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)

Cranberry juice, Orange juice

Apples, Pears, limes, lemons

Cucumbers and/or beets, avocados

Fresh mint, parsley or any herb you enjoy

Cupboard items:

Tips:

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.
