Summer Smoothie Recipes

A while back I posted my top 3 favorite smoothies recipes which seemed to get a lot of love. So here is an updated version of my latest smoothie obsessions perfect for the summer.

Banana Smoothie Milkshake


This smoothie tastes just like a vanilla milkshake! It’s deliciously creamy and fills you up for several hours, making a great meal replacement. Rather than indulge in a caloric milkshake, try out this nutritious and delicious smoothie recipe.


  • one and a half bananas
  • quarter to half cup of milk
  • dash of cinnamon
  • teaspoon of honey (raw and unfiltered)

Orange You Happy Smoothie

  • one carrot
  • one peeled orange
  • quarter to half cup of water
  • juice from half of a lemon

For a bit of chill add ice, or for a nutritional boost add chia seeds to these sweet and tangy smoothie recipes. Smoothies have taken over my breakfast menu. I love making smoothies because it starts my day off with some much needed healthy motivation. Let me know which of these recipes is your favorite and don’t forget to check out my previous smoothie recipes as well!

By the way, sorry I haven’t posted anything for a long time. I am back to posting weekly so be sure to check back next week! Have a great summer everyone!
