I have heard a tons of great things about juicing. Juicing is an easier way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet, but on the other hand, you don’t get a lot of fiber that is in the fruits and vegetables. Juicing machines usually extract the juice and leave behind all the pulp, that being said you left all the fiber behind. In addition to that, juicers can be pretty expensive as compare to a blender.
As I mentioned before, juicers are much more expensive than a bender. I spent about two weeks doing research about juicers and blenders. Knowing me, I ended up with a blender, I got my Ninja Professional Blender (BL610) from Amazon while they were on sale. Now that we have the blender, what kind of smoothie should we make? I saw a bag of frozen antioxidant blend berries that I picked up when we were at Costco two weeks ago.
I decided to try out the blender on Sunday morning. What’s better than starting the day with a vitamin C smoothie and a slice of toast?
- 1 cup of Sunrise Growers Organic Antioxidant Blend
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 cup of kale
- 1 Fuji apple
- Place all the ingredients in the blender and hit the power button. Blend all the ingredients on high for two minutes.
Viola, another smoothie recipe that can be done in one step. My philosophy is, healthy doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. Sometimes a simple recipe like this could be just what you need to stay healthy.
