Holiday Smoothie Recipes

Holiday Smoothie Recipes

I love the holidays so much. When I was a little girl one of my favorite books was called “The Sweet Smells of Christmas”. All the sweet smells such as mint, pumpkin, caramel and chocolate are so delicious and yummy, but they are not so great for the waist line. Which is why I love these holiday smoothie recipes. They keep me feeling great and they curb my crazy sweet tooth!

If you love sweets, you will LOVE these super clean smoothie ideas too!

The Grinch Smoothie

This Grinch gets its green color from a scoop of matcha, a green tea powder that’s green like the Dr. Seuss character himself and that’s been enjoyed for centuries. Since my daughter LOVES The Grinch, I knew I had to try this recipe with her and it did not disappoint.

Thanks to creamy Vanilla Shakeology, banana, and coconut water, this will turn any Grinch sweet. 

Holiday spices cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove provide even more Christmas cheer!
