Stevia Smoothies Recipes

Smoothie Recipes made with Stevia

Peach Strawberry Stevia Mint Juice on the Rocks
Four or Five Organic Strawberries
1 small or medium peach or a few slices of frozen peaches
½  ice
¾- 1 c water
juice from half a lemon
Several Mint Leaves
¼ tsp or so of stevia (depends on how sweet you like it)
Blend it in your blender til frothy – delicious. Serve over ice.

Iced Mango Hemp Protein Powder Blend
¾ c frozen organic mango chunks
2 NOW Vanilla Stevia packets Now - French Vanilla Stevia Packets 100/Box
½ c  Ice
½ c water
¾ c  Organic Almond Milk 
Blend until completely smooth

Adding hemp protein powder and micro plant powder (which is also called silica powder ) to your stevia smoothie recipes adds tons of benefits. Both help regulate your metabolism, leave you feeling full longer and have great detoxification properties in addition to the nourishment they give your cells. Try them!

Blueberry Strawberry Hemp Protein Powder Smoothie 
3-4 Organic strawberries (frozen is okay)
½ c  Organic blueberries
1 tsp Micro Plant powder
½ c Organic Almond or Trader Joe’s Whole Grain Milk
½ c  Water
just over ½ cup ice
Blend until very smooth.

The hemp protein powder gives this smoothie an earthy almost green taste but because of the fruit and stevia, it is still very sweet. Hemp protein powder is low in calories and high in protein which is great when you are building lean muscle or trying to lose weight. You can omit the hemp protein powder or substitute it for a whey protein or a soy based powder if you prefer for taste.

Mint Stevia Sweet Lemonade with watermelon/strawberries – whatever you have in season
1 whole lemon, seeds and skin removed
Juice of 2 lemons
Mint leaves – to taste
¾ c Ice
1 c water
chunks of watermelon = to about 1 cup – can use frozen strawberries or other fruit that is seasonal
Blend in the blender until frothy- serve over ice – keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days
