16 Healthy Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies make easy breakfasts, quick snacks and if made right, healthful meal options. Get healthy recipes and whip up an easy smoothie in your blender today.

From breakfast to dessert, smoothies are a quick, please-everyone solution; they require little prep (just toss everything in a blender and press a button) and are completely customizable. To make smoothie prep even easier, keep your freezer stocked with frozen fruit.

Smoothie Smarts

These deliciously frosty drinks can be sipped for a snack or a meal. Pay attention to portion sizes and higher-calorie ingredients (like frozen yogurt or nut butter) to make sure you don't overdo it. A snack-sized smoothie should be about 150-200 calories, and to make your smoothie a healthful meal, shoot for more protein and 350-450 calories (and less sugary ingredients).

Breakfast

Start the day with any of these fruit-filled drinks.
