Smoothies are the most popular drink these days and the sky is the limit when it comes to making them your own. Here are few guidelines to making the perfect one.

2 cups of leafy greens. With a mild taset most people go to spinach for their smoothies which is great but try rotating your greens. These greens have different vitamins and minerals.

Try: Kale, Bok Choy, Collards, Green Chard, Rainbow Chard and Dandelion.

2 cups liquid base. Different liquids can change the consitancy of your smoothy and some are more filling than others. Consider making your own liquids such as our own almond milk or this easy recipe. 1. soak your nuts or seeds in water for 8 hours and rinse well. 2. Blend on high, 1 cup raw almonds or hemp seed with 3 cups of and 3 fresh dates to sweeten. If your blender doesn’t blend to a consistancy you want use cheese cloth to squeeze the liquid out.

3 cups fresh or frozen fruit. Using frozen fruit will give your smoothies a delicious milk shake-like consistancy. If you like just bananas then just use bananas but may we also suggest berries, pineapple, apple, mango and peach.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
