This  arugula smoothie recipe is a healthy fresh way to start the day- with greens and fruit blended for a refreshing breakfast. This fantastic smoothie is a great way to rise and shine! 

This 5 minute blender breakfast recipe is a great way to use arugula. It can be made high protein with a optional scoop of protein powder – but tastes great as-is!

Want to add more arugula to your diet, but tired of salads?  This delicious tropical arugula smoothie will give you all the benefits of eating your greens, without the earthy taste. Lots of bright sweet fruits like pineapple and orange pair nicely with the arugula, and combines everything together into a delicious and healthy smoothie!

I love the fresh and vibrant flavor of this drink, which is so perfect with sweet fruits – this is one of the arugula smoothie recipes, and we make it every time we have extra arugula from the garden!

This is a great refreshing morning smoothie, or great after a workout. It’s sweet, tangy, and loaded with good-for-you ingredients.

A Healthy Breakfast With Arugula To Enjoy Every Morning

This arugula smoothie recipe is a fantastic way to start your day on the right foot!  While arugula isn’t traditionally consumed for breakfast, this recipe makes it easy to get your greens in first thing in the morning.

Arugula can be slightly bitter and peppery, so I add plenty of fruit (you can use fresh or frozen) and dates to sweeten this smoothie naturally. Browse all of our easy breakfast recipes here to find your next favorite!

What’s In This Smoothie with Arugula?

  • Arugula Greens – also known as rocket.
  • Pineapple
  • Banana
  • Medjool Dates – dates add natural sweetness to recipes, and have a fantastic flavor! I’ve been adding dates to everything lately – I buy dates by the box and add them to smoothies, desserts, and just enjoy them as a snack.
  • Orange
  • Flaxseed: I always add a scoop in my oatmeal for a little extra nutritional punch!  This flaxseed meal has a wonderful nutty flavor too.  Flaxseeds have a ton of amazing health benefits, so add a scoop to breakfasts, lunches, or smoothies!
  • Water
  • Ice

The Best Blender for the Job

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my high-speed Vitamix blender is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This appliance will blend even the toughest of ingredients (frozen fruit, anyone?) into pulp. 

I prefer using my blender to my food processor for sauces or homemade hummus, as it’s much easier to clean out the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis, if not twice a day!

Frozen Fruit Recipes For the Win!

I used frozen pineapple and banana in this smoothie instead of fresh. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can have frozen fruit to use in smoothies in no time.

Check out all my recipes that use Freezer Ingredients on The Herbeevore – great for those days when you want a meal ready fast! And check out my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples for long-lasting staples that I always keep on hand.

If you grow arugula in your garden, you can cut the leaves, wash them, and put them in an airtight bag to freeze. That way you can enjoy frozen greens in your recipes and smoothies all year long!

Dietary Modifications

  • This recipe is vegan and gluten free – if you are adding a protein powder, make sure it keeps with any dietary modifications you require. I like a vegan and gluten free vanilla protein for this smoothie, if I’m adding a powder!
