Healthy smoothie recipes can provide an ideal fix for anyone who is looking for something nutritious to eat, stat. Throw a few ingredients into a blender, grab a glass and straw, and you’re ready to go in just a few seconds. Easy, right?

But not all smoothies will help you meet your nutritional goals. In fact, many pre-made smoothies (and smoothie bowls) you find at the store are loaded with excess sugar and don’t have enough fiber, protein or fat to keep you satiated.

Good news: If you’re looking for healthy smoothies for weight loss or just a better way to start your day, we have expert-approved tips, tricks, and ingredients to toss into your blender ASAP.

Whether you gravitate toward strawberry smoothies or prefer a rich, chocolate smoothie recipe that heads into milkshake territory, there is a tasty option for you. But before you decide to make one of these amazing recipes, invest in one of the best blenders for smoothies, so you can blitz everything into the perfect consistency every time.

How to build a healthy smoothie

Smoothies can make a healthy breakfast if you have a good balance of ingredients and nutrients—including protein, carbs, and healthy fats.

“Smoothies can be a healthy and convenient way to add in several nutrients to help jump-start your day,” says Andrea Mathis, M.A., R.D.N., L.D., author of The Complete Book of Smoothies: 115 Health Recipes to Nourish, Health, and Energize.

Mathis especially loves that you can modify smoothies for any taste or preference, though she emphasizes the importance of making smart swaps. After all, you want to ensure you’re getting all the nutrients your body needs. One example: While protein powder is a great addition to your smoothie for an extra kick of the macronutrient, Mathis also loves nuts, cottage cheese, chia seeds, and other foods that already contain high amounts of protein naturally.

Additionally, adding a source of healthy fat, like nuts or avocado, and extra fiber from vegetables, flax seeds, hemp seeds, or chia seeds can help provide essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, she says.

Is it healthy to have a smoothie every day?

By making your own smoothies at home and putting that blender to good use, you are taking one (important) step toward saving yourself money and giving yourself full control of what goes into your drink. Enjoying a smoothie every day is totally fine if you make sure it has a good balance of nutrients.

That said, dietitians say it’s actually better to chew and swallow food rather than drink it, since it better helps your body gauge for fullness. With that in mind, it’s probably best to limit your intake to one smoothie a day and enjoy proper meals and snacks throughout the rest of day. If your plan is to have a smoothie as your main meal, try to include at least 25 g of protein; if it’s a snack, go for at least 10 g of protein.

We took a lot of the guesswork out of the equation for you, with this round-up of delicious, healthy smoothies—making it easier to eat right with nutrient-rich fruit and veggies, creamy milk, protein, probiotic-rich yogurt, and other nutritious ingredients. Just a note: Some of these recipes contain fruit juice or honey to up the sweetness, but if you’re looking to cut added sugar from your diet, you can nix those ingredients. (Chances are, you won’t miss the sweetness.)

She has worked in clinical, public health, and long-term care settings, and shares nutritious recipes and advice on her site, Beautiful Eats & Things. She is also the author of The Complete Book of Smoothies: 115 Health Recipes to Nourish, Health, and Energize.

Plus, several of these recipes are from Smoothies & Juices, the book from Prevention’s Healing Kitchen series. Give these recipes a try, and once you learn what flavors and textures you like (or dislike), you can confidently start experimenting to create your own perfect blend.
