10 Simple Summer Smoothie Recipes That Are Filling and Quick

Do you know what’s the poster child for “healthy eating”? It’s summer smoothies. The majority of people grab one as a substitute for breakfast or even other meals throughout the day. Well, due to lack of proper planning, it’s very easy for that simple yet yummy smoothie to fall short. Especially when it comes to proper nutrition.

An important point to keep in mind is whether or not your summer smoothie is robust enough to be considered a meal substitute—meaning, is it really comparable to a filling meal?

Perhaps a better way to determine whether you’re hitting the nutritional and time-saving benchmark is if your smoothie keeps you filled for at least three hours? Also, does it contain a good amount of the main macronutrients?

5 Simple Summer Smoothie Recipes

Below are some of our favorite smoothie recipes. A refreshing treat for summer without taking much time. Feel free to tweak and add your favorite extras for a delicious summer sip.

A general rule is, simply to combine all the mentioned ingredients in a blender and blend together. You can also add water as needed to get the desired consistency.

Tangy Strawberry Smoothie

You will need:

  • 1 cup soy, pea, or even dairy milk
  • ¾ cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. Chia seeds
  • ½ cup silken tofu
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • ½ banana

Well, Silken tofu is one of the excellent ways to add an extra dose of protein to any smoothie. Silken Tofu blends really well. This protein burst makes for a bright and creamy smoothie with the summer flavor you deserve!

Bright Red Beet Smoothie

You will need:

  • 1 cup soy, pea, or dairy milk
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 tbsp. flaxseeds
  • 1 medium-sized beet, peeled and cooked

When you add Beets into a smoothie, it results in a bright pop of color. Beets also pair perfectly with berries and bananas. Just add your favorite milk base and sprinkle in some flaxseeds for a nutritious dose of omega-3 fats.

Mixed Berry and Zucchini Smoothie

You will need:

  • 1½ cups mixed berries
  • 2 tbsp. walnuts
  • ¼ avocado
  • 1 cup uncooked chopped zucchini
  • ¾ cup Greek yogurt

Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables. The best part it plays in a summer smoothie is, it blends really well. Plus, no need to worry about having any weird aftertaste at all. You can trust me on that!

Wait before you toss some walnuts into the blender for super omega-3s, some protein, and fiber too.

Sweet Potato Cinnamon Smoothie

You will need:

  • 1 cup soy, pea, or dairy milk
  • ¾ cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 small banana
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon

Sweet potatoes are best to add a subtle touch of sweetness to your satisfying summer smoothie. Cinnamon gives it an extra kick of heat so you can skip it during the summer. In short, this smoothie is ideal for when the weather is pleasant in summer. It is a protein-packed smoothie that will definitely fill you up for a few hours.

Blueberry Pie Smoothie

  • 2 cups wild frozen blueberries (a few extra for garnish)

  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt

This is my favorite blueberry pie recipe to date—in smoothie form! Blueberries are highly packed with antioxidants and are relatively very low in calories. As a result, they are a perfect choice for those trying to lose weight while enjoying summer.

If you eat a healthier diet, this recipe is just for you. We all hate those summer days that are just too hot for pie baking, why not try this smoothie? For a magical twist of tartness, add some frozen blackberries.

This fruity and refreshing smoothie is as pretty as its taste. If you are someone who is trying to cut back on added sugars or even artificial sweeteners, Florida Sunset Smoothie is the best way to satisfy your sweet tooth. All with natural ingredients. Also, you can easily substitute any of the fruits for papaya, kiwis, peaches, or apricots.

Bright Green Mango Smoothie

You will need:

  • 1 cup soy, pea, or dairy milk

Avocados are the best to add a layer of creaminess to any smoothie. If you make this green and fresh smoothie with frozen mango, get ready to enjoy it year-round. Finish the blending process by adding in some chia seeds for a boost of fiber and protein. Due to its beautiful color, this smoothie looks even prettier when served in champagne bottles wholesale.
