Summer is most definitely smoothie time, amiright? When the hot afternoons come around, or after a sweaty morning workout, the only thing I want is a refreshing smoothie to enjoy. Between the frozen fruit, protein powder, and other oh so delicious ingredients, smoothies just can’t be beat. I especially love that there are so many different flavors and variations out there, from chocolate and peanut butter to fruity and fresh!
So when thinking of a post for this week, I knew smoothie’s it’d be. You’re welcome. ;)
I’ve decided to round up some of my favorite smoothies from around the interwebs, with some of my own creations thrown in there. I hope you enjoy and sip on a tasty smoothie for me this week! And if you have a favorite that’s not listed here, link it in the comments. I LOVE trying out new recipes, especially when they’re recommended to me by my sweet readers.

Y’all I love that this is Thai inspired, and doesn’t it look absolutely delicious? It’s so tropical, and I am pumped to give it a try soon. The coconut water is screaming my name- it’s SO good for you when you are dehydrated and needing some extra electrolytes.
You had me at Nutella. YUM! Sounds like a smoothie my hubby would be ALL over.
So this fun smoothie is a part of a recipe series featuring Lion Guard, and let me tell you- she nailed it. Not only is the smoothie a work of art (for realz), but it sounds SO good! Citrus, banana, mango and berries? Yes please!
As you know, I am a HUGE fan of smoothie bowls, so naturally this post wouldn’t be complete with at least one (or you know, multiple…) tasty smoothie bowl recipes! And this one sounds mouth-watering. I love pairing raspberry and chocolate, and you better believe I’d eat this bad boy up in a heartbeat.
This recipe is from one of my sweet *real life* friends. I love that it is lower in sugar, and looks oh so creamy and delicious. Also, she showed how you can make it into a smoothie bowl as well! I’m telling you, Jessica is the queen of smoothie bowls.
(Can you tell I’m all about that PB when it comes to smoothies?!) This smoothie transforms one of my go-to comfort foods into a healthy and delicious smoothie! I love that she added some superfoods to her recipe, and who would have guessed you’d be sipping on greens while enjoying this breakfast treat?!
I’m such a sucker for green drinks! I love them because I know I’m filling my body with tons of vitamins and minerals as I enjoy my breakfast or afternoon snack. This smoothie is no exception- it’s full of kale, berries and pomegranates! Natural antioxidants here I come.
This awesome smoothie prep post is written by another real life friend! Her recipes are always SO yummy, and I love this post because she shares some tasty recipes for make ahead smoothie packs. Not only is it a time saver, but it leaves you with NO excuse to get your smoothie in. ;)

Yes, I know this isn’t a smoothie, but it’s too pretty and good for you to not share! Sarah is one of my sweet blogger friends, and I love how all of her recipes and DIYs (like this juice) focus on your health and well-being. She just blends up her ingredients and voila! Easy peasy juice.
Isn’t this smoothie gorgeous?! I love how bright the layers are, and this just screams “summer” to me! The coolest part is that it uses cubed dragon fruit (I didn’t know that existed!), which gives the top layer its color. Throw in some papaya, blueberries and banana, and you’ve got yourself a killer smoothie.
This would be the perfect breakfast smoothie, since it has oats and almonds to keep you full, and lots and lots of strawberries. I love that she added in some vanilla (I can only imagine how yummy that is!). It’s so simple, but looks ah-ma-zing.
I never thought of adding grape juice to a smoothie before, but it sounds delicious! That, paired with frozen berries, sounds like a smoothie I can get behind.
