My Top 3 Favourite Healthy Smoothies

I love smoothies for an easy grab-and-go breakfast or a protein-packed snack. It’s so convenient to keep frozen fruit and chopped up veggies in the freezer to pop out and into the blender to create a healthy, nutrient dense meal in just a few minutes. Here are my top 3 favourite healthy smoothies that I have been making on repeat over the past couple of months!


Creamy Avocado Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • ½ ripe banana
  • ¼ ripe avocado
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I love Genuine Health Fermented Organic Vegan Proteins+)
  • 1 large handful of your greens of choice (spinach, kale, rainbow chard – frozen is great)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flax seed

Directions:

Add all ingredients to your blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into a large glass, add ice and enjoy!


Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie

  • 3 tablespoons rolled oats 
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds 
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract 
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger 
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg

Directions:

Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass, add ice, top with additional cinnamon and enjoy!


Cooling Mint Cacao Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • ½ banana (frozen & diced)
  • 1 cup packed organic spinach leaves
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon Cacao nibs (or vegan chocolate chips)
