Here are some of the TOP items we keep in the house to create success and easy to prep smoothie items:
Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, Strawberries
Ground Flax seeds
Spinach or any greens you haven’t had a chance to eat – store in a freezer bag or Tupperware
Any ripe bananas -peel first and store in freezer bag
Spinach (freeze if need be) or Kale -baby kale is easier to use for smoothies
Grated carrots for quick grab and go
Cauliflower (you can even get it already chopped at the store, can be kept in the freezer)
Almond, soy or regular milk (choice what works for you)
Yogurt (NOT no-fat or low-fat… if they take out the fat they replace it with chemicals!)
Cranberry juice, Orange juice
Apples, Pears, limes, lemons
Cucumbers and/or beets, avocados
Fresh mint, parsley or any herb you enjoy
Pure Maple syrup (Only if needed ie: kids like it in their smoothies when they are starting out – don’t go overboard!)
Fresh ginger root (keep in a dark cool place) or turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg or any spice you like
Coconut oil or avocado oil (this is an optional protein source)
Organic/ local honey
Therapeutic grade essential oils
Nutrilite plant based protein powder OR one that you have that has NO sugars added and you can recognize the ingredients
XS Energy Smoothie Charge – XS™ Smoothie Charge powder gives your smoothies a natural caffeine boost with zero calories. Made with 100 mg of caffeine and three brilliant greens – Chlorella, Ginseng, and Green Tea Extract.
Remember that your “base” will set the tone of your smoothie. If you use something heavy such as milk or yogurt then it will work as a meal replacement, if you go lighter with water or light juice then if can be used as a great and nutritious snack.
