We know that fruits and vegetables are healthy but it can be difficult getting the kids (and adults, for that matter) to load up on these foods. In fact, sometimes you can’t get your kids to eat a good meal at all. So why not serve everyone a nutritious meal-in-a-glass? Healthy smoothie recipes can provide a delicious meal or snack with all the nutrients your family needs.

Smoothie recipes are easy to find and easier to make. Once you learn the basics of smoothie-making, all you need is a little creativity to come up with your own healthy smoothies recipes. If you run out of creativity just look in the fridge or freezer and grab whatever is handy. You can’t go wrong with a refreshing smoothie.

Smoothie 101: What A Smoothie Should Have

A healthy smoothie needs something with real substance, like a banana, yogurt or tofu. This will keep you from feeling hungry half an hour after downing your smoothie.

Add your favorite fruit. Fruits can be fresh, canned or frozen. When using frozen fruits, you may not need the banana or tofu to thicken the smoothie.

A smoothie also needs a flavorful liquid. Use fruit juices, milk, tea, coconut milk, soy milk, etc.

You can also add ice cubes or crushed ice for a thicker and more refreshing smoothie. However, you may not need ice if you are using frozen fruits.

Tips for Making Healthy Smoothies Recipes

Use fruits in season for a more delicious and nutritious smoothie. Besides, they’re cheaper. You may want to freeze extra fruits for future use.

Experiment with the ingredients. Find out what flavors you like and the consistency that you prefer.

Don’t be uptight about measurements. They’re more of a suggestion, not carved in stone. And while you’re at it, you can switch ingredients around. Use whatever fruits are available or cheap. No one will complain.
