Smoothie Add-ins:

Chia Seeds – great source of protein and fiber; these little guys keep you feeling full

Flax Seeds  – need to be crushed or blended thoroughly or they’ll just pass through 😉

Wheat Germ – adds protein and natural oils

Goji Berries – provide 20 vitamins & minerals including Vitamin A, Zinc, Iron, and more. Great for immune-boosting!

Tools for making Healthy Fruit Smoothies:

I use a Blendtec to make my healthy smoothie recipes. I have the Blendtec Designer Series Blender and it makes it easy to prepare smoothies quickly. It gets used nearly every day.

Looking for something more affordable? The Cuisinart SPB-600 SmartPower Deluxe Die Cast Blender is a solid choice, but won’t blend ice and frozen fruit quite as easily as a higher-powered blender.

I store my smoothies in glass jars – the bonus is that I can drink out of them too!  Don’t forget the Glass straw!
