How-To: Make Healthy Meal Replacement Weight-Loss Smoothies

Here’s a TON (well, not literally a ton) of recipes to liven up your weight-loss smoothies! But first, some suggestions for how to get the best quality smoothies and save a bit of money too!
  1. Invest in a blender with at least an 800-watt motor. 
  2. Prepare frozen fruit ahead to save time. Cut and freeze on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag or container.
  3. Frozen bananas go a long way. Peel, slice, and freeze them. This go-to smoothie ingredient adds thickness without taking over other flavors.
  4. Add ingredients like milk, yogurt, water, or juice first to get the blender moving. Then, add lighter, drier ingredients, like leafy greens, followed by heavy ingredients like ice and fruit pieces.
