How to make healthy tasty smoothies?
Since we are smoothie buddies, I want to share with you my secret to making healthy tasty smoothies. Find below some of my tips and tricks on how to make the smoothie of your dreams!
Use the best ingredients that you can – It doesn’t matter if you’re using fresh or frozen plants, the most important thing is to use real plants in your smoothies, instead of powders or juices for instance. If you can, use only organic plants because they have more nutrients and less pesticide residues.
Use more veggies and only a few fruits – Vegetables are naturally low in sugar and higher in nutrients compared to most fruits.
Frozen plants will make it easy – When using frozen plants in your smoothies, you can literally skip any kind of prep work. That’s because frozen plants are already washed and cut. This way your smoothies will always turn out creamy, perfectly blended and super refreshing.
Use organic plants if you can – Everybody knows that organic plants have more nutrients per serving and less pesticide residues. They’re better for your health but also better for the environment, especially for the soil they’re grown in.
Always stick to using whole foods instead of powders – While it’s true that powders can boost the nutrient content of a smoothie (think protein powder or ginger powder) it’s important to understand that we consume smoothies for other reasons too – think fiber, enzymes or micronutrients.
Smoothies are a great source of various healthy fibers, plus raw enzymes and phytonutrients (including antioxidants), just to name a few of the healthy nutrients found in smoothies made using real plants.
Use plenty of healthy fats – Good fats like avocado and coconut will make your smoothie creamy and also provide your body with the fatty acids it needs in order to thrive.
Add enough liquid but don’t over do it – This is easy! We certainly don’t want a “watery” smoothie, rather one that is well mixed and creamy, right?!
Use plain water – My advice is to use plain water as your main liquid base, but you can also used homemade nut milks or coconut water. Please avoid using juice or other kinds of “drinks”, water is perfectly fine. Just make sure to use pure spring water, if possible.
