13 Smoothie Ideas

Introduction

My all-time favourite beverage is a Smoothie. I don’t really care for the one made from purees or concentrates. When it comes to smoothies, I want it fully organic – fruit, vegetables, milk, yogurt and honey.

This post is all about my love for smoothies. It’s very difficult to share smoothie recipes as literally there are endless options – sky is the limit really. I will be sharing different types of smoothies you can try out at home. Just giving you some ideas. You can try some of these out and choose the combinations you want to stick to.

Ingredients

Main

I put all of these in all my smoothies

  • Milk – As many cups as you need
  • Yogurt – 1/2 Tablespoon for each cup (optional). Vanilla yogurt is even tastier
  • Honey 1 tsp for each cup or sugar if you are not a health freak

Vital greens

I add one of these in most of my smoothies

Texture (optional)

  • Whipped (or any) cream
  • Ice-cream

Method

Add very little milk and all other ingredients and liquidise it in your food processor for about 30 seconds. Then add the rest of the milk and liquidise it for another 20 seconds. Serve cold.

Smoothie Combinations

With the above ingredients, you have the choice of adding any combination. I would like to share the following.

  1. Berry with any vital greens

This is my most popular smoothie where I add strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries. These can either be used alone or with Spinach or Kale leaves.

2. Kiwi with vital greens

Kiwi is great for smoothies and can be mixed up with any berries and any green vitals ingredients

3. Pear, Spinach & Ginger

In this combination, you add a pinch of ginger to get a kick. The ingredients sound a bit strange mixed in together but honestly its one of the yummiest smoothies.

4. Date, Almond & Oat 

Earlier on the blog, I shared a smoothie recipe for Date, Almond & Oat oat Shake.

5. Lassi

Yogurt, sugar, milk and cream are the ingredients to make a frothy lassi. Here is my detailed blog post on its recipe.

6. Cookies & Cream

Use Oreo biscuits, ice-cream and cream for this

7. Apricot & Pineapple

8. Banana, apple, carrot & orange

9. Blueberry & Pomegranate

10. Kiwi, Banana & Lime

11. Mango & papaya

12. Guava & Grape

13. Strawberry & watermelon

Health Notes

The Last Word

Try different combinations. Make sure you add all main ingredients and at least one of the vital greens when you try any combination. Best of luck! I will be waiting to know how yours turned out.
