Smoothies are one of the easiest meals to make while also offering a ton of daily vitamins and minerals. I love smoothies because you can eat a lot of greens without even noticing.
The simplest smoothies are the most delicious. Even better, you don’t need an expensive blender to make a great smoothie. This blender works great and is very affordable or you can get a Ninja for a little more. I find that the more expensive blenders are great for sauces or when you’re blending something like dates.

1. Salted Caramel Smoothie
My favorite protein powder is salted caramel flavored, so no surprise that this smoothie made it first on our list. This smoothie contains simple ingredients that you have around the house. This recipe does include dates so if you don’t have a high-powered blender, this blogger shares a great tip to soften the dates.
2. Mango Smoothie with Maca
One of my favorite fruits is mangos. I love this smoothie recipe because it’s extra healthy because of the maca. So not only does it taste delicious, but it packs a powerful punch first thing in the morning that will keep you energized throughout the day.
3. Avocado Smoothie with Pineapple and Ginger
This unique recipe calls for avocado, pineapple, and ginger, which you often don’t see in smoothies. This is a great smoothie recipe for people who prefer thicker, green smoothies. To make this smoothie taste even better, you can opt to add a superfood powder that contains probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
4. Pineapple Peach Smoothie
I recently added pineapple to a smoothie for the first time and I can’t believe I waited so long to try it. This is the perfect smoothie for a hot summer day to cool off. This recipe calls for coconut butter (not coconut oil!) so make sure to follow the recipe to create the perfect taste.
5. Pineapple Blueberry Smoothie
This vibrant purple smoothie is filled with antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, and only requires simple ingredients you probably already have in your house. This recipe calls for chia seeds which is such an easy way to get in those essential omega 3 fatty acids.
6. The Every Day Post Workout
This is the first smoothie on this list that includes apples, which I surprisingly don’t see in a lot of smoothie recipes. Apples are a high fiber fruit making this a great smoothie if you’re looking to add more fiber to your diet.

7. Frozen Hot Chocolate Oat Smoothie
This is the first smoothie on this list that includes chocolate. This recipe is exactly what you think it is – rich, thick, and will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. This recipe requires coconut cream which is such a great addition for any smoothie.
8. Healthy Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie
Are you a fan of cheesecake? If so, you’re going to love this strawberry cheesecake smoothie. This recipe also calls for coconut cream, which you know is my absolute favorite in recipes.
P.S. If you’re buying a blender, I recommend checking out Rakuten first. Rakuten is a cash back site that helps you earn money for doing your regular online shopping. So if you find a blender online, Rakuten may help you get cash back for your purchase.

This simple smoothie recipe only calls for 2 ingredients to create the perfect refreshing drink. Make sure to read the recipe for the helpful tips to make this smoothie even better. You can also use this recipe to create popsicles for the kids. Use this popsicle mold tray to make popsicles at home.
10. Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
The peanut butter banana smoothie is a classic. It’s a perfect combo and creates an amazingly delicious smoothie with only a few ingredients. I love how creamy and filling this recipe is, you must make it! Make this smoothie perfect by using a reusable jumbo straw. Straws seriously make such a difference when you’re drinking a smoothie.
11. Mango Blueberry Smoothie
Mango and blueberry are one of my favorite fruit combos for smoothies. This recipe only calls for 4 ingredients (and water) and is one of the easiest smoothies to make on this list. Make this smoothie even better by adding a green superfood powder that makes it even easier to get those necessary daily nutrients.
12. Kiwi Banana Smoothie
This is the first smoothie on this list that calls for kiwi. I’ve never made a smoothie with kiwi, and frankly rarely buy kiwi, but this recipe inspired me to try it out. Have you tried a kiwi smoothie before? Tell me in the comments!
