Homemade smoothies–particularly green smoothies–are a great breakfast replacer that can fill you up and start the day off right. I aim to drink at least one homemade smoothie or juice each day. Here are six great smoothie recipes to try:
Carrot Cake Smoothie via Lexie’s Kitchen – I loved this smoothie so much that I made it twice this week. I modified it by adding 1/2 a papaya, omitting the sweetener and ice, and juicing the ingredients before blending, but I’m sure it’s wonderful as is.
Chocolate Black Bean Banana Smoothie via Waking up Vegan – This one sounds oddly delicious. It was on the agenda to make for breakfast tomorrow, until I realized that I used up the last of my banana today.
Tropical Green Smoothie via Girl Cooks World – Raw food coach Karen Knowler has been advocating the mango-spinach combination in smoothies for years, and this recipe kicks it up a notch or two with the addition of pineapple and lime.
Peter Rabbit’s Smoothie via Lexie’s Kitchen – I have never acquired a taste for parsley, but this sounds like a great way to sneak some into my diet. It’s on my to-make list (once I actually make myself pick up parsley from the market!)
Banana, Almond Milk and Date Smoothie via Whole Living – While this is the least alkaline of the smoothies featured, it is undeniably delicious. I tried it yesterday and am craving it today.
What are your favorite smoothie combinations? Which of these might you try first?
