Does your smoothie game need to go up a level? We’ve got you. Whipping together the perfectly combined smoothie recipe is an art and it takes time to get right. An ‘easy’ smoothie is usually easy to remember (and therefore easy to replicate), not too ingredient-heavy, and contains easy-to-source ingredients. Where possible, it is always a good idea to source local, seasonal foods. Many of the ingredients listed will be easy to find in your local farmers’ market, seasonally.
Easy doesn’t mean lazy though. As far as these recipes go, we’ve kept them minimal but full of creativity. The bases are interchangeable, whether you’re into milk (plant-based if that’s your thing) or yogurt. The main thing is that you’ll be eager to experiment and create smoothies that leave you wanting more. Ready to try 3 of the easiest smoothie recipes that you can always count on?

Immune system boosting
A smoothie for the health conscious (or the sick who just want to have a good time). There is such a thing as a healthy smoothie and this immune-boosting smoothie proves it. The combination of mucus-expelling pineapple and infection-fighting ginger will do great things for your immune system. The best thing is that the combination of coconut, banana, and pineapple makes for a gorgeous tropical taste. An immunity-friendly, smoothie-fied piña colada. Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory herb to add in small doses to not overpower the delicious concoction.
