“As a person who is always in a hurry in the morning, I often do not have time to make myself breakfast.
Here comes the banana-peanut butter smoothie, which gives me energy for the whole day.
- 1 banana
- 3 tablespoons of oatmeal
- 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
- 2 small spoons of sugar
- 1 glass of milk
Once you mix everything, if you feel it’s too dense, you can add more milk, and if it’s too thin, you can add more peanut butter or a couple of dates. Drink this in the morning, and you’ll be healthy as a horse.”

“My favorite Vitamix smoothie recipe is a simple yet delicious combination of strawberries, blueberries, banana, and spinach.
This combination makes for a perfect breakfast smoothie that’s incredibly nutritious and flavorful. The strawberries provide a sweet flavor, while the blueberries add a touch of tartness. The banana adds body and helps to thicken the smoothie, while the spinach adds an element of nutrition. Simply combine all of these ingredients and blend until smooth. You can also add a few tablespoons of almond milk to give it an even creamier texture. Enjoy your delicious Vitamix smoothie!”

“My favorite Vitamix smoothie recipe is, hands down, any smoothie that combines fruits and vegetables!
The Vitamix is incredibly powerful and can blend fruits and vegetables seamlessly for a super creamy smoothie! For example, pineapple green smoothies work well in the Vitamix because the pineapple packs a powerful flavor and covers up the greens’ taste well! It’s healthy and delicious!”

“One smoothie I love is for helping me sleep at night and reducing inflammation.
I have it as a dessert; it takes just a couple minutes to make, comes out thick and creamy, and is super medicinal. The cherries reduce inflammation and provide a hefty dose of naturally-occurring melatonin for relaxation and sleep.
Dark Cherry Sleepytime Anti-inflammatory Dessert Smoothie
- 1 cup dark sweet cherries, frozen
- 1 Medjool date
- 1 TB plain flavor vegan coffee creamer (Vanilla is fine, too. I highly recommend Silk’s Sweet & Creamy non-dairy creamer.)
- 1 TB flaxseed oil with lignans
- 4 oz soft tofu (I like to freeze my soft tofu in ice trays and pop out a few cubes every night for my smoothie — this makes more of an ice cream/thick shake consistency.)
Blend until smooth and enjoy! I love using double-walled stainless steel containers to keep my smoothie freezing cold for the full hour I’m indulging in it in front of the TV. It’s thick enough to eat like soft serve with a spoon. For a thinner consistency, add a splash of plant-based milk. Almond and oat milk work well. For extra sleepiness, replace the Medjool date with 1 TB of Montmorency cherry syrup or juice. For crunch, I enjoy shredding a bit of dark chocolate over it, or, if super healthy, sprinkle cacao nibs on top.”

“Recently, my kids love having a smoothie after supper (let’s be honest, I love it too).
Here’s our fave recipe recently:
- 1 frozen banana
- Handful of frozen mangos
- Handful of frozen strawberries
- Splash of apple juice
- Heaping spoon of plain greek yogurt (for extra protein)
- Strawberry flavored yogurt drink (we use Iogo Nano, but it could be any) — fill until it almost covers the frozen fruit.”

“My favorite Vitamix smoothie recipe is the Green Detox Smoothie.
It has all the ingredients for a healthy and nutritious energy boost, including kale, banana, avocado, fresh ginger root, and chia seeds. The combination of these ingredients provides essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber to keep you full throughout the day. It is also packed with antioxidants that help reduce inflammation in your body.
I love this smoothie because it’s easy to make (just throw everything in the blender) and tastes fantastic! All of these benefits make this recipe my favorite Vitamix smoothie!”

“Vitamix is a worthy splurge if you love shakes and smoothies.
I like to kickstart my day with a coffee breakfast smoothie. It is the perfect high-protein breakfast, especially for days when you are in a hurry. All you will need is coffee, bananas, oats, and milk.
You can brew the coffee with your preferred method or use instant powder. Oats and frozen bananas give the smoothie a thick consistency. You can also add sugar or any other sweetener. You can make other customizations, like Greek yogurt, cocoa powder, peanut butter, and more depending on your preferences.”

“My favorite smoothie is the Spicy Orange Creamsicle smoothie.
This smoothie is reminiscent of that creamy popsicle made with orange-flavored sherbet and vanilla ice cream — but without the high fructose corn syrup, other additives, and the crash and burn afterward. High in beta carotene and vitamins C and E, this smoothie is arguably a superfood. The ginger is good for digestion and gives it a spicy kick! Since this smoothie uses the orange, carrot, ginger root (not their extracted juices) and a date, it’s also high in fiber, which supports a healthy gut.”

“A Vitamix blender is one of the best things you can invest in at home.
It is the best of its kind available on the market. And I feel blessed ever since I got one for myself. I mainly use it to make my favorite smoothie. It only has two ingredients: banana and orange. Oranges give it a sunny color while also providing much-needed vitamins. On the other hand, bananas add potassium and other nutrients while adding a creamy texture. You can also add some other ingredients, such as turmeric, dates, or cashews. All of these have different benefits for your body.”

“My favorite Vitamix smoothie recipe is one that’s vegan and has mint chips. This is a delicious smoothie that’s simple to make at home.
What brings out the flavor of this smoothie are bananas and coconut. They are combined to create a tasty, creamy base. It adds richness to the smoothie, which helps elevate your experience. You can even add peppermint essential oil to help add a refreshing taste to your smoothie. Add spirulina powder to your diet for a plethora of nutritional benefits and to help you stay healthy.”

“The all-berry Vitamix smoothie is an ideal choice when you have less time but need to have a power-packed breakfast.
The all-berry smoothie is a perfect drink post-workout as well. All you need to do is freeze some strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries.
Once frozen, take them out and put them in the Vitamix blender. Add a glass of milk with two tablespoons of full-fat yogurt. Blend for five to ten seconds with three intervals. And your delicious smoothie will be ready. You can even add a dash of cinnamon to get in some extra antioxidants to kickstart your day!”

“Vegan mint chip smoothies are my favorites. It is very delicious and easy to make.
Banana and coconut blend with vanilla extract to make a smooth base. The aura of freshness is enhanced by adding mint and peppermint. This addition brings you a refreshing and healthy drink. Spirulina powder aids in the health benefits of this smoothie. Chocolate nibs are an optional addition you can include as per your preference.”

“One of my absolute favorite Vitamix smoothie recipes is this superfood peanut butter and banana smoothie.
I love the balance of natural sweet and savory flavors this smoothie offers — it’s easy for smoothies to be too sweet, and the banana in this one offers just the right amount of sweetness. It also contains protein, fiber, and other essential nutrients.”

“This Strawberry Almond Milk Green Tea Smoothie Recipe recipe is my go-to pick-me-up smoothie. It’s packed with the fruity sweetness of strawberry, green tea’s caffeine energizer, and protein-rich almond. Most of us have taken strawberry smoothies. However, this recipe stands out because of the green tea and almond combination that adds the bitter and sweet taste of green tea and the nutty flavor and creamy texture of almond milk.
Here’s the breakdown of the recipe:
- 1 cup of chilled green tea
- 1 cup strawberries
- ⅓ cup of almond milk
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- ½ cup of ice
- Banana (optional)
You can add a frozen banana for that classic strawberry-banana combination. This smoothie recipe will make you feel full, refreshed, and energized.”

“I’d like to share one of my favorite Vitamix recipes, which is great for recovering after a gym workout:
- 2 scoops of protein powder
- 1 cup of soy milk (regular milk is also good)
- 1 cup of oats
- ½ cup of banana or berries (or any frozen fruit you like)
- 2 tbsp of peanut butter
- 1 tsp of honey
- ½ cup of Greek yogurt
This smoothie is approximately 1,000 calories and is good if you’re not trying to bulk up.
I like to load up with protein, like peanut butter, after a workout because it’s necessary for the muscles to repair and rebuild. Banana helps reduce inflammation and boost glycogen production. Meanwhile, oats contain complex carbohydrates, which are good for refilling depleted muscles and aiding in muscle growth.”

“My favorite Vitamix smoothie recipe is also a budget-friendly one, as it uses oats and water rather than pricey oat milk and still yields a creamy result (and the Vitamix does all the hard work!). I really love a good, cold smoothie, so I freeze my fruit in batches to get my morning beverage extra-cold — just be sure to peel those bananas first! And another money-saving tip: by weight, frozen spinach is generally cheaper than fresh, so I use that here for a blast of nutrients first thing in the morning. Ready? Let’s get blending:
(Yield: one nice, big smoothie – or two smaller ones!)
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1/8 cup oats
- 1 date, pitted
- 1 cup frozen fruit of your choice
- 1 banana, frozen
- 2 cups water
Add ingredients to the Vitamix in the order listed. Set the blender to the Smoothie setting, or blend on high until desired consistency. Pour in your favorite large glass and enjoy!
Mangoes, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple — the sky’s the limit!”

“I’ve experimented with various smoothie recipes in my dependable Vitamix blender. The traditional green smoothie is my all-time favorite Vitamix smoothie recipe. It is easy to prepare and full of necessary nutrients.
One banana, a cup of frozen mixed berries, a handful of spinach or kale, a scoop of protein powder, and a cup of unsweetened almond milk should all be blended together. In addition to being tasty, this smoothie is a fantastic way to start the day off with a boost of energy and nutrition.”
