Who doesn’t love a refreshing and delicious smoothie? In this post, we are sharing a new mix that combines citric fruit, yogurt and carrots. Use greek yogurt for added protein. Ideally, this is a breakfast smoothie, and so you don’t have an excuse to run out the door on an empty stomach in the morning, you can prepare your smoothie fruits for the whole week, by cutting and dividing portions in freezer bags. That way, in the morning rush, you just need to pull out one of the bags from the freezer, add the liquids, blend and you’re done!
It’s important that the fruit you use for your smoothies is frozen, otherwise you won’t get that smoothie consistency. Also, we recommend that you add the liquid to the blender first, then the yogurt and the fruit. This way, it’ll be easier to blend.
At Almacenes Siman we found a small blender that aside from being a pretty little gadget, is also very practical. After you finish blending up your smoothie, you can just take the glass and go. If you would rather drink it at home, we found these great mason jar glasses that are perfect for this type of beverage. We also found a cutting board with a green detail. This detail is great for identifying your cutting board, you can assign it specifically for cutting fruits, this way you avoid contamination and getting other food’s flavor on your fruit (like onion)
