Smoothies are a great way to nourish your body while trying to eat healthy.

These super simple drinks pack a powerful nutritional punch that can help boost your immune system and aid in digestion!

Drinking a smoothie is a great way to provide the essential nutrients that your body needs. Try one for breakfast, before a workout as an energy boost, or when you are hungry at night and want to raid the snack cupboard!

Making a smoothie is easier than you'd think. All you need is a blender and fresh or frozen healthy ingredients. Here are a few simple smoothie recipes to get you going:

Tips for "smooth" smoothie making!

  • If you don't have a lot of time in the mornings, prep your ingredients the night before
  • Frozen fruit will keep your smoothie cold, instead of adding ice which will water down the recipe
  • Add your liquids to the blender first, for better mixing results
  • Dairy-based smoothies are best for meal replacement
  • Adding a few tablespoons of cooked, plain oatmeal, can make your smoothie creamier and more filling

Instead of grabbing a coffee in the morning, why not pick up a healthy smoothie instead? Residents of 66 Isabella have some great options nearby!
