Three Awesome + Quick Smoothie Recipes!

nathan's green smoothie

a smoothie I made back in Massachusetts – oh the memories…


I haven’t always started my morning with green (or multi-colored) smoothies. :)


In fact, there was a time when I had NO idea how to make a smoothie.

I literally thought, “What do I put in it?” :)

(So totally laughing at myself right now…)

The answer: ANYTHING!!!

Yup, you have the right to make your smoothie with whatever healthy + awesome ingredients you want. You’re free to experiment and try ridiculous combinations, all in the name of smoothie awesomeness!! :)


Here’s usually what ends up in mine these days, when I have the ingredients and a blender (or food processor or even a Magic Bullet!):

  • Spinach and Kale
  • Banana
  • Water
  • Strawberries, Blueberries, or Mango
  • Carrot
  • Ground Flax Seed
  • Cinnamon, Ginger, and Nutmeg (freshly ground is awesome for all of these!!)
  • Ice (or frozen fruit/berries will do the trick!)
  • Optional:
    • Avocado
    • Almond Butter


My a-HA moment!

So before I was a smoothie whiz kid, here’s the video that finally showed me HOW to make smoothies – seriously, when I watched this, I literally had the “a-HA” moment! :)

I felt like Eliot was basically giving me permission to throw in whatever the hell I wanted, in whatever proportions I wanted! :)

Thanks Eliot!!


The Vegan Berry Bomb Smoothie

Here’s Eliot’s “recipe”:

  • a couple of handfuls of blueberries (frozen and fresh)
  • handful of strawberries
  • one whole apple
  • a few handfuls of baby spinach (add to taste, it gets sweet when mixed in the blender)
  • fresh mint
  • almond milk
  • protein powder
  • crushed ice
  • water

CEO a-Stirring!

And here’s a recipe I came across recently while reading a magazine! (so 20th century, I know! :)

It’s from Legal Sea Foods CEO Roger Berkowitz (check out his eating blog Fork Lift – ha, love that name!) – and it’s all about nutrition + SPEED!

Roger admits that he’s kinda lazy and anything more than stirring would be too much for him – too funny!! :)


Here’s Roger’s recipe + his notes:

Once you have the ingredients, the preparation for this breakfast smoothie should only take a minute or two.

  • In a 12 ounce cup, put a packet of Emergen-C (has to be raspberry flavored)…loaded with vitamins B and C
  • 1.5 ounces of pomegranate concentrate
  • 2-3 ounces of low fat organic yogurt (I enjoy Stonyfield…plenty of probiotics)
  • one drop of Vitamin D3 2000 IU
  • 1.5 ounces of either lemonade (some doctors believe it prevents kidney stones) or iced green tea…even better, both if you have it
  • Add 4-5 ounces of cold water and stir
