21 SUPER HEALTHY SMOOTHIES THAT WILL KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF

Summer is here and all we need is a huge glass of out favourite smoothie to cool down. The best thing about smoothies is that you can enjoy them all year round too.

WIthout further ado, I give you these 21 Super Healthy smoothies I’ve hand selected for you.

1) The Breakfast Smoothie

What can I say? If you’ve never tried a smoothie for breakfast folks, you’re missing out! What better way to start the day than a super-energizing juice of goodness!

Sure, there are flavours for everyone but my personal go-to is a nice wake-me-up Banana Breakfast Smoothie. I would swap the almond milk for rice milk, but that’s just personal preference.

Similarly, if you have a sweet tooth, you could always add a dollop of icecream to it! The choice is yours…

2) Blueberry muffin smoothie

If you’re trying to go healthy but find yourself missing your favourite treats, I’ve got news for you. You can have your muffin and drink it!

Bad pun, I know. But this Blueberry muffin smoothie will hit the spot like no other!

3) Orange sunshine smoothie

If you need to add a little colour to your diet, what better to do that than with a bright Orange Sunshine smoothie?

Not only is it full of colour, it’s also full of vitamin C to give your immune system in the boost. Better save this one in your winter recipe collection.
