Spring Smoothie Recipes

Kate Brown

Summer is just around the corner and with all of the fresh fruit that will be harvested, smoothies are a great way to use them. For these recipes, fresh fruit was not used, just fruit purchased from the store, but it is highly recommend to buy local when possible. Also, frozen fruit will make your smoothies thicker, so if you like that, use frozen fruit, if you don’t, use fresh.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate


  1. 2 cups of banana

  2. ½ cup of original almond milk

  3. ½ cup of peanut butter

  4. ¼ cup of chocolate chips

  5. 1 cup of vanilla yogurt


  • This smoothie is much better when you use a fully frozen banana.

  • You can sub the chocolate chips for chocolate syrup or cacao nibs if you want.

  • Adding coffee beans or chocolate covered ones will give you a little boost of caffeine!

  • This smoothie is great after a workout.

Green Machine Smoothie


  1. 1 ½ cups of mango

  2. 1 cup of vanilla yogurt

  3. 1 cup of spinach

  4. 1 cup of water


  • You can sub the spinach out for kale, or add in kale as well!

  • If you add apple juice instead of water, it will taste like the “Goin’ Green” smoothie they sell at Dixon Cafe.

  • This is a great breakfast time smoothie.

 Berry Bonanza Smoothie


  1. 1 ½ cups of mixed berries

  2. 1 cup of strawberry yogurt

  3. 1 tablespoon of flaxseed

  4. 1 cup of water


  • The flaxseed is optional and can be replaced by chia seeds.

  • This smoothie is very refreshing and the more variety of berries, the better.

  • Add frozen banana for a thicker consistency.
