SMOOTHIE ON

HOW IS YOUR SMOOTHIE GAME? The recommended serving for fruit and vegetable is 6-9 servings per day. Do you need more veggies and fruit in your life?

Try adding smoothies to your diet!

A smoothie is a great way to get your veggies in plus they make a great pre-workout, post-workout, breakfast or a snack!

Here are some Tips in how to make a BALANCED SMOOTHIE

You can choose one from each category!

Fruit (1/2 CUP)- Strawberries, Blueberries, Mango, Blackberries

Veggies (1/4 – 1/2 CUP)- Cucumber, Spinach, Carrots, Zucchini, Beets

Protein (1-2 scoops) – A protein Chocolate or Vanilla powder that works for you!

Healthy Fats (1 TBS) – Chia Seed, Flax Seed, Coconut Oil, Peanut Butter, Almond Butter

Liquid (1/2 CUP) – Almond Milk, Cashew Milk, Coconut Milk

Optional

Need Creaminess?

Creaminess – 1/2 of a frozen Banana, 1/2 avocado

For Nature Sweetness & Creaminess – Banana has that delicious creaminess, as well as energy, fiber, and essential nutrients without all of the refined sugar and saturated fat.

Sweetness – Dates, Maple Syrup, Honey

* If there is fruit in your smoothie, you may not need to add any more sweetness.

* Avoid sugary yogurts or syrups (maple & honey is fine).

Fruit to Protein Ratio

Smoothies are both macro balanced and flavor balanced, so youโ€™re getting all the nutrients and deliciousness in one hit.

Lay Low on healthy high-calorie foods โ€“ we all love almond/PB butter and chia seeds for protein, healthy fats and some amino acids, but if half smoothie is peanut butter, that is not balanced.
