Smoothies, Smoothies, Smoothies! {Recipes}

Our big family of 5 loves, love smoothies! We drink them at least once or twice a day, they are great snacks of you can power pack them and make them full meal replacement. So delish and full of nutrients.

Are your days busy? I know ours are at times. Or do you not have time to prepare or make a meal sometimes? I know this is our story as well many days. We love to pack our smoothies with goodness. When the kids help, its they love experimenting with new flavors. In the morning when we need more carbs, protein, and fiber to start our engine, we put a lot more in them. We usually juice if were not wanting more then just fruit/veggies. When your replacing a meal you also need more then just blended up fruit, liquid or juice. We like to use regular fruit smoothies or juicing as snacks, drinks, or fillers since they are so easy to make. These recipes have more in them giving your body what it needs in the morning or if you have to skip a homemade meal. These things are great and are blender is always mixing up so good ones for us. They are not time consuming and they can even satisfy those sweet tooth cravings. So lets get started!!

1-2 scoop of powders
1/2 cups of carbs/fiber
1/4 to 1/3 cup of Creaminess (for bananas its about a half a one)

However much extras you want


Step 1. Turn blender on very medium-low and mix liquid, protein, spices, powders, carbs/fiber, and creaminess. Blend until well mixed.

Step 2. Turn your blender up to medium high and add your greens and extras here.

Step 3. Add your fruit combinations and place lid on your blender and turn up to extra high. Some blenders have a tamper where you can feed the fruit into the blade more and if so use that to make it smooth.

Step 4. Blend it it for about 30-45 seconds on extra high until everything this is smooth and creamy.

Serve and Enjoy!


–You will need a high speed blender to make most of these.
–Make sure you blend your carb/fiber up good so it not too grainy.

–With any kind of protein we usually just buy vanilla since you can add chocolate flavor to it.

–You can pick more then one in these categories or less. You don’t have to use 1 thing in each either, just make sure you at least have liquid, protein, carb/fiber, and fruit. Don’t be shy though. Think of your favorite things in each category and make your own.
–If you want to add more liquid then just make it to the consistency that you like it. Usually we just add more water if its too thick.

–We like to freeze and cut up bananas, apples, grapes, ect –or just any kind of fruit a head of time because it works so much better. If some fruit is going bad then freeze it and it makes for great shakes.
–You don’t have to but bananas work good with out freezing them as well especially if you are using them for creaminess. Banana is usually a signature and can go with anything…strawberry banana, blueberry banana, kiwi banana, you get the drift.

–The measurements above when you make them are just “ball park ranges” so if you feel you need more or less then just make it to your liking.
