Posted by Terra's Kitchen on Fri, Oct 2, '15

At Terra's Kitchen, we're huge fans of smoothies! Whether it's a quick, nutritious breakfast or a post-workout boost, smoothies are a delicious and easy way boost your energy and metabolism, while also ensuring you're getting the necessary health benefits from fruits and vegetables your body needs.

While the health benefits of a good smoothie are countless, we often hear that it's a struggle to come up with recipes or even how to make a good smoothie. What are the healthy ingredients and how much should you use? What can be added to a green smoothie so it doesn't taste like a liquid salad? Most want to eat healthy, but struggle with smoothie recipes that taste good in combination.

So, to make the smoothie game easier for you, our test kitchen came up with the Terra's Kitchen Top 5 Smoothie Recipes!

General Directions For All Smoothies:

1.Using a cutting board and a chef’s knife cut the necessary fresh fruit and vegetables into manageable pieces your blender can handle or purchase fresh prepped ingredients.
2. Starting with half the liquid first, add your smoothie ingredients.
3. Top off with remaining liquid and a handful of ice.
4. Blend your smoothie until smooth.
