In the distant future, let’s say the year 3020, I would assume food would be consumed differently. Everything would revolve around efficiency.

Instead of “real food”, we’d all be eating pills, powders, and shakes of sorts. Turkey and stuffing shake for Thanksgiving? Roasted salmon with spiced cauliflower in conveniently packaged bars? Or how about three meals worth of calories and nutrients in an easy to swallow pill?

Perhaps I read too many sci-fi and fantasy books. But if that is really how the future of food looks like, I think I’ll just live off of fruit and veggie smoothies.

a work week’s of fruit and vegetable smoothies

Still recovering from the holiday indulgent eat-a-thon, I’m trying to start the day with fruits and veggies, instead of pancakes and lattes.

While I’m still on the fence whether smoothies are truly “healthy,” I think these smoothies are super tasty. I feel so much better starting the day off with something bright and fresh. I have yet to try making smoothies with oats or nuts, but for now, these are my favorites!

Once upon a time I was skeptical about green smoothies. Spinach in my drink? Yuck. But ever since trying my first green smoothie circa 2014, I’ve been hooked.

5 fruit and veggie smoothies: Ginger Banana Green Smoothie

Ginger Banana Green Smoothie:

This one is my favorite of the series. The combination of ginger, banana, and mango is so tropical and invigorating. The ginger really packs a punch and I LOVE IT!

  • 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 medium banana
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 cup mango chunks, frozen
  • handful fresh baby kale leaves
  • handful fresh baby spinach leaves

Banana Mango Green Smoothie:

This is the perfect introduction to green smoothies. The sweetness of bananas and apple juice masks any flavor from the kale and spinach.

  • 1/2 medium banana
  • 1 cup mango chunks, frozen
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 cup apple juice, or fresh apple cider
  • 2 handfuls fresh baby kale leaves
  • 1 handful fresh baby spinach leaves

5 fruit and veggie smoothies: Wheatgrass Green Smoothie

Wheatgrass Green Smoothie:

This is the green smoothie for advanced drinkers. Made with concentrated wheatgrass powder, this smoothie is earthy. The pomegranate juice and frozen raspberries add a much needed tartness that balances this smoothie.

  • 1 cup apple juice, or fresh apple cider
  • 1 1/2 tsp wheatgrass powder
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 handfuls fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1 handful fresh baby kale leaves
  • 1/4 cup raspberries, frozen
  • 1/4 cup mango chunks, frozen

All Fruit Mixed Berry Smoothie

Mixed Berry Smoothie:

If the green smoothies are too much for you, this super antioxidant smoothie is an excellent starting point. Made with a combination of frozen berries, this smoothie is tart yet satisfying. For addition nutrition (and to cut through all the fruit), a little yogurt would blend in perfectly.

  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup blackberries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup raspberries, frozen

Raspberry Strawberry Fruit Smoothie

Raspberry Strawberry Fruit Smoothie:

This is the kind of smoothie that could totally pass as a dessert. It’s bright vibrant color is inviting. The combination of apple juice and frozen raspberries and strawberries creates an almost sorbet like smoothie. It’s a delicious anytime treat.

  • 1 cup apple juice, or fresh apple cider
  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • 1 cup raspberries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, frozen
