I thought it was time to actually put down exactly what goes into my smoothies, and show how easy it is to make them.  I have 3 of these a day, and have chosen the ingredients because I think they are healthy, and because I’ve grown to enjoy the taste.  I think that enjoying it is an important first step.  Find something that is convenient, healthy, tasty, and cheap.  Then make that a staple of your diet.

List of what goes into 6 24oz (0.7L) smoothie bottles:

7 powders / dry ingredients

  1. 6 teaspoons of nutritional yeast
  2. 2 heaping teaspoons of ground flaxseed

  7. 3 teaspoons of spirulina

3 frozen ingredients

  1. 1 bag of frozen spinach
  2. 1 bag of frozen California veggie mix (carrot, cauliflower, broccoli)

Fill with water and blend for 30 seconds.
