Smoothie recipes

Take the ingredients listed and put them in a high powered blender (I use a Blendtec Pro 800). Blend until you like the consistency. A minute is likely sufficient.


Green banana and vanilla

Use maple syrup to adjust the sweetness to preference, but is quite tasty even when not very sweet.

Exotic dried fruit and also banana

Extremely sweet.

Rhubarb and strawberries

Somewhat tart. Add maple syrup to add a bit of sweetness if you wish, but not too much. The rhubarb is the point.


Pear, pineapple, almond

A little grainy due to the pears, but the taste is quite fresh.

Papaya, mango, and pineapple juice

Make sure you use sufficient ice cubes and/or juice to make it fairly liquid. Not particularly sweet, but decently refreshing.

Papaya and banana

Not as sweet as expected. Very fresh.

Vanilla soy milk orange

I think it’s OK, but my partner says it “tastes like disease” (and she works at a hospital, so I guess she’d know).

Blackberry, pineapple, kiwi, and passion fruit

Tastes a bit like red berry juice, but with the spiciness of kiwis. Way too many seeds.

Cucumber and spinach

Not very sweet, but an acceptable way to ingest lots of vegetables. The kiwis help make the taste more interesting.

Grapefruit yogurt

Both sweet and bitter. Probably better without the grapefruit.


Grapefruit spinach

Much more bitter than I expected.

Orange with peel

Produces a disgusting chunky high-viscosity jelly. Probably impossible to actually drink. If you blend in some water (or presumably ice cubes) it may become possible to drink, but you still don’t want to. Awful taste and awful texture. Don’t think you can make orange juice this way.
