Healthy Smoothie Recipes to Keep You Filled and Energized Throughout the Day

Smoothies are known to be the go-to staple for extremely health-conscious people. Since they are filled with rich ingredients in healthy nutrients, you get to start your day off on a healthy note.

On top of that, they taste amazingly good, are incredibly easy to make, ready within seconds, and are packed with veggies and fruits. Although not every smoothie is made in the same way, many smoothie restaurants and stores sell them weighted with extra unnecessary amounts of calories and sugar- and nobody wants that.

Here are some healthy, and not to mention, delicious smoothies with the proper balance of nutrients to keep your body happy.

1. Banana-Blueberry-Soy Smoothie

Blueberries give this smoothie an extremely rich and refreshing flavor. This drink is also packed with the creaminess of a potassium-rich and vanilla banana, for a little bit of sweetness.

Preparation: All you have to do is mix 1 ¼ cups of light soy milk with ½ frozen banana, ½ a cup of blueberries, and a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. Please put it in the blender for about 20 to 30 seconds or until it’s smooth.
