2-Ingredient Smoothies

Simple fruit smoothies are perfect as a pick me up. With that combination of fruits and refreshing chill, they’re a delicious way to get your nutrients.  These 2-minute 2-ingredient smoothies have the added benefit of being easy on the wallet and fantastic for those in a hurry. Now you have no excuse to skip a healthy breakfast!

All three of the smoothie flavor combinations below include tons of fiber, good carbohydrates, and even a healthy dose of protein to keep you full. And the best part is there is no added sugar, but you still can enjoy some sweetness. So, whether you’re here for weight loss, gains, or just because you’re in a hurry and want something yummy, these are an easy way to meet your goals.

What’s in this easy smoothie recipe?

These simple smoothies are made with simple ingredients you can find at your local grocery store.

  • Frozen Fruit: You can make these smoothies with just about any frozen fruit. The flavor combinations I have put together for this post represent my favorites, but if you have it frozen, you can toss it in!
  • Mixer
    • Protein Powder:Protein powder dissolved in water creates a creamy smoothie with the added benefits of extra flavor, and, of course, pumped-up protein! Vanilla protein powder mixes well with most fruits, but you can also experiment with other flavors to find your favorite combinations.
    • Greek Yogurt: Another protein-packed option, whole or nonfat greek yogurt can also mix with your fruit for a tangy and creamy smoothie. Play around with flavored yogurts for a little fun!
    • Orange Juice Concentrate: At this point, you’re probably asking why not just use the juice. You can, but in order to get the strong flavor you can get from concentrate, you would have to add a ton of juice, which would make your smoothie very watery. Using concentration allows us to control the flavor while keeping the smoothie thick and satisfying! While this recipe calls for orange juice concentrate, you can use any fruit juice concentrate you’d like!
  • Water: We don’t count water when we count ingredients, but you may want to use water to thin out your smoothies so that you can drink them easily. 

Making Your 2-Ingredient Smoothie

There are detailed instructions below for each of the 3 healthy smoothie recipes. Before you get started, make sure you have a good blender. It makes the difference between a smooth and creamy smoothie and a chunky wet mess!

Protein Banana Smoothie

Enjoy a sweet and thick breakfast, perfect as a base for smoothie bowls!

Banana Protein Smoothies

The base of this smoothie is frozen bananas. Add the banana slices to the blender, then add 1 scoop of protein powder and 4 oz of water. Blend your ingredients until you get a thick smoothie. Pour it into your cup, add a straw, and you’re ready to go. 

Tip: Try a variety of protein powders. You could make chocolate banana (chocolate protein powder), chunky monkey (peanut butter protein powder), or banana strawberry (strawberry protein powder) just by changing your protein powder!

Peaches and Cream Smoothie

With sweetness from the peaches and tang from the greek yogurt, this is the perfect combination for a summer morning!

Peaches and Cream Smoothies

Start by putting your frozen peaches in the blender, then add the plain greek yogurt. This smoothie can be very thick, depending on the thickness of the greek yogurt used. If that’s the case, you might want to add a few ounces of water to thin the smoothie to your preferred consistency. Blend your smoothie until it’s, well, smooth, then pour into a cup and take it on the road.

Tip: Try milk, either cow’s milk or a plant based one like oat milk, unsweetened almond milk, or cashew milk, as a thinner if your smoothie is too thick. You might enjoy the enhanced flavor.

Strawberry Orange Smoothie

In your blender, add your frozen strawberries, then your orange juice concentrate and 4 oz of water. Blend them until you get a smoothie consistency, then pour it into a cup and enjoy!

Tip: You can also get creative and use coconut milk or coconut water as a thinner in this one. It adds a deliciously tropical flavor!

  • Watermelon Smoothie: For a refreshing drink, blend frozen watermelon chunks with orange juice concentrate and water. 
  • Mixed Berry Smoothie: Simply replace the peaches in the peaches and cream smoothie with frozen mixed berries to get a new take on that fruit smoothie recipe.
  • Green Smoothie: Add 1 cup spinach or other leafy greens to any of the smoothie recipes above to create a smoothie with extra fiber and tons of antioxidants. You can even turn this into the base of a green smoothie bowl!
  • Healthy Fats Smoothie: Add 1 tablespoon of either chia seeds , flax seeds, or hemp seeds to any of the base recipes. Alternately, you could add a table spoon of almond butter or peanut butter to the banana protein smoothie to increase the good fats. 

FAQs

What kind of blender do I need for this?

Any standard blender should work fine for a two-ingredient smoothie. However, a high-powered blenders might provide smoother results, especially if using ingredients like frozen fruit or leafy greens.

How long should I blend the ingredients?

Blend until smooth and well combined, typically for about 30-60 seconds depending on the power of your blender and the texture you prefer.

Can I make the smoothie ahead of time?

This is not a good recipe for making ahead. If you store it in the fridge, it will melt. If you store it in the freezer, it will freeze hard. That said, you could freeze the smoothie, then take it out 30-40 minutes before you want to drink it and place it on the counter to thaw. Honestly, with a 2 minute time, these smoothies are best made fresh.

Can I make this smoothie in bulk?

Yes, you can easily scale up the recipe to make multiple servings by adjusting the quantities of ingredients accordingly and blending in batches if needed.

  1. I love the simplicity of your 2 ingredient smoothie recipe and love the idea of using plain Greek yogurt in a smoothie. Usually it’s just too tart for me to eat by the spoonful, need to try it in a smoothie.
