We love smoothies and are always looking for inspiring new recipes. 

The three delicious smoothies shared by withinUs™ TruSupporter Monika Hibbs are beautiful and most importantly, nutritious.

The Oh-So-Green Smoothie is definitely a withinUs™ Team favourite.



Who doesn’t love a fresh cold blended smoothie to start off the day? What better way to get going in the morning than with a healthy start with smoothies packed with vitamins and goodness! They’re versatile, nourishing, and always popular with my little ones. I always think I’m winning the day when my kids drink their entire smoothie first thing in the morning alongside their breakfast.

In order to throw together a yummy, healthy smoothie in a pinch, I always keep my freezer stocked with berries (we love strawberries), pineapple, spinach or kale, and bananas. (Once they’re super ripe, I peel them, pop them in a freezer bag or container, and stash them until we need them.) If I have extra time I’ll also portion out all the ingredients into ziplock baggies for busy mornings in the future.


I’ve rounded up three of my favourite combinations with three very different flavours.

Strawberry Burst Smoothie: Super refreshing with lots of flavours.
Strawberries + Raspberries + Peaches + Banana + Hemp seeds + Lemon juice + Almond milk + Coconut water.

Oh-So-Green Smoothie: Rejuvenating and packed with nutrition + goodness.
Kale/spinach + Apple + Banana + Mango or Pineapple + Cucumber + Almond milk + Coconut water + Chia seeds.

Tropical Smoothie: Tastes like a dose of sunshine, like a delicious Piña Colada!
Pineapple + Mango + Banana + Flaked coconut + Hemp hearts or vanilla protein powder + Coconut milk + Coconut water.

No matter which smoothie I’m making, I blend it on high for about a minute. It’s possible you may need a little more liquid. I’ll add more almond milk or coconut water. (Also, if you’re serious about smoothie making, you ought to find a good high-powered blender.) 

My personal favourite add-in is a scoop of withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen to finish it off!
