10 Favorite Smoothie Recipes

January 4, 2013 by Ali

Happy, happy new year to everyone! Hope that your 2013 is off to a fabulous start!

In honor of the Smoothie Maker Gift Set Giveaway that we have going on this week, and because I just returned home from a carb-loading trip in Europe and am craving some lighter meals, I thought it would be fun to do a smoothie recipe roundup!

Smoothies are without a doubt one of my favorite healthy meal (or snack) options. They are quick, tasty, good for you, and easy to make year-round with fresh or frozen produce. And it seems like there are always new ideas popping up everywhere for extra things you can add to make them all the healthier (hidden greens like spinach, all sorts of seeds like chia/flax/wheat germ, fresh ginger, etc. come to mind).

So here are 10 of my favorites from the blog. Hope you enjoy! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway which includes a rockin’ Blendtec amongst other great finds!
