Ruby Red Grapefruit Smoothie with Spinach

Ruby Red Grapefruit Smoothie with Spinach

Adding the stevia for sweetness is optional because the kiwi and bananas provide their own sweet flavor to counter the tart flavor of the grapefruit. (This smoothie recipe was selected to be on the 7 Smoothie Recipes for a Healthy Week) Ingredients 1 red grapefruit (peeled and deseeded) 1 kiwi 1 tablespoon ground flax seed 2 bananas […]

Broccoli and Blueberry Smoothie

Broccoli Blueberry Smoothie with Yogurt

I have never made a smoothie with broccoli and blueberries specifically, but I have throw in some broccoli florets when making a smoothie every now and then. Quite possibly one of my smoothies had blueberries but I don’t remember for sure. I have been making a habit of adding vegetables at the last minute to […]


Winter Smoothie for Staying Healthy with a Pinch of Cayenne

Winter is almost officially here (Dec. 21) and the cold and flu season is rapidly approaching. And while we love winter smoothies that give you wonderful aromas and great flavors reminding you of nostalgic tastes such as the Merry Christmas Smoothie, Santa’s Smoothie and the Eggnog Smoothie, we felt a more healthful choice was better […]

Healthy Broccoli Smoothie

Healthy Broccoli & Spinach Smoothie with Apple

Broccoli is one of the best foods that mother nature makes. So it belongs in a smoothie on principal alone. And even though many people claim to hate the taste of broccoli (thanks, President Bush) it is very easily hidden in a smoothie. And if you can’t taste it, you still get the healthy benefits […]


Green Spinach Smoothie Recipe with Fruit

If you’re looking for a healthy smoothie, this is it!  It’s not a super sweet smoothie but it’s really good.  If you want it a bit sweeter just add more pineapple juice or orange juice. To be honest, I had heard of people putting spinach in their smoothies for a while now but had never […]


Green Julius Smoothie Recipe

This submission isn’t a smoothie recipe I have tried. And I’m not the biggest fan of green smoothies – usually not sweet enough for my tastes, but the health benefits of green smoothies can’t be ignored. Please let me know if you try this one. I am very curious how the parsley would taste. That’s […]


Spiced Carrot Smoothie

I’m not a big fan of vegetable smoothies, which is obviously a hang-up I need to overcome. So I am trying to include more vegetable smoothies on, and what sweeter vegetable is there to start with than the delicious carrot. Here is a smoothie recipe for a spiced carrot smoothie. 1/2 cup apple juice […]


Green Smoothie Popsicle

You don’t always have to drink a smoothie – they also can make great frozen treats such as sorbets and yes, smoothie Popsicles. Are you looking for a way to get some good greens in your diet or looking for a way to sneak some spinach into your child’s meals? Well, what could be better […]


Strawberry Peach Carrot Smoothie

Next time, I think I’d omit the yogurt in favor of a banana (not a big fan of yogurt’s tanginess in smoothies) and add an extra carrot for sweetness (this wasn’t unsweet, which is why I didn’t add agave nectar, but I figure an extra carrot for sweetness is still a sneaky way of getting […]


Berry Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

While just about all smoothies are packed with vitamins since their ingredients are usually fruits and vegetables, there are some healthy smoothies that are healthier and more rich in vitamins than others. This is one of the best healthy smoothies I have come across and its taste can’t be beat. I usually prefer frozen fruit […]


Healthy Green Coconut Smoothie

I have been experimenting more with coconut oil and I think I like it. So you may see a few more coconut oil smoothies in the future. It isn’t a staple for most kitchens, but maybe it should be. Coconut oil, said to be “healthiest oil on earth” is extremely good for for you (read […]


Ginger Winter Green Spinach Smoothie

We are all trying to eat better, especially as we get older. And we are all getting older, some a little faster than others. ;-) With my own age creeping ever higher I have been exploring more green smoothies and found one from Victoria Boutenko from Raw Family and wish to share it with you. […]

Mango Spinach Smoothie

Mango Spinach Smoothie Recipe

I love mango in a smoothie and adding pineapple makes for one of my favorite flavor combos. So it tastes good, but adding spinach makes it a green smoothie and that makes it healthier. Other than broccoli (another sneaky favorite addition), I love adding spinach to my smoothies. It is a very simple way to […]

Berry, Berry Good Smoothie

This is a fun smoothie packed with everything. Adding a carrot may sound odd, but you’ll hardly taste it and the extra vitamins will do you good. Try it without the carrot if vegetables offend you. ;-) Ingredients: 1/2 raspberries 1/2 cup strawberries 1/2 cup blueberries 1 cup 2% milk 1 cup apple juice (unsweetened) […]
