Nothing says summer like a nice refreshing smoothie. Sometimes it’s even the dead of winter, but you’re really craving some extra nutrients, and the NutriBullet you got for Christmas is just itching to be used. The versatility of the smoothie is nothing to be ignored. Have it for breakfast on the go, as a post workout source of energy, to kill some cravings, or just to cool down in the sun. J. Lo certainly knows the power of the almighty smoothie.
If you’re looking for a new way to blend all of your healthy favorites together, there are tons of healthy smoothie recipes at your finger tips. Smoothies are an awesome way to get your daily dose of vitamins and calcium. There’s also room to throw in some protein powder if the typical protein shakes just doesn’t do it for you. Plus, if you use frozen fruit, you can buy your groceries in bulk as well as adding a nice thicker and “slushier” consistency to your refreshment.
But maybe you’re new to the magical world of smoothie crafting, and you don’t quite know what to put into your concoction. Can you mix greens and fruit? Does peanut butter clog up the blender? What if you just throw in everything currently in your fridge and it turns out to be blacktop tar?!
Thanks to the wonderful and knowledgeable people at Super Skinny Me, knowing what to put in your smoothie just became a breeze. This killer smoothie guide shows you what makes a great base, what to add if you like your smoothie on the thicker side, and some awesome extra superfood boosts. It can’t get any easier than that!
While you are blending your heart out, keep in mind that although fruit is awesome and you should be eating at least three servings a day, there’s still a good amount of sugar in it, so don’t overdo!
