  • These look good. I also love that the ingredients are highly available almost anywhere. With smoothies, you can always add a lot of fruits and vegies to the mix. They’re my favorite go-to snack whenever I’m craving something and I don’t want to give in.

  • Even for not weight loss purposes, my kids love smoothies. It’s the best way you can help them get their daily amount of nutrients. It’s fuss-free when the vegies are in smoothie form. You don’t always tell them about it though! Because even if you can’t even taste the vegies, they’ll be complaining about how gross it is.

  • Sometimes I add oats to my smoothies for a more filling snack. They add a little texture to it but it doesn’t really alter the taste.

  • I love how refreshing these smoothies are. Even during the cold months I just add fewer ice to the mix and I’m all good.❤️

  • I love pineapples. I honestly believe it’s such an amazing fruit that has so much fiber in it. I’m not a healthy eater but I make sure to eat pineapples whenever I can because it really helps in my digestion. For some reason I think of it as a detox fruit that sweeps away all the crap I eat.

  • Smoothies are great snacks. I also read somewhere that fruits are better eaten before meals instead of after meals because it will be easier for you to digest what you just ate. So in between meals, I love preparing smoothies.

  • I’m not sure if mint has health benefits but they taste really good when added to smoothies. Even when I’m making savory ones it’s really nice. I love the fresh taste it gives.

  • I make it habit to prepare at least one smoothie per day. A mix of fruits that offer different vitamins per day. I’ve been a vegan for quite a while and I struggle with deficiencies. My mood has been crappy so I’m trying to eat a lot of healthy stuff lately to compensate. Not sure if I’m improving in any way but I’m trying my best.

  • My kids love peaches in smoothies. I add brocolli and they can’t even recognize it. Celery has too much flavor and they can tell so I don’t bother with it. #MomTricks 😛

  • I seriously can’t fathom the taste of mangoes with celery. Celery has a onion like flavor and it doesn’t taste nice with fruits. I would rather just eat my celery with dips than force myself to eat it like that. It’s a nice tasting vegie that’s good with savory food, not sweet ones.

    • It’s because fruits and vegies have high fiber and that’s what aids in weightloss. There isn’t a single fruit and vegie in this world that makes you lose weight.

  • I’m not good at concocting smoothies. I usually just stick to 1-2 fruits/vegies so I don’t end up blending crap together. Certain fruits can’t even go together… Smoothies already have such a weird texture so it’s scary to just toss in ingredients into the blender and end up with a weird colored concoction.

  • I was just wondering if anyone of you know how effective Chia seeds are? They say it’s a good weightloss helper and you could mix it anywhere you want. Even on yogurt and smoothies.
