It's official - we are in love with chocolatey-hazelnutty Nutella. So adding it to a dessert worthy smoothie was a no-brainer. Finish with chopped almonds and this recipe will be prettier than an ice cream sundae. Recipe: Banana and Nutella Smoothie with Chopped Almonds
Leafy kale may sound like a smoothie no-no, but this apple and ginger flavored treat will make you sip twice. Recipe: Apple-Kale Smoothie
Here's a morning smoothie packed with calcium, protein and healthy fats to start your day off right. Kids will love the combo of peanut butter and banana. Recipe: Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
Berries are better when blended — and the best when pulsed with Vitamin C rich orange juice. Requiring just five ingredients and a few minutes of prep, snack time doesn't get much better than this. Recipe: C-splosion Smoothie
Plums please! This unusual smoothie comes to life with the help of canned plums, fresh strawberries, and ground spices. Low-fat yogurt makes the mix creamy and a perfect sip for a Sunday brunch. Recipe: Plum Pudding Smoothies
Celebrate the beauty and versatility of almond milk in these tasty blackberry beverages. And since almond milk doesn't curdle, you can prepare the drink a night before then simply shake and enjoy in the morning. Recipe: Blackberry Smoothies
Grapes are typically left off the smoothie list - but we think these little fruits high in vitamin C and potassium deserve a good mix. Here we've combined them with tangy yogurt, milk and sweet honey. Recipe: Grape Smoothie
Kids will go crazy for our soda-fountain inspired creamsicle smoothie. This version cuts out ice cream and uses yogurt and frozen orange juice concentrate instead to bring chilly flavor. Recipe: Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
This thick, creamy and supreme chocolate concoction may be low in fat, but it sure doesn't taste it. Agave nectar, low-fat tofu and fat-free milk add oomph and body. Recipe: Banana Fudge Smoothie
Tangerine juice is a nice change-up from the typical smoothie-staple fruit juices. This eclectic blend also features high-fiber flax seeds, banana, yogurt, and pineapple. Recipe: Tangerine, Pineapple and Blueberry Smoothie
