Everyone should own a blender- they’re a fabulous investment towards staying healthy. Speaking of healthy, chugging down a smoothie [ and no, Jamba Juice doesn’t count ] is perfect way to attain tons of vitamins & essential nutrients; personally I’m obsessed with making my own at home [ evidence found here and here ]. If that’s not enough of a reason to guzzle them down, then here’s three more: drinking smoothies before a big dinner out will prevent overeating, they deceptively hide any bitter-tasting veggies [ think kale ], & they take minutes to prepare.

++ Quick Skinny Tip: you don’t need a gallon of juice to make a smoothie delicious. Use fruits to substitute juice. My rule of thumb is two to three splashes of juice for each recipe. Oh, & make sure the juice is not from concentrate- yuck!

      I’ve made this smoothie for breakfast the last two days. Quick to prepare, delicious and eliminates cravings before lunch. Thank you Lauryn!

    Great smoothie! Try adding some protein…whey and flax are excellent for making you feel fuller longer. Also, my new addition to my “Vitamix Blender”…Saffola Oil!!
