Ask Honey: What Should I Put in my Smoothie?

Dear Honey, I’m trying to drink more smoothies because I hear they’re so good for you, but I’m getting bored with the same banana and peanut butter combination I always use. What are some unique, interesting ingredients I can use instead?


Dear Gramma,

Good for you! I do too.  My choices for smoothie ingredients fall into two categories: fruits and vegetables.  In my smoothie I always add a kale leaf (cut out the vein in the middle), a banana (for sweetness) and a teaspoon of chia seeds. I also buy frozen, unsweetened strawberries and blueberries and spring of mint to keep in the refrigerator. When the mood hits,  I have a field day and raid my refrigerator! Fruit smoothie one day. Vegetable smoothie the next. I love this website, which offers over 50 great smoothie recipes! Enjoy!
