 Super Green Spirulina Smoothie Recipe

A nutritious and vibrant green smoothie with 5 ingredients: banana, cucumber, coconut milk, spirulina, and spinach! The perfect plant-based breakfast or snack.

PREP TIME: 5minutes 

TOTAL TIME: 5minutes

Servings: 1

Course: Beverage, Breakfast

Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegan

Freezer Friendly: 1 Week


1 medium ripe banana (previously peeled and frozen // ~1 cup as original recipe is written)

1/2 cup sliced cucumber (organic when possible // skin on)

3/4 – 1 cup light coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk // less for thicker smoothie, more for thinner smoothie)

1 cup spinach or chopped kale (organic when possible // I like to freeze mine)

1 tsp spirulina powder*

1 Tbsp hemp seed (optional // or sub chia seeds or vegan protein powder)

FOR SERVING optional

1/4 cup frozen or fresh blueberries (organic when possible)

1/4 cup granola (store-bought or homemade*)


To a blender*, add frozen banana, cucumber, coconut milk, spinach, spirulina, and hemp seed (optional). Blend until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides (or using smoothie wand) as needed.

If too thick, thin with water or more coconut milk. If too thin, thicken with ice or more frozen banana. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more banana for sweetness, cucumber for freshness, or greens or spirulina for green color. See note about spirulina (brands + how much to add).

Serve immediately as is or in my preferred: top with blueberries, granola, and more hemp seeds. Best when fresh, though leftovers will keep covered in the refrigerator up to 2 days or the freezer for 1 week. Thaw to enjoy from freezer.


*When adding spirulina to smoothies, start with 1 tsp and add more as desired, but this is the max for me without tasting it. Otherwise, it can start tasting a little seaweedy.

*Granola recipes: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola, Banana Bread Granola, Simple Quinoa Granola, or Nut ‘n’ Honey Granola (the one I used in photos).

*Spirulina also works extremely well when added in the same quantity to my Ginger Colada Green Smoothie!

Creamy Peach Smoothie Recipe

Creamy and delicious peach smoothie made with 5 simple ingredients for a refreshing, filling breakfast or snack! This easy peach smoothie recipe gets a boost of protein from greek yogurt and has the perfect amount of sweetness from ripe peaches and berries. Enjoy as is or add your fav nutritional boosters!

I call this my “pretty in pink” because it has the most beautiful color and incredible flavor from the addition of raspberries or strawberries. I love that they don’t overpower the peach flavor, but just add subtle hints of sweetness and berry flavor. This peach smoothie is ultra creamy and packed with protein thanks to greek yogurt (feel free to use dairy free!) and you seriously only need 5 total ingredients to make it. This one’s a must before summer ends!

5-ingredient peach smoothie recipe

This healthy peach smoothie with yogurt has simple ingredients but an incredible, creamy peach flavor! Here’s what you’ll need to make it:

Peaches: you’ll need frozen peach slices, of course, for that delicious peach flavor.

Berries: I like to add frozen raspberries or strawberries for additional fruit sweetness and a pretty pink color.

Yogurt: get that peaches and cream flavor and a boost of protein with vanilla greek yogurt.

Milk: to help the smoothie blend up you’ll add your favorite dairy free milk.

Vanilla extract: a little vanilla brings out all of the natural sweetness. Learn how to make your own at home with this tutorial!

This easy peach smoothie recipe is great for customizing with your fav smoothie ingredients, toppings, and more. Here’s what I can recommend:

Make it vegan/dairy free: simply use your favorite dairy free yogurt and dairy free milk to keep the peach smoothie both dairy free and vegan. I think a coconut-based yogurt would be delicious!

Choose your extra fruit: I love the flavor and color that raspberries and strawberries add to this peach smoothie, but it would also be delicious with blueberries or even banana.

Have fun with toppings: try adding my homemade granola on top, plus some extra fresh fruit slices for the ultimate treat!

ingredients for a peach smoothie with yogurt in a blender

Looking for more sweetness?

Because this peach smoothie is made without banana, the sweetness depends on the ripeness and/or seasonality of your frozen fruit. To make it sweeter you can add 1 pitted date or a little bit of honey/pure maple syrup and blend again until it’s sweet to your liking.

Try these easy nutritional boosters

Looking for another boost of nutrition in this creamy peach smoothie? Try adding any of the following, and remember to blend in a little more milk along with any of these additions.

Nut butter: for an additional boost of healthy fats feel free to blend in 1 tablespoon of your fav nut butter. I think almond butter would be perfect in this peach smoothie!

Flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a boost of fiber and minerals, and is especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply. Here’s a brand I love.

Chia seeds: try adding in a tablespoon of chia seeds for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.

Hemp seeds: feel free to throw in some hemp seeds for another boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.

Avocado: add healthy fats and extra creaminess by adding ripe avocado. Usually, 1/4 or 1/2 of an avocado will be sufficient and also help to keep you satisfied thanks to those healthy fats.

Protein: Easily add more protein to this turmeric smoothie by adding 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (vanilla would be delicious!) I recommend Vital Protein collagen peptides or Four Sigmatic Plant-Based Protein Powder.

Tips and Tricks 💫 

Use frozen fruit. This will help keep the smoothie cold and thick. Sometimes ice doesn’t blend as well, so it’s best to skip it unless absolutely necessary. If you only have fresh fruit, try adding 1 cup of frozen cauliflower.

Add liquid. Don’t be afraid to add more liquid if your smoothie is too thick or won’t fully blend. High powered blenders tend to blend frozen fruit much better, so if you have a regular or personal size blender, you may need to add more coconut milk.

Start low, go high. Start the blender on low speed, then gradually increase to high to help blend all ingredients. Finally, end with the blender on low speed.

Pretty in Pink Peach Smoothie

Prep Time: 5minutes

TOTAL TIME: 5minutes 

Serves: 1

Creamy and delicious peach smoothie made with 5 simple ingredients for a refreshing, filling breakfast or snack! This easy peach smoothie recipe gets a boost of protein from greek yogurt and has the perfect amount of sweetness from ripe peaches and berries. Enjoy as is or add your fav nutritional boosters!


For the smoothie:

1 heaping cup frozen peach slices

1 cup frozen raspberries or strawberries

½ cup vanilla greek yogurt (or sub dairy free yogurt of choice)

1 cup unsweetened dairy free milk of choice (i use almond milk but coconut milk would be YUM)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

To garnish:

Granola and fresh raspberries/peach slices


Add all ingredients to a high powered blender: frozen peaches, frozen raspberries, yogurt, milk and vanilla extract. Feel free to add any optional add-ins to your smoothie if you’d like. Blend until smooth, adding more milk to thin, if necessary. Taste and add honey to sweeten as necessary then blend again; this is totally optional but some might prefer a sweeter smoothie. Pour into a glass and enjoy! Serves 1. Feel free to double the recipe to serve 2.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to add 1 tablespoon almond butter for a boost of healthy fats. I also love to add a tablespoon or two of hemp seeds but it’s up to you.

If the smoothie isn’t sweet enough, which typically depends on the ripeness/seasonality of your frozen fruit, you can add 1 pitted date or a little bit of honey/pure maple syrup and blend again until it’s sweet to your liking.

If you want a boost of greens, add in 1-2 cups of spinach; the color will change but the flavor will not.

How to make sweet zobo drink

This super drink Zobo, is very tasty, colourful and highly medicinal. This plant is believed to have originated from the West Africa before spreading to other parts of the the world and different people uses the roselle (hibiscus sabdariffa) for different purposes.

Zobo is an annual or perennial herb that is botanically known as Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa). The drink is known as zobo or zoborodo drink by Nigerians and in some west African countries (Ghana) is it know as Sobolo Drink. Also other parts of the world have different names (like bissap) for this drink, kindly comment below and let us know what it is called in your part of the plant

Different countries call this plant by different names such as; rosela by Indonesians, sobolo by Ghananians, zoborodo by Nigerians, Telugu people call it Gongura, roselle is called belchanda in Nepal, 洛神花 (Luo Shen Hua) in Chinese, Chukor in Bengali, Pulicha Keerai in Tamil, krajiab priaw in Thailand, bissap in Senegalese, wonjo by Gambians, karkanji by Chads, foléré by Cameroonians, sorrel by the Caribbeans and quiabo-roxo by Brazilians.

The Hibiscus sabdariffa fruit takes approximately six months to mature and the fruits can be infused for medicinal purposes or prepared for drinks. Some studies reveal that the roselle fruit has a characteristics medicinal properties, which makes it viable for treating loss of appetite and fever. Due to its diuretic properties, rosells can also be used for treating kidney diseases. It’s anti-hypertensive properties make this plant very ideal for reducing high blood pressure. Roselle drink is an excellent source of iron, riboflavin, flavonoid, vitamin C, niacin, calcium, glycosides, carotene and water-soluble antioxidants.

The zobo drink is very natural and contains more nutrients than those made with artificial ingredients and preservatives hence nutritionists recommend people to stick to natural drinks of which zobo drink is part of. Nutritionists reveal that taking at least a glass of zobo drink after eating food is capable of reducing the absorption of dietary carbohydrates thereby maintaining a healthy body weight.

Before preparing the sorrel drink, I usually peel the pineapple and slice it into tiny bits. Although some people use the pineapple peels during preparation but I have doubts if the peels will be thoroughly clean enough for use. The zobo drink is one of the easiest drink to prepare as all you need is to wash the zobo leaves, add in a cooking pot, add the peeled pineapples and garlic and the drink is just as good as ready. So I bet you will enjoy this drink if you give it a try.


1) Zobo leaves

2) Sugar(Optional)

3) Pineapples and cucumbers

4) Ginger

5) Any flavour of your choice


1) Set your big pot on fire and pour enough quantity of water.

2) Wash your zobo leaves in a cold water to remove dirt (don’t leave it in the water for long, just put it in the water and quickly use your hand to shake it and remove it from the water).

3) Pour the zobo leaves in your pot. Add your sliced pineapple, ginger, sliced cucumbers and cover it till it has boiled very well and the water has changed to a red wine colour.

4) Remove the pot from the fire and separate the zobo liquid from the leaves. put the zobo liquid aside cover it and leave it to cool.

5) After it has cooled, add your sugar and flavour in the desired quantity but don’t let the sugar and flavour to be too much in the zobo.

6) Package it in your bottles and put in it the fridge.

Serve chilled 🍹

Note: You should wash and peel the back of the pineapple if you want but if you don’t want you can just wash the back very well, sliced it , and add it to the zobo like that ( it depends on how you want it).

Making of zobo for selling is very lucrative because people like it very well and some prefer It to other drinks. You may decide to start your own zobo business you can sell it together with either doughnuts, chin chin, mini cakes etc and make your money.

All you need is to learn how to do it very well and how to market it. If your zobo is sweet and tastes better than that of others it will stand out and before you know it people will begin to patronize you.

Rainbow Smoothie Recipe

Making smoothies is always a good idea. And making a fruit smoothie with rainbow colors is fun and healthy! Smoothies are a quick and easy way to get your daily dose of fruits, vegetables and proteins. Perfect for breakfast or as a healthy snack in between.

You can vary endlessly with different fruits and vegetables. We make a blueberry smoothie, spinach smoothie, pineapple smoothie, mango smoothie and strawberry smoothie in one, so that we get the colors of the rainbow. We pour these ‘mini’ smoothies over 2 different glasses.

This rainbow smoothie is packed with fruit and a vegetable (spinach). And this smoothie not only looks fantastic, it is also tasty and the smoothie has great different flavors.

Rainbow smoothie ingredients

In this recipe we make 5 small smoothies, so we make the colors purple, green, yellow, orange and red. Blend all ingredients of 1 color in a blender. Then stack the fruit smoothies together in a glass, so you get a rainbow smoothie. Place the glasses in the freezer in between, so that the layers become nice and straight.

The base of every smoothie is frozen banana. Frozen banana makes a smoothie deliciously thick and creamy, almost milkshake-like!

Do you want to make a real milkshake? Then replace the frozen banana with vanilla ice cream!

Rainbow fruit smoothie


For the purple layer of the smoothie, we make a blueberry smoothie. Put ½ frozen banana and 2 tablespoon of blueberries in the blender and blend! Pour the smoothie into 2 long drinking glasses and put in the freezer, while making the next color.

Is your smoothie too thick? Add a little water or pineapple juice (if you use canned pineapple).


What ingredients do you need for the green layer? ½ frozen banana, 2 hands of spinach, 50 grams of pineapple and 1 peeled apple. Blend the ingredients together and pour the smoothie onto the blueberry smoothie.


Blend 1/2 frozen banana, 75 grams of pineapple and 1 peach for a delicious pineapple smoothie. Then pour on the blueberry smoothie and spinach smoothie. Don’t forget to put the smoothie back in the freezer after each layer!

strawberry smoothie mango smoothie pineapple smoothie spinach smoothie


Second to last smoothie: a mango smoothie! This is the orange layer of this rainbow smoothie. Blend ½ frozen banana, 5 frozen mango pieces, 1 peach and 1 raspberry together.


I love strawberries, raspberries and banana. Strawberry smoothies are my favorite! This is the red part of the rainbow fruit smoothie. Blend ½ frozen banana, 7 strawberries and 10 raspberries, then pour the smoothie into the glasses on top of the other layers.

Got leftover strawberrieway.

Best Kale Smoothie Recipe

Here’s how to make the very best kale smoothie, bright green with the most irresistible fruity flavor! It’s the tastiest way to eat your greens.
Why it’s the best kale smoothie

Really, this one’s the best kale smoothie…which is saying something, because we’ve made lots of kale smoothies that are too bitter, too thick, or too icy. This one has all the right ingredients to make an irresistibly tasty green puree. Why make this smoothie?

It’s got pure, sweet tart flavor. Really, you won’t be able to stop drinking it! No bitterness here.

It’s got a silky smooth, frosty texture. Just the right thickness for sipping!

It’s full of healthy ingredients. No sugary juices to make it taste good.

It’s plant-based. There’s no need to use milk or yogurt: it’s all fruit and leafy greens!

Baby kale vs Tuscan kale vs curly kale

There are several types of kale that you can use in this smoothie. Here’s a breakdown of each type:

Baby kale: Baby kale works well in a smoothie because it has a sweeter, mild flavor. It’s a young version of kale, harvested before it matures. You can find it sold in boxes at the grocery or bags at your local farmers market.

Tuscan kale: Tuscan kale is the next best option: it’s got a mild flavor and flat, dark green leaves. It’s also labeled as dinosaur kale or Lacinato kale.

Curly kale: Curly kale works too, but it has a pretty spicy flavor that’s more bitter than the other two. If you use this variety, you may want to start with less and add it to taste.

The trick to blending

Here’s a trick to blending this kale smoothie: first, blend the softer room temperature fruits and liquid. In this case, it’s the banana, apple, kale and water. Then add in the frozen ingredients: the frozen pineapple and ice. This helps it to blend easier: so you won’t need to endlessly stop, scrape, and start again!

Add-ins & variations

This kale smoothie is pretty perfect as is: but you can always mix it up with tasty additions! Here are a few options:

Ginger: Add ½ teaspoon grated ginger to the mix.

Mint or basil. Add a few fresh mint or basil leaves for an herbaceous spin.

Coconut. A handful of shredded coconut adds a tropical flair.

Smoothie storage

Smoothies are best eaten immediately. But this kale smoothie actually lasts 1 to 2 days refrigerated, stored in a sealed container or a mason jar with the lid on. It may separate, which is perfectly natural. Just shake it up and you’re good to go!

This kale smoothie recipe is…

Vegetarian, vegan, plant-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Yield: 2 smoothies

Greek Yogurt Smoothie Recipe

A creamy Greek yogurt smoothie garnished with blueberries.

Greek Yogurt Smoothie

A healthy Greek yogurt smoothie recipe to use as a base! Try this fun combo of pineapple and berries, or explore your own favorite flavors. The sky is the limit.

A Greek Yogurt Smoothie is a great way to start the day off with beneficial probiotics, protein, and a variety of fruits and vegetables. It’s super creamy, and turns smoothies into a dessert-like consistency. Turn this recipe into your favorite flavor combo! Add strawberries, blueberries, mango, bananas, a variety of greens, or even flavors like cocoa powder or chai spice.


Smoothies are a great way to pack in nutrients. I love starting my day with a smoothie, and knowing I am front-loading my day with protein, fruits, veggies, and healthy fats.

They are ideal for busy lifestyles. I can’t imagine an easier way to get such a variety of healthy foods in! When the mood strikes, a smoothie is a perfect quick snack.

Greek yogurt has long been a favorite smoothie addition of mine. It adds a creamy and tangy flavor. The Greek yogurt taste compliments the sweetness fruit!

When making smoothies, I like to think of this balanced approach:

1-2 servings of vegetables (think spinach, kale, cauliflower, and zucchini)

1-2 servings of fresh fruits (fruit is high in sugar, but that is mediated by the fiber and protein in a balanced smoothie!)

1 T healthy fat (coconut oil, MCT oil, avocado, or nut butter)

20-45 g of protein (depending on whether it’s a meal or a snack. This can be a combination of Greek yogurt and protein powder).

Unsweetened liquid (such as almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or green tea. Avoid apple juice or other liquids that add sugar without fiber.)

Extra Ingredients: Add flavor and healthy nutrients by throwing in some superfoods! Matcha, cinnamon, turmeric, vanilla extract, and cacao powder are great options


Greek yogurt has a range of health benefits!

It’s a great way to add protein to a smoothie. 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt has 15-20 grams of protein. It’s a great option for people who prefer not to use protein powders. Adding protein to smoothies makes them more satiating.

Greek yogurt is UBER creamy! Honestly, yogurt adds a tangy flavor and creamy consistency that makes smoothies dessert-like. I use it in my Chocolate Chip Mint Smoothie!

It’s a fermented food, meaning it has probiotics that help improve gut health. Be sure to buy a plain, high quality Greek yogurt with multiple bacteria strains for the most benefits.


Dairy milk is often difficult to digest. Yogurt contains bacteria that is more beneficial to digestion. In addition, Greek yogurt has more concentrated protein.

Non-dairy milks are great for thinning smoothies out. I recommend a combination of unsweetened, non-dairy milk and plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt.

Creamy yogurt also gives smoothies a tangy flavor and better consistency!

The sky is the limit when it comes to adding flavor! Chai spice, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, and vanilla are great flavor enhancers for smoothies (and it doesn’t hurt that they all have anti inflammatory properties!).

1 frozen banana (cut into quarters)

1/2 cup Greek Yogurt

1/2 cup almond milk (or full fat coconut milk!)

1-2 teaspoons chai spice (depending on how spicy you like it!)

1-2 teaspoons of honey or maple syrup, if desired

1 tablespoon MCT or Coconut Oil (adds creaminess)

Optional: Greens

Optional: Protein Powder or Collagen

Amp up your Greek Yogurt Fruit Smoothie!

Add superfoods and spices to give your smoothie more power!

Hemp seeds (for more protein + fiber)

Chia Seeds (fiber!)

Matcha Green Tea powder (flavor + antioxidants)

MCT Oil or MCT Oil Powder (creamy consistency plus ketone-producer, which helps with mental clarity. Studies have shown it increases brain energy by 8-9%.)

Spirulina (has a dense nutrient content, including protein, iron, and copper. Make things really fun by using a BLUE spirulina!

Nut Butters (healthy fats!): Sunflower seed butter, cashew butter, or almond butter are my favs. If you opt for peanut butter, find one without added oils or sugars.

A little bit of honey. Honey has anti microbial and anti viral properties, in addition to adding a sweet flair to your smoothie.
