Smoothies are a great snack or breakfast… if you get the ingredients right! Beware of store bought smoothies though, as they may try to sell you on health factor, when it really falls short on nutrition value. That’s why I’ve been collecting a list of great healthy smoothies to try out at home, where you can trust where your ingredients are coming from. Here they are, with ingredients ranging from bananas to kale to chocolates!
This smoothie is my kind of smoothie… the kind where you only have a couple of ingredients, you mix it all up, and then it’s delicious and healthy! It calls for apples, banana, and coconut milk!
This smoothie by Gluten free on a shoe string is great if you want a smoothie and have a chocolate craving! It calls for almond milk, medjool dates, bananas, and some cocoa powder.
