Who doesn’t love how easy it is to make organic smoothies??!! It’s pretty simple, throw your favorite organic foods into your blender and poof; you have the most delicious treat ever (we mean snack or meal)!
We always like to create smoothies that taste like our favorite desserts. If we can save the calories and instead pack a glass with nothing but nutrition, then we have succeeded. Slipping in some organic spinach or kale is the perfect way to get your kids to eat their greens without them knowing about it.
If you have 5 minutes to spare, then you have time to create the healthiest meal of the day for you and your family.
Let’s talk a minute about adding milk to your smoothie. We personally like to use organic raw milk, organic almond milk or organic coconut milk. We make our own organic almond and coconut milk in our Vitamix. It took us a few years before we invested in our Vitamix, now we actually own two of them. The price may scare you at first, but we have found that there is no comparison to other blenders or food processors. The Vitamix takes the place of your food processor, your grain mill, your coffee grinder, and your juicer. No matter what you decide to create in the kitchen, the Vitamix will make it easier and possible for you.
Back to adding milk to your smoothie. We create our own organic almond and coconut milk using our Vitamix. Creating your own nut milks saves you from unwanted ingredients. Even though you may be buying an organic brand of nut milk, some of them still have unwanted ingredients in them. Please, please, please stay away from nut milks that have carageenan in them. Research links carrageenan to gastrointestinal inflammation, including higher rates of colon cancer, in laboratory animals. Yet it is still found in many foods, including some certified organic foods.
When you make your own organic nut milks, you are only getting milk with one ingredient; almond, cashew, coconut, etc. We use ‘My Big Fat Organic Nut Milk Sacks‘ to make our organic nut milks.
