Strawberries and frozen banana—again? Power out of a smoothie slump by blending new ingredients, like hemp seeds, winter squash, and dried figs, into a health-boosting beverage your taste buds will love.

You just hit the gym and now you’re equal parts hungry and thirsty—which do you satisfy first? Well, Sarma Melngailis, owner of New York City juice joint One Luck Duck Juice & Takeaway and author of Raw Food Real World, serves up a smoothie that is as filling as it is refreshing. Avocado delivers a hearty dose of hunger-fighting healthy fat while coconut water pumps this post-workout smoothie full of hydrating potassium.

3 cups diced pineapple

1 tbsp coconut butter (optional)
2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
