Smoothie N1

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz collard greens
  • 2 oranges – peeled
  • 1 banana – peeled
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 tbsp chia seed
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Banana and orange are two of the most familiar smoothie elements, and for good reason! Bananas blend beautifully into nearly any recipe, and provide a sweetness and creaminess that compliments the savory flavor of greens. Plus, they’re full of potassium, which wards against cramps and helps lower blood pressure. Along with a nice tart zing, oranges add fiber and vitamin C, and collard greens add a bit of protein as well as vitamin A and more vitamin C. Even though you won’t taste them, chia seeds are really the star of this smoothie. With very few calories per serving, but a high amount of protein, healthy fat, fiber and magnesium, these little guys not only help to keep you full, but get your metabolism revved up and ready to go all day long.

Smoothie N2

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz swiss chard
  • 1 apple – chopped
  • 2 apricots – pitted
  • 2 tsp rosehip powder
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

This fiberful blend will get your system running smoothly! Apricots are a good source of catechins, a family of flavonoid phytonutrients. These small fruits contain four to five grams of the anti-inflammatory catechins, as well as vitamins A and C. Speaking of vitamin C, rosehip powder is an excellent source. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, and may help regulate blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and blood pressure! This light drink is a fantastic nutrient-dense meal replacement, or a energy-boosting snack.

This savory green drink will wake you up! Spicy food stimulates blood flow, and brings healthy color to the skin. Cruciferous collards pack tons of vitamins and minerals into a low-calorie, high fiber leaf. The vitamin K in the greens help strengthen bones and improve calcium absorption. Blend a sweet apple and hydrating persian cucumber into this invigorating mix!

  • ½ lime – juiced
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 cup water

Feeling a little dry? Is your daily skincare routine not doing quite the job you’d like it too when it comes to moisturizing during the hot weather? Cool down with refreshing cucumber and lime, both of which are extremely good for your skin. Cashews are high in the mineral copper, which helps rebuild collagen and elastin. What we put in our bodies is just as important as what we put on them when it comes to radiating health, so drink this smoothie and do your skin some good!

Smoothie N5

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ oz baby spinach
  • 1 green zucchini
  • 1 apple – chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Apple cider vinegar has been hailed as one of most helpful alternative medicines out there, doing everything from controlling blood sugar spikes, to aiding digestion and weight loss, to even helping cure UTIs and sinus issues. Cinnamon is a tasty anti-inflammatory, and zucchini adds a touch of summer flavor to this decidedly fall-ish smoothie. Did you know that zucchini is actually classified as a fruit? Or that it’s obscenely low in calories for its volume? It also has a very mild taste, often taking on the flavor of whatever its mixed with. Drink in the last days of summer and the first days of fall, all in one healthy green glass!

Smoothie N6

Ingredients

  • 1 grapefruit – peeled
  • 1 banana – peeled
  • ½ lime – juiced
  • 3 sprigs mint
  • ½ tsp maqui berry powder
  • 3 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

For all their sweetness, grapefruits are quite low in calories. They’re another high vitamin C food, and also have good doses of vitamin A and beta carotene. Maqui powder, made from a ground up fruit native to Chile and Argentina, has more antioxidant power than almost any other food. Give yourself even more vitamin C with a half a lime, nourishing potassium from banana, and the breezy, stomach-easing power of fresh mint, and you’ve got a breakfast smoothie that will make your skin and energy as bright as the leaves that are just beginning to fall.

Smoothie N7

Ingredients

  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 1 mini orange cauliflower – leaves removed
  • 1 orange – peeled
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp pomegranate powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Cauliflower is a great source of fiber and vitamin C, and even though it’s considered a starchy vegetable, is relatively low carb. This particularly adorable variety comes with edible leaves attached, but we recommend you remove them because they can be quite bitter. Oranges are full of vitamin C too, but many people don’t know that pineapple actually has more vitamin C per serving. Turmeric and ginger are packed with anti-inflammatory power, and are especially good at helping to ease chronic joint pain. Pomegranates have almost three times more antioxidant oomph than green tea or red wine, and are another high-fiber food.

Nutrition Facts: 101 calories, 0.4g fat, 25g carbs, 2g protein per 12-ounce serving. Yields 2 servings.

Smoothie N8

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby kale
  • 4 oz beets – scrubbed and chopped
  • 3 oz cranberries
  • 1 tangerine – peeled
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 tsp pomegranate powder
  • 3 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Is your immune system feeling a little overworked? The antioxidant power of pomegranate, plus the high vitamin C content of beets, cranberries and tangerines will give you a healthy glow from the inside out. Beets are high in fiber and folate, and also in manganese, which helps support your liver (the liver processes toxins, and is usually greatly affected in times of stress). Ginger works to ease any stress-related inflammation, and walnuts provide the healthy kind of fat our body needs to burn energy efficiently.

Smoothie N9

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby kale
  • 2 1/2 oz snow peas
  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 2 tbsp hemp seed
  • 2 tsp sacha inchi
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Also called an Inca peanut, sacha inchi is actually the seed of a plant that grows in Peru. Rich in protein, Omega-3s and vitamin E, sacha inchi has a mild, nutty taste, and has been shown to lower cholesterol. Low in fat but high in protein, fiber and micronutrients, snow peas are a winter vegetable staple that bring a light, fresh taste to smoothies. Add in some pineapple for a blast of vitamin C, grapes for cancer-fighting polyphenols, and hemp seed for Omega-3s, and you’ve got a smoothie that’s light on fat and calories, but big in nutrients.

Nutrition Facts: 166 calories, 6g fat, 23g carb, 8g protein per 12-ounce serving. Yields 2 servings.

Smoothie N10

Ingredients

  • 4 oz grapes
  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 4 oz cantaloupe
  • 1 tbsp yacon root
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Native to South America, yacon root is known mainly for its antihyperglycemic effects, which means that it has the ability to lower the amount of glucose production and ease blood sugar spikes. Cashews have the lowest fat content of any nut, and most of the fat they do have is the healthy unsaturated kindPineapple has more vitamin C than oranges or lemons, is full of fiber, and helps to keep the body alkaline. Round out this immune-boosting, low sugar smoothie with cancer-fighting polyphenols from grapes and potassium from cantaloupe, and you have a sweet treat that’s perfect for saying “I love you” without the crash that comes from a handful of heart box chocolates.

Nutrition Facts: 138 calories, 4g fat, 25g carbs, 2g fiber, 17g sugar, 2g protein per 12-ounce serving. Yields 2 servings.

Smoothie N11

Ingredients

  • 4 oz carrots – chopped
  • 1 cara cara orange – peeled
  • 2 tomatillos – husked
  • 3 tbsp cashews
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Cara cara oranges have a flavor that is more complex than most navel varieties, with a taste that has notes of “cherry, rose petal, orange, and blackberry.” Tomatillos are a small, green Mexican fruit, and should be peeled out of their papery husk before blending. They contain fiber, potassium, and manganese, and have an almost lemon-esque taste. Carrots add a dose of beta-carotene, and cashews help create a smooth liquid base that’s full of healthy unsaturated fat. Because the carrots, orange and tomatillos all contain hefty amounts of vitamin C, one serving of this snack provides almost a full day’s worth of this collagen-boosting supplement.

Nutrition Facts: 124 calories, 4g fat, 19g carbs, 4g fiber, 11g sugar, 3g protein per 12-ounce serving. Yields 2 servings.

Smoothie N12

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby kale
  • 1 pear – chopped
  • 6 oz cantaloup
  • 3 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 tsp acai berry
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Acai has had its moment in the sun, with manufacturers trying to prove it does everything under the sun, but one thing acai truly does have is a high amount of antioxidants. Acai is also low in sugar but high in fiber, making it a perfect natural sweetener. Cantaloup is a excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A, and like acai, pears are a low glycemic fruit that are full of fiber. Add in some nutrient-dense baby kale (fiber, vitamins A, C and K), and some walnuts for a creamy texture and healthy unsaturated fat, and you’ve got a smoothie that’s low in sugar but high in taste!

Nutrition Facts: 157 calories, 7g fat, 21g carbs, 5.4g protein per 12-ounce serving. Yields 2 servings.
