I started making smoothies about 10 years ago when my oldest was little. It was a way for me to ensure we all got the vitamins and minerals we needed at least at one meal. I have since discovered a lot about smoothies
- the health benefits, the perfect formula for making them, what to add to them to make them more flavorful and more nutritious, whether or not it's worth it to buy a smoothie blender and much more. I've put it all in this article, plus some recipes for my favorite smoothies.
And be sure to check out my green smoothie video recipe, too. Enjoy!
