Green drink powder: Literally, that’s what it’s called. I get it at Trader Joe’s . I like to use this in veggie-based smoothies (it’s a color thing, since they are already green) to add anti-oxidant boosting power. It’s berry flavored though, so it works in many a smoothie. It’s full of things like spirulina and seaweed and other stuff people like to call “superfoods.”

Same deal as green, but it’s red and it’s pretty flavorless to me. It’s full of berry goodness from like 12,000 fruits I can’t bother to re-list here. When I refer to “1 scoop of anti-oxidant boosting powder” in my daily recipes, I am talking about one of these two powders.

This is my single most valued smoothie ingredient. Since I’ve started adding a tablespoon of chia seeds to my diet every morning, things have finally started, umm, moving through my digestive tract. Chia seeds can be soaked before adding to a smoothie, which will make them soft, but I just throw them in. They add a little crunch, kinda like the seeds on the outside of a strawberry. Whichever way you do it, I can’t recommend these enough.

I’ve used regular flax seeds, but having them pre-ground is nice for a smoother smoothie. Flax seeds add omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and lignans, all of which work together to make you healthier in like 10,000 different ways. I like to add flax seeds to my diet whenever I can because there is some evidence they help prevent cancers. Who knows if that is true, but it feels good and it’s not hurting us to eat them. And any natural way to add fiber is always a good thing.

Ok, this one is probably a little weird, but keep it on hand during smoothie-making, What I do is crush up some fennel seeds (from the spice section of the grocery store) and boil them in water. I let it reduce down a bit so the tea is concentrated, then strain out the seeds. Add to smoothie, watch gas/bloating/ibs symptoms subside.

You can make a smoothie out of pretty much anything, but it helps to think about it like this…

Some liquid (water, milk, yogurt),
something frozen (either pre-frozen fruit or ice),
some fresh fruit, a bit of veggies/leafy things,
any supplements you like, and
occasionally if necessary a sweetener (it usually isn’t, but if so I like honey)
and/or spices (cinnamon or ginger are the ones we use most often).
So that’s what I use to make my smoothies.
ENJOY!
