How to Blend the Perfect Smoothie

I like to follow what we call the 60/40 method for blending: 60% fruits & 40% leafy greens. This balance gives me the best of both worlds: a delicious, drinkable smoothie loaded with nutrients. Who wouldn’t want that perfect combo on a daily basis?

One serving of the perfect green smoothie is:

Every ingredient in Simple Green Smoothie is intentional yet all result in delicious, drinkable creations that make adding to our daily routine a breeze. The fruit and leafy green combinations are endless. That’s why it’s so easy to add in this healthy habit, no matter where you live.

If you choose a non-green smoothie, that’s okay too! I use smoothies like the Chocolate Peanut Butter one above for natural energy before or after a workout. The Epic Almond smoothie makes a protein-powered breakfast option. And the Healthy Blueberry smoothie is a deliciously sweet treat without added sugar or other weird ingredients.

Different types of leafy greens including kale, Swiss chard and spinach, laying on top of each other.

How to Boost Your Smoothie

If you want to boost any smoothie, here are a few tips to do so:

  • If the smoothie recipe doesn’t list leafy greens as an ingredient, feel free to toss in a handful anyway!
  • Sometimes I want my smoothie boosted with a specific superfood to combat illness, energize me or boost a nutrient so I turn to superfood ingredients.
  • To turn any smoothie into a meal, add one serving of plant-based protein powder. This helps you feel full longer and uses the protein and healthy fat in that protein powder to give you longer-lasting energy without a sugar crash.

Healthy Smoothie Recipes FAQs

What are the healthiest ingredients to put in a smoothie?

If you use only whole food, plant-based ingredients in your smoothies then you’re off to a good start. I like to add leafy greens to any smoothie I make to boost the nutrients and fiber. You can also toss in superfoods like hemp hearts or chia seeds for both healthy fat and protein.

Are smoothies good for losing weight?

They can be! Losing weight is so much more than just eating the ‘right’ things, yet I find when I focus on filling my meals with plants and drinking at least one green smoothie a day, I am able to better manage my weight as well as have energy for exercise and adventure.

What should you not mix into a smoothie?

I avoid adding dairy to smoothies as I find they do not help with my digestion and dairy easily inflames my joints. I choose water or unsweetened plant milk liquid bases over fruit juice to cut down on the natural sugar that can lead to a sugar spike and then crash.

Healthy Habits That Stick

I’ve found that a common topic among my friends and family is how to eat healthier. We’re always trying a new fad or trending diet just to eat healthier. Most of the time they end up making us eat worse by the end.

  1. Day 3 Pineapple Dream Smoothie was really good. Just don’t add more ice if you use frozen fruit!

  2. Day 2 of the 10-day smoothie challenge: I’m having the Pink Flamingo for breakfast. I switched up the liquids to 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup coconut water. Love the strawberry taste!

  3. Beginners luck is definitely one of my favorites. It’s my go to on days where I’m not up to trying a new recipe or I simply need a solid smoothie for my tough day ahead. Anytime a coworker asks me if my “weird green smoothie” actually tastes good, I share the BL recipe to get them started.

  4. I kept my recipe cards on my work computer. When I retired I did not get to download them. Can I get them again?

    1. Debra, someone from our Rawkstar Team will be reaching out to you to help you with this.

  5. Found myself feeling in need of some greenness this week so I obviously need to try them all again. I feel so less sluggish when I do a green smoothie every day. I will try the beetroot one I think as I love the versatility of beetroot.

    1. A green smoothie a day really does make you feel so much better!!! It’s crazy how much my body misses it when I take a break for a little bit. So happy you will be getting back into the green smoothies again!!

  6. Yum. I love all of these, but my favorite is still Beginner’s Luck! So rich and creamy. If I’m craving sweet and chocolate, definitely Banana and Chocolate. Tastes like a creamy milkshake. Yum. And, if I’ve overindulged, then I’m swinging for the “cleanser” type smoothies with citrus and ginger and general clean-me-out ingredients.

  7. These recipes are amazing. I’m a mom of three one which is a toddler with a feeding tube. I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate healthy food blends that we all can enjoy but get the nutrition she needs daily. These smoothies have made all the difference.

  8. Definitely trying the fat burning, mostly because grapefruit and pineapple together sound amazing. With all the green smoothies I drink, I have somehow missed that one

  9. #3 Anti inflammatory smoothie, because I need help with the inflamation I have been experiencing

  10. I’m most excited to try #3, the anti-inflammatory smoothie – not just for the flavor, but also for the potential health benefits. I was diagnosed with a muscle-inflammatory disease some years ago. I’ve only now begun to transition to a plant-based diet that will include smoothies. I’m hopeful that these anti-inflammatory foods will alleviate my auto-immune symptoms and I’ll be healthy, feel better, and have more energy.
