Smoothies offer a myriad of benefits for your health and well-being. They are simply- an easy and fun way to consume a wide range of essential nutrients. Packed with fruits, vegetables, and even superfoods, they provide a concentrated dose of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are beneficial for your body.

You can certainly get creative with countless ingredient combinations. Adapt them to your dietary preferences, and even customize them to address specific health concerns or goals. Choose fiber rich foods- like kale and chia seeds to promote healthy digestion, help with constipation, and support your gut health.  The possibilities are truly endless. Choose ingredients, such as berries, citrus fruits, and leafy greens, that are loaded with immune-boosting antioxidants and vitamins. Regularly drinking smoothies can enhance your body’s natural defense mechanisms and help fend off common illnesses.

So please join me and my friend, Tess, a recipe developer and smoothie expert as we talk about the benefits of smoothies and making data informed decisions about your health. Together we highlight the common mistakes when using smoothies and  share tips to improve your recipes. You won’t want to miss this episode!

  • Most fruits have a cooling effect which makes them hydrating. But you can add warming ingredients like ginger and cinnamon to your smoothies.
  • You can make great savory smoothies which are essentially cold soups.
  • Smoothies can be a great solution for those who have allergies and sensitivities because you choose every element that you add into it and can tailor it to your specific needs.
  • Adding lemon or lime juice to your smoothies, helps to elevate and lift their flavors.
  • Think about the flavor profiles in your favorite foods and translate this into your smoothie making.
  • It’s important to test if you are sensitive to oxalates, you can do this by having a food high in them and watch for your responses.
  • We need to learn more about smoothies. As a result, we can choose the best elements and ingredients for ourselves. For example, many people would react to chia seeds unknowingly, flax seeds are a great alternative.
  • Numerous sources promise quick wins and solutions, but lack credible and legitimate content. That is to say, make sure to look for reliable information.


“It’s a way to get a lot of nutrients in one drink”

“One of the biggest mistakes people make is they put too much fruit in the smoothie”

“It’s just liquefied food”

“It’s really important to know what’s appropriate for you and making data driven decisions about health”

“Really think about where the information is coming from and ensure you’re getting science based credible information”
