I love a good smoothie at any time of the day! Using frozen fruit makes it easy, and you won't have to add additional ice to keep it cold. Any milk works, but I like the neutral taste of oat milk. Here are a few more smoothie tips:
- Spinach is very mild tasting and is the perfect addition to any smoothie. Vegetable-haters won't even know it's in there! For the mildest tasting kale, look for Lacinato (aka Tuscan).
- Whenever possible, use organic ingredients. Conventionally grown produce like strawberries, apples, and spinach can be heavily sprayed with pesticides.
- Smoothie recipes are approximations. Add more liquid if it's not blending well, and feel free to throw in a spoonful of flax seeds, or any other healthy additions to amp up the nutrition.
- A freshly made smoothie tastes the best, but you can store it for up to 24 hours. Pour your smoothie into a glass container with a tightly fitting lid (like a mason jar). Pick a size you can fill to the rim to prevent air from being trapped in the jar and oxidizing the ingredients.
