Smoothies

Don’t act like you didn’t see this page coming? If you are an avid reader, you know I have a love for smoothies. It could be -10 degrees outside, but you better believe I’m sitting under blankets in sweat pants having a smoothie bowl (… and maybe complaining to my husband that I’m cold, Ha Ha!).

  1. Hi, what is your usual daily smoothie? Do you find a lot of fruit can be overwhelming or floppy on the stomach? I like fruit (a lot) but find I cant overload too much in one sitting, so I worry about smoothie recipes with a lot of fruit. Do you add healthy fat to your smoothie (i.e. flax, coconut oil, etc). Thanks.
    Also, ,what is your typical nighttime snack? Would LOVE to see more typical days from you.
    I was thinking about trying about whey protein, but hear the pure whey isolate is the best (no “concentrate” and no extra weird sweeteners). Thoughts on brands? I also hear vegan ones are good, what do you think? Theyy are expensive, so I don’t want to fool up. Thanks again. Happy Holidays.

    • Hi Rachel!!

      I hardly ever drink the same smoothie once a week (unless I’m hooked on one Ha Ha). I’ve found that mostly all fruits are okay, just don’t over do it with Bananas. Bananas can cause constipation if eaten too many. However, if you just continue to mix up the fruit you use, you’ll be fine. I’ve actually never tried flax before, but have only heard wonderful things about it. I definitely recommend some sort of healthy fat; peanut butter, or coconut oil are good ideas. I know certain milks can be hard on someone stomach, so I always use almond milk.. sometimes I’ll do 1/2 tofu, 1/2 milk.. or even just water/coconut water. When it come to protein powder.. I’ve been using Myofusion Probiotic from gaspari Nutrition. I’ve tried plant fusion, but the taste just wasn’t there for me. Myofusion has so many wonderful flavors that I think you’d really enjoy. It makes it even easier to change up your flavors in your smoothies. I buy mine from vitacost. It’s about 25 dollars for a 2 lb container. Not a bad price at all =)

      I’ve been extremely busy lately, but I will continue to add more smoothie creations to when I get a chance.

      Hope this was helpful for you.

      **Ohh & my nighttime snack almost always changes.

      • Thanks for the reply. I’m going to google the myofusion. My worry is that its not 100% pure whey isolate…I’d rather have a pure, digestively “easY’ powder versus one that might have a bunch of complicated stuff, ha.
