• Great ingredients?
    • Frozen fruit > fresh fruit
      • Why? Flash frozen fruit will retain its nutrients as opposed to a fruit that is fresh and sitting on the shelves at your local Kroger, Walmart, wherever. You don’t always know how long ago it was picked, how long it took to get there, or how long it has been sitting on the shelf. Frozen is your best bet. It’s also more economical.
    • We also like to get our frozen fruit at a wholesale club, such as BJ’s, Costco, or Sam’s Club. These places will typically have larger quantities for less dollars per serving.
  • Is weight loss your goal?
    • Berries > oranges, bananas, mangoes, etc
      • Why? Berries, such as blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and cranberries are much lower in sugar than fruits like oranges, bananas, and mangoes. If you are going for weight loss, initially when changing up your eating habits, I would recommend scaling back your sugar consumption.

We keep our smoothies fairly simple; usually using whatever is in possession at the moment before going out and getting more items. It is more convenient and economical to do so.

You are more than welcome to substitute out the almond/coconut milk (my fave blend) for almond or cashew milk.

Keep in mind: these are single-serving smoothies, and they are not very sweet. They are meant for nutritional benefit and weight loss, not for appeasing your sweet tooth.

Take the time to learn to enjoy an absence of a lot of sugar. I know, it’s addictive, but give it a shot. Try something different for a change. If you are motivated, I promise you’ll enjoy the results from scaling back your sugar way more than the temporary “fix” of taking it in.

  • If you are eating one of these as a post-workout meal, always opt for 2 eggs versus 1.
  • If you absolutely detest the idea of raw eggs (again, please try something new! Lots of people eat raw eggs; they are good for you and contain BCAAs (amino acids) that get cooked out when we cook them, and 1/20k has salmonella.) You can substitute 1 scoop of a vegan protein powder.

Side note, food, like eggs, that can grow bacteria .. are actually a lot better for you than foods that bacteria won’t touch .. like fast food .. that can sit out for days and not have anything growing on it. Why eat something that even bacteria won’t eat?
