The right ratio of green vegetables to fruits is a must for a balance of sweetness from fruit and gaining all of the nutritional benefits from your greens. A good rule of thumb is: 1 cup of greens, 1 cup of liquid and 1 cup of fruit.
Blenders are not created equal! Opt for a blender with a powerful motor that is easy to clean.
Use healthy liquids as the base of your smoothies. A few great options: nut milks, oat milk, water or coconut milk.
Add a scoop of protein powder, spices (cinnamon, ginger, etc.) or superfoods (like ashwagandha, maca powder, hemp hearts, etc) for an additional powerhouse boost.
Healthy fats, like those from nuts, seeds, avocado or even coconut oil, help your body absorb more nutrients.
When blending, add your greens and liquid first and blend to avoid chunks of greens. Add fruit last and blend a second time.
Add cut fruit and vegetables into a reusable bag (Stasher bags are my favorite) and freeze. When ready to make, add to the blender with your liquid of choice.
