Smoothies are all the rage and if I recall all my years of wellness research, smoothies have been a major deal for quick some time now. We love smoothies here on the farm, especially as the heat rises and the sun gets stronger.

Why we love smoothies…

  • Versatility: The flavors, nutrients, superfood benefits, consistency, and the whole purpose it is serving is totally customizable based on your needs, preferences, and creativity! The sky is the limit with a smoothie and we love playing with different ingredients.
  • On the Go kind of Food: We work and live on the same 117 acre farm, even so, at times it can be a wake and run out the door kind of morning. Smoothies have saved us from losing out on essential nutrients, electrolytes, and food fuel as we whiz out the door. They are so quick to make and easy to pack-no excuses!
  • Smoothie’s Nutrition potential: You can optimize the nutrition your smoothie packs by loading it up with whole plant food. Smoothies, when done right can pack any number of servings of vegetables and fruit. Add in some clean protein and healthy fat and you have created yourself a highly nutritious meal! Don’t forget about the superfood boosters, like adaptogens, chlorophyll powders, nut butters, fresh herbs & spices.
