I had been wanting a Vita mix blender for eons and finally got one last Christmas. I was so excited and once I started using it I literally haven’t stopped. It’s an easy way to pack nutrition, fibre and all into a drink. It all depends on what I have in the fridge and freezer as to what I add in my morning drink. The options are endless!! 🙂
I start with coconut water but read your labels. I bought a LOT of cans only to find out they are coconut juice (added sugar) and not just coconut water 😦 Oh well I didn’t want to truck back all the cans so I have been slowly going through them all. Sigh If I find its too sweet I will just add our filtered water to take some of the sweetness down. 🙂
So all measurements are approximate as it depends on what I have and how much I’m making.
For one serving:
250 ml of coconut water
1 Tblsp each of hemp seeds, chia seeds and flax seeds
2″ chunk of cucumber
1/2 cup of frozen fruit (mango, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries)
1/2 scoop of protein powder (omit if making for small children, as its too hard on the kidneys)
1/2 carrot, peeled and chopped
one small serving of yogourt
1 large handful of spinach
Blend and enjoy! Keeps well in the fridge overnight.
Your options are endless! I also use Avocado and kale if I have it in the fridge or frozen in the freezer.
It’s made breakfast quick and nutritious in the morning or a mid morning snack if I’ve actually made breakfast.
Give it a try and I’m sure you will become a smoothie convert as I have!!
