Usually smoothies are a summer drink, but thanks to the awesomeness of Trader Joe’s and their frozen foods, I’m rocking the smoothies this January. I was inspired by a Body & Soul article about a five week detox that included a four day juice fast. This also happened to coincide with the Prana Cleanse, as well as the New Year (no coincidence there.) So I figured, why not do a detox on my own. Thus began a the smoothie adventure.
I’ve experimented mostly with fruit and almond milk. I’ve been trying to stay away from dairy and using almond milk and bananas for creaminess.
Today’s smoothie is a blend of pineapple, mango, berries, ginger and carrot juice.
I’m curious about other things that can be added to smoothies: like wheat germ or ground flax seeds. I tried the ground flax seeds but they weren’t ground finely enough.
What else do you put into your smoothies to booth ’em up?
