You know what I love about smoothie video recipes? They make it so easy to create delicious smoothies, even if you've never done it before.
Whether you’re trying to lose weight or just eating healthily, there’s nothing else that packs nutrition in a delicious way like a smoothie. Smoothies ae a great way to make sure you’re getting 5-7 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. They can also target specific issues such as gut health. I’ve put together a list of great smoothie video recipes from Instagram ‘cos videos are far more fun to follow than reading a recipe. Enjoy!
1. Low Carb Almond Smoothie
This is one of my favourite smoothie video recipes. Get a dose of delicious healthy fats from the almonds. And who is going to argue with peanut butter, yogurt, coconut and cinnamon. Yum!
2. Very Very Berry Smoothie
A hit of berries is the perfect way to start the day.
3. Banana Smoothie
The Instagrammer calls this a banana smoothie but it’s so much more. Nutrition is ramped up with dates, flax and hemp.
4. Chocolate Chunky Monkey Superfood Smoothie Bowl
Who said you can’t have chocolate for breakfast? So good, you’ll want to eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Proof that chocolate is good for you.
5. Healthy Hemp Protein Smoothie
Why have smoothies that contain hemp? Because hemp is the foodstuff with the most abundant content of the 9 essential amino acids that we need to get from our diet because our bodies don’t produce them naturally.
6. Magic Smoothie
In this smoothie, you get vitamins C and A from the mango, magnesium, iron and potassium from the spinach, potassium from the banana, protein, and calcium from the sunflower seeds, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids from the kale, and fibre and magnesium from the psyllium.
7. Green Smoothie
No self-respecting list of smoothie recipes would be complete without a green smoothie. The green elements in this one are kale and spinach.
8. Pink Dragon Fruit Smoothie
Treat yourself to this smoothie when you’ve got aches and pains – doesn’t have to be specific pain; just when your body’s feeling a bit bleugh. Don’t leave out the turmeric as it’s one of the best natural anti-inflammatories in the food world.
9. Blueberry and Banana Breakfast Smoothie
Need something to keep you going until lunchtime? Oats, bananas and blueberries will fix you up.
10. Pea and Zucchini Smoothie
Want a green smoothie but are bored of kale and spinach? How about peas and zucchini (we call them courgettes in the UK!)?
11. Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Pumpkin pie may be associated with fall but this is good enough to eat all year round, and because it uses canned puree, no need to wait for fresh pumpkin season.
12. Red and Black Smoothie
Black from black cherries. Red from red berries. Some kale and pea protein, and you’re all set to go.
13. The Gut Healer
Absolutely packed with goodness, this is the smoothie to make when you have a bit of a gippy tummy. Ginger is such a fabulous natural healer and there’s antioxidants aplenty from the honey and chia.
14. Monday Morning Smoothie
Start your week off bright eyed and bushy tailed. This smoothie contains lots of energizing ingredients to have you kicking off Monday like the Energizer Bunny.
