Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are a great way to pack in fruits, veggies, antioxidants and fiber galore. The option to add protein powder is included in each recipe in case you eat a smoothie without eggs and need protein. I can recommend quality brands of protein powder. My favorite brand is from a professional supplement company, and is naturally sweetened with a fruit extract. Please, please avoid artificial sweeteners! They poison and confuse your body. Let's talk in person about choices that are right for you, so you can drink up in good health!


Berry Smoothie

20 grams protein powder 

2 tablespoons of any: flax, chia or hemp seeds

1 cup of fresh or frozen berries 

1 huge handful of fresh spinach or 1 cup frozen spinach

1/2 avocado for creaminess

1/2 cucumber, peeled (optional)

2 oz no-sugar added, unsweetened, organic cranberry juice (Knudsen’s and Lakewood are good brands)

About 4-6 ounces water to combine

Optional: skip the cucumber and water and use nut milk

Measure out your frozen items in advance and let thaw in a container OR make your smoothie with warm water so it’s a pleasant temperature for drinking.
