You have tried your first smoothie and you obviously love it. You have tasted it's refreshing flavours and have felt it's quench, and nutrition What's next?
I am so glad you asked, here is where is gets fun.
1) Either pick up some orange juice, freshly squeezed juice or invest in some organic fruit juice from the grocery store or farmer's market. A good brand is Kiju or Ceres, they are usually on sale so get a couple for backup. Mango is great but feel free to experiment.
2) Spinach is a versatile green to use, but you can switch it out for parsley or kale. These aren't the only option, but a few good go-to ingredients. Click here for Green Substitutes
3) Bananas are fantastic to add to any smoothie due to the sweetness and texture.
Tip: Peel a bunch and keep them in the freezer in a ziplock bag.
4) I always use carrots...because why not.
5) Time to get creative. Interchange between fruits. You can do this with strawberries, blueberries, peaches, mango, pineapple etc.
Tip 1: You can either buy frozen fruit or you can buy fruit like strawberries, wash and cut the tops off to freeze.
Tip 2: If you are freezing a fruit that you had to peel and cut with a lot of juice, such as mango or peach, store them in smaller portions because they are difficult to separate when frozen.
There are so many options with a lot of recipes to try from books, magazines and online.
But don't worry you have plenty of time to try each one, find your favourites and feel the healthy benefits!
