Quick Smoothie Recipes to Keep You Full and Energized

I pretty much have a smoothie for breakfast every morning. Although I love berries, I don’t typically enjoy the standard berry smoothie. So, through researching recipes, adding and removing ingredients, and trial and error, I’ve come up with three go-to smoothies that give me energy in the morning and help keep me full until lunch.

 Banana, PB, & OJ Smoothie

I know this one might sound weird, but I’m telling you it tastes delicious—tangy, smooth, and just a little sweet. Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

– 1 ripe banana

– 1 cup almond milk (You can use vanilla almond milk for a sweeter smoothie. You can substitute almond milk with other type of milk.)

– 2 tbsp peanut butter (I have not tried this smoothie with another type of nut-free butter, but for those of you with a nut allergy it’s worth giving it a try!)

– 2 tbsp orange juice

– 1 handful of greens of your choice (I mostly use spinach or kale, depending on what I have on hand)

– 3-4 cubes of ice (You don’t need ice if you slice and freeze the banana the night before)

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth.

Blueberry Chocolate Smoothie

While I can’t say this tastes exactly like a chocolate milkshake, it’s certainly a nice alternative for when you’re craving chocolate but are trying to stay healthy! Here’s what you’ll need:

– 1 cup frozen blueberries

– 1 cup almond milk (You can substitute with other type of milk)

– 1-2 tbsp raw honey

– 1-2 tbsp natural unsweetened cocoa powder

– 2 handfuls of spinach

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth. (You may need to add more milk if the smooth begins to become stuck in the blender.)

 Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Say hello to Thanksgiving anytime of the year! You’ll need:

– ¼ cup canned pumpkin

– 1 banana

– ¾-1 cup almond milk (You can substitute with other type of milk)

– 1 tsp vanilla extract

– ½ tsp cinnamon

– ¼ tsp nutmeg

– OPTIONAL: Handful of quick oats (These don’t need to be cooked. They’ll give your smoothie more texture and more flavor.)

– 3-4 cubes of ice (You don’t need ice if you slice and freeze the banana the night before)

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth.

Keep in mind that the recipes I’ve provided are guides. Add or remove ingredients according to your preferences. If you’ve got any go-to smoothie recipes, feel free to post them below! Enjoy these quick smoothie recipes.
