How to Boost Smoothies

You can easily turn any of these fruit smoothies into a meal or just cut down on the natural sugar with the tips below. Have you ever boosted your smoothie? If not, give it a try!

Healthy Fat

Your body needs healthy fat to process protein and carbs. Since smoothies contain carbohydrates from fruits and veggies, add a bit of healthy fat to round out the recipe. A few of my go-to healthy fats are:

AlmondsCoconut Oil
AvocadoFlaxseed
CashewsHemp Hearts
Chia SeedsMCT Oil

Plant-Based Protein

The right protein can turn any smoothie into a quick, fast meal. I like using homemade protein powder without any sweetener or gums to weigh it down. Superfoods like hemp hearts or chia seeds add protein, healthy fat and fiber to any smoothie.

Leafy Greens

If your typical daily smoothie includes leafy greens, then don’t be afraid to add them to any of these fruit smoothies! No need to alter the recipe other than adding a handful of your favorite green like spinach or kale.

Fruit Smoothies FAQs

What fruits are best for smoothies?

If you like the fruit, then use it in a smoothie! As you can see from my fruit smoothie list, I use a variety of fruits, from citrus to stone and more. I love discovering new fruit combinations, too, so the sky’s the limit! Some of my favorite fruit starters are mango, banana or pineapple. Pick one of those, pair it with one other fruit and choose a liquid base like water or plant-based milk. Mix and match until you find a winner!

Are fruit smoothies healthy?

They can be! I use 100% real fruit in my smoothies, with no weird additives and no added sugar. To lower the natural sugars from fruit, choose low glycemic fruits in your smoothies, or boost your smoothie with protein + healthy fat to help your body break down the natural sugars.

Do you put ice in smoothies?

That’s a great question! I prefer smoothies without ice, yet I want to keep my smoothie cold. To do this, I add at least one frozen fruit to each smoothie. You can buy fresh fruit and freeze it, or buy frozen fruit; both are great options!
