The starving student: Smoothie edition

Enough with the overpriced Booster Juice, Jugo Juice and Liquid Nutrition smoothies that are just as easy to make at home. Smoothies are one of the easiest and quickest snacks to make and bring along with you to campus. Check out some of the recipes below to try out this week:

Berry and Banana

  •  1 cup of mixed frozen berries
  • 2 spoonfuls of vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1 banana

The Classic Green Smoothie 

  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 cup of kale
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • 2 ice cubes


  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of acai powder
  • 1 cup of mango (frozen or fresh)
  • ½ banana


  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 2 peeled kiwis
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 cups of ice

 Chocolate and Banana

  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 handful of ice cubes
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk

All of these recipes are very easy to make on your own, depending on what your fruit preferences are. All of the recipes above are able to accommodate add-ons such as chia seeds, coconut shavings and fresh fruit on top — whatever you like really! These ingredients can just be stuck in the blender all at once and voila — you’re basically a total Vancouverite now.
