How to Make the Perfect Smoothie in 3 Easy Steps

First things first, invest in a good quality blender. I love Hamilton Beach brand blenders or the Vitamix. Just think, the better the blender, the quicker and smoother your drink will be! After that, making a healthy and delicious smoothie really is as simple as 1, 2, 3…

 

  1. Add 1/2 cup of ice-cubes and 1 cup liquid to the blender – e.g. coconut water, nut milk, cows milk.
  2. Add 1/2 cup frozen fruit of choice – berries, banana and mango are my favourites.
  3. Add 1 serving of protein of choice – a high-quality, organic pea/whey/rice protein is a great place to start.

And blend!

 

Some other JS Health tips and tricks:

  • Add a handful of greens before you blend for an extra nutrient hit – try spinach or kale for starters.
  • Add 1 tbsp of fibre to keep you fuller for longer! Chia seeds or flaxseeds are my go-to, and so good for an Omega-3 boost.
  • If you want a slightly sweeter smoothie, add a couple of dates or 1 tsp of sweetener before you blend – stevia, raw honey or maple syrup for example.
  • To make a lower GI/sugar smoothie, replace the banana and sweetener with berries and stevia powder.
