Breana asks: What do you put in your smoothie?

I like to use jay Robb egg white protein powder in vanilla flavor, a couple handful of spinach, chia seeds, 1cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 of a frozen banana sliced, 4 ice cubes. That is usually my breakfast

What do you put in your smoothie? Smoothies pairs well with fruit and vegetables, honey, small seeds, and coconut. The Eat Well Smoothie designs are healthy wholesome treats and energy boosters. Thank you.

I use a blend of frozen blueberries and strawberries, as well as frozen peaches and mangoes. I use a cup of milk, a tablespoon or 2 of vanilla yogurt, a cup of mixed berries and a cup of mangoes/peaches. Makes a nice filling smoothie to take to work in the morning.

I put both cinnamon and a tsp of turmeric in fruit and veggie smoothies, spices that are beneficial to health. I also add several leaves of romaine or other lettuce if I don't have fresh spinach.

Protein. I skip the dairy and go for healthy hemp seed that helps make it creamy. Ground flax seed for cholesterol reducing fiber is great in a breakfast smoothie along with that whole grain oatmeal. Avocados not only make it creamy, but help your body utilize nutrients in the other green veggies used.
