Happy New Year everyone! 

Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions yet? 

If you are striving to eat healthier this year, then let these healthy fruit smoothie recipes be my gift to you!

These fruit smoothies are our favorite breakfast meal replacement smoothie ever. With this basic recipe, you can adjust the frozen fruit you use and the fruit juice to make any of these five recipes as well as make up your own, as so many other combinations are equally delicious.

And, if you are not vegan, that’s okay, don’t let the vegan in the title trip you up, we are just using almond milk instead of regular milk and the taste is fabulous.

You might find some of the breakfast smoothie ingredients sound a little strange, but trust me on this one, they are delicious and will keep you going until lunch!

We use three different types of seeds: chia seeds, golden flaxseeds and raw pumpkin seeds.

Chia seeds, golden flaxseeds and raw pumpkin seeds are used in this delicious fruit smoothie recipe!

These seeds are so good for your health. 

In spite of their tiny size, chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various nutrients like calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin B3, potassium, vitamin B1 and vitamin B2.

Golden flax seeds contain essential fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. They are also an excellent source of dietary fiber and are also contain iron, calcium and potassium.

Pumpkin seeds are also high in protein and fiber and contain copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, protein, vitamin A, vitamin B, and zinc.

In addition, we add a tablespoon of almond butter for more protein to make this fruit smoothie like a protein breakfast shake that will stick with you for hours to keep the hunger pangs away. If you want more protein, just add some protein powder and enjoy!

For some healthy fat, we add a tablespoon of coconut oil. If you want to add more coconut flavor, you can use coconut butter instead. If you want to lower the calories, you can leave the coconut oil out all together. This is your healthy breakfast smoothie, so make it like you like it!

How to Make a Fruit Smoothie

Okay, so with the background out of the way, let’s see how to make these delicious fruit smoothies.

To activate the enzymes in the seeds in this recipe for easier digestion, soak the seeds in water ahead of time. The water should cover the seeds and soak for at least 30 minutes, but overnight is preferred if you have the time. Cover the glass with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for the soaking and to get them cool for your smoothie.

After the seeds are soaked, assemble the rest of your ingredients.

Notes

Please note that the nutrition information is for the Strawberry and Blueberry Vegan Smoothie recipe.

If you like your smoothies a little colder, just add a few ice cubes before blending.

Feel free to add more fruit or fruit juice if you like. My husband likes to put a cup and a half of frozen fruit in his and use 1/2 cup of fruit juice instead of 1/4 cup of juice and 1/4 cup of water.
