I am always looking to get more servings of fruits and veggies in my day so here's another way I've been able to do it. I've made this drink a part of my weekday daily routine. I usually throw in whatever fruits & veggies I have at home; however I do my best to load it with cancer fighting ones and always add 2 spoons of chia seeds.
At first my drink contained more fruit, less veggies for taste purposes but I started changing the ratio of fruit to veggies daily (more veggies, less fruit) and my taste buds quickly adjusted.
Below is the recipe for my smoothie today however every day I change it up so don't feel like you have to use the same ingredients. I tend to use different types of berries in the summer as they are loaded with antioxidents.
If you are running out of the house every morning, you can also pack your blender with the ingredients (minus the water) the night before. You can blend this right before leaving the house and take in a travel cup for your commute. Some 'fruitful' advice- drink within the hour as I do believe the drink lose some of its nutritional value over time.
- Load your blender/bullet with whatever fruits and veggies you have in your refrigerator.
- Add Chia Seeds
- Before drinking, add water & blend
