5 Four-Ingredient Smoothie Recipes

If you were looking to change up your smoothie game, these five four-ingredient smoothies are for you. Packed with juicy and flavorful fruits and veggies, these healthy smoothie recipes are powerhouses of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals that not only taste great but are great for your body too.

First up, we have a golden yellow smoothie that’s as bright as sunshine, with carrots and apples for a kick of sweetness. Smooth and creamy avocados bring a dose of healthy fats. Feel free to add a little bit of ginger or turmeric for an extra serving of immune boosting goodness. If you drop in some ripe frozen mango too, you’ll now have a tropical smoothie on your hands.

For those who want to add a bit more protein to their diets, we have a sweet and salty cashew smoothie, using plain Greek yogurt, rimmed with sea salt and sweetened with banana plus some optional agave nectar. It reminds us of smooth and creamy peanut butter covered frozen bananas. After that, a dark red berry beet smoothie uses the natural sugars found in beets and the bright burst of berry flavors to make you forget there’s also a bunch of fiber loaded kale in there.

Spinach, banana, pineapple, oh my! The next one on our list is a green team that benefits from a spoonful of matcha for extra flavor that makes you think of popular matcha floats. Finally, an off pink strawberry lettuce smoothie that brings together the popular combination of strawberries and bananas with almond milk. Did we mention this one (if you skip the whey protein powder) plus a few of the previous ones are also vegan? Change it up with coconut milk for a different flavor.

You can use frozen fruits and vegetables to make an icy treat for those hot after gym workouts as well as portion out each of them beforehand if you’re into weekly meal preps. As a meal replacement, these are perfectly healthy breakfast smoothies to help you start the day right.

Whether you’re making these to up your fruit and vegetable intake, or if you have some fitness and health goals in mind, these delicious smoothies will help you reach them. We hope you give them and try and let us know how you like them in the comment section.

Here are the 5 smoothies that you’ll need for the 5-Day Smoothie Challenge.  Be sure to check out the official challenge page for all the details as well as the complete grocery list!

Again, the purpose is to increase our consumption of raw veggies and fruits, as well as give us ideas/inspiration for new flavor combinations that we can use to enrich our own diet.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
