I love to consume my healthy smoothies with a spoon. I make them thick enough to pour into bowl so that I can top them with granola. To me this is paradise, the very best way to have a bowl of granola and a healthy smoothie all in one.

You may think that there’s no genuine technique to making a smoothie that tastes like pudding. Well I beg to differ. To make a REALLY smooth and constant smoothie mix, it takes some practice or just understanding what to combine together. You need to make use of the right components in perfect amounts – to get that creamy consistency, texture and flavor. You can utilize basically frozen fruit to make it thicker or less thick. Oh and obviously you need a great mixer, that can make or break the offer alone!

I’ve certainly made and had bad smoothie mixes in the past. There’s absolutely nothing even worse than a watered down healthy smoothie or one that just doesn’t have that mouth feel that you hunger for even when you’ve actually completed your healthy smoothie. That’s exactly what occurs to me, I always want more even when it’s all gone. I truly can’t get enough of smoothies! They provide me energy, fill me up and make me so delighted! I get thrilled each time I make a new one, honest!

I’ve been making healthy smoothies for many years now – to the point where I’ve one essentially everyday for morning meal. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this, as I alter things up daily. I utilize different ingredients from a selection of fresh fruits (mango, papaya, banana, blueberries, strawberries, peaches), along with either hemp milk, rice milk or almond milk, a handful of fresh greens from my garden like kale or green spinach and naturally I then add a scoop of my outright favored raw vegan protein powder – Sun Warrior – and afterwards I include all kinds of incredibly meals like goji berries, cacao nibs, bee pollen, maca, coconut oil, raw honey – you name it. Then obviously I top it with a set of home -sprouted raw granola and often some blueberries (these ones are from my yard).

There actually is no better method to begin your day!
