
They’re pretty sweet, so adding swiss chard help tame any overwhelming sweetness.
Here’s another unlikely smoothie addition: collard greens!
Using collard greens as a green base increases the nutritional content, making this smoothie rich and creamy.
They help tame the sweetness, but they aren’t as bitter as swiss chard or kale.
Think of collard greens as a stepping stone between spinach and kale.
This recipe mixes them with a creamy banana, vanilla yogurt, and orange juice.
It’s so light and refreshing and perfect for a hectic morning.
You likely scrolled right past this celery smoothie because celery isn’t your jam. If you are still with me? Good!
Even if you hate celery, it fades away in this delightfully light and bright morning smoothie.
Celery adds a tart and creamy consistency, and that green flavor fades away with tart apples, ginger, lemons, and bananas.
It’s bright and flavorful with just the right amount of sweetness. It’s pretty addictive.
This chai-spiced butternut squash smoothie is liquid gold in a world of green smoothies.
Seriously, it looks (and tastes) like liquid gold.
Butternut squash delivers massive fall-inspired flavors and is so rich and buttery.
Pair it with vanilla yogurt, bananas, coconut milk, and almond butter for added creaminess.
Toss in fall-inspired flavors like cinnamon, cardamom, ground ginger, and allspice to take things to the next level.
