12 Smoothies To Make This Summer!

5 Comments | Written on July 9, 2013 at 12:00 am , by

I am a huge smoothie aficionado, and have found that there are 3 important aspects to construct the perfect sippable meal or snack.  If you follow these simple building blocks, the creative possibilities are endless!

Keys to a great smoothie:

1)  BaseThis can be any liquid to get the smoothie going!

I have used milk (dairy and non-dairy), yogurt, kefir, coconut water, tea, and juice.   I am sure there are more options out there.

What do you like to use as the base of your smoothies?

2)  Fruit and Veggies This is where you can pack your smoothie with flavor and nutrition!

When it comes to the fruit and veggies in a smoothie, you can always turn to your favorites, but don’t be scared to think outside the box.  I love strawberries and bananas, but have experimented with kale, spinach, endive, radicchio and even carrot baby food for a smooth, pureed veggie addition!

What’s the craziest ingredient you have ever used in a smoothie?

3)  Mix-insThis is your chance to get creative, boost flavor and sneak in healthy additions.  

You can add a protein boost, healthy fats, seeds, nuts, herbs, spices, citrus, cocoa, espresso, and more.   This is where you can really experiment with flavorful and trendy ingredients to create your own unique smoothie creation.

What’s your favorite boost to add to a smoothie?
