9 Creative Ways to Boost Your Smoothie Game

The number of smoothie recipes you can find is seemingly endless, and we’re not complaining. A cool, creamy drink is the perfect way to get a ton of nutrition in one meal or snack — as long as you watch the sweeteners and don’t add too much nut butter (hello, potential calorie bombs).

Yet, time after time, most of us tend to make the same smoothie. But if you’re willing to bust out of that rut, you’ll discover new flavors and textures while slurping up different nutrients at the same time. Everything from cauliflower and beets to jalapeños and carrot tops goes. If you don’t believe us, try the ingredients and recipes from two smoothie pros below. One sip may convert you to a wider range of smoothie possibilities.
