Follow these steps and enjoy a blended drink in minutes. (makes 2 cups)

Smoothie ingredients to choose from:

1. START WITH A LIQUID BASE (1 CUP)

  • Milk or milk alternatives (soy or almond beverage)
  • Fruit juice (100% fruit juice with no added sweeteners)
  • Coconut water or plain water
  • Nutritional supplements such as Boost® or Resource® 2.0, if you need extra calories and protein

2. ADD FRUIT AND VEGETABLE (1 CUP)

  • Mix up your favourite combination of fruits (berries, apples, peaches, banana etc.)
  • You can use fresh or frozen fruit (frozen fruit will thicken the smoothie)
  • Fresh vegetables are also great to add to smoothies for more nutrition and fl avour (leafy greens such as spinach, kale, arugula, blend the best)

3. ADD NUTRIENT BOOSTERS

  • If you’re looking for more protein, calories, fibre, or healthy fats in your smoothie you can always add some extra ingredients
  • Greek yogurt or skim milk powder are great additions to increase protein
  • Try adding unfl avoured protein powders (such as Beneprotein®) to increase protein content without changing the taste
  • Add some bran or oats for extra fibre
  • Try adding nuts, ground flax seed or hemp seed to boost healthy fats

4. ADD EXTRA FLAVOURS

  • You can sweeten your smoothie with some honey, maple syrup or agave nectar
  • Give it a boost of fl avour with some ground spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger
  • Brighten up the fl avour with some citrus zest, such as lemon, orange, lime
  • Try extracts (vanilla, almond, peppermint)
