PLANT BASED MEAL PLANNER

Vegan Smoothie | Citrus Breeze


This simple, fruity Vegan Smoothie is jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients to help you fuel your passion.

Plant-based eating is becoming more and more popular (hello Beyonce!). People are looking to add more plants to their diet because the results don’t lie. And well, that’s our goal here at SGS. We want to inspire everyone to eat more plants and blend green smoothies with us.

This vegan smoothie contains some of my favorite, and easily accessible fruit: pineapple, oranges, banana, and mango. You can blend this vegan smoothie any time of year. The ingredients are available year-round fresh and frozen. Pretty sweet!

Add Plants, Crave More, Live Better

The more plants you add to your diet, the more you’ll start to crave them. That’s exactly what happened to me when I first started drinking green smoothies. (I didn’t dive fully into vegan smoothies in the beginning, yet I quickly realized the results get even better when you do!)

I hadn’t been giving my body the right kind of fuel. Instead of relying on a diet full of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, I was living off of coffee, Lucky Charms, and mac n’ cheese. I was the world’s unhealthiest vegetarian. Well, that all changed after that first taste of a green smoothie.

Thanks to childhood pickiness, portrayal in the media, and the color green, a lot of people think they don’t like veggies, especially leafy greens. By leaving those out of the diet, the body misses out on so many nutrients that it can’t get from other places. Vitamins and supplements still aren’t as good as eating your fruits and veggies.

How This Vegan Smoothie Can Change Your Life

Eating and living healthy starts with the desire to do so. It can be a scary thing to do. And I’m not suggesting everyone needs to adopt a vegan diet and lifestyle. I live by a “you do you” mantra. But it almost goes without saying that most people could benefit from eating more plants.

During the day the majority of us are accustomed to three meals and a few snacks. Swap one of those with a green smoothie and see what happens. If you’re like me, you’ll find your energy start to soar. Your tastebuds will change. You’ll start craving more plants. And who knows? Maybe it will inspire you to make other healthy changes like going for a daily walk, practicing good sleep hygiene (we even have a green smoothie that helps promote good sleep!)

My point is you don’t have to go crazy. Start with one thing: a green smoothie, and see where it takes you. Green smoothies have taken me on a journey to other nations, they’ve fueled my body to run marathons, they’ve given me energy to be a girl boss, a wife, a mother, and all of the other roles I fulfill.

    You can’t go wrong with pineapple!!

    Loved this one. Used tinned mandarin slices in juice for the orange as i really dont have time for peeling and chopping. Added some avocado also for healthy fats. Delicious and refreshing.

    That sounds really delicious, Neal!

    Thanks for sharing that with us.

    I usually don’t like smoothies with oranges but once noticed that in the recipe instructions that you blend the oranges with the spinach and water, I ended up loving this recipe!

    I am so glad that our little tip made you love oranges in your smoothie! It really makes a huge difference when blending 🙂

    Very good, made me want to go to a beach and sit in the sun!

    I wish this smoothie could make that happen right now!

    Hmm… I thought I would love this one because of all the yummy fruits, but I still just tasted the banana. I may try it again with less banana, or avocado instead.

  10. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    January 29th, 2019 at 12:46 pm

    Feel free to do half and half or swap completely for the avocado!

    Your smoothie will still have that delicious creaminess too.

    Cheers!

    Added 1/2 lemon (juiced) and 2 stalks celery to this(usually I had these to all my smoothies).
    A keeper 🙂

    Way to get in some extra nutrients! Sounds delicious =P

    Liked this but the orange does take over a bit in terms of flavor. I am going back down the orange a bit and hope then the other flavors stand out.

  14. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    January 29th, 2019 at 12:50 pm

    The orange might not be for everyone so if you need to add less and more of another fruit that is totally fine! You make this smoothie work for you.

    This was one of my favorites so far. We were out of pineapple so we made it without and it was still delicious! I am looking forward to trying it with pineapple soon!

  18. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    January 29th, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    If you liked this smoothie without pineapple then I know you will love it with the added pineapple!! 🙂

    I have a severely allergic reaction to pineapples so I added a cup of mango instead and kept everything else the same, I ended up making another one around three for a snack ..Love love this smoothie..
