Winter is usually synonymous with comfort food (not that we're complaining), but there's still something to be said for the ease of smoothies—and nothing feels quite as good as getting in some greens without tasting them at all. These seven winter-themed varieties taste indulgent and have enough nutrients to balance out who-needs-to-know-how-many cheese-based meals.

Only the truly psychic among us could guess how much goodness is packed into this smoothie (chia seeds, rolled oats, protein powder, and baby spinach). It's our new fortune-teller test.

2. Winter Fruit Green Smoothie

Grapes are semi-unconventional in smoothies, but after tasting this one, we can't believe they're not in more recipes. Paired with clementines and baby spinach, this recipe is light, sweet, and filled with ingredients you likely already have at home.

3. Cranberry Orange Smoothie

Super basic and no less delicious for it. Just five ingredients (yogurt, cranberries, orange juice, a banana, and a handful of ice), and you're sipping pretty.

4. Pumpkin Protein Shake

Not your average bulk-bought protein shake, this one has a bold pumpkin flavor (and doesn’t taste chalky). We’re into it.

5. Chocolate Berry Green Protein Smoothie

Chocolate protein powder gives this smoothie its rich color, while Greek yogurt and frozen berries mix to make an on-point texture.

6. Green Apple Pie Smoothie

We made this guy immediately upon seeing it, and we have no regrets—it's that good (and we're all about getting in our kale without tasting it).

7. Almond Coconut Mocha Smoothie

We saved the best for last: It's dairy-free, vegan, and looks as good as it tastes. A teaspoon of coffee makes it the perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
