Super Smoothies!

Super Smoothies

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)

  • Water
  • 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)
  • Cucumber
  • Power green supplement, I always recommend Maximum Vibrance.

STEP 4: Pick a fruit (1-2 cupped handfuls)

  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Mango
  • Bananas
  • Cherries

**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)

  • Walnuts
  • Flax seeds (*milled will give you soluble fiber)
  • Chia seeds
  • Almonds
  • 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

EXAMPLE:

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
