4 Quick and Easy Healthy Smoothie Recipes

Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are one of my favorite treats. I’ll choose them over ice cream, popsicles or frozen yogurt any day. Even my family has taken notice because I regularly get blenders as christmas gifts (in case my family is reading this, I wouldn’t mind a travel sized blender). But what’s not to like about smoothies? They’re perfect as breakfast, after a work out, on the go or just to cool off a little on a hot day. As much as I make smoothies you would think I would be a little more creative but to be honest I usually just stick to a handful of  tried and true recipes. Tonight I decided to shake things up a little and found some great, nutritious recipes from Fitness Magazine.

BananaKiwiSmoothie

Banana and Kiwi Smoothie
The fuzzy kiwi fruit may be small in size, but talk about a triple threat. It’s loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants, which keep skin firm, promote healthy bones and teeth, and protect you from cancer and heart disease.

Whipped Strawberry Lemonade
89 Calories and 100% of my daily Vitamin C – need I say more?
Nutrition facts: 89 calories, 0g fat, 23g carbohydrate, 2g fiber, 1g protein

 

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie
Not sure I would like this one but the carbs and protein would be great for a pre-workout breakfast!
Nutrition facts: 303 calories, 9g fat, 45g carbohydrate, 4g fiber, 16g protein

StrawberryBananaFlaxSmoothie

Strawberry, Banana & Flax Smoothie
Flaxseed is a great way to increase your intake of omega-3s.
