05 Jul The Healthiest Smoothie Recipe
I have become obsessed with smoothies lately. I just love them. They are so refreshing especially when it’s so hot out. I make them almost every day and while I used to say I would prefer to eat my food, than drink it, I guess I have changed my mind. I have been sharing so many pictures of my smoothies in my instagram stories that I thought it was time to share my recipe. It’s actually super easy and super healthy. I find that so many smoothies contain so many bad ingredients, so I am excited to share this recipe as it’s actually good for you.

For the longest time I was getting grass-fed protein from a friend, but she has since moved so I’m now using Nuzest. I can’t say I have done a ton of research on it, but at first glance it passed my health test. If you want a tub yourself, you can use the code ‘induetime’ to get 15% off. I did look on amazon and am eyeing this for my next purchase, which is grass-fed and what I prefer to get. I highly recommend making sure whatever protein powder you use, it’s actually healthy and not full of a lot of junk.
I make these smoothies any time of the day. Sometimes it’s for breakfast, sometimes an afternoon snack and sometimes after dinner. I have done it all and I can tell you that no matter what time of day you make it, it will be delicious.
The Healthiest Smoothie Recipe
Add in the following and blend. The more ice, the thicker your smoothie will be:
- 1/2 blender full of Spinach
- 1/5 blender full of Ice
- 1/5 blender full of Water
- Any fruit, any amount. I like orange, banana, pineapple and/or strawberries
- 2-3 drops of essential oils. I like lemon, orange, grapefruit and/or citrus fresh
- Small piece of ginger
- Scoop of Vanilla protein powder
Voila. It really is that easy and that delicious. I highly recommend the Vitamix blender. We used to have the Ninja, and honestly the Vitamix is worth every penny spent and in my opinion, is much better than the Ninja.
