Purple Superfoods Smoothie
Made with frozen blueberries, almond milk, raw cacao, and a touch of vanilla extract, this smoothies is as pretty as it is tasty (and healthy.)
Balanced Green Juice
We'll be honest: a random combination of greens does NOT guarantee a delicious juicing experience. One great way to ensure that you'll make a tasty drink is to strike a pleasing balance of flavors. A bit of sweetness, a bit of tang, a touch of gingery warmth, and a hint of sharpness, all rooted in a substantial, satisfying base. That's what you'll find in this recipe.
'Frozen Monkey' Coffee Chocolate Banana Smoothie
This delicious caffeinated concoction is inspired by a Tasti D Lite based drink at Hoboken NJ's now long-defunct Frozen Monkey cafe. But this froyo-free version is made with frozen bananas, milk or almond milk, raw cacao powder, sweet dates, and real espresso.
Tropical Green Juice
Wishing for a mid-winter vacation? This green juice is a bit of a tropical escape, made with fresh pineapple, mango, and lime, plus a pile of tender spinach.
Cherry Vanilla Almond Smoothie
This smoothie blitzes two cups of frozen cherries into a drink that's equally good for breakfast or dessert, despite using only fruit for sweetness. It's vegan, if you're into that sort of thing, but tastes like it might be packing a scoop of ice cream because of the vanilla and the slight creaminess that homemade almond milk contributes.
Gateway Green Smoothie
As the name suggests, this drink is a mellow, entry level substance that may lead to a future risk of consuming more hardcore versions of blended greens. The texture is smooth and creamy, and the flavor of spinach or sorrel is tamed with banana, pineapple, and mango, plus a little coconut oil.
This juice, with beets, carrots, ginger, apple, and clementine, is complex, sweet, and delicious—plus, it's a beautiful bright red color.
Root for Mint
You might have tried carrot juice before, but what about parsnips? Their sweet flavor is just the thing to complement fresh mint in this kale juice blend.
The Virtuous Mary
This savory smoothie includes whole celery stalks and tomatoes, plus tomato juice, shallot, and spicy fresh horseradish.
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Pumpkin purée isn't just for Thanksgiving—it's delicious in a smoothie with creamy frozen banana, almond milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
Fresh Watermelon and Cucumber Juice
Refreshing and tangy, this lightly flavored juice will keep you happily hydrated. It's made with cucumber, watermelon, fresh mint, and tangy lime.
Avocado Kefir Smoothie
This take on a green smoothie is buttery and delicious thanks to ripe avocado. The combination of avocado and tangy kefir lends the drink an especially thick texture. The zing of fresh ginger and the cooling qualities of mint help make this smoothie fresh.
Vegan Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie
This creamy take on strawberry lemonade is a great use for frozen strawberries, mixed with soy yogurt (or regular yogurt), fresh lemon, and a date for sweetness.
Lean Green Smoothie
Mango and ginger add a tropical twist to this arugula smoothie; you can use spinach if you prefer your green juice less peppery.
The Kale Mary
This alcohol-free Bloody Mary variation uses kale leaves and sweet grape or cherry tomatoes. A little soy sauce and horseradish adds savory flavor.
Mellow Cranberry Smoothie
Tangy cranberries and clementines add a pop of flavor to this smoothie, spiced with a touch of cinnamon.
