Smoothies! Everyone Loves Smoothies!


There is an endless amount of delicious types of smoothies that can be created and if your like me you never make the same one twice, if when trying! Here are some recent yummy smoothie I have come across. Enjoy!

Strawberry Banana Pineapple Smoothie (vegan, GF) - No Added Sugar


YIELD: about 20 ounces, serves 2
 
PREP TIME: 2 minutes
 
COOK TIME: 0 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 2 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

8 ounces strawberries (about 2 cups, I used whole, frozen berries)
2 medium ripe bananas, peeled (previously frozen into chunks is ideal)
about 1 cup pineapple juice, or as necessary (substitute with orange juice or your favorite juice medley)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. To the canister of a blender, add the strawberries, bananas, and about 1/2 cup juice. Add enough juice only as necessary to get blender moving and until desired smoothie consistency is reached.
  2. Blend on high power until smooth and creamy. The longer you blend, the fluffier the mixture tends to become due to the bananas.
  3. Pour mixture into 2 glasses and serve immediately. Extra portion will keep airtight in the freezer for up to 1 month (cover a freezer-safe glass with plasticwrap or place inside a ziplock to prevent freezer smells). Allow to come up to room temp for about 30 minutes before serving.

Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
