Healthy Smoothie Recipes : An Assortment of Healthy Smoothies Including Banana Smoothie With Almond Milk and Clover Honey, Celery and Green Apple Smoothie, Carrot, Orange and Peach Smoothie, and Broccoli and Pear Smoothie
Healthy smoothies are fun to make and healthy smoothies are gratifying to drink. Vegetables, fruit and water are examples of key ingredients for making the healthiest smoothies. The sweetness in the fruits adds nice flavors to the vegetables and there is no need for added refined sugar in the healthy smoothie.
One secret to having healthy smoothies that look appealing and are great for presentation is to stick with similar colors for the ingredients of each smoothie. For example, when you are making a healthy smoothie where the main ingredient is a green vegetable such as broccoli, maybe you would like to have an accompanying ingredient that is a fruit with a green or greenish hue. I love to match smoothie ingredients according to color at times and this method yields smoothies with very rich and enticing colors, no artificial coloring added. Take a look at that orange one. These dynamic colorful drinks become intriguing to the taster and kids are especially excited to try these healthy smoothie drinks.
Smoothie Recipe : Banana Smoothie with Almond Milk and Clover Honey
A banana smoothie that is made with bananas, almond milk and clover honey will be a creamy pale yellow color and rich and creamy texture. The banana smoothie will look very appetizing when presented and the banana smoothie will taste good too.
For the banana smoothie with almond milk and clover honey, you will just need the
- Almond milk

Smoothie Recipe : Celery and Green Apple Smoothie
Celery has many cleansing benefits for your good health. Celery and green apple are a great combination for a smoothie. These smoothie ingredients when combined in the blender will yield a green color. For the celery and green apple smoothie, you will need just three ingredients. The celery and green apple smoothie ingredients are:
- Green apples
For the celery and green apple smoothie, you can wash and dry two green apples, and three celery stalks. The celery stalks can be cut in half.
Put the water into the blender first, then submerge the halved celery stalks and green apples, cut into slices into the water in the blender. Blend all ingredients well. The less water you use, the more rich and strong the flavor of the smoothie will be. Depending on taste, 8-12 ounces of water will be a good amount to blend with these celery and green apple ingredients.

Simple 2 ingredient Broccoli and Pear Smoothie
Broccoli and pear is another great combination for a smoothie. There will be a consistent rich green color to this smoothie as opposed to a muddled color from ingredients consisting of foods of many different colors.
