Helpful Tips To Prepare a Smoothie

  1. Follow the 60/40 formula;  60% fruits to 40% leafy greens
  2. Avoid chunks and blend in stages; blend up your leafy greens and liquid first, then add the fruits and blend again
  3. To get an extra chilly smoothie, freeze your fruits and greens first then add straight to the blender
  4. Use raw natural sweeteners, if necessary, like dates or raw local honey
  5. In a  rush? Make ahead and put in airtight containers (for up to 2 days) and just grab and go!
