There is no denying my love for smoothies! I literally have one every single day. Yes, even though it’s the winter. They are the perfect snack to bring to work. I pop them in the freezer when arriving and eat them for a snack at around 9 o’clock. What I like to call my second breakfast. Such a tasty sweet treat and I know that I’m filling my body with lots of good vitamins, minerals, and fats. The best part about smoothies is you can change them up however you like. Haven’t had enough veggies today?? Just throw in some spinach or kale. Want to add some healthy fats? Add avocado or coconut oil. Whatever your little heart desires!
Did I mention they are easy? I prefer to use frozen fruit since they are pre chopped and you literally just dump them in the blender. Unless we have ripe fruit growing in our garden or course! Honestly, I usually don’t measure anything and just pour in what I think will work and hope for the best. But for you friends I measured!
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mangoes (or fresh)
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries or strawberries (or fresh)
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup milk (preferably whole and raw) or a milk substitute like almond
- Place ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and enjoy!
