Smoothies taste great, are good for your health, and are best when they are made with nutrient dense ingredients. When made with natural, all real ingredients, like fruits and vegetables, they are a wonderful option for a meal or healthy snack.
Drinking a smoothie for breakfast helps get you hydrated for the day, something that coffee or soda won’t do. Adding dairy products to your smoothies will provide you with calcium and fat that is needed for biological functions and helps your body assimilate vitamins.
With a freeze dryer and good blender, making healthy smoothies is a snap. Simply freeze dry the fruits and vegetables that you like in smoothies. Once they have been freeze-dried, you can store them as is or crush them into a powder. Pour milk or yogurt into a blender, add the desired combination of freeze-dried fruits and vegetables into the blender, and add some ice. That’s it! Now blend and enjoy.
It can be difficult to always have fresh produce on hand, but freeze-dried fruits and vegetables are ready whenever you need them. Simply add a few to your next smoothie or eat them on-the-go.
The best way to get the nutrients your body needs is from food and consuming a healthful smoothie every day gives you a large dosage of nutrition in a delicious way.
