I love smoothies. Depending on how I’m feeling, one smoothie might be my breakfast for the day or simply serve as a snack. It’s a great way to add fruits and vegetables to your diet. I’m pretty good about eating vegetables regularly, but I’m not big on eating fruit (I’m an enigma I know) so a smoothie is a great boost and creates a way for me to get the nutrients I need all at once.
The best part is that you can literally put whatever you want into the blender. Blueberries, pineapple, kale, apples, yogurt, protein powder, seeds/nuts. Fresh or frozen…there is no perfect formula! I use the Nutri Bullet, but I hear the Ninja blender is also amazing. Target and Wal-Mart both have a wide selection of them and you can find reliable, reasonably priced blenders at department and outlet stores.
Tip: Avoid adding pure sugar. This smoothie is meant to boost your health and curb appetite, not be a sugary treat. Happy smoothie-making!
