I have a lot of fun creating new smoothie recipes and my "Morning Matcha Green Chia Smoothie" has become one of my all time favs! It gives me that extra boost of healthy caffeine while also satiating me throughout the morning.
The Foundation of a Perfect Smoothie recipe:
I always start with 6 large ice cubes in my magic bullet cup and add just enough filtered water to cover the ice cubes. It all depends on your preferences, but I like my smoothies thick like a Wendy's frosty so I don't add a lot of liquid. I then add 2 scoops of MySmart Shake Whey Protein base made by USANA. Their Protein Bases come in Plant, Whey and Soy options. They have clean ingredients, no added sugars, are gluten free, low glycemic and Keto friendly and Paleo friendly. USANA MySmart Shakes also supply a healthy ratio of fat from coconut oil, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates, to help meet your daily macronutrient needs.
After the Smoothie Foundation it's all about Customization!
You can add things like frozen fruit, spinach, dark chocolate and peanut butter, hemp hearts ...the list is endless. USANA has some delicious flavour optimizers in their MySmart Shake line as well as a high quality protein booster for people who want more than the 18 grams per serving the base provides PLUS a fiber booster that provides and extra 12 grams of fibre on top of the 8 grams per serving of each protein base.
