I found this really helpful photo/diagram of how to make a perfect weight loss smoothie. Jenny Sugar has done a brilliant job here! It’ll allow me to create any smoothie I like, but keep it healthy, nutritious and tasty, without worrying about getting it wrong!
This has already been extremely popular – I trust you’ll find it as useful too? Check out the recipe below and let me know how you like it…
Here’s Jenny’s guidelines…(photo/diagram and recipe follow…
Greens (1 to 2 cups): Spinach and kale may turn your smoothie green, but once they’re mixed with fruit, you’ll hardly be able to taste them.
Fruit (1 to 2 cups): Frozen works best here, but if you use fresh, just add some ice cubes to give it a frosty consistency. Mix it up with two to four kinds of fruit such as banana, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, mango, peach, pineapple, pear, cherries, apple, grapes, papaya, oranges, melon, or kiwi.
Thickener (1/4 to 1/2 cup): For the perfectly creamy texture and for added protein and fiber, mix in some Greek yogurt or cottage cheese (3 ounces), nut butter (one tablespoon) or nuts (1/8 cup almonds, walnuts, or cashews), avocado (1/4 fruit), cannellini beans (1/4 cup), baked sweet potato (1/4 cup), oats (1/4 cup), or soft tofu (1/2 cup).
Liquid (1 to 2 cups): Water or some type of milk (cow, soy, almond, or rice) is always a winner
