Vegetable smoothies…green, earthy, stuffed to the gunnels with raw kale…is your mouth watering yet?

Probably not – and that’s where we come in, with healthy vegetable smoothie recipes that are as nutritious as they are delicious.

You can drink vegetable smoothies for weight loss, as part of a healthy diet, or just because you fancy blasting through your five a day in scrummy liquid form!

Vegetable smoothies in all the colours of the rainbow!

Veggie smoothies tend to have very bright, appealing colours, which reflect their key ingredients, from red, to green to orange!

We all know the somewhat infamous ‘green smoothies’. The best vegetables for green smoothies are probably kale and spinach.

Kale and spinach are powerhouses of nutrition, so they make for super healthy vegetable smoothies, packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

Unfortunately, they aren’t always the most immediately appealing flavours, which is why green smoothies get a bit of a bad rep!

However, if you know how to make them properly, you can get all the nutritional goodness of greens in a vegetable smoothie that tastes good.

One top tip is to add a bit of salt to any smoothie containing kale, as this cuts out bitterness from the raw kale.

If you’re looking for a place to start, we’ve found one of the best green smoothie recipes, which talks you through the building blocks of a delicious green smoothie.

You can also find a lot of red vegetable smoothies, most of which take beetroot as a base.

Beetroot is a fantastic ingredient for veggie smoothies because it has a fairly bland flavour and is an amazing source of fibre, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Not to mention its incredible colour!

A glass full of goodness

Aside from the specific health benefits of key ingredients in vegetable smoothie recipes, we have made sure that all these smoothies meet some basic healthy nutritional requirements.

For starters (and a bit of a no-brainer), each smoothie has at least one portion of veg.

Furthermore, none of them have any more than a teaspoon of added sweetener. This means that almost all their sweetness comes from the natural sugars of fruit and veg, rather than simple sugars such as honey or maple syrup.

Natural sugars release energy slower than simple sugars, meaning you will be fuelled for longer and won’t experience as sharp a spike in blood sugar levels.

None of these vegetable smoothie recipes have any more than 16g fat, of which no more than 5g is saturated. This keeps the overall calorie count low and makes sure that the fat you are consuming is the healthier, unsaturated kind!

Finally, we have made sure to pick the most fibrous veggie smoothies: each recipe contains at least 5g fibre per serving. This means they keep you full for as long as possible!

We hope you enjoy whizzing up some super healthy, super tasty vegetable smoothies!
