I've starting eating more fruits and vegetables these past several months. And it just recently occurred to me that a blender would be convenient and help me with some of the vegetables.
So I bought one. (babys first blender)
I've been having fun experimenting making basic smoothies. When I say basic, I mean minimal ingredients, using mostly fruit and vegetables only. Nothing too fancy. I'm quite a poor college student.
So what do you recommend? Do you have any favorites?
I always always always add
You need ice. You cant just go full retard with a shitload of fruit.
Smoothies are a delicious way of adding things like honey, nuts and greek yogurt to a "meal" but you just slurp it all at once. Also look into beeswax and other memes
Oh for sure adding ice and some water most of the time. I'm thinking i'll pick up some almond milk.
I have a jar full of honey, what fruits or vegetables do you suggest go well with it?
every berry is good. Bananas are a staple.
My personal favorite taste is strawberry-banana-orange
every now and then acai-raspberry-blueberry or something like that is deicious too
>Frozen berries or fruit of your choice
>Flax seeds/Chia seeds/whatever the fuck you want
I have mocha flavoured whey and mine comes out tasting like a choc banana berry smoothie of god-cum.
Smoothies are the shit.
General smoothie tip: you can make your smoothie thicker by using frozen fruit. Adding ice will make your smoothie thinner.
My go to smoothie base is this:
Handfull of ice cubes
1 frozen banana
1 cup soy milk
Usually I add a scoop of chocolate whey. Other times I'll add other fruit for flavor. Strawberries or mangos if they are in season.
Bananas make a great smoothie base. Get a shit load of them at once, and once they're ripe, put them all in a plastic bag and stick that in the freezer. That shit will last for months. Also a frozen banana is super useful for smoothies. Adding one is guaranteed to thicken the smoothie, and the flavor isn't overpowering. You can think of it as a thickening agent.
