When some people think of smoothies, they think, “YUCK!” They think it’s a bunch of gross, bland, mushed-up veggies in a blender. Believe me, my first attempt at making my own smoothie was pretty memorable, as it tasted horrible. After learning not only about which foods should be going into smoothies but also how to properly combine them for nutrients and taste, I found that I LOVE smoothies!!!! You can love smoothies, too! I have a ton of recipes, including this Cherry Pie Smoothie that’ll turn your bad impression of smoothies into a love affair like no other.
Smoothies are a really great way to pack a lot of nutrients into just one glass. You are giving your body nutrients in an easy-to-digest form, which gives your digestion a break, leaving more energy for you. Smoothies can help to increase your energy and kick the sugar cravings that so often crop up in the winter months. When we learn to balance our blood sugar on our own, naturally, those cravings DISAPPEAR! The best way to start this is to begin every morning with a nutrient-packed smoothie in your hand!
