With the Clean Program Cleanse in motion, we figured this is a good time to have a smoothie 101 lesson. Not that smoothie making is rocket science or anything, but they can easily be made pretty unhealthy. For example, if you are making a smoothie with say Dannon Light and Fit yogurt and Jif peanut butter, you just threw in an extra 12 grams of sugar; and that doesn’t even count the fruit. So you want to make sure your morning shake is as healthy as possible.
I also have to mention, a good blender is key! When I finally upgraded to a Vitamix, I literally died. Everything blended so finely that my smoothies were a milkshake-like consistency, no matter how many handfuls of kale I threw in there. Not saying you need to drop $500 on a blender, but something to note if your green smoothies are gritty. 🙂
So here is a step-by-step guide on how to make the healthiest smoothies!
