Keri Glassman’s Smoothie Recipes

Ingredients

Basic Smoothie Formula
1 cup liquid (almond milk)
2 servings of a combo of fruit + veggies (I always suggest at least one of these be a green but if you’re really in the mood for a fruit smoothie then two portions of fruit is ok, but aim to add in a green as an “extra”)
1 serving Fat
½ to 1 scoop protein powder (not absolutely necessary but I often recommend)
1 to 2 “Extras” (Extras could be for a pop of flavor such as cinnamon or basil, for upping the calories or fat or a booster for a specific purpose such as maca powder or spirulina.)

Go-To-Breakfast Smoothie

Examples of smoothies for specific needs using these swaps

If you want to make a post-workout smoothie:
Swap in frozen cherries for your fruit and add cocoa powder and perhaps vanilla too as your “extras”. Research shows that the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds in cherries may help relieve exercise-induced muscle pain, damage, and inflammation. Cocoa powder is also packed with antioxidants and beneficial for post workout recovery. Also, add 1 scoop protein powder.

For a gut health smoothie:
You may want to try raspberries for your fruit and flaxseeds for your fat. Both are high in fiber and good for feeding your good gut bacteria. This is key for overall health including a healthy immune system.

For a beauty smoothie:
Try blueberries, butternut squash and collagen. Vitamin C in the blueberries may help with collagen production , Vitamin A in the butternut squash may help with skin repair and skin cell turnover. Added collagen, which may aid in skin elasticity, will make this the ultimate skin health breakfast smoothie. Wanna be a smoothie pro? Check this out .
