4 Unexpected Ways to Enjoy a Smoothie
Easy tips to step up your smoothie game
you made plans to eat healthier in the New Year? In that case, there’s probably
no way around smoothies, which are one of the easiest and fastest ways to eat a
lot of fruits and vegetables at once that provide you with tons of vitamins and
fiber. Plus, making them at home is so easy and cheaper than store-bought.
If you’re not sure how to get started, it’s time to get acquainted with the cookbook “Green Kitchen Smoothies” by David Frankiel und Luise Vindahl, who have been writing their blog “Green Kitchen Stories” for many successful years.
Inside, they share a plethora of recipes and helpful tips for integrating smoothies into your everyday life. Spoiler: Frozen fruits, vegetables, and nut milks loom large. You’ll also learn that you actually don’t always have to drink a smoothie.
So here are 4 tasty and unexpected ideas for your next smoothie, inspired by the book!
1. AS A BREAKFAST BOWL
Adding nut butter, flaxseed, chia seeds, tofu, or oatmeal to your smoothie will result in a thicker, creamier texture. Add it to a bowl and top with fruits, nuts, and seeds of choice. Now you have a healthy, energizing breakfast, prepared in no time.
2. AS A PROPER BREAKFAST
Can’t do breakfast without cereal? Combine with yogurt and your favorite smoothie, by layering it in a jar. See how easily you can impress yourself, not only in terms of taste but also look!
3. AS A DELIGHTFUL DESSERT
Desserts don’t always have to be sugary and full of calories. This pudding is sweetened naturally by adding mango purée on top. But, of course you can easily switch out this fruit layer with your smoothie of choice.
4. AS REFRESHING POPSICLES
Although it’s not summer right now, it’s totally valid to eat ice cream (and hey, summer will be here in no time!). Since you can easily freeze smoothies, they are perfect to turn into popsicles.
