Remember the perfect food to keep you healthy while you’re at home is a green smoothie. Green Smoothies are some of the simplest ways to get lots of ideal daily nutrition. If you’re new to making them, here’s the basic ingredients. These are just a few suggestions, and there are plenty more! Base what you choose by personal tastes and nutritional needs:
1. A Liquid: Water, almond milk, coconut milk, milk.
2. A Protein Source: Yogurt, peanut butter, protein powder.
3. A Veggie: Kale, spinach, chard.
4. A Fruit: Berries, tropical fruit.
Toss a cup/scoop of each in a blender and you’re good to go. Experiment with portions that work for you. Emphasize the veggies, even if you don’t care for them. The greatest secret about smoothies for picky eaters is that between the fruit and protein, you won’t taste the veggies!
Another tip (once you find a good mix) is to make large batches and pour them into multiple reusable sports bottles. You can put a few in the fridge and a few in the freezer for another day.
To take things further, do a quick search online for natural smoothie recipes and you’ll get all kinds of great ideas.
