20 Smoothie Recipes to Jump Start Your New Year

smoothie recipesFor the past year my husband has been juicing his breakfasts. He loves the kale, pears and carrots each and every morning. I wanted to join the liquid habit, but I need something a little more creative. I’m an slave to frosty desserts so I needed something that would trick my brain into thinking I was having a treat while still treating my body right. I decided 2014 would be my year to join the Smoothie Nation. Okay…I just made that title up, but it’s really true. Smoothies are definitely a growing, healthy eating trend and I’m ready to sign up.

My mother gave us a Ninja Master Prep System for Christmas and it takes all the extra work out of smoothie making. The system has a lot of power, but I think I’ve finally got the hang of it. It’s time to add ideas to my Smoothie Recipe collection. After browsing around I think I got some great ideas to get me started. Check out these 20 Smoothie Recipes and you might just find your own inspiration.
