Smoothie STARS

January- The start of a new year. Chances are you made some New Years resolutions: maybe to limit social media, read more, or the ever-so-popular choice of being healthier. January can be a busy month of returning to work/school after the holidays and smoothies are a great way to stay in line with healthy eating habits.

1. “New Year, New Me”

I’m sure you’ve heard this cliché expression before. Every year we think it, we might even say it, and this is a smoothie that might actually help you achieve it! This green smoothie features spinach, kale, avocado, and superfood kiwi. It’s low in saturated fat, low in calories, and a good source of fiber!


Recipe:

- 1 cup spinach

- 1 kiwi – peeled

- ½ frozen banana

- 1/3 avocado

- 1 Tbsp lemon juice

- ½ cup water

Add everything to blender and blend until combined.



2. Apricot Smoothie

Did you know January 9th is National Apricot Day? Well, now you do. Celebrate accordingly with this sweet apricot and strawberry smoothie, it only needs three ingredients!

Recipe:

- 2 cups strawberries (I prefer frozen)

- 3 apricots (I used canned)

- ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)

Add everything to blender and blend until combined.

3. Piña Colada

Despite the cold January weather, this Piña Colada smoothie will have you daydreaming of sitting on a beach. I used all frozen fruit in this smoothie because it provided a thicker consistency, but you can use raw if preferred.

- ½ banana, frozen

- ½ cup frozen pineapple

- ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk

- ¼ - ½ cup ice cubes

Add everything but ice cubes to blender and blend until combined. Then, add ice and blend.
