They’re fast. They’re nutritious. We eat them every morning. And sometimes we eat them with lunch or dinner.
Popular with kids as well as parents, smoothies enable you to sneak in all kinds of healthy vegetables and proteins your family members might otherwise turn their nose up at. Make them with totally fresh, raw ingredients and WHAM! You’ve got a real living food on your hands — rich in enzymes, minerals, amino-acids, and other nutrients your body needs.
If you’re new to making smoothies, you may not realize the possible variety available to you. Think of a smoothie as a chance to express your creativity.
To make a good smoothie, you only need a few things:
- Something sweet — This means raw fruits, organic if possible. Bananas, berries, pineapples, peaches, apples, oranges, you name it.
- Added protein — Nut butters, raw eggs from pastured hens, yogurt.
- Healthy liquid — Raw milk, kefir, almond milk, coconut milk, raw cream, mineral rich water, whey. Have fun.
You can also sneak in raw dark green veggies like kale, spinach, or swiss chard and healthy tropical oils to make sure you stay full.
