It is no secret that eating wholesome fruits and vegetables is transformative to the body. Smoothies are an easy and complete way to pack in more fruits and vegetables. Blending these super foods retains their fiber, vitamins and minerals. Fiber keeps us full longer and aids digestion. You can also drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices but juices tend to throw out all the fiber leaving you with a drink that is high in sugar. Smoothies are perfect for the busy individuals who want to fuel right but don’t have time to cook a healthy breakfast. A smoothie is a complete breakfast, lunch and dinner that one can enjoy on the go. So without further delay, let us study some easy homemade weight loss shakes and smoothie recipes to start your day with.
You do not need a whole lot of kitchen equipment for smoothie making, but there is one tool you can’t do without and that is a blender. Masticating type blenders are best for juicing and smoothie making. The Vitamix 750 is also one of the most powerful (albeit expensive) blenders for smoothie making. It has very good features like manual speed control, a large pitcher and multi pronged blades to blend ice cubes, frozen fruit and other hard ingredients. Of course, the choice of a blender depends on your budget. You can always use an existing blender, as long as it gets the job done. Other top choices in budget blenders for smoothie making include: Ninja Professional Blender and Hamilton Beach Wave Crusher.
