We all know how great smoothies are for a meal replacement, snack, or post workout supplement. Steer clear of pre-made smoothies from the grocery store which can be high in sugar, and low in nutrients.
Here are some tips for making these at home more, well… smoothly
1. Upgrade your Yogurt.
Substitute low or fat free Greek yogurt instead of sweetened vanilla yogurt. Save sugar and calories, while adding protein. Just check the nutrition facts and ingredients to make sure that they didn’t sneak in any extras.
2. Try a stick blender.
As opposed to a conventional blender, you are mixing everything right in the cup you will be drinking out of. You’ll can have better portion control. (and you don’t have to wash that giant blender!)
We like Cuisinart Stick Blender, which you can find at Kohl’s for about $40.
3. Mix it up.
Buy lots of very ripe fresh fruit, eat what you can while it’s still good. But right before it’s too ripe, cut it in small pieces and freeze it on a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Take all your little frozen fruit bits and make different blends (tropical, berry, strawberry-banana, etc) and put in ziploc bags and keep frozen until you are ready to use them. This give you awesome fresh fruits, plus cutting them in smaller pieces makes blending a quick and easy.
