35 Healthy Smoothie Recipes to Brighten Up Your Mornings

Introducing the tastiest way to sneak in all your fruits and veggies before noon.

Even thought they're chock full of nutrients, smoothies don't have to be boring. These healthy smoothie recipes are anything but, featuring sweet, colorful frozen fruit (and veggies!), unexpected herbs and spices and creamy add-ins like yogurt and banana to make the dreamiest sips ever. Plus, smoothies make the best quick breakfasts that you can enjoy on the go or as you sit down at your desk. They're a great way to make use of leftover fresh fruit or to sneak in some extra superfoods that you wouldn't normally eat on their own. First, learn how to make a smoothie like a total pro (hint: there's a certain order you should add ingredients to the blender!) then get ready to mix up a tasty breakfast or snack that's good for you, too. Nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables and protein-filled yogurt and milk will give you an energy boost that will keep you going until lunch.

Our Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances Lab also tested the best blenders for whipping up the smoothest, creamiest drinks. The Vitamix E310 Explorian nabbed our top spot, but check out the KitchenAid 3 Speed Ice Crushing Blender as a budget buy or the NutriBullet Blender Combo for single-serve options. To make smoothies ahead of time, stash your dry ingredients (such as fruits, vegetables, powders and seeds) in the freezer in freezer-safe bags or food storage containers. In the morning, just add your liquid to the blender, followed by the frozen dry ingredients and blend. Breakfast in 5 minutes? Easy!
