Happy Fri-yay morning friends!
With an extra yay built in since it is a 3 day weekend for me! I’ll be spending my patriots day like any great American, sleeping in, drinking lots of coffee, and going out for breakfast. Just living the dream…
Ever since I turned a salad into a smoothie, I thought there must be other smoothie genies out there, ready and waiting with mystery ingredients to blend into uncharted territory. Short story short, I was right.
So from a fellow smoothie adventure-er to another, here’s a fine collection of drinkables with undetectable healthy ingredients to blow your smoothie-lovin mind.

Green Goddess Smoothie – Sinful Nutrition
Guaranteed to give you the immortal powers of Athena in a glass. Or just feel like…super healthy.
Kale Pineapple Date Smoothie – The Green Protein
If it wasn’t for it’s green glow, you would have nevah evah thought there was a garden full of kale in there.
Almond Joy Green Smoothies – Nosh and Nourish
Vegetables and chocolate bars in harmony?! The world (aka this smoothie-filled glass) is a wondrous place.
Creamy Strawberry Spinach Smoothie – Sinful Nutrition
There it is. A salad in a smoothie. Once you see how creamy and strawberry dream filled it is, you can forget how healthy you’re actually being.
Banana Free Green Smoothie – Berries and Basil
If you can’t handle bananas all up in your bevs, there is a light at the end of the green filled tunnel. Served up with all of the toppings of your smoothie bowl dreams.
Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Smoothie – The Muffin Myth
Give me the chance to have a brownie in any shape or form for breakfast, and you have my heart forever.
Black Forest Protein Smoothie – That Girl Shannon
I searched deep in the depths of the bean-filled smoothie forest, and stumbled upon this good-enough-for-dessert smoothie.
Kale & Edamame Pina Colada Smoothie – Cooking By Moonlight
There’s beans AND greens in this smoothie. A dietitian’s dream through a straw.
Hot Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie (with oats) – Running with Spoons
For those days when you’re trying to be healthy, but all you really want is a chocolate bar in drinkable form. Life = made.
Blueberry Almond Breakfast Quinoa Smoothie – Food Faith Fitness
So much goodness in one bowl, and a great way to use up those five pounds of quinoa you cooked for dinner last night.
Chocolate Malt Oatmeal Smoothie – Well Plated
Somewhere in that malt shop in the sky, foodies are drinking away at these in their yoga pants and food pun tank tops, posting all the instas. A girl can dream…
Orange Kale Quinoa Smoothie Bowl – Diary of an Ex-Sloth
If I was trapped on a deserted island, I’d want an endless supply of Jack Johnson music and these smoothie bowls. Wouldn’t even need a Wilson.
Healthy Blueberry Cobbler Smoothie – Abbey’s Kitchen
Being in Maine, I’m kinda partial to blueberries, especially when they are combined in dessert AND breakfast. That means two a day are totally acceptable, right?
Very Berry Beet Smoothie – Emilie Eats
You can’t “beet” a smoothie that looks this jewel-esque. Well…I guess that’s the whole premise of this, so yeah just beet it.
Orange Carrot Coconut Smoothie – Cotter Crunch
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about adding peanut butter to this, but I’ll settle for the golden hue that may or may not resemble my palms that hold it.
Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie (with hidden zucchini) – Foodiecology
This will come in especially handy when you’ve reached Bubba Gump status on all of the zucchini coming out of the garden, and have had it with zoodles.
Chocolate Cauliflower Shake – The Green Forks
While cauliflower is being used for every other purpose under the food encrusted sun, I’ve yet to see it thrown in the smoothie realm. Chocolate is definitely the gateway drug into uncharted territory of cauliflower gone deliciously wild.
Sunrise Sweet Potato Smoothie – Wholefully
Guilty of wanting to add peanut butter to this party for two! Although liquid sweet potato pie sounds pretty soul satisfying on its own.
