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.
