I could never get into smoothies until I learned a piece of vital information that changed my Life.
Instead of using ice (yuck!) I use frozen fruit to thicken my liquid meals.
Sounds simple, right?
But not being a smoothie drinker, I couldn’t think of this one on my own.
You’re welcome 🙂
Wash, chop, and freeze any leftover fruits, vegetables, and herbs you have in your crisper that are speeding towards death.
Some of our favorite flavors have included: Banana, Plum, Papaya, Cherries, Grapes, Beets, Carrots, Avocado, Spinach, Cilantro, Parsley and Basil.
Smoothies are a great meal replacement if you’re looking to cut back on calories.
Depending on what you use, they’re also incredibly filling!
A great way to meet your RDA of fruits and vegetables, double your portion and take it to-go in the morning.
For any ingredients that make you squirm, (kale, perhaps? Or maybe celery?) just include enough that you can gain the nutritional value of the ingredient without having to suffer through the taste.
Following is one of my favorites, and a regular for our hurried mornings. My girls and I drink this in the car on the way to school at least 3 days each week.
