Need to make the perfect smoothie? It’s easy! Follow these five simple steps for a powerhouse nutritional smoothie:
Add fruit: Choose at least 2 types of fruit- fresh or frozen. And make it green, adding vegetables such as kale, spinach and more!
Choose a base: Add 1-2 cups of liquid. The more juice your fruits and veggies produce, the less liquid you’ll need. Try coconut water, water or milk.
Thicken up: Thicken up your smoothie to get the right consistency and creaminess while making it more nutritious with things like oats, yogurt/kefir or just ice.
Flavor: Add some flavor with spices, herbs or sweeteners like honey, vanilla extract or cinnamon.
Power Boost: Take your smoothie up another level with some superfoods. Add two scoops of our VeganSmart, chia seeds and Goji Berries.
