DSC_1563

Smoothies. there like a glass of creamy fruity dynamite.

when we first moved to AZ we had no blender. and i was like, ‘what do i do???’ i was smoothie-less for 2. whole. months.

anyway here i am to give you epic inspiration. you can make smoothies fruit-less, ice-less, you can make smoothies out of almost anything. comment bellow if you have a favorite combo!

ice: i don’t use ice. it makes it watered down and a lot of the time the ice is in chunks and isn’t pleasant to eat in a smoothie. i recommend using frozen fruit and cold liquid. use room temp bananas for creaminess.

Fruit:

banana                  blackberries               raspberries                     mango

strawberries        apple                            cherries                            peach

pineapple              grapes                          plum                                apricot

cucumber

vegetables:

zuchinni             sweet potato, steamed and frozen         celery

protein:

chia seeds        hemp hearts                peanut butter          almond butter

sunflower butter            chocolate protein powder

protein powder

 liquid: 

cranberry juice            almond milk         cashew milk           milk

lemonade                       rice milk

greens:

spinach               kale               arugula            romaine

beet greens

other:

coconut oil       Greek or vanilla yogurt            vanilla extract

pumpkin puree

 

Some of my favorite combinations:

Chocolate banana: 2 tablespoons chocolate protein powder, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 banana, 1/2 cup almond milk, 6 frozen strawberries.

Banana berry: 1 banana, 1/2 cup frozen raspberries, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup spinach

Spinach protein smoothie: 1 cup packed spinach, 1 banana, frozen,  2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 3 tablespoons peanut butter, 1/3 cup almond milk

Peach cherry: 1 cup frozen peach, 1/2 cup frozen cherries, 1/3 cup frozen berries, 1 banana, 3/4 cup almond milk

Cherry vanilla: 1 cup frozen cherries, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 scoops vanilla ice cream (more like a shake, but its delicious!)

  1. I love the list Eva!! So happy you are back! I don’t know how I missed it, and don’t know why it didn’t show up on my reader. The ice makes the smoothie taste bitter too for some reason. A lot of people are scared of the veggies in a smoothie but when you make it like you did, you don’t even taste the veggies. Thanks for sharing your smoothie recipes! And again good to see you back!!

      1. Ok so the ice making it bitter isn’t just me 🙂 I re-followed you. I don’t know how people get dropped off my following list. It happens all the time. I only follow about 20 blogs, so you would think wordpress would leave my list in tack. Again it is so good to have you back. You are always a breath of fresh air :):)
