3 Healthy Fruit Smoothie Recipes

I’M ALIVE. I have survived the stomach flu of death. It has been going around my family and since I’m on medication that shuts down my immune system because, you know, the whole autoimmune disease thing, I got it and I got it bad. And then I had withdrawal from some of my medications because I couldn’t take them. So THAT was a horrendous 48 hours.

But anyway. I’m back! And with some of my favorite smoothie recipes. I started making smoothies regularly in August when I pulled a Walden, but then the blender we had – which wasn’t made for frozen things – stopped really working for me. And then the glorious event happened: I received a Nutribullet for Christmas. So these are some of the awesome smoothies I have made recently!

What you will never see in my smoothies: bananas or yogurt. I can’t stand either of them!

    I love that you gave a few non-yogurt smoothie options. I like it, but it's usually so sugary that I try not to have it all the time. I'll have to try a few of these out! Glad you're feeling better!

    Thank you so much for sharing nonbanana smoothie recipes! I am allergic (last time I had a banana before I started taking antihistamines daily I broke out in hives)! I see so many smoothie recipes and healthy eating hacks with bananas in them I wasn't sure if it was possible to make a good smoothie without them.

    So sorry about your terrible flu – it went around my family around the holidays and needless to say, it wasn't the best Christmas I've ever had. 🙂 These smoothies all sound great! I have a green smoothie every morning but have been looking for ways to change it up – and the peanut butter and apple combo sounds downright delicious!
