I have put together here some of my favorite smoothies for you. The internet is full of ideas. But yet I feel Like the more it is put in our face the more likely we are to get a smoothy rage! hahaha! Anyway That is how I am and I am Hoping this will inspire you today to make a smoothy of any kind. Enjoy these 4 types of smoothies ideas I picked for you.
Simple, because they taste awesome! But on top of this and lucky for us, they are super healthy. Even though I am a huge advocate of juicing in the morning, there are other priorities and health benefits you will have more of in a Smoothy! Smoothies are made with whole fruits and veggies so you will have all the fiber these fruits and veggies offer all swirled into the goodness of your favorite smoothy. Fibers are an important part of a healthy diet because they smooth out your digestion and your bowel movement. They will also make you feel fuller for longer. It is also associated with improvement of your cholesterol and blood sugar levels and can assist in preventing some diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and bowel cancer.
4 types of smoothies ideas for deferent types of people!
1. Traditional Smoothy
Traditional smoothies: Blend it and drink it! Ingredients: anything you love! Bananas help to make it creamier but you really can put any fruits or veggies you love. And don’t forget to add flax seeds, chia seeds for the gut health and nut butter or nut powder to help keep you full longer.
2. Smoothy Bowl
Smoothy Bowls: The new trend! blend your smoothy with frozen bananas and less water or plant milk and you smoothy will be thicker. Then garnish with fruits, cereals, nuts, coconut flakes, dry cranberries or goji berries. With a smoothy bowl, you will feel like you are having a meal, therefore, you will feel fuller and will not have the feeling that you have skipped a meal.
3. Frozen Smoothy
Frozen Smoothy: for a cool and healthy snack during a hot summer afternoon. The kids will love it! It is super easy. Just freeze your favorite smoothy in a freezer friendly container and Voilà!
4. Smoothy Parfaits
The Smoothy Parfait: To make as a healthy dessert alternative or just for a delicious snack. I know I said you can replace a dessert but don’t you worry, with all the possibilities on how you can present this, your guests will be amazed and think you have spent an hour making this!
The easiest way to do this is to superpose 3 to 4 ingredients starting with the dry ingredient in the bottom. You can also top with dry ingredients but just make sure you start with one in the bottom of your jar. other ideas of things you could add could be chia pudding. You could add oats, cereals, fruits eatable flowers. And of course, don’t forget your smoothy! I would suggest a fruit smoothy for this one. If you are making this for a dessert you can make your wet base in advance and reserve them in the fridge and make your parfait at the time of dessert.
In conclusion, keep in mind that Smoothy is not necessarily “better” than juicing. It is just another way of getting crazy good for you nutrients. Smoothy is a great way to get your fiber in. I am also a huge advocate of juicing and If you want to learn more about juicing, check out my latest celery juice detox HERE.
