As some of my friends know, I enjoy smoothies, often in the morning! I use a
nutra-bullet, but other products work well. These products pulverize the
ingredients, and the claim is that more nutrients can be absorbed by the body. I
like it because I can add ingredients that may not fit easily into a simple
daily meal like turmeric root, acai berries, or beets. When I was starting to
eat more vegan, I found I could add all kinds of ingredients that I may not like
as much, and then add natural unprocessed(maybe
frozen) sweetness from berries, mangos, and other fruits. I started also adding
local unheated honey. If you don't want to use honey, see Vegan
Honey Alternatives (yourdailyvegan.com). Over time, I have decreased the
amount of sweetness needed to satisfy my taste buds. A healthy YUM comes to my
note, I'm not a nutritionist, so do your own research. What I put in has been
from what I researched, but how much of each ingredient is just what I choose to
Choose local grown, fresh, organic when possible. Some foods are more
important to buy organic because of the pesticides used. Frozen can also be
a good choice if fresh is not available.
I vary what I put in. There are those doctors that say, in essence, that
you want variety in your diet.
Nuts could be added, but I eat them separate. Same goes for other foods
If you are a new to smoothies with ingredients like greens, consider
starting with more sweeteners (like the berries), or add other sweeteners
like maple syrup. Add whatever it takes to make your smoothie taste great.
Over time, you will find you can cut back on the sweeteners.
Some say the sprouts have more nutrition, or other benefits.
Turmeric Root & Pepper
You want the root, not the powder.
I buy frozen unsweetened.
Shelled Pumpkin Seeds
Whole Flax Seeds
Whole works in blender, and claim is that whole keeps it's nutritional
value longer than ground.
Similar to Flax in benefits.
I buy Trader Joes wild blueberries. Some claim the wild blueberries are
even better than regular berries.
Great for sweetness.
I just added this page as a starting point. I do usually have my smoothes in
the morning as it gives me lots of great energy. Before my smoothies, I may also
have chopped garlic, and some form of fermented food like Kimchi or sauerkraut.
