6 Smoothies We’re Craving This Spring

Smoothies
After a snowy start to April in some regions of the country, ahem, ours, it appears that spring-like temperatures have finally arrived. Better late than never. This recent weather warm up has our cravings shifting and our counter top kitchen appliances trading spaces. See ya come football season, crockpot. Our blender is now front and center.

Nothing beats a quick and simple breakfast as we’re rushing out the door and smoothies have our heart come spring and summer.

Here are 6 frozen concoctions we’re currently whipping up:

Chocolate Overnight Oatmeal Smoothie

This one’s reserved for those days, okay weeks, where we’re feeling all sorts of “I need chocolate. And I need it now.” Rather than crack open a container of  Ben & Jerry’s at 7 a.m. we fuel up on this smoothie and it hits the spot, leaving us satisfied til our mid-morning snack.

Healthy Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie 

So fresh and so clean, clean. We’re gearing up for strawberry season with this sweet (and healthy!) treat courtesy of Veggie Inspired Journey.

Cinnamon Roll Smoothie 

Because let’s be real, when does a cinnamon roll not sound good? We love everything about this smoothie, especially, the fact that we almost always have all its ingredients on hand. Recipe and photo via Family Fresh Meals.

Raspberry Coconut Smoothie

Vegan? We’ve got you covered! Or should we say, Texanerin has you covered with this delicious raspberry-coconut combination. Side note and bonus points, the rest of her site’s recipes look equally amazing.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Favorite sandwich in smoothie form? Sign us up. This recipe a la Gimme Some Oven is basic in the best way possible. Tbh, we’re pretty much down anytime PB is involved.

Sunrise Detox Smoothie

This one is almost to pretty to drink. And while we’d prefer to be sitting on the beach watching the sun rise and sipping this deliciousness via Amy in the Kitchen, the smoothie alone boasts a tropical feel.

Tell us – What’s your favorite smoothie come spring and summer?
