Smoothies are an easy and delicious way to pack in a lot of nutrition at once. Whether it’s a green detox smoothie, a seasonal fruit smoothie, or a very simple three-ingredient smoothie, the key is to make sure that you have a combination of fruits, vegetables, and protein so it’s well-balanced AND tasty.
Feel free to have fun with the liquid you add. Water is great, but so is regular milk or non-dairy milks. Just don’t bother with recipes that call for added sugar, and be wary of juices, which are often high in sugar, and protein powders, some of which have been found to have high levels of toxins like arsenic, cadmium, and lead.
