I have to admit, and this is my full disclosure before I even start – I don’t drink a lot of smoothies. I don’t believe my mother does at all. Maybe I am becoming more of my mother, and am too old now. I like an occasional smoothie, no doubt about it, but smoothies are not my go-to breakfasts, and maybe it is a bad thing, now that I think of it, I don’t know.

The thing about smoothies and me that is always at odds is that I have no clue how to make them right off the bat. I don’t know how to construct a smoothie out of my head, and am usually too lazy to look for recipes.

I grew up in the juicing age. While I haven’t been brought up on juice extractor infomercials, because we didn’t have any infomercials where I grew up, from the times when I actually remember myself, and when my brother was little, juices were common, and were popular in healthy living books, however, my grandmother disapproved of them largely, and I was actually brought up on tea that I consumed from my very young age.

So, the first time I tried smoothies was a great eye-opener – I couldn’t believe the flavors, and the easy to drink texture. Now my kids ask for smoothies, and we sometimes get them smoothies on the go, but we rarely make them at home.

Today I decided to make a list of smoothies that I have found to be quite appetizing to look at, simple to make, and that contain good ingredients to help use up those leftover berries, tropical fruits and protein powder that you have available.

If you scroll to the bottom of the list, you will find the most delectable recipes that are suitable for dessert, as well as a giveaway for a few products – check these out!

So, how do you like all of the recipes? I think these are amazing! Notice one of the recipes actually contains an infographic that can help understand the formula behind the smoothies!

If you like this post, please, comment below – we love to hear from our readers! Here are some questions that we would love you to answer – Do you like smoothies? What is your most favorite smoothie recipe – either in general or from this post? Do you have any tips for rookie smoothie makers? 

Finally, for the giveaway!

I would like to give you an opportunity to win a great prize in this giveaway – a Collagen Replenish powder that you can add to one of the smoothies from this post, or any other smoothie recipe that you like! As far as I know, this powder does not have any flavor, and will not change the texture of the smoothie at all, but will help you replenish your collagen. I have tried a drink with this product at a ShiftCon conference in New Orleans a few weeks ago, and it was such a treat to be able to not simply get the basic nutrition from your drink, or simply quench your thirst, but to also be able to receive potentially helpful collagen to boost your collagen levels. I am not FDA or a licensed physician, and I have not performed any independent placebo-controlled study of this product, and this is just my opinion, but I can’t see any harm in boosting your levels of collagen in such a simple way as adding some collagen boosting powder to your daily smoothie.

Collagen giveaway

One winner will receive a package of Collagen Replenish powder and a small canvas bag by Reserveage. This giveaway is US only. The value is $25. The winner will be picked by the giveaway widget at the end of the giveaway, and will be contacted by Box Roundup requesting to provide a US mailing address and a phone number to receive the prize. Once the prize is mailed out there will be no returns, substitutions or refunds.

Good luck entering the giveaway!
