Pin It Now!
Remember when I shared with you that I was starting to make smoothies? I promised some recipes once I perfected them and those are coming. Before I share some of my favorite concoctions I thought I'd pass along a few tips I've learned.
Above is a visual "formula" for my smoothies. I've detailed each "layer" below. Basically, I mix and match what I have (or what is in season)to come up with the daily smoothie. I love this method because I can customize it by making it low-oxalate (which I've been trying to follow recently due to some recurring GI/pain issues).
I'm not a big sweet fan but if you want you can absolutely sweeten with honey or agave.
Let me know what yummy smoothies you make. Stay tuned for some of my favorite smoothie recipes.
Unsweetened flaked coconut
Dates (for sweetness)
“Watery” and/or “hard” Fruits/Veggies
Beets (raw or roasted)
Fresh ginger root (~tip of thumb sized)
Maca root powder
Dried Goji berries
Peaches (and other stone fruits)
Ice (if you like your smoothies cold)
