Green, Gold, & Berry Smoothies
-How to do the Smoodie (AKA Smoothie)-
These three smoothies are flooded with nutrition and easy to digest. That combo allows your body to absorb maximum nutrition so it can do what it is created to do. Make at least one a day! And if you are new to eating healthy, smoothies are a great place to start.
This smoothie is our breakfast every morning! It is filled with dense greens that get your body ready for the day. Make one for the whole family! Don’t be scared of the green!
2 big handfuls of spinach
1 Handful of kale
1 Pear or Green Apple
2 Celery Sticks
Frozen Mango or Pineapple chunks
-Liquid Gold Smoothie-
This smoothie is tropical, delicious, and so good for you. It has BEE POLLEN in it! Bee pollen is like the King of health food! It has been said that you can live off of bee pollen and water alone. It has everything in it! If your feeling tired in the afternoons, this is the smoothie to start blendin’.
Half a Mango (Frozen or Fresh… depending on the season)
1 Tbs of Bee Pollen
Coconut milk cubes (I froze coconut milk in cubes to make the smoothie icy!)
This smoothie is so refreshing and FULL of antioxidants. Every single ingredient has antioxidants in it. Filling your body with antioxidants from fruits and vegetables gets your body healthy on a cellular level. Having healthy cells makes everything else work properly!
Handful of Strawberries
Handful of Blueberries
1 Tbs of Chia Seed
Water, coconut water, or non-dairy milk
-TIPS ON YOUR SMOOTHIE MAKING SKILLS-
1) ALWAYS use really ripe bananas.
The health benefits increase and they are so much sweeter! (If they get to the point where the fruit flies are coming, just freeze them… but make sure you peel them first!)
2) Don’t fret if you don’t have all of the ingredients.
A lot of times smoothie making is flying by the seat of your pants.
3) Any blender will blend, but the Vitamix takes it to a whole new level!
About a year ago we got a Vitamix. Before that I was using the blender that my parents got as a wedding gift. My point is… don’t let a bad blender stop you from making smoothies… but I am really thankful for my Vitamix!

"But blessed is the one who trust in the lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out it roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."
