Highlights & Tips

When making smoothies it's best to invest in a blender that has a strong enough motor to last for a few years.  There are some great ones out there but this Ninja blender does the job and is under $100.  If you want to invest in a blender that will last a long time purchase a Vitamix blender.

You can make your own nut milk or find dehydrated milk to use.  Cashew is a great silky milk but you can use any nut milk you prefer.

Presentation

This is a high nutrient healthy drink so we often serve it in a smaller tumbler.  Garnish it with fresh cut green apple and top it off with fresh berries!

Budget Tips

If you want to save a little money make your own smoothies.  If you buy your produce in bulk and clean and prep things yourself you will save a little money.  Purchase your produce at a farmers market to support your local business or if you can eat up all the yummy produce buy them at a club like Costco.

You can make your own milk which will save you a little money but you will need to invest in a milk maker or purchase a dry powder nut milk which is quick to whip up!

Storage Recommendations

Storing your fruit is best to place them in food containers specifically made to hold fruit and vegetables.  If you store your produce correctly you will get a longer shelf life out of them.

If you have left over nut milk use a tight sealed glass pitcher to hold your product.  This will also extend the shelf life and should last a couple days.  We do not suggest storing your smoothie, its best to drink it up right away!

What to do with left over's or extra product?

Use you left over avocados to make guacamole for a dip or avocado toast!  If you have left over nut milk you can make some fresh ice cream and add in your favorite fruit!  

Apples can store up for several days if not weeks depending how fresh they are.
