Many people have mocked the Smoothie Movement as being unhealthy, lame to do, and they don’t taste good either. However, these same people have never had a REAL smoothie with fresh organic fruits, vegetables and greens.
You see, if you’re buying a smoothie at a restaurant, you’re basically buying chemicals in a cup. Dyes, High Fructose Corn Syrup, added sugars, “natural” flavorings, preservatives and many other chemicals that you can’t even pronounce. Even the “Healthy” smoothie restaurants have some hidden secrets about their ingredients. So the best solution is, make your own smoothies at home.
I drink smoothies every single morning. I use fresh fruit when it’s in season, and I mix it with frozen fruits as well. I also add chia seeds, flax seeds, protein powder, low glycemic meal replacement powders and stevia if needed to sweeten it up a bit.
I always recommend to only use fruits and fresh, organic milk or water when beginning with smoothies.
However, if you’re ready to take your smoothie making to the next level then I definitely suggest making Green Smoothies. Start by adding organic kale, spinach, collard greens, parsley or swiss chard. You can also add romaine lettuce, bok choy, mustard greens, turnip greens, and green/red leaf lettuce.
One of the best investments I’ve ever made was buying the NutriBullet. This thing is fast, easy to use and easy to clean up. It’s not as bulky as a larger blender and has fewer parts to clean. It’s the perfect size to make a large enough smoothie for anybody. I would definitely recommend looking into this purchase. You can buy it online for a very reasonable price.
Here’s the link that I used to purchase my own NutriBullet…
Before I purchased the NutriBullet, I only made smoothies 3-5 times a week because it was so inconvenient. (I have one of those high end blenders but the clean up was ridiculous.)
But now I drink up to 2-4 smoothies a DAY! Every single day of the week! Once you figure out how easy it can be, and how healthy it is for you, then it almost becomes an addiction. A healthy addiction!
Your digestion will be unbelievable! Your skin will clear up… You’ll have less headaches because you’re body is functioning better…

So, are smoothies stupid?
Absolutely not! You can get a tremendous amount of nutrition from each smoothie and you’ll even find that your digestion will improve, and you’ll lose weight.
