My Morning Smoothie Recipes

My Morning Smoothie Recipes

So, with my brand new morning routine and my very exciting new blender (I am using the Oster 1200 Pro, you can find it here) I have been trying out lots of healthy new smoothie recipes and I decided, after a fair amount of trial and error, that I would share some of the successful combinations with you.

 

Typically I am a high protein and low carb kind of girl so I go easy(ish) on the fruit and add protein powder, but I’ve added some variations with more fruit if you like your smoothies a little sweeter.

 

:: Turn up the Beet:

I love Beetroot smoothies, it really feels healthy and the pretty pink drink is an added bonus. You can use raw or roasted beets (but let’s face it, who has time to roast them…) 

 

1 small beet, peeled, trimmed and chopped

1 stalk of celery, roughly chopped

1″ piece of ginger root, peeled and chopped

1 small carrot, peeled, trimmed and chopped

1/2 cup carrot juice (or orange juice if you can’t get carrot)

1/2 cup water

Juice of 1/2 a lemon

1 scoop of protein powder (I use an unflavored egg-white protein)

 

:: Refresh-mint:

As the name suggests this smoothie is super refreshing with the cool mint and sharp lime-y flavor. (I leave the skins on the apple and cucumber for less prep and clean up extra fiber.) 

 

1/2 Granny Smith Apple, cored and chopped

3 sprigs of mint

1/4 cucumber, roughly chopped

1 stalk of celery, roughly chopped

Juice of 1 lime

1 cup water

1 scoop of protein powder

 

:: Beet, drink and be merry:

 

Allegedly this smoothie combo is recommended for lowering blood pressure (which is exactly what I need). The delicious taste is an added bonus.

 

1 small beet, peeled, trimmed and chopped

1/2 Granny Smith Apple, cored and chopped

1 stalk of celery, roughly chopped

1/4 cucumber, roughly chopped

1″ piece of ginger root, peeled and chopped

1 cup of water

1 scoop of protein powder

 

:: I’ve got a lovely pair of coconuts:

This is probably one of the quickest and easiest smoothies since nothing needs peeling and chopping – you can just throw it all in! (Note that this is also the sweetest smoothie, read: highest in natural sugars and carbs)

 

1 1/2 cups coconut water

1/2 cup coconut milk

Handful of fresh spinach

Handful of blueberries

Handful of almonds

1 scoop of protein powder

 

I’ll be sure to update you as I continue my flavor experimentation (if you don’t move fast enough in my kitchen these days you get blended) but if you guys have any tasty suggestions please let me know!

 

PS. I am currently still using my blender for good, not evil… but rest assured there will (almost certainly) be blended cocktail recipes coming very soon! 🙂
