3 Yummy Smoothie Recipes to Boost Your Day


Get inspired to fuel your body with delicious, healthy, nutrition-packed smoothies!! Loaded with protein, fiber, greens, healthy fats, and yummy flavors, these smoothies are a quick (and portable) way to boost your energy, regulate your blood sugar, and get those veggies.

Note: all recipes make 1 serving


Snickerdoodle Tahini Date Smoothie


Creamy snickerdoodle tahini date smoothie made in just 10 minutes with no banana! This delicious, vegan date smoothie has Medjool dates, almond milk, cauliflower, tahini, vanilla and cinnamon for a wonderful flavor that tastes just like your favorite snickerdoodle cookie. Options to add extra protein and your favorite mix-ins.

Ingredients

For the date smoothie:

3 pitted large Medjool dates (¼ cup packed pitted Medjool dates)

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or sub light coconut milk), plus more to thin smoothie if necessary

¾ cup frozen cauliflower

1 cup baby spinach

1 tablespoon tahini

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Optional smoothie add-ins:

1 tablespoon cacao powder

1 scoop your favorite protein powder

1 tablespoon flaxseed meal

¼ cup gluten free rolled oats


Instructions

  1. First soak your pitted dates in 1 cup of very warm water for at least 5 minutes. This will help them soften up and perfect for blending. While the dates are soaking you can get all your other ingredients out, measured and ready.

  2. Next add all ingredients to a high powered blender: pitted dates, almond milk, cauliflower, tahini, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Feel free to add any optional add-ins to your smoothie if you’d like. Blend until smooth, adding more almond milk to thin, if necessary. Pour into a glass and enjoy! Serves 1. Feel free to double the recipe to serve 2.


Recipe Notes Feel free to sub any kind of nut butter you’d like for the tahini, although, I think tahini makes a world of difference. Peanut butter would also be amazing.



Carrot Cake Smoothie


Delicious, healthy carrot cake smoothie made with wholesome ingredients like raw carrots, banana, pineapple, creamy coconut milk, Greek yogurt, and plenty of cozy spices. This creamy, protein-packed carrot cake smoothie makes the perfect breakfast or post-workout snack!

Ingredients

1 large raw carrot, sliced (or shred if you don’t have a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix)

1 frozen medium ripe banana

½ cup frozen pineapple chunks

¾ cup light coconut milk, plus more if necessary (use any milk you'd like)

¼ cup plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup gluten free oats

1 tablespoon pecan butter or almond butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of nutmeg


Instructions

In a large high-powered blender, add in all ingredients and blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until all ingredients are well combined. If necessary, add in more almond milk to thin the smoothie. Makes 1 smoothie for a full meal. If you'd like this as a snack, this recipe will serve 2.


Recipe Notes Optional add-ins:

flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a little boost of fiber and minerals, and is especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply. Usually a tablespoon is plenty!

chia seeds: feel free to add in a tablespoon of chia seeds to your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.

hemp seeds: if you’ve been wondering what to do with those hemp seeds lurking in your cupboard, feel free to throw in a tablespoon into your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.

spinach: if you’re looking to get more greens in your smoothie, try adding a cup or two of raw or cooked spinach. You’ll never be able to taste it, but just know that it may change the color of your smoothie to brown depending on what other fruit you use.

protein: easily add more protein to a smoothie by adding 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder. I recommend Vital Protein collagen peptides or Bob’s Red Mill Plant Based Vanilla Protein Powder.

frozen cauliflower: feel free to throw in a cup of frozen cauliflower to thicken your smoothie even more and get extra veggies in. You won’t even be able to taste it!
