Transcript of Exploring The Anatomy of A Smoothie

Breaking Down The Anatomy of A Smoothie
Customizing Your Smoothie
Tips for Storage
Smoothies can be stored for up to 3-4 days in an air-tight container in the refrigerator

For smoothies containing fresh greens, I recommend consuming immediately or within 24 hours

Mason Jars make for easy, convenient storage of smoothies for on the go!
Why Smoothies?
Smoothies are a smart way to get in compact nutrition in a hydrating manner. They're perfect on the go and can be customized to your exact liking.
Types of Smoothies
Choose a Base
Milk or Milk Alternative
Coconut Water or Tea
Fruit Juice

Pair Your Fruit
(or Veggies!)
"Dessert" Smoothies
Dessert smoothies are great remedies for a sweet tooth. Dessert smoothies can imitate flavors of your favorite treats while packing in a deceptive amount of nutrients such as protein from peanut butter and antioxidants from chocolate.
Spring Smoothies!
Green Smoothies
A green smoothie is a smoothie that is blended with fresh leafy green vegetables, such as collard greens, kale, rainbow or Swiss chard or spinach. Some people also use fresh green herbs such as mint or parsley in their green smoothies.
Cost Saving Tips
Fresh vs. Frozen: It depends on what's in season! Frozen fruit works perfect during the winter months when fresh fruit tends to be more expensive

Stock up on fruit when it's in season and freeze for later

Have leafy greens that are about to go bad? Puree with a little bit of milk or water and freeze into ice cubes for use in a smoothie later!
Equipment Needs
Blender or Food Processor
Mason Jar or Juice Glass
Smoothie recipes serve as great guidelines, but feel free to use your imagination and customize them to your liking!
Common smoothie additives to BOOST nutrition:
Health Benefits
