Whether you’ve got a hankering for something fruity, a craving for dessert (when don’t we?), or just need a heavy dose of greens to cancel out the wine you drank last night (that’s how it works, right?), these smoothie recipes are pretty much the only ones you need to get you through life the morning. With only five ingredients, there are no complicated combos or crazy superfoods that will have you running for a bagel instead. From tropical beach drinks to cozy blueberry pancakes, these dairy-free twists serve up your favorite flavors, so you won’t have to look elsewhere, ever.

Note: To make your smoothie like the pro that you are, add all of the ingredients into a blender and blend on high until smooth.
