How to Make the Healthiest Smoothies Ever

 

I'm always busy, so smoothies are a lifesaver! From a lot of trial and error, I now have a go-to list of ingredients that I simply mix and match to create yummy meals that keep me full for hours. So yes, it's completely possible to make a fueling, delicious meal without a recipe, and I'm about to tell you how. You just need to stock a handful of fiber-rich and protein-packed ingredients in your kitchen. And then follow a few important pointers, of course (read on!). If you feel more comfortable using a recipe, that's absolutely fine, too. But read the tips that follow anyway so you can get ideas for out-of-the-box, delicious ingredients to add to your smoothie. Espresso-flavored smoothie, anyone?

Amy's Recipe of the Week: Frozen Mochaccino

 

Here's a smoothie that tastes like dessert but isn't! Instead of heading to Starbucks for a Frappuccino with all the sugar, make this frozen coffee drink with no added sugar. This drink gets you all the sweetness with naturally good-for-you ingredients like banana and unsweetened cocoa powder. Recreating a favorite beverage at home is a great way to add in nutrients and skip any unnecessary added sweeteners. Cheers!
