How to make a smoothie

  1. 1. How to Make a Smoothie
  2. 2. Are you wondering how to make a smoothie?Whether your goal is to lose weight, to gain muscle mass, to have more energy, or to eat healthier, smoothies provide a quick and delicious way to deliver a nutrition-punch to the body (and way tastier and effective that a multi- vitamin).The following is a 5 step framework for making a never ending array of delicious and nutritious smoothies.
  3. 3. How to Make a Smoothie in 5 Easy StepsStep 1: Add FruitPick 2-3 types of fruits.Here are some of my favourites fruits you can add to your smoothie recipe:
  4. 4.  Apple Avocado Banana Blueberries Grapes Kiwi Pomegranate seeds (Note: blend extra longer than usual to eliminate the crunchy bits) Pears Peaches Raspberries Strawberries
  5. 5. Step 2: (Optional) Add Green VeggiesOptionally add 1-2 types of leafy greens to your smoothie recipe.Pick between:ArugulaBeet GreensKaleLettuceSpinach
  6. 6. Step 3: Add Your LiquidsAdd 1-2 cups of liquids and base (see step #4) – enough to fill the base up just below the fruit and veggies in the blender.
  7. 7. Here are some liquids to choose from:Coconut WaterCold Tea (Green Tea, Rooibos Tea, etc)Juice (organic, ideally not from concentrate)Milk (Almond, Dairy, Rice, Soy)Water
  8. 8. Step 4: Add Your BaseA base can be added to make a smoothie thicker, more smooth and more nutritious. While Probiotic Yogurt is undoubtedly my favourite, the following are all safe bets:
  9. 9. Chia Seeds (sit unblended in the liquid for 2-3 minutes before blending to have the chia “puff up”)Ice Cubes (generally not required if you freeze your fruit for smoothies)Natural Peanut ButterOats (for breakfast smoothies)Yogurt
  10. 10. Step 5: Add Your Superfood BoostAdding a boost to your smoothie gives you the opportunity to double- down on your nutrients per glass and to potentially increase the absorption rates of your superfood supplements.
  11. 11. Bee PollenFish OilFlax Oil or Flax MealGreen Superfood PowdersSmoothie Protein PowderHemp Seeds
  12. 12. Step 6: Blend!Make sure you wrote down your smoothie recipe formula (in case you have discovered a winning combination).Blend until Smooth.Enjoy. And please comment on this post with your recipe if you’ve come up with a delicious hit!http://simplysmoothierecipes.com
