DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs are an easy way to add a boost of nutrition to your morning smoothie! 

DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs

I love it when nutrition can be simplified. That’s actually what I set out to do here, hopefully you can tell from my recipes!

You know that I don’t think nutrition has to be perfect (in fact, I DON’T think it should be!) and you also know that I honestly know that nutrition has to be easy or it won’t happen. That’s the truth! I’m realistic.

Spending hours every week prepping salads for weekday lunches is great (and I totally used to do it!) but it may not fit with your current stage of life. And that’s totally ok. It doesn’t mean that nutrition isn’t a priority, but that time is precious and you need to figure out where that precious time is best spent. Some call it your zone of genius, I call it reality!

So DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs can be an answer to your ‘easy and healthy’ breakfast quest. Let me explain. Healthy Smoothie bombs are essentially a boost of nutrition that you can make-ahead and easily add to any smoothie.

And because my current zone of genius is not really supporting salads every day at lunch, I need to get my veggies in other simple and easy ways. Like these DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs.

DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs

The premise behind these DIY healthy smoothie bombs is simple: blend together a powerful combo of vegetables + SUPER super food + a liquid.

Store them in the freezer, and when it’s smoothie time? Simply add a healthy smoothie bomb (OR TWO!) to your smoothie mix of fruit, protein, fat, and liquid. It will add a nutritious mix of vegetables and super foods in the easiest form possible.

So. What do we put into healthy smoothie bombs? I’m so glad you asked!

How to make DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs:

DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs

I like to keep my DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs super simple. (See above!)

  • Vegetable: spinach, kale, lettuce greens, frozen cauliflower, zucchini, cucumber
  • Superfood: chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax meal, nuts, nut butter, coconut oil, protein powder, collagen
  • Liquid: milk, water, coconut water, juice

Blend together, freeze, and then toss in smoothies to add a great source of vegetables and superfoods.

Also, it’s a great way to use up some produce that is going bad. Just blend it up and freeze so it doesn’t go to waste.

DIY Healthy Smoothie Bombs Pro Tip:

Let them thaw for a few minutes before you try to blend or they will be too hard.

    I too love adding spinach or kale to smoothies. I feel like I’m getting so much nutrition packed into each drink! I’m also a fan of adding nut butters and seeds. But I haven’t tried cauliflower or zucchini! Sounds interesting…I’ll give those a try. But the act of freezing the veggie part, particularly if they are starting to go bad, is a great idea. Can’t wait to try!

      Thanks Brian, it is a GREAT way to make sure produce doesn’t go bad! I agree, green smoothies are the BEST!

    I love the idea of smoothies, but have trouble finding ones my kids and i actually like to drink…the only smoothie I can truly say I enjoy drinking every time is the Jazzman’s Strawberry ice cream smoothie! I”m sure there is a recipe on this site for “delicious smoothies” but can anyone recommend one for picky kids and their I have a sweet tooth but am trying to be healthy mom?

    • Emily

      Well the strawberry ice cream smoothie sounds good to me! Have you tried this strawberry & cream one? It’s sweet and creamy and made without protein powder, so there’s no off texture or taste that the kids might not like.

      Well, they can sort of be used as a protein powder, but they are also a little more versatile because you can blend them into just about anything and they are un-detectable! Which is my fave thing about them. I don’t use them consistently to notice any hair/nail/skin difference, but I love that you can taste anything when you add it to a smoothie like so many protein powders. And they are one-ingredient which is awesome. You can also get collagen from bone broth, aka, making your own bone broth that is fatty and delicious.
