Gluten Free Smoothies: easy MUST-TRY recipes! (no bananas)

Is there a better start to your day than healthy gluten-free smoothies? In my house, we rotate through a few gluten-free breakfast ideas, but we particularly enjoy a hearty breakfast smoothie. They are perfect for breakfast on-the-go. We also think smoothies are the best way to add vegetables to your morning.

Hydrating Peach Mango Green Smoothie

As our everyday go-to, this gluten-free smoothie knocks it out of the park! It reminds us of a healthier and more delicious version of one from Jamba Juice. It makes a large smoothie loaded with electrolytes from the coconut water, calcium from the almond milk, and is perfect hydration for anyone who loves caffeine (one of the reasons it’s our favorite 😉 ). 

Peach Mango Smoothie

We prefer the Peach Mango version, but strawberries are delicious too (in place of peaches).

Peach and mango are refreshing first thing in the morning, and you can’t beat a breakfast serving of leafy greens.

I didn’t enjoy smoothies until I added ground flaxseed and nut butter. Beforehand, I felt unsatisfied and hungry an hour later. This one is sure to last you through the morning!

(serves 2)

⅔ cup frozen peaches (100g)

1 cup frozen diced mango (150g)

2-3 cups fresh, raw spinach (60-80g)

1 ½ cups almond or other plant-based milk (350 ml)

1 cup coconut water (250 ml)

2 Tbsp ground flaxseed (15g)

¼ cup (4 Tbsp) almond butter

Optional: a sprinkle of turmeric and cinnamon

Health benefits:

  • Hydration – high water content, electrolytes from the coconut water
  • Calcium – calcium-fortified almond milk (we use Silk brand)
  • Iron – spinach
  • Protein – almond butter, ground flaxseed
  • Omega 3’s – ground flaxseed
  • Anti-inflammatory – turmeric, cinnamon

Indulgent Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie

This indulgent gluten-free smoothie has the consistency of chocolate pudding! It is smooth and creamy. We love how the raspberry and chocolate flavors dominate while we sneak in other healthy ingredients.

We make this smoothie on Mondays and as a healthier version of a chocolate milkshake. It gives us something to look forward to at the start of the week and hits the spot every time as a healthy dessert!

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

2 Tbsp almond butter
