    This collection of healthy smoothie recipes includes my top-rated and most-requested healthy fruit and vegetable smoothies. All of these smoothies are loaded with good-for-you vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and protein.

    This strawberry smoothie recipe is a classic -- and for good reason: it tastes great! Be sure to use an all-natural, fruit-juice sweetened cranberry raspberry juice for this recipe. Otherwise, you may get a lot of additives and fake ingredients you don't want in your smoothies.

    When strawberries are in season, a fresh strawberry makes the perfect garnish for this kid-pleasing fruit smoothie recipe. A sprig of mint would make a nice garnish for this recipe, too.

    It's hard to imagine a healthier snack or breakfast than these blueberry fruit smoothies. With just four ingredients, these blueberry smoothies take less than ten minutes to prepare. The kids can even make this recipe all by themselves.

    I recommend using organic frozen blueberries. If you want to use fresh blueberries, just add some ice and reduce the amount of pineapple juice by 1/4 cup.

    This is a healthy smoothie recipe that is made for chocolate-lovers. While these chocolate banana smoothies taste like chocolate banana milkshakes or frozen drinks you'd get at a coffee store, they are far healthier.

    These chocolate smoothies are made with bananas, vanilla soy milk, vanilla yogurt and chocolate hazelnut spread (Nutella). For a twist, try this recipe with homemade chocolate walnut butter instead of chocolate hazelnut spread. You'll get a boost of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids in each serving.

    This healthy green smoothie recipe gets its vibrant color from uber-healthy fresh kale. Kale is loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein, but it can be slightly bitter. This green smoothie recipe solves that problem by pairing the kale with sweet pineapple chunks, vanilla yogurt and pineapple coconut juice. Once the kids try these healthy green smoothies, they will beg you to make it again and again.

    This lemon blueberry smoothie recipe consistently ranks as a favorite among kids and adults alike.

And the frozen lemonade concentrate really brings out the lemon flavor in this fruit smoothie recipe.

    If you want to make these lemon blueberry smoothies even more lemony, add the zest of one lemon to this smoothie recipe.

    You can serve these blueberry fruit smoothies for breakfast, a snack or even a light dessert on hot summer days.
