Rainbow connection: Colorful smoothies for good health

What’s at the other end of this smoothie rainbow? A pot of good health.

Rotate through these colorful smoothies for a healthy variety of nutrients that will make you feel really good about what you’re putting in your body.

Gorgeous Green

If it looks green … and is packed with greens … does that mean it tastes like … greens? Don’t worry!  This smoothie might be green, but it tastes like creamy peanut butter and banana. Take the leap. It’s delicious.

Pretty Purple

A variety of berries, combined with yogurt and coconut water, gives this smoothie its lovely purple color.

Radiant Red

Beets, carrots, ginger, strawberries and apples pack this smoothie with a nutritious punch and a side of spice. Chia seeds give some texture and protein.

Optimistic Orange

With a nice boost of Vitamin C and fiber, this orange smoothie might bring you back to your childhood memories of creamsicles.

Beautiful Brown

Chocolate for breakfast? Absolutely. Or lunch. Or an afternoon pick-me-up. Cocoa powder mixed with the natural sweetness of frozen bananas and berries (add a dash of agave if needed), almond milk and almond butter make a creamy and hearty sweet treat. Throwing in a handful of spinach is optional, but you won’t know it’s there. Promise!

Balancing Blue

This smoothie recipe is a refreshing alternative to milk-based smoothies. Ingredients included frozen berries, pomegranate blueberry juice, and raw nuts and cashews for a healthy protein and fat source.

Powerful Pink

This pink, nutrient dense drink incorporates strawberries, heart healthy avocado and antioxidant rich beets, along with fibrous celery to create a well-rounded and tasty smoothie.

Wondrous White

Apple, banana and peanut butter bring back nostalgia for those peanut butter and jelly childhood days. This is a simple recipe with ingredients you can easily have on hand.

Yummy Yellow

This is called the sunshine smoothie for good reason. Banana, pineapple and mango will transport you to a tropical locale through your taste buds. It’s a refreshing pick-me-up for before or after a long shift.
