My Mom used to make my sister and I smoothies for breakfast quite frequently. They were usually a combination of almond milk, frozen berries, bananas, and bee pollen. It was good, but it lacked pizzazz! Now, I try to get creative with smoothies to get me excited to wake up in the morning to enjoy a nutrient-dense cup ‘o goodness.

One of my favorite things to do is to transform a boring cup of fruit and protein into my favorite ice cream flavors, trying my hand at making it taste like cheesecake, muffins, or even pie! Slurp it up with a straw, eat it out of a bowl, or drink out of a mug; whatever your fancy, a creatively infused smoothie will never disappoint.

1. Banana Bread Super foods Smoothie

Support a healthy mind with this super foods smoothie packed with banana, fresh vanilla, quinoa, flax oil and raw walnuts.

2. Apple Pie Green Smoothie

Treat your taste buds with apple pie in the morning! Instead of using almond milk with this smoothie, I opted for water with 1 tbsp walnuts to increase the fiber and healthy fats in this breakfast treat! The carbohydrate count is higher than my average smoothie, making it a great snack before an intense workout or highly stressful day.

3. Sleepy Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

Strawberries, lemon juice, chia, and oats, soaked overnight to thicken before blending and enjoying in a bowl.

4. Green Energy Smoothies

6 simple ingredients make up this sweet and delicious smoothie. You can pack it full of veg and no one will know!

5. Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

Thick, sweet and delicious mint chocolate chip smoothie with no extracts or artificial flavors.

6. Blushing Apple Smoothie

Refreshing dairy-free smoothie filled with cherries, raspberries and chia seed. You wont even taste the veggies!

7. Sleepy Blueberry Muffin Smoothie

What’s better than eating a muffin? DRINKING a muffin! All measuring and preparation is done the night before you enjoy this delectable breakfast so you can still start your day off right and get to sleep in for a couple of minutes.

8. Sleepy Raspberry Lemon Poppy Seed Smoothie

A lemon poppy seed muffin breakfast in glass!

9. Energy Smoothies

Prepare these smoothies the night before for quick smoothie making. Great for leftover fruits and veg that you need to clean your fridge of. Just throw it in and hope for the best!

10. Sleepy Banana Muffin Smoothie

The very first smoothie posted on the blog. All measuring and preparation is done the night before you enjoy this delectable breakfast.

11. Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

This smoothie is creamy and light. Not only will it add extra fiber to your day, but having pumpkin in the morning will keep you fuller, longer!

12. Sleepy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Smoothie

Chocolate oat goodness served up in a bowl with almond butter, chia seeds, and cacao nibs.

13. Classic Green Smoothie

This classic green smoothie will give you 44% of your daily recommended intake of calcium!

14. Caramel Apple Green Smoothie

This smoothie is everything I imaged it would be. It’s sweet, caramel-like and just down-right tasty.

15. Key Lime Pie Green Smoothie

Vegan and nut-free key lime green smoothie under 300 calories. Tastes just like pie!

16. Ultra Green Smoothie

The combination of avocado and banana makes this green smoothie as creamy as can be!

17. Superwoman Green Smoothie

This green smoothie is packing some serious superfood power! Cacao – whose flavanoids help keep your heart healthy, spirulina – that’s rich in antioxidants and fantastic for your cellular health, and spinach – which is proven to lower inflammation. It’s all there, and packed into a delicious chocolatey cup!

18. Chocolate Covered Raspberry Green Smoothie

Did you know that raspberries have the highest amount of fiber per serving than any of the other berries? And that beginning your day with a serving of raw, unprocessed cacao that will help to balance your mood, first thing? What’s not to love about this smoothie?!

Mmmm all delicious!! I still have yet to try the caramel apple one but thanks for the reminder. Any smoothies that taste like cakes and muffins are perfectly A-OK by me! :)

It must be smoothie day – I did a (smaller) list on my blog. I LOVE the idea of banana bread smoothies (quinoa in it?! awesome), and of the sleepy smoothie since I’m forever running late. I assume all of these would be good with a scoop of protein powder, too?

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

Heck ya, add the protein powder in there! I usually do the same after the fact or when I make the recipe for a second time.

I cant wait to try some of these!

I just opened up this post and my boyfriend from behind me said “Wow – that is some beautiful photography”. Had to pass along the compliment!

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

Aw, thanks Erica. Tell him I really appreciate that compliment!

I know one or two of these smoothie recipes by heart now! Thanks again for introducing me to the world of smoothies for breakfast. Tonight, my 2-year old flat-out refused her dinner, so I whipped up a quick smoothie full of protein and other goodness. She guzzled it down and went to bed fed and happy!

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

That’s a great strategy that I’ve heard many parents use, brilliant. Glad you like the recipes, Josie!

That pumpkin spice smoothie made me drool a little bit… definitely on the to try list.

Love your vegan recipes!!! My parents are asians, which means they don’t even really know what a smoothie is! This list would be great to introduce them how to make healthy & delicious smoothies :)

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

You know, I didn’t know that Asians wouldn’t know what a smoothie was! Very interesting. Yes, you must introduce them to the way of the smoothie :)

Stephanie

Haha, the younger generations know them, but smoothies are rarely enjoyed by older people. If I told my dad I was having a green smoothie for breakfast, they would say ” you need warm, cooked rice!!!” and panick. Lol!

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

So interested ha! Kevin’s mom would say the same thing, ‘have schnitzel, not smoothies!’

Mikelle @ Zen Thyroid

So when is your first cookbook coming out???????

Reply

Leanne (Healthful Pursuit)

I would absolutely love to write a cookbook! Maybe one of these days :)

Morgaine Fey

I can say that every single one of these recipes is the ABSOLUTE BOMB. I have loved them all AND even got my parents hooked (after the obligatory crunchy granola barefoot hut vegan jokes). I would buy the heck out of your cook book, and save my phone from recipe splatters as I look the food up on it!!!

Seriously, I wish I lived near you so I could employee you as a nutritionist.

Also, love your blog–never stop what you do!!

Oh my goodness! So many amazing smoothies here I don’t know where to start… but Im thinking mint chip for tomorrow’s breaky… that might change by the morning. The banana muffin smoothie really caught me eye too!

These all look amazing – can’t wait to try them all! What can I use in the strawberry cheesecake instead of oats?

You can leave them out completely!

Hey, I was just wondering, is 1 cup equal to about 1/2 pint?
Can’t wait to try some of these they look so delicious!

Reply

Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit)

It sure does! Enjoy, Miriam!

Kammie @ Sensual Appeal

It should be fun to buy a new car! Driving a new car is
such a great experience, and purchasing the car should be fun
as well. A lot of people would rather skip the whole purchasing process.
Keep the stress to a minimum using these tips.

So, I’m wondering.
It says “18 Healthy Vegan Smoothies” and I just read “HONEY”, so, I guess they’re vegetarian or was it a mistake?

Reply

Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit)

Hi Ixell – thanks for catching that! You can use coconut nectar instead. I’ve updated the recipe to reflect :)

Hey Leann–

These look amazing!

Which extractor do you recommend?

Many thanks!

Reply

Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit)

Hi Jan! Do you mean… blender? If so, I have a vitamix ;)

Reply

Lisa @ Best Food Processor

I think that vitamix is a great blender. i have one too! :)

I have allergies to milk, nuts, wheat and eggs… therefore I’m extremely nervous..because of all my allergies, consistency matters, like the thought of bananas in a smoothy makes me want to gag. SORRY! nonetheless, I’m 50lbs overweight and I think it’s because I don’t eat breakfast and often won’t eat until 1-2 pm (often snacking on pepperoni throughout my morning, as that is the only thing I can stomach…please help…as I write this with a headache….

Hi Leanne, I’m very excited to try all of these recipes. I made the chocolate cookie dough one last night and one, mine came out more on the liquidy side and not as dark. I used steel cut oats, will that make a difference in the consistency?

Reply

Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit)

Hi Cynthia – could have been the oats. Were they broken down completely by your blender?
