If you are brand new to smoothies, an experienced blender, and/or passionate about health and nutrition, you have come to the right place.
We created this site in 2011 to share everything we have learned and continue to learn about health and nutrition. Information that has helped us transform our health. (Read more about us here.)
What you will find at Healthy Smoothie HQ
Over 200 delicious and nutritious smoothie recipes, articles on addressing specific health issues, and detailed profiles of our favorite group of foods, superfoods. This site, and our free email newsletter, have expanded beyond smoothie recipes to include information on a number of things that contribute to good health such as sleep, exercise, and the importance of getting your fats right.
