The Delicious Smoothie

So, what is a smoothie? In Wikipedia: A smoothie (occasionally spelled smoothie or smooth) is a thick, cold beverage made from puree raw fruit (and sometimes vegetable) blended with ice-cream or frozen yogurt along with other ingredients such as water, crushed ice, fruit juice, sweeteners, (e.g. honey, sugar, Styria, syrup) dairy products ( e,g. milk, yogurt or cottage cheese, whey powder) plant milk, nuts, nut butter, seeds, tea, chocolate, herbal supplements or nutritional supplements.

A smoothie containing dairy products is similar to a vegetable milkshake, though the latter typically has less fruit and often has ice-cream or frozen yogurt.

As you can tell by the definition, you sure are able to do a lot about the ingredients you choose to put in your smoothie. But not all ingredients blend well together. Acid fruits like grapefruit and other citrus pineapples, pomegranates, sour apples, plums, strawberries, and tomatoes don’t blend well with sweet fruits such as grapes, prunes and dates. Ingredients can very just as much as the purpose is of the smoothie you’ve chosen to make. You can make them for a protein energy boost, weight loss, health, breakfast drink or just refreshment.

Here are some delicious quick and easy recipes that you and your family can enjoy:

Hello! My name is Devi and I created this blog to express what I believe is the new way we are going to heal ourselves and that is through holistic living! I am currently studying to be a holistic nutritionist, as well as a reiki master. I am into chakra healing and crystal healing. I think we can gain back access to our intuition through the food we eat and by unblocking our chakras. This blog will be about me sharing how to do just that! I believe when connected with our intuition, we can live our true authentic selves to the fullest! I've worked hard to connect with my intuition and it has lead me to creating this blog to hopefully help you do the same! You can find that blog at www.devi-life.ca
