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!!
