Fruit and Vegetable Smoothie Recipes


Spinach around a green smoothieWell, you guys have been waiting for smoothie recipes, these are easy smoothie recipes that anyone can make. They are vegan, but if you want to use milk instead of almond milk, you can make them vegetarian. Since I reviewed blenders on the last page, it was really time to get to the smoothies! No matter what type smoothie you are making, there is an order of ingredients you should follow for it to turn out properly and not to jam up your blender. First you put in 1/2 or all of your liquid, I recommend 1/2 because you may not need it all, next put in soft, light, fruits or vegetables, next add protein or greens powder or any super food, such as chia, flax, or hemp seeds, acia or goji berries, almond or peanut butter, then add your leafy greens making sure they are torn in half and fit in the blender, next add anything frozen and more liquid. Start your blender on low then raise the speed to high. Add more liquid if it’s too thick. That’s why I don’t put it all in to begin with, every time I make a smoothie it turns out a little differently.ย

  1. How could anyone resist these smoothies? I simply love avocado shakes! Have you tried them with chocolate? It’s really yummy! Going to try out the Strawberry Cocoanuts too, I felt an urge for it just by looking at your picture ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hey Moon!
      I’m glad you found a smoothie recipe you like ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, I love adding raw cocoa to anything and think it makes everything amazing! I had to be careful with the smoothies because I would add raw cocoa and raw almond butter to every single one if it were up to me, but I know that’s not healthy and other people do not think chocolate, almond butter, kale sounds yummy. lol Enjoy your smoothie!

    1. Hey Mike!
      Thank you so much, it is a work in progress, but many hours have been spent on the site so it’s nice to hear someone say it looks nice ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love that you made sure the FIRST thing you mention was the order of ingredients — Thank you for that! I’m a newbie on the healthy shake scene, and generally this information is not provided… leaving me with a mess! Not the way to go when I’m still on the fence about it in the first place lol I’m talking myself into trying one of your recipes including Kale .. as I literally have NEVER tried it before and it’s all the rave where “super foods” are concerned… maybe you’ll make a believer out of me after all!

    1. Hey Courtney,
      I’m glad you found some useful information about smoothies, yes the order is super important and not many sites mention a word about it! When I first became vegan, I got cookbooks and the recipes made me feel stupid they all had ingredients I had never heard of, no explanation of what they were or how to prepare them, expensive ingredients at that! Plus, the recipes were all at least 2 hours from prep until finish. That’s nice for a holiday, but not a daily basis, especially when my daughter was younger, I’m her only parent (not complaining, just saying life has been a little crazy, a lot. lol). That’s one of the main reasons I started this site, to help people who want to eat healthy, become vegetarian, vegan, or have meatless Monday, whatever the case may be. I want everyone to feel welcome and I don’t want to use a bunch of crazy expensive ingredients that will just scare people away! Oh, if you are just starting out with kale in smoothies, you may want to start with a smaller portion at first and work your way up. It’s not bad, but it is something you definitely have to adjust to a little ๐Ÿ™‚ If you make anything, come back and let me know how it turn out!

  3. I love fruits and vegetables, fruits more than vegetables, don’t tell the vegetables that though. These are all great recipes that I will defiantly be trying out in the future, thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so happy to hear that you like the recipes ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know how they turn out. I’m always looking for reader feedback. Don’t worry, I won’t tell, I know how grumpy veggies can get, geez! But seriously, thank you and i hope you enjoy!

  4. Ooh Keli, these sound and look deeeevine!! You have inspired me!! I never dreamt of adding avo or swiss chard or kale to smoothies. I’ve only ventured as far as fruit, honey, yoghurt (not vegan I know), peanut butter and nuts. Been thinking of trying nutella instead of peanut butter in almond milk with bananas. Have you tried any nutella recipes yet… oh, nutella’s not vegan, silly me. Is there s vegan alternative to nutella?

    1. Hey Lauren!
      I’m not sure if there is a Vegan Nutella, but that would be yummy! I loved Nutella and still love Hazelnuts. I do put raw Cocoa powder in my smoothies sometimes. I would like to every day, but do not let myself. lol I’m going to research Vegan Nutella because it seems like I saw something recently, but I can’t find it in my notes. Haha, my three notebooks of notes! If I find anything I’ll let you know ๐Ÿ™‚ Starting out you may want to add kale a little at the time to your smoothies because it has a little bite to it, but over time it gets better, just add some agave nectar or you can add honey ๐Ÿ™‚ Try it out, you won’t regret it!
