Healthy Smoothies

Are you making healthy smoothies yet for yourself or family?  If  you have not hopped on the “smoothie craze” then you must be living under a rock!  – just saying.   But no fear, it’s 2015 and we have a sunny new year ahead of us brimming with possibilities.  How about making this the year you try your hand at a fast, super healthy, scrumptious meal-in-a-glass otherwise called, a smoothie!

If you have made smoothies before stick with me anyway because I have a great free offer for you too that I think you will enjoy!

healthy smoothiesSome benefits of making smoothies:

  1. Made of Raw ingredients so you enjoy the benefit of maximum vitamins and minerals
  2. Fruits and vegies offer high fiber which is essential for colon health and lowering cholesterol
  3. Extremely versatile – the recipe combinations are limitless
  4. Minimal “messing up” of the kitchen since all that is needed is a powerful blender
  5. It’s easy to add protein power, tofu, or other ingredients to create a high protein drink that can function as an entire meal
  6. Inexpensive – no need to cook over a stove, no canning or preserving needed
  7. Inexpensive #2 – Buy fruits and vegies in season at a bargain price, then freeze for later use in smoothies
  8. FAST! – In less than 5 minutes you can blend up yummy smoothies for the whole family
  9. Older kids can prepare a smoothie as a healthy after school snack as they wait for supper
  10. Smoothies can be served as a desert
  11. Bonus # 11 – Less colds and flu

Did you see bonus reason #11?  Yes, that’s right; once you start making fresh smoothies every day,  you will notice a decrease in the amount of colds and flu you are noticing.  I know this from personal experience so I am sure you won’t see that anywhere else!

My daughter used to catch strep throat every year.  One year I received a Vita Mix for Christmas and started making healthy smoothies for the whole family every morning.  That was the end of her colds and strep!  She is in her 20’s now and still drinks smoothies, and has never had strep again.

There are a lot of great blenders on the market and as long as you have one that is powerful, you will be able to make smoothies.  However I wanted a Vita Mix because I wanted to make more than smoothies (but I will blog about that some other time).

There are also some good kindle books with smoothie recipes that can help you get started right away.

But first I would like to invite you to take advantage of my FREE 10-day mini eCourse  on smoothies to get you started right away.  You will get one via email every other day until you have all 10.  This is a great place to get started – for free!
