3 Simple Smoothie Ideas


I am a smoothie addict. I have no shame. But for real, I've been drinking a smoothie a day and am trying to control myself from drinking 10 a day as the obsession is so real. Since my smoothie addiction has grown over these past few months, I thought I'd share my go to, quick and really simple smoothie recipes. They're all so tasty and it is completely acceptable to drink these when it's cold, because they're just that good!

Smoothies are so easy to make and can be really healthy without a bunch of fancy ingredients. So if you're on a budget, or just need quick smoothie ideas to make if you're on the go or don't want to be spending any more than 5 minutes in the kitchen, then these will be perfect for you. There are no more than 5 ingredients in all of these smoothies,  so if you're anything like me then you probably already have these things lying around in your fridge/freezer and cupboard!


- 1 cup of frozen mango
- 1/4 cup frozen papaya
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 cup coconut water (or less depending on desired consistency)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds *optional

Simple throw all these ingredients into a blender until completely combined. The chia seeds are optional, but I personally add these to near enough every smoothie I make as they are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, and provide iron, calcium and fibre. You can't even taste them as they have no flavour, they're just a sneaky little extra that will help your body. This smoothie is so refreshing and is perfect for those warmer days when you're in need of a cool down.

Strawberry & Banana:

- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1 cup plant milk of choice ( I love coconut or almond)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds / 1 tbsp flax seeds *optional

Place the frozen strawberries in your blender first, then add the banana, plant milk and then finally the chia seeds / flax seeds. I've noticed how this makes a huge difference when blending frozen ingredients in my Nutribullet as it blends a lot smoother and quicker. Again, it's completely optional as to whether or not you add chia seeds or flax seeds, but they add omega - 3, so it's definitely worth adding them into your diet when you can.


- 2 frozen bananas
- 2 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1 tsp maca *optional
- 1/2 cup hazelnut milk

Simply add the frozen bananas first, then add the oats, cacao powder, maca and hazelnut milk and blend! This is one of my favourites, especially for breakfast as it keeps you full by adding in the oats. This smoothie is a lot thicker than the others, but is just as tasty. The maca powder is optional, but is a great extra as it gives a caramel - type taste. I always opt for hazelnut milk for this smoothie as it sort makes it taste like Nutella, it's sooo good.

I have so many more recipe ideas I'd love to share with you all, but since I'm obsessed with smoothies right now, I just had to share these with you today!
