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!

    Instead of OJ, do you think 2 oranges would be okay?

    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!!
