This is part 4 of my 5-part series, "Go to Meals". These are recipes I do on a weekly basis that I find easy, quick, cheap, and healthy.
Part 1: roasted veggies
Part 2: Easy fritatta
Part 3: Paleo Shepherd's pie
A smoothie made just from fruit doesn’t sound like much of a meal, but if you add other things, it can actually be a very easy and filling meal with minimal cleaning up and no cooking time that can be made any time of day!
Some smoothies can easily go from a “healthy” drink to one packed with over 50 grams of sugar. Yes, it is fruit sugar, but it still isn’t good to have so much in one go. It is much easier to eat too much fruit in one go if it is in a smoothie than if you were just eating fruit. Thats why my smothies use many other healthy ingreditnts along with some fruit.
This post isn't necessarily a step-by-step exact recipe. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever followed a smoothie recipe, but here are a list of ingredients I like to put into smoothies, and you can add them together in pretty much any combination, and they will go. I usually don’t add all of these at once. This is just a list of my arsenal I might choose from. Omit what you like, get creative, and adapt quantities depending on how many people are going to enjoy it!
