11 Ways to Rock Your Smoothie

Try these easy and delicious tailor-made smoothies.

Who doesn’t love a smoothie? They’re delicious, and if made right, packed with a treasure trove of nutrients. Let’s start with the foundation– the protein.

With 20 grams of protein per serving, whether your goal is to lose weight, maintain your weight or build lean muscle,  is exactly what you’re looking for.

Linked to juvenile diabetes, digestive problems, and cardiovascular issues, A1 protein has a nasty reputation for a reason.

You’ll find A1 in most cow’s milk in North America, which is why I recommend setting down that glass of milk and picking up a smoothie.

Unlike many other rice proteins, it’s virtually heavy metal-free– particularly of arsenic, cadmium and lead that are so prevalent in vegan brands.

It’s sweetened with all-natural stevia and the pre-biotic, inulin to nourish the bacteria in your GI tract.

I recommend adding cran-water (made with only pure cranberry juice) to any smoothie, but especially recommend it with Body Protein.

It can be a bit chalky and cran-water does the trick to counteract that, as well as boost your lymphatic system and aid to emulsify fat deposits via the flavonoids, enzymes and organic acids contained in cranberry.

The Basic Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces water or cran-water
  • 1 scoop Whey Protein or Body Protein
  • 1 serving fresh or frozen fruit
  • 1 tablespoon organic oil (flax or coconut).
  • 1 scoop of Daily Greens (to optimize pH, DNA replication, DNA renewal and cleansing).
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds.
  • Ice cubes (optional).

Instructions:.

Combine fruit, both powders, and water in a blender. Add oil, seeds, and add-ins. Blend all ingredients to desired consistency.

Now, for the perfect personalized add-ins for your best smoothie.

1) To whittle your middle, add two tablespoons of non-GMO soy or sunflower lecithin granules.

2) To fire up your metabolism, add one-quarter teaspoon of cayenne.

3) To fight carb cravings, add one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.

4) To boost your antioxidant levels, add one-half teaspoon of turmeric.

5) To detox, add one-half teaspoon of cream of tartar, which is high in potassium.

6) To encourage regularity, add one tablespoon of flax seeds.

7) To boost collagen, add one tablespoon of Great Lakes gelatin.

8) To blast bloating, add five grams of fennel seed.

9) To regular blood sugar, add one-quarter teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon.

10) To clear your complexion, add one-quarter teaspoon basil.

11) To soothe your tummy, add one-quarter teaspoon powder ginger.

May these delicious smoothies allow you a chance to get creative and design the best meal or snack to fit your specific needs.
