Low on energy? Well, coffee’s not the answer, and if you’ve got 5 minutes to spare (that’s generally the time it will take to make a cup of coffee anyway) then you’re in luck – we can use that time to make a healthy, energy-filled smoothie!

These smoothie recipes will have you going from zero to hero in no time and it will take very little of your time: 5 minutes maximum

Aside from a little time, you will also need a blender/food processor and the ingredients that each recipe requires.

This simply titled berry smoothie is a combination of blackberries, blueberries and cherries amongst other nutritious goodies.

Blueberries for their high antioxidant levels.

Cherries are known to reduce muscle pain.


  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 cup cherries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon flax oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • a dash of cinnamon

Blend the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth and creamy.


Strawberry Smoothie

Aside from the obvious energy benefits strawberries also do the following for your body: protects your heart, increases good cholesterol, lowers your blood pressure and guards against cancer.


  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 a frozen banana, sliced
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave syrup

Mix all of the ingredients in your blender, and adjust sweetener to taste (if desired).


The Green One

This is a green smoothie.

A word of warning to the inexperienced, green smoothies might not taste as good on the palate as the other smoothies, but they are oh so good for your body – why do you think the hulk has a green hue? It’s because he’s been drinking his green smoothies religiously!


  • 1/2 a cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 handful of kale
  • 1 apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1 pear, peeled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Mix all of the ingredients together in your blender, if it comes out a bit thick – pour a bit of water in to dilute it.

Any of these smoothies should give you enough energy to last the day (and maybe even the next day).

Make it a habit whenever you feel like your body needs that little bit of pep!
