4. Pineapple Banana

Normally we don’t add ice to our smoothies because we have the frozen fruit on hand which blends better in our opinion. If you only have fresh fruit, add anywhere from ½ cup, to a cup of ice, and blend. Now start stock piling and freezing fruit. Want more ideas?  Or don’t like a certain ingredient we’ve used? Make your own!

Here is a simple fool-proof method for making the ultimate nutrient packed smoothies:

Step 1: Base

Filtered water or unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk. Add ice for that smoothie consistency.

Step 2: Veggie

Spinach, kale, or any green leafy vegetable

Step 3: Fruit

Banana, pineapple, kiwi, and berries, are best, but the choice is yours! (Omit the ice if fruit is frozen)

Step 4: Protein

Whey protein powder, hemp protein, farm-fresh eggs

Step 5: Fat

Chia seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, avocado, peanut/almond butter, organic cream

Step 6: Power Food 

Greens powder, cacao powder, maca powder, spirulina/chlorella.

Combine any desired amount of the ingredients above into a blender and blend until smooth. Try new combinations that you think you may enjoy, you really can’t go wrong with these ingredients! For a thinner consistency just add more water.

Happy smoothie-ing!
