Smoothies & Juices

Tip

Keeping frozen fruits on-hand makes preparing refreshing smoothies super-simple.

When a banana is very ripe, instead of throwing it away, I take off the skin, cut the fruit into 3-4 pieces and freeze flat in a zip-top bag. I do the same with berries when they start to soften. Just wash and freeze in a zip-top bag. Be sure to remove all the air from the bag to ensure food safety.

When I’m making a smoothie, I just toss the frozen fruit into the mix—delicious!

Tip

Healthy Sugar Alternative

If you want to add a little more sweetness to your smoothies, try one of these options.

Add a bit more banana OR 1 pitted date OR 1 teaspoon good quality honey (raw honey, manuka honey) OR sprinkle in some cinnamon powder.
