Hello, Tina! I have my list of favorite smoothie recipes and gladly share it with you! First one is with carrots, celery an apples. You need two carrots, an apple, 225 grams of celery and 235 ml of water. Instead of water I often use kefir or milk, it makes my cocktail more nutritious. This brightly orange drink is great for our immune system. I spend a lot of time in front of PC and when my eyes are tired I know that I need carrot salad or this amazing drink. It really works!
Do you eat enough of greens during your busy days, Tina? I do not think so. That`s why you have to try this perfect green smoothie with spinach and frozen berries! Last time I used my favorite blueberries, it was amazing. You will need a ripe banana, 1000 grams of berries, 75 grams of fresh spinach, 200 grams of liquid (water or kefir). This drink is cool for weight loss, the dose of spinach in it has only 20 calories! You`ll be also surprised how tasty it is! Enjoy!
Another of my favorites is made of kale and pineapple. It is soooo creamy and filling! I put 150 grams of kale leaves, 100 grams of milk, a banana, 50 grams of greek yogurt, some pineapple, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (that`s what makes our drink super creamy and nutritious), 2 tablespoons of honey (optional). It may be strange but you will not actually taste the kale here. It is more like a delicious dessert with lots of benefits to our health. Done! You have your perfect breakfast smoothie. You won`t get hungry for a long time, believe me 🙂 Enjoy!
It`s good to have at least one frozen component in your smoothie, it will make the structure better and taste refreshing. This recipe is super rich in fiber. So, take 100 grams of frozen berries, 75 grams of spinach, 100 ml of milk, 150 ml of plain yogurt, a few tablespoons of honey, and a tablespoon of flax seed. The portion is for two people and it takes only 5 minutes to prepare. What milk do you prefer? In this smoothie, you can use soy, coconut or even rice one. Hope you will like it!
Since you learn about the smoothie components proportions, you do not have to measure the ingredients precisely, it`s all about improvisation now. Let`s be ingenious! Strawberry – pineapple – kale! Banana – peach – greens! Grapes – avocado – apple! Cherry – spinach! Frozen cherries is a must-have in your kitchen treasure, don`t you agree, Tina? They taste wonderful in a combination of milk, banana and spinach. Need it less caloric? Replace milk with water and enjoy your healthy breakfast!
Strawberry – pineapple – kale smoothie does not have that veggie taste you might not like. The drink is creamy and delicious! Any strawberries in your fridge saved in June? Lucky you are! 🙂 Mix berries with milk and honey first, add banana, kale and pineapple. Oh! And the apple juice, 70 ml is quite enough I guess. Some important vitamins are gone during the first few minutes after blending, I hope you know it, Tina. Serve your dring immediately and enjoy the healthiest meal ever!
