Start your day with a nutrient-packed sipper — or blend one up as a snack — thanks to these deliciously healthy smoothie recipes.

But which combinations offer the best flavor and biggest nutrition punch? That’s where this list comes in. We rounded up smoothies that have a good balance of protein, fat and carbs to feel satisfying even after the last sip. We also looked for smoothies with vegetables or other healthy add-ins like seeds, yogurt, fresh herbs or nut butter. Prepare to start blending some next-level smoothies.
