Since smoothies are full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and protein — the options are endless. Mix it up with lots of variety so the smoothies don’t get boring (especially for the kiddos).
Most smoothies can be classified into one or two of the following categories — though there’s significant overlap between them:
- Fruit Smoothies – As the name implies, this kind of smoothie usually features one or more types of fruit blended with fruit juice, water, milk, or ice cream.
- Green Smoothies – Green smoothies pack leafy green vegetables and fruit blended with water, juice, or milk. They tend to be heavier in veggies than regular smoothies, though they often include a little fruit for sweetness.
- Protein Smoothies – Protein smoothies usually start with one fruit or vegetable and a liquid, as well as a major protein source like Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, silken tofu, or protein powder.
Below is a list of some of our smoothie-making tips:
- Add ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Add ice depending on temperature preference.
- Frozen bananas work best in smoothies. Peel, slice in half, and place in a large Ziploc bag in the freezer overnight.
- Add more spinach and kale to increase nutritional benefits.
