100 Natural Eating Smoothie Recipes

Unlike many recipes, smoothies do not have exact measurements. So while the recipes below are great starting points, you might want to tweak them to your desired consistency and taste.

Preparing a smoothie is quite simple. You just need to add the ingredients to a sturdy high-speed blender, one that can handle crushing ice, and blend until smooth. Garnish with fresh fruit, chocolate shavings, or your favorite topping. For this reason, we will not be including the instructions below.

Tips for making smoothies:
1. Using ice or frozen fruit will create a thicker consistency than using liquids – but beware, if you use ice, your smoothie may not have a creamy texture.
2. Make sure your ingredients are cut into small pieces. Blackberries, blueberries and raspberries are typically small enough as is; however, strawberries, cucumber and other fruits and veggies need to be chopped smaller.
3. Add the liquid first so it can help move your ingredients around.
4. If you’re after a sweet treat, use a fruit juice as they contain more natural sugar.
5. For a smoother treat, use milk, Greek yogurt or ice cream
6. Start by blending on a slow setting to get your ingredients moving. Then gradually increase the speed until fully blended.
7. Any liquid can be added including water, coffee & tea
8. Freeze juices, coffee, tea, etc into ice cubes so your smoothie isn’t watered down
9. Add interest by adding a dash of spice such as cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, mint, etc – but add a very small amount at a time
10. Boost the nutrition by adding ground flax seed, wheat germ, chia seeds, raw cacao, matcha, nut butters, and avocado, oatmeal and protein powders.
