Homemade smoothies are an excellent way to add nutrition to your diet while preventing fruit from going to waste. Smoothies can make a healthy breakfast, provided they are filled with a good balance of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Unlike juices, smoothies don’t strip away the fiber from vegetables and fruits so they’re more filling. To make your smoothie, even more, filling consider adding protein powder, but be sure to choose varieties with little to no added sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Basic Smoothie Formula

  • 2 cups of fruit or vegetables
  • 1 cup liquid
  • 1/2 cup yogurt or other thickeners

Frozen fruits and vegetables give smoothies a creamy milkshake-like texture. The best way to freeze fruit is to wash it, slice it into pieces and lay it out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes and then transfer to a zip-top bag. If you don’t have time to freeze your fruit, you can add ice to your smoothie but it will be more watery.

The liquid in your smoothie can be any type of juice, milk, or water. Some options to try are no-sugar-added juices or milk, including whole, skim, or low-fat milk, coconut milk, rice milk, soy milk, cashew milk, almond milk, etc.

To thicken your smoothie you can add sweetened or unsweetened yogurt. Any variety of yogurt will work. (regular, Greek, coconut or soy) You could also add a banana or avocado.

Additional ingredients such as nuts, nut butter, hemp, honey, flax-seeds, coconut, oatmeal, dried fruits, chocolate chips, cookies, herbs, and spices can also be added.

Blend your smoothie in either a blender or a food processor. I currently use this Ninja blender. It does a pretty good job, but sometimes I have to stop and push the fruit down towards the blade. On my dream blender list is this Vitamix blender.
