Hey girls! If you're looking for a quick and convenient way to get a blast of nutrients, including protein, carbs, vitamins and more on the go, then smoothies are the way to go! You could make a yummy filling breakfast on-the-go, a meal replacement or the perfect no-hassle post-workout shake. It's really up to you!
A few things to keep in mind:
The amount of liquid, water or milk you add to your smoothies is completely based on preference (depending on the consistency you enjoy)
Add a little bit of liquid at a time till you get the consistency you enjoy. It's always easier to add a little at a time than realizing you added too much.
Optional sweeteners: stevia, honey, maple syrup.
