THE BEST NUTRITIONAL SMOOTHIE

We've all heard the saying, eat an apple a day to keep the doctor away. Hence why smoothies, juicing, and throwing fruits in water is at an all time high.

Fitness has taken over, and not many people want to feel like they are tipping over the average size for their age and height. Welcome to the new age of body wraps, waist cinchers, fat burning pills, and all that good stuff. Oh and of course the countless gym gurus on social media that add to the motivation to take better care of ourselves.

For those of us who want to start off with the basics, or are just lost on how to get the best out of a great tasting smoothie, then follow these steps for a nutritional boost in your immune system --- and day!

1. CHOOSE YOUR GREENS - This will give your smoothie a solid nutritional boost. They will not impart flavor.

KALE

SPINACH

SWISS CHARD

COLLARD GREENS

BEET GREENS

DANDELION

2. CHOOSE YOUR FRUIT - This is where the true flavor of your smoothie is going to come from, as well as a blast of antioxidant support.

APPLE

PEACH

BANANAS

ANY BERRIES (fresh or frozen)

MELON

MANGO

KIWI

PINEAPPLE

PAPAYA

3. SUPERCHARGE YOUR SMOOTHIE- Adds nutritional value.

One SCOOP of Cedra Pharmacy Perfect Protein powder

Your Cedra Vitamin capsules (opened)

FLAXSEED

CHIA SEEDS

SPIRULINA

RAW CACAO

4. CHOOSE YOUR BASE - This makes the smoothie smoother (ha!) so it is easier to consume and blend. 

ALMOND MILK

RICE MILK

GREEN TEA

COCONUT WATER

FILTERED WATER

or any nutritional liquid source

Toss all of these chosen ingredients in a blender, hit the ON switch and THAT'S IT! Blenders contain blades which, when operating at high speeds, tear open the cell membranes of the fruits and vegetables. The opening of the cell membranes release nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that is easily absorbed into the body. 

Note: Each step should be 1/3 of the whole smoothie. Add ice for a cooler refreshing drink. For a boost of sweetness you can add: chopped dates, stevia, maple syrup, honey, raw agave, or coconut palm sugar. Enjoy!
