7 Healthy Smoothies & Juices

I am a big fan of easy, lazy just blitz in the blender smoothies. The fruits I pick for my smoothies are easy to process without too much peeling or picking seeds. I prefer to have smoothies in the mornings. Sometimes I have the smoothie as the breakfast itself. I have a big jar of it mind you. Other times, if I am sharing it with Jagan and drinking only a small glass of it, I have the smoothie alongside my breakfast. All the smoothie recipes below are for 1-2 people. I do not believe anyone needs a recipe to make a juice or smoothie. At-least not yet. It is so much easier to sit where we are and scroll through the list of juices and order one than to lift the bum from the seat, walk over to the kitchen, peel that fruit, chop it, dump in the mixie with milk and honey and blend and pour into glasses and then wash that blender.

Have chilled milk and yogurt in your fridge at all times. Always use only chilled milk in your smoothies. Hot milk will curdle too when blended too long. You can use yogurt instead of milk if you prefer a slight tangy undertone.   There are plenty of ways to sweeten your smoothie. Honey, brown sugar, powdered jaggery, jaggery syrup or just plain sugar. I’ve tried all of these at different times. Honey is very light sweet, so you may need to add more of it if you have a sweet tooth. The brown sugar adds a lovely caramel kind of note which I love in a banana smoothie. Sometimes I add just plain sugar too if I need straight...
