2 Healthy, Easy Smoothie Recipes That Taste Like Ice Cream

Share The Love!

Hello Lovelies:

Sometimes less is more, which is why I’m keeping it simple today with these creamy, delicious, easy smoothie recipes!

Smoothies are the best of both worlds, right? On one hand, they’re healthy and full of tons of vitamins, minerals, fiber and amazing phytonutrients. On the other hand, they’re sweet, delicious and can totally sub in for dessert. Basically, the healthy foodie’s dream. At least, if you have a sweet tooth like I do!

If you’re looking for a breakfast (or snack) option that gives you total dessert vibes, look no further:

You’ll love these 2 Healthy, Easy Smoothie Recipes That Taste Like Ice Cream!

2 Healthy, Easy Smoothie Recipes That Taste Like Ice Cream | Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free. Great for breakfast or a healthy dessert. Featuring a peanut butter smoothie and a beet and PB smoothie (you won’t even know you’re eating beets!) Click through for the recipe.

I’m a sucker for a good smoothie! I hope you are too, because I’ve got dozens of healthy, easy smoothie recipes waiting for you on this site. But lately I’ve been craving something a little more on the ice cream side. We’re talking cold soft-serve baby!

I love when a few simple ingredients come together to make for a yummy dessert (or breakfast) that totally hits the spot. And it’s all healthy goodness, so we have nothing to feel guilty about.

You can enjoy these right away in a bowl with a spoon or, if you want to be able to scoop them into a dish or cone, place the mixture in a freezer safe container and freeze for around an hour.

Creamy Peanut Butter Smoothie

In my house, peanut butter may very well be it’s own food group… so a creamy, peanut butter soft-serve is, in my mind, one of the best healthy, easy smoothie recipes I can imagine!

And it makes a magnificent breakfast! You’ve got everything you need – healthy fats, protein, carbs… combine this with your overnight oats or add some fruit to the mix and you’ll be ready to start the day.

If you aren’t a huge fan of peanut butter, don’t worry! Cashew or almond butter should work wonders too.

Check out the delicious recipe!

Blissful Beet Smoothie

Wait! If you read this title and thought “ew beets” I feel you! I definitely don’t eat enough of these bad boys, because they often literally taste like dirt. But that’s such a shame.

Beets have so much goodness to offer your sexy bod! They have a unique blend of antioxidants, supporting vision health and nerve tissues. Their marvelous phytonutrients help to reduce inflammation. Top that off with awesome fiber that supports your digestive tract and cardiovascular system and you have magic my friends! (source)

And, awesome news, the beets don’t make this smoothie bowl taste like dirt!

This bowl of goodness is basically an upgrade of the last recipe. I wanted to find a yummy way to eat more beets and decided to toss one in to my breakfast smoothie bowl. Deliciousness was born my friend! And I am confident you’ll love it (even if you aren’t too fond of beets). Check out the recipe and give it a try!

    YUM! I love smoothies so much. Usually I just do fruit smoothies, but now I feel like i should add some peanut butter into the mix 😁 I’m totally with you on peanut butter being it’s own food group. So yummy. I’m not sure about the beets, but I also never knew how good they are for you. Thanks for sharing this!

      Fruit smoothies are the best! And I find peanut butter often blends in well with most fruit smoothies. I hope you give it a go! It’s such an easy way to get some extra fats and protein into the mix. Plus, yum! So it’s all win really 😉. Glad I’m not the only one with a peanut butter problem haha. I hope you enjoy it in your smoothies.

      I’m so happy to hear that Katie! They’re totally great for work. If you have mason jars you can easily pop them into one, seal it up and take it with you. They’ll keep in the fridge for a while until you have the chance to enjoy them! I hope you adore these recipes as much as I do! 🙂

    Interesting, I’ve never thought about putting beets in a smoothie. It makes a beautiful color thought. I love peanut butter though or almond butter when I’m feeling extra sassy 🙂

      I ADORE that almond butter is your sassy go to 😉. It’s so delicious ♡. I love to make desserts with it (or eat it with fruit). I need to add it to my smoothies more often! Thanks for the suggestion Michaela!

      I hope you get the chance to try out the beet smoothie. I was surprised by the flavour – my hubby thought I was giving him a berry smoothie! We couldn’t taste the beets. I hope you love it too if you try it! And that you get to enjoy lots of sassy almond butter smoothies 💖. Sounds wonderful!

      Thank you so much Megan! I’m so glad you’re excited about them. And I’m happy you like that they’re dairy free. I’ve been lactose intolerant since I was little, and it was so hard to find good dairy free options growing up. So I’ve learned to create my own. It’s pretty easy to be dairy free these days thankfully 😊. I hope you get to try these! ♡

My blender died on me earlier this year and it was a sad few smoothieless days before we could get our hands on a new one! They’re too delicious not to love. Hope you have a happy Sunday (and get to enjoy a smoothie).

But it’s also ok if it isn’t for you. Let me know how you make out! And thank you so much for the compliment. Made my day! Hope yours is lovely too.
