5 Must-Try Fruit & Veggie Smoothie Recipes

Fruits and Veggies Smoothies

Fruit and vegetable smoothie recipes…oh, how we love thee. The combinations of fruits and veggies you can use are endless, and so are the flavor possibilities! Delicious veggie fruit smoothie recipes are easy to prep, especially if you add your ingredients to the blender the night before and refrigerate it. That way, all you have to do is add whatever liquid you’re using, blend, and you’ll be good to go!

Fruits and veggies are full of vitamins and nutrients, so consuming enough of them every day is important. Smoothies are a great way to sneak more fruits and veggies into your day without a lot of effort, especially if you don’t love eating them on their own. Blend them together and get several varieties in one shot – or should we say, in one delicious and nutritious smoothie!

Try using frozen fruit and vegetables in your smoothies. Doing so eliminates the need to add ice, which can yield a watered down flavor. So the next time you have a banana with a brown and spotted peel, peel the banana, chop it into chunks, place the chunks in a resealable plastic bag, and pop it into the freezer. Fresh fruit that may be too overripe for snacking yields the tastiest smoothies! Looking for smoothie recipes that are as healthy as they are refreshing? Look no further than our favorites below:
