Easy Smoothie “How To”

Making a smoothie can be an easy way to get more nutrients in your body while also squashing sugar cravings. Smoothies can be used as a meal replacement, post workout drink, or as a dessert or “sweet treat.”

Following a basic template of how to create the most delicious smoothies is quiet easy. Once you understand the basics, you can pick and play with really an unlimited amount of smoothie combinations.

  1. Fill the cup with about 50% the leafy greens to blender cup.

  2. Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of your favorite fruit or vegetables.

  3. Add about 2-3 cups of your choice of liquid. This can be your choice of milk alternative, hemp, almond, coconut milk(unsweetened), green tea, and or water. (I don’t recommend regular dairy milk)

  4. Add a healthy fat. Seeds like hemp, sunflower, pumpkin, chia, or flax. (These will also add FIBER) Add a handful of various nuts of your choice, 1-2 TBSP peanut butter, or any nut butter. Avocado (will add great consistency to any smoothie). Just to be clear, you do not need to add all of the above, just pick and choose.

  5. Add a Protein Powder- vanilla and chocolate are great staples to have on hand.

  6. Add spices. Vanilla extract, Cinnamon (can help slow absorption of carbohydrates.) If you need a (pick me up,) add some cayenne. Turmeric and ginger (are great for decreasing inflammation.) **Could add sweetener-I would use Monkfruit.

  7. Add ice for a cool blast. The greater amount of ice, the thicker the smoothie. Stay above 5 cubes to prevent very thin smoothies.

  8. Blend.

  9. Enjoy!
