Are you smoothies sugar bombs?
Oh no! We must change this now.
Imagine making a beautiful smoothie, thinking you were doing something great for your body and BOOM! Your sweet cravings go wild after drinking it. It doesn’t have to be that way. Add some of these to boost nutrition.
-add one or more of these to boost nutrition: chia seeds, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds,
-make it even greener by adding 1/2 teaspoon of nutrient packed spirulina or chlorella
-Add 1 of these to include healthy fats: avocado/unsweetened coconut milk/almond butter
– Use cinnamon to add sweetness
I kept the recipes low in sugar by using water as the liquid, however, you can use dairy or non dairy milk or yogurt with water as the liquid.
Many people prefer their smoothies to be cold, so add 5-6 ice cubes if not using frozen fruit. Blueberries/strawberries/green tipped banana/mango are great to freeze to add in as sweetener and to chill.
Leafy greens can be interchangeable, so you can use spinach, kale, parsley or collard greens, bearing in mind that spinach is the most neutral taste. Collards/Kale can be bitter, but the fruit helps with that
