How to make a Simple Smoothie

Updated: Mar 18, 2023

I decided to make a short video for you; showing you how I make a smoothie in the morning. Very, very simple.

I was rather nervous and so I am not my usual smiley self!  With practice, I will get better.

Watch it here.

The measurements for the ingredients are all listed below.

I forgot to mention that adding your favourite flavours is a great idea.

Here are some suggestions:

  1. vanilla

  2. maple syrup (just a little)

  3. cinnamon

  4. raw cacao powder

  5. freshly squeezed orange juice

  6. almond butter

  7. use hemp or flax seeds instead of chia

  8. coconut oil
