Everyone seems to agree that Americans don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. My favorite way to address the fruit issue is with a smoothie first thing in the morning.
I buy frozen fruit or freeze cut-up leftover fresh fruit before it gets a chance to go bad and store them in pre-measured portions in the freezer so that in the morning all I have to do is place the fruit in a blender with some almond milk, fruit juice or coconut milk and blend. Using frozen fruit means you don’t have to dilute the flavors down with ice cubes to get that ideal smoothie texture and it’s also an easy way to always have nutritious fruit on hand. I’ll never waste fresh fruit again! Once the bananas start to go I peel them and freeze.
Fruit is deliciously sweet on it’s own but sometimes I’ll add a little bit of honey or agave nectar if I’m craving something extra.
