5. Nutella Buckwheat Smoothie With Warm Blackberry Sauce
Buckwheat is a great source of complete plant-based protein with one cup uncooked containing 19 grams! So including buckwheat into your meals is a great idea, especially if you’re vegetarian or vegan and trying to bump up your protein intake. Buckwheat is also high in fiber and essential minerals such as manganese, magnesium, zinc, copper, and phosphorus. Plus it adds an irresistibly smooth and creamy texture to smoothies when soaked and blended. Serve this Nutella Buckwheat Smoothie With Warm Blackberry Sauce by Mitra Shirmohammadi for a luscious breakfast to keep you cozy on a gloomy day. It’s absolutely delicious!

This flavor combination will make it feel like summer any time of the year. Typically a piña colada comes in pre-mixed and full of dairy and refined sugar, but this piña colada smoothie is made with simple and healthy ingredients! Pineapple, banana, protein powder, ice, and coconut chia pudding. That’s all you need! Make a big batch of chia pudding at the beginning of the week and keep it in your fridge for an easy breakfast, snack, or recipes like this one. Add a slice of pineapple to the glass and start your day right with a delicious and nutritious Pina Colada Protein Smoothie by Kennedy Kitchings.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are the perfect treat and a fan favorite all around. However, they are not the healthiest snack as they are often made with white bread and processed peanut butter. This Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie by Jesse Lane Lee, however, keeps all that flavor from your favorite snack but is super easy to make and much healthier than its sandwich counterpart.

There is more to this wonderful smoothie than meets the eye. In fact, there’s more than one vegetable in this smoothie – there’s actually two! And it is also fruitless, which means there is no banana.
