21 New Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies and juices are a great way to get a ton of fruits and veggies into your body without having to eat huge salads all day long. But which ones actually taste good?

Well, I’m trying out a new recipe everyday for 21 days and will post a photo, recipe and honest review on what is worth making and which ones can be skipped over. Everyday, I will update this post with a new recipe so check back daily for updates.

For all of these recipes, I am using a Nutribullet blender that I got from Bed Bath and Beyond. It is the best $99 I have ever spent in my life and I encourage everyone to buy one because you will become as addicted as me. Click here to check it out & buy.

Please note: for the recipes, I generally do 50% of a vegetable, then fill the rest and use the liquid line in the nutribullet cup. Feel free to experiment with the proportions! This is what is so fun about cooking or making things yourself, they can be whatever you want. So if I don’t have a measurement, this is why.

Pineapple Dream

  • green leaf lettuce
  • frozen pinapple
  • mint leaves
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • coconut water

Green leaf lettuce is really easy to digest instead of using something like kale, which really can clean out your system if you aren’t used to it. So this is a great beginner smoothie using greens. This type of lettuce is also high in water so this turned out more like a juice than a smoothie because the lettuce was very watery. If you want to to be more like a smoothie, be sure to use frozen pineapple and even add in some ice. But the good thing about it being so high in water was that it is really hydrating. This was very refreshing because of the mint and lime. The strong taste of the pineapple took over the lettuce so you couldn’t even taste it. This is a great summer drink that tasted GREAT! RECOMMENDATION: MAKE IT!

Day 2

Very Berry Smoothie

  • frozen blueberries
  • fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • ginger (optional if you don’t like ginger)
  • vanilla almond milk

This berry smoothie is great for kids or if you don’t like veggies either. Cucumer is great because they have a lot of water so just like the last smoothie, it is hydrating to your body. The taste of cucumbers are so faint, you will hardly taste the veggies mixed in with these yummy berries. If you want it to be more like a smoothie, use all frozen fruits and add in some ice cubes to make it thicker. RECOMMENDATION: Make it but switch the vanilla almond milk for regular and use less ginger

Day 3

Stomach Soothing Bananna Smoothie

  • bananna
  • baby bok choy
  • ginger
  • mint
  • chia seeds
  • coconut water

Smoothies can help with lots of health problems like times when you have an upset stomach. Bananas are perfect for tummy aches so this smoothie is really good for your digestive system. Ginger also aids in digestion and is something I often add to smoothies or teas to feel better instantly. The only think I didn’t like about this smoothie was the taste of the bok choy. I would switch it with a green leaf lettuce or some cucumber instead so the taste isn’t as strong. Recommendation: its ok, just switch the bok choy for a different green

Day 4


Mango Mint Smoothie

  • frozen mango
  • cucumber
  • mint
  • ginger
  • coconut water

This was truly a smoothie because I used so much frozen mango so I liked this slushy texture. Mango helps aid in digestion as well as mint and ginger. Mango Mint tastes refreshing, cooling and even though it is green you don’t taste any veggies. RECOMMENDATION: make it!

Day 5


Berry Banana Energizing Smoothie

  • frozen banana
  • frozen blueberries
  • green leaf lettuce
  • mint
  • flax seed oil
  • coconut water

You need some sort of sugars for your body, but instead of eating candy … get the good kind from your fruits and veggies which will help girl you energy. I’ve also added in some flax seed oil into this smoothie, which I regularly do, and this is to add in some omega 3 fatty acids (the good fats!) It tastes great, the frozen fruits made it more of a smoothie texture and the color is really pretty! RECOMMENDATION: MAKE IT!

Check back soon and I will resume this post with Day 6’s new recipe, bookmark this page to easily find!

  1. Bought a nutri bullet back in March and have loved using it every morning experimenting with different veggies, fruits, chia seeds, and flax seeds. Will have to try this recipe, it sounds sooo good!!

  2. Hi,
    I’m huge into smoothies and think this is a great idea. What kind of green leaf lettuce did you use?

  3. Love these recipes, Marianna! For the day 3 juice, try switching the bok choy for some spinach! You can barely feel it and mostly just feel the banana :) xo

  4. Hey Marianna,
    Discovered you on insta a few months ago and im OBSESSED with you and your blog. I love how you touch a bunch of subjects (mostly makeup). I must try these smoothies I have the magic bullet and I have been using it like crazy lately but im lactose intolerant so these give me more ideas. THANK YOU;)

  5. HI Marianna, its Melissa @lisslaughlove from Instagram I am currently taking time away from social media to center myself more spiritually (LOVING IT BY THE WAY), and I just needed to tell you that trying these few smoothies has been such a little blessing during this time. There is just something special that resonates within me when I’m eating healthy and your smoothie ideas are the perfect kickstart for my day. I really hope you are uploading more ideas soon. Thanks again. PS: Trying Kylie’s lip look tomorrow.
