Tips for Healthy Smoothies

  1. Use more vegetables, less fruit. Fruit becomes processed sugar when it is blended.
  2. Include some avocado or banana to make your smoothie creamy.
  3. If you want a thick smoothie add less liquid. If you don’t want your smoothie so thick add more liquid.
  4. Add some superfood such as wheatgrass powder, spirulina powder, chia seeds for an extra health boast. 
  5. Add some cacao powder to make a healthy chocolate flavoured smoothie.
  6. Drink your smoothie as soon as it is made. It will taste best this way and you will get the most nutritional value out of it.
