Smoothies are a great way to hide the pesky fruits and vegetables behind wonderful flavors and a nice cold drink for those hot and humid days. These shakes also give you another way to get one or two extra meals in your day if/when you have trouble eating throughout the day. Remember this is a great way to get carbs, disguise protein, and get essential fatty acids by blending up one smoothie.
STEP 1: Pick a liquid (6-12oz)
- Almond Milk(unsweetened)
- Hemp Milk(unsweetened)
- Coconut Water
** Remember the less liquid you put into the smoothie the thicker it will be and more liquid means a more runny smoothie.
STEP2: Add Protein (1-2 scoops)
- SFH PURE- vanilla
STEP 3: Pick a veggie (1-3 handfuls)
- Dark Leafy greens: Spinach
- Pumpkin/ sweet potato (depending on timing around workout)
- Power green supplement, I always recommend Maximum Vibrance.
STEP 4: Pick a fruit (1-2 cupped handfuls)
**Frozen fruit will thicken up your shake and will provide that JAMBA JUICE consistency, whereas fresh fruit will give you a fresher taste, but will be more watery.
STEP 5: Pick a healthy fat (1-2 thumbs)
- Flax seeds (*milled will give you soluble fiber)
- Chia seeds
- Nut Butters *no sugars added
** Make sure that you are not buying roasted nuts for this, as the fat content inside of the nuts has been changed. Only use unsalted/unroasted nuts.
*Mill flax right before use, not weeks in advance.
STEP 6: Pick a topper (Depending on goals)
- Oats for extra carbs
- Ice to cool the fruits down
STEP 1: Coconut water
STEP 2: 2 scoops of SFH Pure whey- Vanilla
STEP 3: 3 handfuls of Spinach
STEP 4: 1 banana, 2 cupped handfuls of froze strawberries
STEP 5: 1 thumb of milled flax seeds, 1 thumb Chia seeds
STEP 6: 1 palm of oats for extra calories and carb before a workout
