If you’ve ever felt intimidated by making a smoothie, or confused about which ingredients to use and buy, then you've come to the right place! Making a smoothie for breakfast, as a healthy snack, or as a meal replacement is easier than you may have thought in the past. As a beginner smoothie maker, you want to focus on keeping it simple. I know it can be tempting to try all the fancy supplements and powders that are out on the market, but for now stick to the basics.
Here is an easy formula to follow when making a smoothie. Fill your cup with 50% leafy greens, 1-2 servings of fruit, 1 serving of healthy fats, 1-3 servings of boosts, and a liquid. Add all those ingredients, in that order, to your cup, twist on the blade and blend! You can also build a smoothie in your NutriBullet cup the night before without the liquid. In the morning, all you have to do is add the liquid and blend it up! Perfect for those busy mornings.
