3 Bomb Non-Dairy Smoothies

Smoothies are one of the quickest and easiest ways to flood your body with essential vitamins and minerals. Since being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s I’ve been a total sucker for meal choices that strengthen my immune system. A nourishing meal, plus superfoods in less than five minutes? Yes, please. Oh and did I mention that cleanup is a total breeze? Seriously, these factors alone, make smoothies a total no-brainer for me! Holla!!!!!

I usually have one per day, as a meal. Please don’t make the mistake of thinking smoothies are just for breakfast. Not true! They’re flexible enough that you can have them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, depending what you have going on that day. I prefer to make them myself, that way I know exactly what I'm getting. I have food allergies so this is a big deal to me!!!!

3 Bomb Non-Dairy Smoothies

Best of all, there’s no fancy equipment required. However, feel free to go all out and purchase a super high powered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec (like I did), but it’s certainly not required! All you really need is a blender, some fruit/vegetables and a non-dairy base (due to food allergies, I roll non-dairy, but this is your call) and some protein powder, if you’re into that sort of thing. 

I started with fruit only smoothies then slowly began adding in vegetables like cauliflower, zucchini, and sweet potato, plus superfoods. However, you want to enjoy the flavor, so be careful NOT to make something that you refuse to drink more than once. That pretty much defeats the purpose.
