All-Time Favorite Smoothies, Nutrient-Boosting Add-Ins, and Blenders

Smoothies for breakfast: highly efficient. They supply you with a wide variety of food groups and nutrients to start your day. They’re easy to make, especially when you have a powerful blender. They travel well. And they are Gemini-like—smoothies can go many ways flavorwise. Pick your ideal combo from our hits.

OUR FAVORITE SMOOTHIES

Matcha Avocado Smoothie

The creamiest nondairy smoothie ever.

GET RECIPE

Fruity Chlorella Smoothie

Chlorella can be a great addition to a smoothie—we like to pair it with fresh ginger to balance out its earthy flavor.

GET RECIPE

Chocolate Cherry Almond Smoothie

Frozen cauliflower adds creaminess when blitzed and is a nice way to get some veggies in first thing.

GET RECIPE

Pina Chlor-ada

Pineapple and mint make this a refreshing smoothie to wake up with.

GET RECIPE

Blueberry Coconut Chia Smoothie

It’s all about that lime and cardamom combo.

GET RECIPE

Triple Berry Ginger Smoothie

Using a whole mandarin gives the right balance of tart and sweet, in addition to some fiber.

GET RECIPE

Holiday Spice Smoothie

Warm spices combined with banana make this a wintry and satisfyingly sweet drink. Add hemp powder and almond milk for a little boost.

GET RECIPE

Hula Hydrator Smoothie

If you’re feeling extra, you can buy fresh coconuts, use their meat in the smoothie and enjoy the juice as is for a treat. It’s also easy to find coconut meat ready to go in the freezer section of many grocery stores.

ADD-INS THAT UP THE ANTE

goop Wellness
Metabolism-Boosting Superpowder
goop, $55/$50 with subscription
SHOP NOW

Eating nutrient-dense foods (like the ones in these smoothie recipes) is a fantastic way to support a healthy metabolism. And when you need a little extra help, this metabolism-boosting superpowder can do the trick. This key ingredient in this powder is the clinically studied 7-Keto® DHEA, which is effective, albeit a little bitter. That’s why we added organic cocoa powder to the formula to give it a rich chocolate vibe.*

goop Wellness
Gut Microbiome Superpowder
goop, $55/$50 with subscription
SHOP NOW

Our purposely flavorless Gut Microbiome Superpowder is the most versatile booster on our list—we’re even happy having it straight in water. It’s formulated with a clinically studied dose of probiotics (which provide everyday gut support and help alleviate occasional digestive upset), prebiotics (fuel for healthy bacteria in the gut), digestive enzymes (to aid in the digestion of macronutrients), L-glutamine, and aloe juice concentrate (traditionally used for its soothing effects). Its chameleon-like versatility comes in handy as this supplement works best when taken routinely. You can add it to any smoothie, so even though you’re keeping it regular, it’s never boring.*

Wylde One
Yoga in a Cup
goop, $35
SHOP NOW

Formulated with adaptogens like reishi and ashwagandha to promote relaxation. If that doesn’t lull you into a state of calm, the warm and soothing spice blend may.*

Cure Hydration
Laser Focus Matcha Energy and Electrolyte Mix
goop, $28
SHOP NOW

An easy way to get a little extra energy and stay hydrated: Add this to a matcha smoothie to double down on that earthy flavor while adding some electrolytes and a good punch of sweetness from the monk fruit (miraculously there is no weird aftertaste, huzzah!).

GOLDE
Original Turmeric Latte Blend
goop, $29
SHOP NOW

We think there’s big potential for a smoothie-latte hybrid here. The turmeric—which is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine to promote overall balance, well-being, and a healthy immune system—and coconut milk powder would be excellent additions to so many smoothies.

Comvita
UMF 10+ Manuka Honey
goop, $57
SHOP NOW

Our favorite honey. Sweet, intensely floral, and herbaceous. It’s a certified by the UMF Honey Association to ensure the presence of natural bioactive compounds. We love it in tea, smoothies, and chia pudding, and we’ve been known to use it as a face mask from time to time.

Wooden Spoons Herbs
Herbal Coffee
goop, $38
SHOP NOW

Adds the rich, earthy, pleasantly bitter qualities of coffee to your morning smoothie without the caffeine (or the post-caffeine crash).

BEST BLITZ IN THE BIZ

Beast Health
Beast Blender + Hydration System
goop, $185
SHOP NOW

It doesn’t get more convenient than this. This powerful blender doubles as a to-go cup. And it’s incredibly easy to clean.

Vitamix
Vitamix Ascent Series 3500
goop, $600

The holy grail of blenders. It’s an investment piece for sure, but its uses are endless and you’ll cherish it for many years.

Hurom
Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer
goop, $459
SHOP NOW

Juicing is different from blending, but adding a little juice to a smoothie can make it really refreshing. Fresh squeezed juice: even better.
