No-Stress Smoothie Recipes
Updated: Apr 2
I used to think smoothies were unhealthy. Most stores create these drinks with chemically frozen ingredients and pasteurized juices. I was turned-off by event the most delicious-looking strawberry banana smoothie.
After hearing a live lecture from Joe “the Juicer” Cross, I learned that juicing is only one way to bring nutrients into the body. Smoothies are another. The best part about making your own smoothies is that you control exactly what goes in it. No more hoping for healthy. It’s time to take the blender into your own hands.
Benefits of Fresh Smoothies
Making a smoothie is different than any type of juice. Instead of extracting the juice from the fiber with a juicer, a blender literally blends all ingredients together. Below are some of the many reasons why fresh smoothies are both delicious and nutritious:
Supports digestive health
Uses all the fiber to sweep toxins through digestive track
Aids in regular elimination
Satisfies hunger and sustains energy over time
Balances blood sugar
