Healthy fruit smoothie recipes
Get any blender by your side! We are going to do a lot of blending in this session.
Banana Cinnamon Smoothie
All you need is some banana slices, yoghurt (simple or vanilla flavoured), and a tablespoon of honey and cinnamon beads! Blend the contents in a mixer. You can add ginger instead of the cinnamon.
Also, adding a little ice would not harm you, if you don’t have cold.

Blueberry Banana and Green Tea Smoothie
This is the richest antioxidant smoothie. Blueberry and the green tea make it rich and healthy for you. Take about 3 tablespoon of water. You will need a green tea bag and some honey. Take a banana and slice it into small pieces.
Take the icy blueberries, that is, they must be frozen. Take some soymilk and make sure that it has the least fat content.
Now, heat water till it becomes steaming hot. Now, add the green tea bag and let the contents of the bag disperse the flavour into the hot water. Let it brew for about 3 minutes and then remove the tea bag.
You can add honey to sweeten your green tea. Now, on the other hand, take the rest of the ingredients- the berries, banana and the milk. Add some crushed ice and blend. In one or three rounds, put the green tea prepared.
Make it smooth. If it is not smooth and has lumps, then we would not call it a “smoothie”, right?
Pour it in the glass and decorate it according to your own creativity!

Buy the seedless watermelon or remove seeds from the pieces you put. Take the watermelon slices and only very little fat free milk. Add some ice while you blend the ingredients. Bring the consistency in your smoothie and pour into the glass.

Easy healthy smoothie recipes
While cooking, we always wish for the recipes which are less time consuming and which require less effort. The ingredients should be common and readily available, and the method of cooking should be really simple.
And, on top of all these pre-requisites, we wish that the recipe should be healthy and tasty. This may sound a little impossible because all-in-one packages are very rare and selective.
But, smoothie recipes are the easiest. When you have a very efficient blender and the ingredients available, blending is just an action of 5 minutes. And, when we talk about the healthy component, then clearly the ingredients we have in the smoothies are fresh and healthy. Then, why not opt for a healthy smoothie recipe?
This healthy smoothie recipe has just 3 ingredients, and you can have your own versions and combinations. Get any flavour yoghurt. Get the plain one, we suggest. Make sure it is fat free.
Take about half a cup of any fruit juice. You can take the fresh homemade juice or buy a packed one from the market. Then, take any fruit- either the berries or the apples. You can also use the pineapple, peaches or bananas.
Remember to use the frozen fruits. You can use some almonds in this smoothie.
Put all the ingredients in a blender, and make it smooth.
