All in Smoothies and Drinks
This version is much lower in sugar and bigger in flavour than store-bought lemonade, plus it's killer mixed with vanilla vodka at cocktail hour! The ingredients are simple and you can easily adjust the strength of the flavour and the sweetness to your liking.
This simple green smoothie is really fresh and packs a nutritious punch with 7g of fiber and 18g of protein, not to mention all those vitamins and minerals from the greens! Plus, some nutrition talk about milk and milk alternatives. As an added bonus I got to use some fresh mint from my little garden I have growing on my patio!
Smoothies are big these days, but how do you build a well-balanced smoothie? Some smoothies are really balanced and nutritious, but some end up really high in sugar, and packed with way more calories than we give them credit for! Follow these steps to ensure you have a well balanced smoothie that works as a meal or a snack, won't overload you with sugar, and packs a healthy dose of nutrients.
Who doesn't love an Orange Julius? Slightly sweet, deliciously frothy. My roommate found a similar recipe years ago for us to try, and we loved it! I can't remember where it's from, but I've re-created it with a few modifications :) Without any added sugar or other preservatives in commercial drinks, I use real fruit and milk to create a pretty close match for the original!
