Breana asks: What do you put in your smoothie?


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.

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 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

How can you say full fat coconut milk has no nutrients?

always try to give smoothies a chance for the nutrition etc but find the texture really boring ( dont like milkshkes either) just so thick and unctuous ugh!

I love this one that I created for a healthy to-go breakfast:
1 c - plain unsweetened almond milk
1 ea - small very ripe banana
1 ea - very ripe small avocado
1 ring - fresh pineapple cut up (or 1 ring canned in its own juice)
2-3 tbsp - wheat germ
2 tsp - agave nectar or local honey

Buzz everything together until smooth and enjoy!
322 calories, healthy fats, slow burning carbs and great fiber!
Keeps me full and energizes all morning!
