I love smoothies and it’s a great way to get fruits and vegetables down me. I’m also a very lazy person especially when it comes to feeding myself. That is why smoothies are such a great option. Having said that I am very lazy, when I’m making a smoothie I want to peel and cut as little as possible.
I just like to wash it and throw it in the blender. That’s why I like to use frozen fruit when I can. That’s also why I went looking for the best quick and easy smoothie recipes. I even hate the clean up. How do I not die from starvation because I’m so lazy?
Well, I think these recipes will help you out as much as they have helped me. Just for some advice, I know that fresh fruits taste better than canned ones. A can of pineapple is a lot easier to open than cutting up a fresh pineapple.
Hint Hint! You can even freeze a can of pineapple and put it in the blender frozen. Just let it thaw enough in the can so that you can get it out of the can. Run some hot water over for a couple minutes and you can dig it out easily.

Quick & Easy Smoothie Recipes
1. Tropical Paleo Green Smoothie – My Natural Family
The best part of smoothies is how easy they are to make. Most people can handle tossing fruits and vegetables into a blender. Make sure to actually measure the greens. I like to use coconut milk from a can because I think it has the best flavor but you can use it from a carton if you want to.
The avocado is my secret ingredient. It helps keep things from separating and makes it smooth and creamy without any weird avocado taste. I add a couple drops of essential oil to make it refreshing and to add flavor too.
2. Breakfast Energy Smoothie – Deliciously Sprinkled
Orange Juice – Yogurt – Vanilla – Frozen Berries
This smoothie is perfect to make when you’re in a hurry and running out the door at breakfast time. It’s easy to put it in a cup with a lid so you can drink it on the run. You can drink it while you’re sitting in traffic or at a stop light. PLEASE don’t drink it while you’re driving.
It’ll give you the energy you need to get to lunch time. You can choose the frozen berries you like but I find it convenient to just buy the bags of mixed berries. That makes it really easy.
3. Triple Berry Kiwi Smoothie – The Pretty Bee
Frozen Strawberries – Frozen Raspberries – Frozen Blueberries – Kiwi – Orange Juice
Here we have a smoothie that is full of vitamin C and antioxidants from the kiwi and all the berries. Interesting fact I bet you may not already know. One kiwi contains one hundred percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. It also contains a far-free rare form of vitamin E.
Another fact you may not know is that the darker the berries, they contain more antioxidants. Since that’s the case you may want to add some blackberries to make it even more healthy. Orange juice was added for the calcium and vitamin C but you could use water instead of maybe even cranberry juice. Any of them are delicious.
4. Blueberry Banana Coconut Smoothie – Fox and Briar
I love blueberries and my 6 year old daughters absolutely devours them. We buy a big bag of frozen blueberries from Costco and she just eats them frozen with her fingers. A blueberry smoothie just seems wonderful to me. The almond butter adds some protein and flavor. There is a link to a toasted almond butter recipe but if you want this to be be really easy either make it ahead or just buy some regular almond butter.
5. Yogurt Strawberry Banana Smoothie – Eating On A Dime
Fruit Juice of Your Choice – Banana – Frozen Strawberries – Greek Yogurt
This smoothie is made with kids in mind but of course, it isn’t just for kids. It’s made with any kind of fruit juice you’d like. It’s been made with orange juice, apple juice and grape juice. You can make it with water instead or half water to cut down on the sugar but realize it won’t be as sweet.
It’s made with Greek yogurt because it of the added protein and creaminess. The kids won’t know whether you use Greek yogurt or regular yogurt. It can be made without the yogurt but I’d say to add an extra banana if you do that.
6. Banana Cherry Smoothie – The Salty Marshmallow
Milk – Frozen Cherries – Banana – Yogurt – Almond Extract
If you’re a cherry lover but want the easy way out frozen cherries are definitely the way to go. I think cherries are a pain to cut open and take the pits out. Since they are so small it means you need a bunch of them and have to do it a million times and that’s time consuming.
When you open a bag of frozen cherries, that’s all done for you. The secret ingredient here is the almond extract. It adds another lever of flavor which makes it unusual and delicious. If you don’t like almond flavor use vanilla extract instead.
7. Kick Booty Kale Pineapple Smoothie – Well Plated
If you’re afraid of kale or think you don’t like it you have got to try this smoothie. I think you’ll consider changing your mind. The secret is to that the banana, pineapple, and honey sweeten up the kale and mellow out it’s flavor. Don’t let the color make your run the other way. Just remember than the darker the color green of veggies the healthier they are for you. If it wasn’t for the green color you may not even know the kale is in there.
8. Strawberry Grapefruit Smoothie – Melanie Makes
Red Grapefruit – Banana – Frozen Strawberries – Orange Juice
If you’ve never thought of making a smoothie with grapefruit now’s the time to change your mind. The grapefruit adds such a refreshing flavor. If you use a frozen banana it will help make it stay colder longer. The secret to making the perfect smoothie of any kind but especially this one is the blender.
It’s a cold hard fact but all blenders are not created equal. If you use a Vitamix you can throw the grapefruit in whole after it’s peeled and it will chop that baby up in a snap. I do have to admit that a Vitamix blender can be pricey. So, if you don’t have one don’t feel bad, my Mom doesn’t have one either.
9. Strawberry Banana Smoothie with Pineapple – Brooklyn Farm Girl
Strawberries – Banana – Fresh Pineapple – Milk of Your Choice – Ice Cubes
This is about as easy as it gets. It’s the classic smoothie everyone thinks of when they first learn about smoothies. I means what’s more classic than bananas and strawberries. The pineapple gives it a tropical taste and the milk makes it creamy. This recipe is meant to be made with fresh fruits. If you want to use frozen fruits I would say to forget using the ice cubes.
I think frozen fruits are a lot easier, but of course, fresh is always nice too. I just like how I don’t have to stem the strawberries, wash and cut them up. Same thing goes for the pineapple, especially the pineapple, I hate cutting off the outside of the pineapple. Just open a bag and throw it in the blender. So much easier in my opinion.
