Smoothie Operator

Posted on Updated on

As we all know, getting in shape before winter hits is a great idea. A helpful way to supplement all of your hard work is obviously by eating well. Smoothies are a great way to fuel up post work-out, or a great start to your day. Read on for some great recipes.

Making smoothies does not have to be an exact science. These amounts are not strict rules, it’s like cooking, feel free to improvise according to your own needs! However, you will want to prepare for your smoothie making, chopping and freezing the fruit you will need is how you get the correct consistency.

Health Nutt

  • 10 oz almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1.5 bananas
  • 3 leaves of kale (you won’t even taste it, I promise)

*Alteration: add a few scoops of cocoa for a chocolatey twist

Peach Pearadise

  • 5 oz non-fat yogurt
  • 5 oz cup cranberry juice
  • 6 peach slices
  • 6 pear slices
  • 1 tablespoon raspberries

Tropical Fusion

  • 10 oz coconut water or coconut milk (or both!)
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 cup mango
  • 1 heaping handful of spinach (if you want to get your greens too)

Banana Berry Bash

  • 10 oz non-fat yogurt
  • 3/4 of a banana
  • 1 tablespoon of blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon of raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter

If you want an added boost to any of these recipes, add some whey or hemp protein to any of these smoothies. If you do add protein, be sure to reduce the amount of your smoothie base (i.e almond milk, etc.) to 8 oz, because the protein greatly expands the amount.

You should feel free to experiment or alter any of these smoothies, and if you do, please comment with any other good ideas!

Have fun staying active, see you on the hill! (hopefully really soon)
