Smoothie Bonanza – The recipe bundle

Woot woot! We are so thrilled to present this little project that we have been working on lately! We have been turning fruit, berries, vegetables and liquids into smoothies practically every day for the past couple of years. Sometimes we make them for breakfast, other times for dessert, and always after a workout! We can’t think of a fresher, quicker and more delicious way to boost our bodies with energy. Since smoothies have become such a common meal for us, we have picked up some tricks and ideas on how to make them more interesting. Nowadays, we often add extra berries, fruit, nuts or grains to the glass to create a contrast in flavour and texture. We also tend to pour them in layers for a more interesting and beautiful drinking experience.

We have gathered 14 lip-smacking smoothie recipes into a recipe bundle that we just have released as an in-app purchase for our Green Kitchen app. It’s available for $1.99 and the difference from the normal (free) recipe updates in the app is that all these recipes are entirely new and previously unpublished. Make sure you have the latest update of the app and there should be a new box with more info at the top of the grid. You need to have iOS 8 installed to be able to install the update. These recipes are available in English (imperial and metric), German, Italian, Spanish and French inside the app.

We are of course bias but we feel pretty damn proud of these smoothies and hope they will give you new ideas and inspiration next time you are starting up the blender.

Here is a preview of all the recipes.

To give you a preview, we are also sharing one of the recipes here today. It is a fun little method of ours where the topping (muesli, granola, rolled oats, puffed grains or nuts) is placed at the bottom of the glass and then covered with a few spoonfuls of yogurt and filled up with the smoothie. A quick, delicious and slightly unusual way to have breakfast and it also looks spectacular with the different layers. In this recipe we use muesli and thick yoghurt for the bottom two layers and a simple but delicious blueberry smoothie recipe on top, but we encourage you to use this as a starting points and try the technique with some of the other smoothies in the bundle or any smoothie of your own.

Upside-Down Breakfast Smoothie

Smoothie Ingredients
1 cup / 120 g frozen blueberries
1 blood orange or a regular orange, peeled and roughly chopped
1 banana, peeled and roughly chopped
1 cup / 250 ml plant milk of choice
1 tsp ground cardamom

Layers
1 cup / 125 g muesli, granola, puffed grains or just rolled oats
1 cup / 250 ml full-fat plain unsweetened Greek or Turkish yogurt (for a vegan alternative, use coconut yogurt or organic GMO-free soy yogurt)

Add all smoothie ingredients to a blender and blend on a high-speed until smooth. Divide the muesli between two glasses. Spoon the yogurt over the muesli in each glass. Pour the smoothie on top and serve with a spoon.

    Beautiful! Every single one of these pictures is a work of art!

    As a big fan of your recipes, i just updated my app and drunk my first smoothie – the flu killer – which is also super delicious without a flu… ;-)
    And I made lately the spinach crêpes with a curious mind, wondering if my kids would eat them… they loved these spinach crêpes and ate them with powder sugar……!!!
    Rock on!

    Every single one of these sounds amazing and I adore all of the colors!

  12. Posted 24 Jun ’15 at 12:57 | #

    And big compliments to your photographs – they are just awesome…
    As an art historian, i’m always seduced by great pictures and I “eat” them as well ;-)) All are great, but the first one is super cool!

    Wow!
    I’ve bought the e book. I have the app on my husbands iPad but he always forgets his iTunes password, I’m not willing to wait until he sorts it out again haha.
    I’m unable to pick a favourite, they all look amazing. Thank you GKS.

    Thank you so much for this! I just got a power blender, so this is perfect timing:) <3

    Ooooooooh, now you got me so excited for the recipes!

  22. Posted 24 Jun ’15 at 17:39 | #

    This looks so heavenly! My goodness! I love it when granola is at the bottom of a smoothie, but I never thought of layering yogurt after that. Genius! All of these pictures are so beautiful- a feast of the eyes. Congrats on your new book!

    Hi, cannot wait to get going on these exquisite smoothies. Is it still possible to get the Green and Clean app?

  24. Posted 24 Jun ’15 at 18:41 | #

    Bonanza is right! I love seeing all of the bright colors in jars! It makes my mouth water! And what a great idea to do an upside down breakfast smoothie. We have a similar recipe for an acai bowl, where we put granola at the bottom of the bowl or jar. Such yummy last bites! (Sort of like a “save the best for last” kind of thing.) Fun post!
    Happy Summer!

    I was going to purchase the app, I saw your advertisement on Instagram, but the app is actually $4.99 on my phone and if I try buying on the desktop through itunes….

  26. Posted 24 Jun ’15 at 19:20 | #

  27. Posted 24 Jun ’15 at 20:09 | #

    Taw, those photos are absolutely wonderful! They make me want to have my smoothie now! Love your recipes and your wonderful photograpy, a true inspiration.

  28. Posted 25 Jun ’15 at 09:34 | #

    YES! Thanks guys! I’m a smoothie lover as well – especially now that the warm weather kicked in and we all crave a glass of something really cold. Totally downloading this! :D

  29. Posted 25 Jun ’15 at 11:21 | #

    Just tried the upside-down smoothie and I’ve got to tell you THANK YOU for this! (lucky me I had all the ingredients at home :b)
    I’m seriously thinking about purchasing your two ebooks, because if this was delicious I don’t even want to know the others.
    Once again, thank you :) xo

    Hi,

    I purchased the e book, it looks amazing but I didn’t receive a link to download it. I purchased the Detox one and that worked perfectly but this one hasn’t sorry. Could you please email me?

    Thank you,

    Kate

    They all look amazing and its my mission to make them all. Just wondering will the “flu killer” keep in the fridge for a couple of days? Just as it s so potent and you only have a “shot” of it but it makes for 8 ?

  35. Posted 28 Jun ’15 at 08:05 | #

    Bought it and love it! Perfect for summer! Thanks guys!

  36. Posted 28 Jun ’15 at 14:34 | #

    I just wanted to buy your e book, but it don´t work. There is no Buy button or something else. Hope you can fix it soon. Your photos are wonderful as always!

  37. Posted 29 Jun ’15 at 07:31 | #

    The pictures are so beautiful! I all of the sudden crave a lot of juices and smoothies :)

  38. Posted 29 Jun ’15 at 09:47 | #

    Ugh, this pack is amazing! I made the Flu killer right away (bye bye cold) and cannot wait until it’s summer in Australia again to make the Liquid Sunshine and Bounty Jars. Sending lots of love your way!

  39. Posted 30 Jun ’15 at 04:51 | #

    Congratulations guys for another book! The photos are absolutely amazing and I’m pretty sure this collection is truly a smoothie bonanza.

  40. Posted 30 Jun ’15 at 10:39 | #

    Dear God, are you trying to kill me? :)) This is amazing! I`m not muych of a smoothie fan, actually I`ve never made one, can you believe it? But be sure that I`m gonna give it a try now. Let`s see what my readers would think. Thanks a lot for the wonderfull content you put together for us. I really hope I get the chance of buying your book when I travel this year. Amazon is not very fond of shipping to Romania. :))

    Amazing recipes and wonderful pictures. Thanks for the inspiration!

  44. Posted 17 Jul ’15 at 12:48 | #

    Your recipes and photography are always so beautiful. After reading this post, I immediately downloaded both the e-book and your app bundle! I also have your book ‘The Green kitchen’ and recommend it all the time – you seem to have a different take on healthy eating which is so wholesome and nourishing. Kudos x

    Hello, why don’t you make an android app? The system has plenty of users.

  46. Posted 7 Aug ’15 at 16:07 | #

    WOW these look so so SO amazing, as ever. Deffo going to get your app too, and the cookbook, which I am sure will be read over and over again and used till it’s falling apart! Thank you!
