Super Easy Clean Eating Smoothies


Smoothies are an amazing addition to meals and snacks when you are eating clean.

You can have smoothie during any time of the day, from breakfast to a post-workout snack, and there are an endless amount of combinations. Take a look at some of these easy smoothie tips and some ideas for putting it all together.


Formula for Making Smoothies

Before starting, here is an easy formula for putting your smoothie together:

Ice + fruit + greens (optional) + liquid + protein + optional flavorings

This is a really simple formula that will help you when creating your own smoothies. Of course, there are many variations on this and you may have just fruit and greens in your smoothie. However, this works great when you really aren’t sure what kind of smoothie you want to make. 


Simple Green Smoothie

A green smoothie is ideal for clean eating if the smoothie is replacing a meal because it helps to give you more fiber, increases the nutrients, and makes you fuller for longer. A good green smoothie includes about a cup of greens, a cup of frozen fruit, ½ frozen banana or handful of ice, ½ avocado and some liquid. You can also choose to add a little yogurt, but since you have a banana in there, it isn’t required. Here is a fun green smoothie recipe:

1 cup of kale and spinach

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 cup almond milk

½ avocado

½ frozen banana

Protein Powder (I like Garden of Life Grassfed Whey)


All Berry Smoothie

To simplify it even more, you can have a smoothie with just frozen berries. Bananas that are frozen are often used in most smoothies because they not only thicken it up and make it to where yogurt isn’t a requirement, but if it’s frozen, you don’t actually need ice. That way, if you are using fresh berries, but a frozen banana, your smoothie is cold even without the ice. So for a berry smoothie, try this simple combination:

½ cup strawberries

½ cup raspberries

½ cup blueberries

½ frozen banana

1 cup liquid – almond milk or coconut water

Breakfast Smoothie

This is where you can really get creative with it. When your smoothie is for breakfast - add in some other ingredients that turn it more into a filling breakfast. For example, you can use oats or peanut butter in your smoothie. Try a simple smoothie with:


1 small frozen banana

½ cup oats

1-2 tbsp cup peanut butter

1 tbsp maple syrup or honey

Protein Powder

1 cup almond milk
