Wellness: Smoothie Time

smoothies on just ruminating men's blog

Smoothies are an incredible source of energy, well balanced nutrition. The key is to invest in a really good blender (and don’t whine about the price, you’re worth it). That’s a weapon that, if you use diligently, your body will thank you over and over for it!

Do these steps in order (It does matter!)

  1. Blend your non-frozen ingredients first.
  2. Add any frozen ingredients.
  3. Add the ice last so you can adjust your level of frozen goodness!
  4. Finally, you can adjust the level of extract/syrup if you have too little sweetness for your liking.
  5. Enjoy!
