First of all, I love simple smoothies. My go-to smoothie has just some banana, berries and coconut oil but you can put pretty much anything in a smoothie. Here are some popular choices to give you some ideas:
What to put in a smoothie
Here’s a list of ingredients that you can put in your smoothie:
To make it sweet
At least in my opinion, smoothie has to be sweet. So let’s start with a sweet element.
To make it healthy (not that these other categories wouldn’t be…)
When you have smoothies you probably want to make them as healthy as possible. So why not “hide” some really healthy elements to it?
Fresh herbs such as mint
Hemp protein powder
To add some fat
That sounds a bit gross but fat in a smoothie is actually a really good thing because as we know today, fat is good for you. It will also help keep your hunger at bay. Try these:
Nuts and almonds
Now, you probably don’t want to eat your smoothie with a spoon so add some liquid.
Coconut milk or water
Juices (be careful, they might contain a lot of sugar)
Another thing you can do is add some texture to your smoothie. Here’s some ideas:
Frozen fruit or berries
Finally, in addition to all these ingredients, you can also add some extra flavor.
Cacao powder or hot chocolate mix
So what do you put in your smoothie?
