Get inspired by these 12 Healthy Smoothie Recipes to include leafy greens or vegetables into every one of your meals. These delicious smoothies are great for breakfast, lunch, snack or workout recovery!
Incorporating smoothies into your daily routine is a fantastic way to ensure you get a daily dose of essential nutrients, vitamins and fiber. Smoothies are also a lot of fun!
To avoid getting into a smoothie rut, I compiled 12 of the best healthy smoothie recipes with leafy greens and vegetables. This list should keep things interesting in the liquid meal department.
Healthy can be a much debated term with very differing definitions. In our family we don’t follow one specific diet. We don’t eat exclusively vegan, paleo, or low-carb. However, we try to eat real (non-processed), nutrient-rich food as much as possible.
I think we can all agree, no matter what diet you follow and what you consider healthy, we all can use more vegetables! I love the concept of ‘half your plate’ – at every meal, half of the plate should consist of fruits and vegetables.
No problem, at least for lunch and breakfast. If you are used to a regular Western breakfast however, incorporating vegetables into the first meal of the day may be a challenge. Smoothies are a perfect solution. You can blend up vegetables together with delicious fruit, and you’ll never even taste any vegetables.
To give you more guidance and inspiration, I collected the best healthy smoothie recipes from Leelalicious and from fellow food blogger friends.
