Smoothies are great for mornings, a post-workout pick-me-up or even a meal on the go! But no matter what purpose your smoothie is serving, the metallic grinding of blades against frozen fruit is sure to wake up anyone within 50 feet of your blender. Here are recipes for the tastiest smoothies that will loudly remind all your roommates that you are living a healthy life!
Ginger Berry Oatmeal Smoothie
This smoothie is the perfect start to your morning if you have a long day ahead of you. Full of vitamins and hearty oatmeal, this smoothie will surely get your blender’s motor whirring extra loud as the blades try hard to liquefy the oats and berries to smoothie perfection. Just throw in 1/4c of rolled oats, a handful of blueberries, 1/2c of yogurt, and shit-ton of ice so that Janet and Lindsey are fully awake at 6:45am.
This smoothie is great any time of day—especially when Lindsey is having a post-work nap. Sorry, girl! Just add your favorite base liquid (such coconut water or almond milk) with a couple leafy greens along with some sweet fruits for this green dream to stun Lindsey out of her slumber and start checking Craigslist for new apartments.
Whether you’re looking to cure a hangover, get over the flu, or just flush out some toxins, this smoothie is the perfect treat to get your body back in order. With ingredients like avocado, lemon, and ginger, this blended cure-all will get the alcohol out of your system and Janet out of her bed and asking, “Can you please stop? We’ve talked about this already.”
PB and Banana
This is a simple smoothie perfect for loading up protein after an intense cross-fit session! You got up early to get those reps in now get Janet and Lindsey up too! Who cares that they work restaurant jobs and got home four hours ago? Let your blender be their morning bugle call as your blender’s blades grind against a frozen banana. Add some yogurt, peanut butter, and almond milk for an earsplitting meal that will make everyone in the apartment finally turn against you!
Be your own smoothie boss and experiment with what you like most. Just be sure to get them really mixed together so that your blender clanks extra hard to get your roommates eyes wide open and filled with scorn!
