Fruit Smoothie Recipes

I absolutely love smoothies. If I had to live on one food for the rest of my life, fruit smoothies would be it. They are just so delicious and refreshing, and you can pack them with all sorts of nutrients and healthy foods. I love to drink smoothies after a hard workout because they are filling, taste fresh and healthy, and packed with protein. Here are a few of my favorite recipes that I make regularly, as well as some healthy add ins you can use.

(All recipes make one large serving)
