10. The Ultimate Banana Smoothie - This recipe calls for 3 ripe bananas, milk, vanilla yogurt, peanut butter, honey, and a bit of ice. Together, these ingredients create, by far, the best banana smoothie that one can make. It is an absolutely perfect treat.

9. Basic Breakfast Smoothie – 2 bananas, yogurt, blueberries, any sort of fruity yogurt, chopped hazelnuts, and honey. Don’t let the name fool you, this is one of the most fantastic smoothie to have ever been created. There is literally no better drink to have for breakfast

8. Pawpaw and Mango Smoothie - Sliced Mango, peeled and sliced papaya, orange juice, sugar, and ice or water as desired. Truly one of the most amazing “tropical” smoothies one can ever partake in. It’s great for any occasion and anytime of the day.

7. Strawberry & Pineapple Smoothie – A classic tropical smoothie. Frozen Strawberries, milk, pineapple juice, vanilla yogurt, sugar, and ice as desired. As far as fruity smoothies go for just any occasion, this is a great smoothie. Easily one of the better ones. It can be eaten at basically any time of the day and makes for an amazing drink.

6. Melon Lime Cooler – Honey dew melon, lime sherbet, lime juice, ice as desired, and strawberries. This is a very simple recipe, however, the taste is unreal. It makes for an amazing desert with a color that is very pleasant. It’s seldom there’s a smoothie that is easy on the eyes as well as the tongue.

5. Iced Mocha Fusion Shake – Milk or creamer, vanilla extract, granulated sugar, a pack of any instant mocha coffee mix, and ice as desired. Fantastic coffee smoothie well worth a try. I understand that some people are not coffee drinkers, but this works well as a desert as well as an all around grand smoothie.

4. Coconut and Lime Smoothie – Plain yogurt, coconut milk, coconut flesh for added texture and stronger taste (optional), the juice of a single lime, honey, and ice as desired. A spin on the classic Piña Colada flavor involving lime. Relatively sweet while still holding the essence of both lime and coconut. Very delicious smoothie.

3. Orange Glorious – Milk, one cup of ice water, frozen orange juice concentrate, ice as desired, vanilla extract, and sugar as desired. This is an excellent source of Vitamin C and also extremely delicious, which makes it a great kid friendly smoothie. One of the better Orange Smoothies out there!

2. Brown Stew – A small handful of cashews, a small scoop of cashew butter, one cup of either water or ice, medjool dates or agave nectar, and plenty of raw, powdered cacao or chocolate. This is easily the best smoothie of all time. Its flavors mesh perfectly while also being a light and naturally nutty delight. What really pulls it all together is the chocolate. Brown Stew takes the crown in terms of flavor and consistency. A little nutella pulls it together nicely!
