Hello and welcome to Sunday’s post. I hope you’re all doing well.
I love smoothies. I find it’s the best (and sneakiest) way to get a few servings of veggies into a quick snack.
I’m a creature of habit and once I find something I like, I generally stick to it until I’m horribly sick of it- smoothies are no exception. There are two different ones I’m currently loving, and have been making for about a year. Forewarning: these do contain tons of fruit sugar but as long as you’re not drinking them excessively during the day, you should be fine.
Let’s get started.
- Apple Juice
- Frozen Mango
- Frozen Pineapple
- Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
I generally take two handfuls each of the green vegetables, roughly 1/2 cup of each frozen fruit, and one small-medium sized banana. I’ll usually use a 2:1 ratio of water to apple juice. And don’t underestimate the lemon juice- it seriously makes the smoothie.
PB & J
- Peanut or Almond Butter (you can use PB2 as well if you prefer)
- Frozen Strawberries, Raspberries or both
- Apple Juice
- Coconut Milk. Not the stuff in the can! The drinkable kind that’s usually by the almond milk in the refrigerated section. I’ll attach a picture below.
This smoothie is like dessert and I love it. I’ll usually do about 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter or PB2, 1-2 cups of frozen strawberries (about 6-7 large ones), and a small-medium sized banana. Same concept with the liquids in the previous smoothie- 2:1 ration of coconut milk to apple juice.
That’s it! I hope you guys enjoy these and feel free to adjust the ratios of everything according to your flavor preference. Let me know if you try them out! Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you for my next post.
