Where are my smoothie lovers at? I’ll admit that I have not ALWAYS been a fan of smoothies, but it was because the recipes I was trying were BORING! Plus, during the Holidays, you will bbasically have sugar-packed foods and desserts in your vicinity at all times, so having a healthy and TASTY smoothie recipe up your sleeve will help you combat the temptation! I’ve pulled together a list of some quick & easy holiday smoothie recipes for your reading/eating pleasure. 🙂
1. “Egg Nog” Smoothie
Ahhh, the tradition of drinking egg nog during the Holidays can now live on in your healthier lifestyle. This egg nog smoothie recipe comes from Kris Carr’s cookbook Crazy Sexy Kitchen, and gets its sweetness from dates, instead of sugar.

2. “Carrot Cake” Smoothie
Carrot Cake may or may not be a staple at your family’s Holiday table, but it can usually be found at mine. My husband is fairly picky with food, but he does like carrot cake from time to time. This recipe comes from Jenny Sugar at POPSUGAR Fitness, and is delicious (Vegan, too)!

3. Gingerbread Spice Smoothie
Gingerbread makes me think of those yummy, decorated houses that I always just want to EAT! But this gingerbread spice just so happens to be healthy. 🙂 This recipe was found on Green Kitchen Stories. Enjoy!

4. Paleo Superfood Smoothie
Because sometimes, after all of that holiday eating, you need a dose of superfoods! If you’ve been reading my blog for long, you know that my super easy and favorite way to get a dense dose of superfood nutrition is from Shakeology, but this is another option for those of you not interested in jumping on the easy train with me. 🙂 This recipe is courtesy of The MerryMaker Sisters. I hope you enjoy!
