Need a high-calorie smoothie that’s over 500 calories and more? Check out these smoothie recipes, all made with healthy fresh ingredients that are full of nutrition.

3 high calorie smoothies

Smoothies are great for several reasons.

First, they are adaptable. Meaning, you can literally put whatever ingredients you want into a smoothie.

There are no hard and true rules to smoothies.

Second, they are easy to make and portable. Many of us are on the go and do not have time to sit down and eat full meals sometimes.

Preparing a smoothie and bringing it with us is an easy way to get the nutrition and calories we need.

Third, they are fun to make. It’s great to be able to experiment with different recipes and flavors.

The options are literally endless.

The smoothie recipes here are high-calorie smoothies, meaning they are 500 calories or above.

So, these high-calorie smoothies are packed with healthy ingredients that will be substantial enough to be a meal replacement and help you gain weight the right way.

You will want a few things in the kitchen to make sure that your smoothies are successful and tasty.

Most importantly, you’re going to want high-quality whole-food ingredients. A lot of smoothie ingredients are freezer-friendly and/or shelf-stable (like cartons of nut milk and jars of nut butter).

Aside from an assortment of various ingredients, you’re going to want a good blender. Vitamix is a great choice.

However, it’s costly. While the money is well spent, it’s a fantastic kitchen appliance. Alternatively, there are some more affordable options out there.

Some other blenders to consider would be the Ninja blender or another blender with various size options.

In case you’re not much of a reader, I’ve got all the recipes on the video!

1. Healthy Carrot Cake Smoothie

First, we’ll start off with a pretty untraditional smoothie recipe. I’m sure most of you think of fruit and berries when you think of smoothies.

But this isn’t the case here. Instead, we will develop the delicious flavors of a rich, spicy carrot cake in smoothie-form.

Greek yogurt and almond milk create a smooth, creamy base for the smoothie. The fresh ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg will give you the traditional flavor you would find in a carrot cake.

Plus, being packed with a whole banana and a handful of walnuts means that it will definitely leave you feeling full and satisfied.

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup carrots (chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

2. Coconut Almond Spinach Smoothie

Green smoothies are always fun. People often look at you a little funny when you have one in your hands.

But once they give it a try, it’s hard to believe they even doubted you! Green smoothies are often packed with fresh, bright flavors.

In this case, the green smoothie is going to be creamy and a bit nutty in flavor. The almond milk develops the nutty base for the smoothie.

But ultimately, it’s the fiber-packed pumpkin seeds that will finish out the exceptional flavor and help you feel satisfied.

coconut almond spinach smoothie


  • 1 cup of canned coconut milk
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cups spinach

3. Blueberry Protein Smoothie

This blueberry protein smoothie is a delightful change from a traditional berry smoothie. It’s packed with protein-filled items like protein powder, oats, and Greek yogurt.

There are a lot of different items out there when it comes to protein powders. So when you’re buying protein powders, keep a few things in mind.

Try to find ones that are vegan and low in sugar.

This protein powder is a great option. Not only is it vegan-friendly, but it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free.

blueberry protein smoothie


  • 2 cups of blueberries
  • 1/2 cup oat milk
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder

  • Calories: 567
  • Fats: 5.1g
  • Protein: 34g
  • Carbs: 104g
  • Fiber: 14g
  • Sugar: 50g

4. Coffee Protein Smoothie

We all need our everyday cup of coffee, right? Why not pair it with a cool, refreshing smoothie as a way to mix it up?

This coffee protein smoothie has the same caffeine we would get from our daily cup of coffee. Additionally, it’s going to provide protein for that extra energy boost.

Be sure to cool your cup of coffee before putting it in the blender. Alternatively, you could keep a bottle of cold brew coffee like this in the fridge for recipes like this one.

coffee protein smoothie


  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee (cooled down)
  • 1 large banana
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 592
  • Fats: 29g
  • Protein: 25g
  • Carbs: 68g
  • Fiber: 11g
  • Sugar: 37g

5. Pineapple Banana Smoothie

A good portion of us all probably wishes we were on a warm beach somewhere with a tropical beverage in hand, right?

While this recipe might not bring you to the beach, it is a delicious alternative to a frozen tropical drink.

The pineapple and banana flavors are bright and delicious. They also do an excellent job at hiding the ingredient that’s going to pack on the protein, fiber, and calories.

What might that ingredient be? You probably will never guess it.

We add white beans to this smoothie! It may seem strange, but the beans provide added nutrition and create the silky texture we all love in smoothies.

pineapple banana smoothie


  • 1 banana
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup white beans (canned)
  • 1 cup soy milk

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 615
  • Fats: 11g
  • Protein: 22g
  • Carbs: 114g
  • Fiber: 19g
  • Sugar: 45g

6. Banana Cinnamon Oatmeal Smoothie

Do you like a warm bowl of oatmeal in the winter? Then you will love this banana cinnamon oatmeal smoothie.

It’s creamy, sweet, and has the delicious flavor of earthy cinnamon.

This smoothie also has some great nutritional value. This includes having 34 grams of protein.

What is the best almond butter to buy when making smoothies? You’ll want to find an unsweetened, natural version for the best taste and health benefits.

You can find some online or at your local grocery store.

banana cinnamon oatmeal smoothie


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 large banana
  • 5-6 ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp honey

  • Calories: 532
  • Fats: 17g
  • Protein: 34g
  • Carbs: 67g
  • Fiber: 12g
  • Sugar: 36g

7. Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

Believe it or not, avocados make a great smoothie ingredient. They are a simple way to add healthy fats and fiber.

And actually have more potassium than bananas. It’s clearly a good idea to throw them into your smoothie recipes.

And it’s not a new thing to pair creamy avocados with cocoa to create delicious chocolate treats. This smoothie is one of those items.

It’s creamy, sweet, and slightly bitter because of the cocoa – much like a brownie!

Who wouldn’t love a smoothie that tastes like a brownie?

chocolate avocado smoothie


  • 1 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • a pinch of nutmeg
  • a pinch of salt

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 589
  • Fats: 27g
  • Protein: 20g
  • Carbs: 75g
  • Fiber: 16g
  • Sugar: 42g

8. Orange Coconut Protein Smoothie

This orange coconut smoothie is another great alternative to the traditional fruit smoothie. It’s slightly sweet and tart with a nutty flavor as well.

Use fresh-squeezed orange juice, if you can. It will have the best flavor.

Plus, if you’re squeezing fresh juice, your orange will be handy for the orange zest. That extra ingredient will really boost the flavor and tartness of the smoothie.

Keep in mind that this smoothie really packs in the calories. In fact, it has 770 calories per serving!

Therefore, it would be a great smoothie to have at the beginning of the day to boost your energy.

orange coconut protein smoothie


  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 770
  • Fats: 40g
  • Protein: 45g
  • Carbs: 68g
  • Fiber: 12g
  • Sugar: 36g

9. Blackberry Raspberry Smoothie

This next smoothie is a fresh take on a traditional berry smoothie. Using blackberries and raspberries creates a rich but still slightly tart flavor.

The tartness is balanced out by also adding natural sweetness by using honey. Plus, it has vanilla extract, which elevates any smoothie.

Again, avocado is added to increase the calorie content, making the smoothie extra smooth.

blackberry raspberry smoothie


  • 1 cup blackberries (frozen)
  • 1/2 cup raspberries (frozen)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup oat milk

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • Calories: 554
  • Fats: 18g
  • Protein: 19g
  • Carbs: 88g
  • Fiber: 24g
  • Sugar: 53g

10. Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie

The final smoothie is going to bring you back to your childhood. It’s fruity and nutty and tastes a lot like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

The ingredient list is pretty short, so make sure you’re buying high-quality, nutritious ingredients.

For example, you’ll want to get peanut butter without any added ingredients when buying peanut butter. All-natural, creamy peanut butter is going to be the best choice.

Also, you can use any milk that you’d like for this recipe. Try almond, coconut, or oat milk if you are trying to stay dairy-free.

strawberry peanut butter smoothie


  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup strawberries (frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp milk

Per Serving:

Hi Thandiwe, that's all I have for now :)

Nutrition breakdowns do not appear to be completely accurate based on my assessment. It would be helpful if you showed a nutrition breakdown of each ingredient and a complete description of the product used. For example #10 Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie must use sweetened frozen strawberries to help boost the calorie content. If sweetened strawberries how did you calculate the sugar content ? Do you count added and natural sugars or just added sugar?

The coconut milk you list in one of your previous comments is the canned type which readers should realize is extremely high in saturated fat. Very debatable whether this is a healthy source of fat. Readers should also be aware that the sugar content of some recipes are extremely high. Note 4 grams sugar=1tsp sugar.

Karl I hope you are receptive to my suggestions.

Hi Colleen,

I use Nutritionix to calculate the nutritional values for all these smoothies. You can plug in the ingredients and see the values. I suggest not to use anything with added sugar - fruits, a little honey, maple syrup, and other sweeter things that already have enough sugar in them. You mostly want to add ingredients with healthy fats and protein to bump up those calories. Smoothies in general have plenty of carbs which you obviously want to gain weight.

Obviously, some smoothies have more saturated fat than others, and I do not recommend drinking the same smoothie every day. While one day you might have a bit more saturated fats, another day you can make a different smoothie completely to balance it out. You have also complained about the smoothies having too much sugar. The truth is fruits have a ton of sugar in general but it's natural and much easier on your body than just straight-up sugar itself. The fruits, while they have more sugar than veggies, also tend to have a ton of fiber (which is EXTRA important for the health of your digestive track) and carbs that aren't sugars.
