Shake-Up Showdown: Smoothie Recipes From The Kitchen

 

Smoothies: You might say we're fans, here at Meghan Inc. headquarters.

On any given day in the kitchen, you can find at least three of out of the four of us blending up our breakfasts (and sometimes even lunches or snacks.) Why? Because they're so delicious -- not to mention nutritious -- and also a meal planning dream. On those days when you just don't know what to make, a smoothie can be the perfect solution. Throw your goods in a blender and you have an instant meal -- true fast food at its very, very best.

What is even more awesome is that there are literally infinite options, so you can easily put your own spin on your smoothie based on what you love and what you have in the fridge and pantry.

Today, we're taking you on a tour of some of our team's favourite smoothie recipes.

The Meghan Inc. Team: This Is What We're Drinking

 MEGHAN TELPNER: QUEEN BLENDSTRESS

MeghanThumb

I LOVE MY SMOOTHIE BECAUSE: This blend has all the benefits of a green smoothie without tasting too green. This is thick with all the good fats and decadent tasting. The flavour isn't too strong, which means you can have this one over and over and not get tired of it.

MY SECRET WEAPON INGREDIENT IS: The gallon of love, of course. Our food will only heal us if we prep it with loads of love and drink it up with an attitude of gratitude. Love is the secret weapon ingredient in all from-scratch cooking.

MAEVE GALLAGHER: SHAKE-A-TECHY-TAIL-FEATHER BLENDER BABE

Maeve Gallagher

I LOVE MY SMOOTHIE BECAUSE: It tastes like what I imagine heaven tastes like. You can't go wrong with frozen avocado in a smoothie -- it's a life-changing ingredient. A little homemade vanilla extract goes a long way, too!

MY SECRET WEAPON INGREDIENT IS: Wild blueberries! Any wild fruit would taste amazing, but wild blueberries are especially powerful. Full of antioxidants and phytonutrients, those bad boys can help resurrect you after a weekend of overindulgence.

JACLYN DESFORGES: BLENDER BUFF

jaclyn thumbI LOVE MY SMOOTHIE BECAUSE: Okay -- this isn't exactly a 'green' smoothie (more like a delectable banana milkshake.) But its deliciousness will always have a special place in my heart for being the only thing I could stomach many days during my first trimester of pregnancy!

MY SECRET WEAPON INGREDIENT IS: Tahini! Tahini, also known as sesame seed butter, is a bioavailable source of calcium. That makes it a bone-building power food, sans the gunk that comes from that other source of calcium. Sesame is also a great source of selenium, giving us extra shiny hair -- so that's a sweet bonus, too.

andrea thumbI LOVE MY SMOOTHIE BECAUSE: I love this smoothie because it's lean and green, quick easy and delicious -- pretty much all of the qualities a smoothie should have!

MY SECRET WEAPON INGREDIENT: Hemp hearts make the world go 'round! Their high level of omega-3 fatty acids keeps inflammation down and brain power high. The good fats make you feel fuller longer and provide a steady energy flow.

    I'm having trouble wrapping my head around frozen avodaco. I didn't know you could do this. Do you need to scoop it out before you freeze it? If so, how would you store it?

    I love your site, I love your message, I love these smoothie ideas... I can't wait to try them. Especially the Cinnamon Sesame Shake. Thank you for sharing. My favorite smoothies usually start with a ripe banana so I don't need to add any type of sugars. Plus it's a good way to finish off a banana if it gets past yellow. If it's starts to gets spotted I won't eat but I'll drink it.
