10 Favorite Smoothie Recipes

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!

    I must write over here, that I had a banana smoothie on my 1st of January breakfast and it was like a miracle in my mouths :)

    I love smoothies! And I love how your favorites are all different colors, very pretty collection of recipes. I just got a juicer for Christmas, so I have been experimenting with that… although most of these recipes should work in juice form too. :)

    Oh my gosh. I want all of these! Except the green ones. ;)

    I just made some banana orange smoothies and was wishing I had some fresh pineapple. I’m happy to see that on there! Can’t wait to try.
