Healthy Super Smoothies

by admin

Making smoothies is a great way to get all your fruits & veggies in for the day. Whether you like green smoothies or chocolate protein shakes, there’s a smoothie for you that we guarantee you’ll love! We’ve provided a few of our favourite recipes you can use! If you’re stuck with where to start, here’s a guide you can follow:

  • Pick your fruit. You can choose between strawberries, bananas, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, pineapples, pears, mango… any combo of fruit is great!
  • Fresh or frozen fruit? When you’re making your smoothies, usually frozen fruit is best because it ends up blending thicker & gives you a really cold smoothie.
  • Add a thickener. This is optional. Depending on how thick you want your smoothie, you can leave this out or add as much as you like! Thickeners include unsweetened Greek yogurt, peanut butter, protein powder, or almond butter to name a few. Depending on the taste you’re going for will determine which thickener you choose to put in your smoothie.
  • Choose a liquid.  Some smoothie liquids include whole/ skim milk, almond milk, coconut milk or even a fruit juice. This also depends on whether you want a fruity, nutty or creamy flavour – it’s completely up to you!
  • Throw some add-ins in. Add some extras! For a green juice, you can add in some spinach or kale for additional which will provide some nutritional value for your smoothie. Flax seeds are another add-in (contains omega-3). Other add-ins include mint, cinnamon, or honey.i
