So let’s get real, we’ve covered a ton of smoothie recipes that I really hope you have enjoyed but I have never really gone through the basics so you can create your very own recipe! (Which I really hope you do create your very own because then it’s a smoothie tailored for you).
First things first:
- You need to get yourself a good blender. Like I like those big fancy blenders but cleaning up is such a big hassle then you have to pour it into another cup and it sort of feels like the mess never ends. So I recommend one of those smaller personal ones, I have the Nutribullet Pro and it’s pretty freaking cool! The personal cup is a perfect portion and it’s hassle free tbh. So go ahead, and splurge a bit and treat yourself to a great blender.
- You choose the type of milk you like. If a recipe calls for 2% milk and you know that doesn’t sit well with you go ahead and substitute for your choice. There are lots of options to choose from: coconut milk, almond milk, soy milk, heck there’s even camel milk (which I haven’t tried but I heard good things). Make sure to use the type of milk that is right for you, like for me I know 2% milk is too heavy for me so I always substitute with soy milk because it feels a lot lighter and I skip on being bloated. SO BONUS!!!
Sweetness! Honestly, I don’t enjoy eating bananas but I do enjoy blending bananas with every smoothie I make. It adds thickness, and natural sweetness that is healthy for you. Oh and you can start using Medjool dates, I think they’re going to be the newest and sweetest trend!
Be CREATIVE! Make sure to always have different fruits lying around and if you craving a certain taste go ahead and mix things up a bit. I’m always mixing different fruits and playing with the different portions to make sure I get the desired taste I’m looking for.
LEANER CREAMER. Duuuh, you can’t have a delicious smoothie without Leaner Creamer. Made with coconut oil there is absolutely no better addition to your everyday smoothie! And it helps with weight loss if paired with a balanced breakfast and exercise so BONUS!!
