Eight Smoothie Recipes to Try in the New Year

There’s nothing like the fresh start of a new year (and the dead of Winter) to get you pumped up about fresh fruits and veggies. I’ve been making tons of smoothies lately, and though I usually just throw in whatever’s in the refrigerator, I’ve been looking for some new recipes to shake up my regimen. Green smoothies are (usually) tasty – just remember some lemon and honey when using bitter greens, but I’m excited about making some of the “red” smoothie recipes below (maybe even the dragon fruit recipe – how exotic)! If you’re new to smoothie-making but want to get started, do make sure you’ve got a decent blender. There’s nothing more frustrating that pouring out a lumpy smoothie that’s not been mixed well. I’ve got a Magic Bullet and I’m a huge fan of it, especially because of it’s size and single-serving cups (not sponsored). Got any favorite smoothie recipes? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. I must say that every green smoothie -with the exception of the weirdest: avocado smoothie, repels me. Just a look at it, and I have the impression that it will taste like tree leaves juice.
    But that dragon fruit smoothie… what a beauty! With those toppings. That one is certainly on my list!
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • I totally know how gross green smoothies can look (especially if you mix green and red produce – it makes it brown!), but they can taste so yummy, especially with some lemon to brighten the flavor and honey or apple juice to sweeten!

      • Gotta try that! The lemon and honey idea sound very attractive. 🙂

  2. I must confess, I’m definitely a juice person. I’ve done so many regimen’s, I’m LOADED: Ninja Mega Kitchen system, Nutri Bullet, and the Breville juicer (my FAVOURITE by far). I do try to go from juice to smoothie, but I have yet to be a fan so far. THOUGH, the Dragon Fruit and Superfood Sunshine looks tremendous! I suppose I have to get out of the box eventually and try one! Haha

    • Well you’re prepared 🙂 I wanted to try juicing for a while but I decided I like getting all of the fruit (fiber and all) in my drink!
