When I think of smoothies three words come to my mind; healthy, quick, and easy.
I’ve experimented with several recipe combinations to find a few that met my expectations. Before I share those recipes, let’s look at what you should always have stocked in your fridge to make smoothies healthy, quick, and easy.
- almond milk
- coconut water
- spinach and/or kale
- your choice of nut butter
Adding healthy supplements help pack in needed vitamins, minerals, and boosts! I’ve added Flora Health Omega Sport+ and Green Blend to my smoothies making a huge difference to the way I feel inside and out! Green Blend adds 2 servings of veggies and aids in digestion. Omega Sport+ is a powerful oil blend that boosts energy and provides joint support. I’ve definitely noticed a difference in my joints and overall post-run recovery!
Investing in a quality blender will make the whole process easier! I found a Nutri-Bullet on sale last year during the holidays. Look for deals on blenders during the holidays and the start of the new year.
Now that you have the foundation needed to make smoothies daily, you can add any seasonal fruit or veggies you have on hand. When I’m really pressed for time, I like to use packaged mixed fruit cups, like those from Dole or Del Monte, with pineapple, peaches, and pears.
Experiment! Create unique tastes! Make it your own signature smoothie!
Here are a few delicious smoothies I found from Flora Health’s blog –
