Every day that passes, my love of healthy smoothies grows a little bit stronger. All it took to get me to start eating a healthy breakfast was a blender that would crush ice and puree frozen fruit. Since my new blender arrived I’ve discovered so many flavor combinations that I otherwise would have thought didn’t belong together.
I’ve also been scouring the internet to find new and delicious flavor combinations for smoothies and found many that would make a healthy breakfast.
The thing that really surprises me most about some of these recipes is the creative ways you can hide ingredients. For extra protein, many smoothie recipes include protein powders and nuts. For extra fiber, vegetables hidden with the sweet fruit include: cabbage, spinach, kale and other leafy greens you might otherwise find in a salad but instead it’s blended perfectly smooth and easy to digest. I’ve even seen a few with extra sweeteners like natural maple syrup and honey.
For anyone like me who is trying to find ways to eat healthier in 2014, smoothies are definitely the way to go. They’re the perfect breakfast (or afternoon snack) that never gets boring or bland because of the thousands of flavor combination. I love being able to make one small change like using almond milk instead of orange juice to turn a tart smoothie into a creamy smoothie.
I’d love to hear from you … what unique flavor combinations do you make into smoothies?
