Avocado Smoothie

Learning to Love the Avocado Smoothie

We love avocados. Whether plain with just a sprinkle of salt and pepper, or mashed into that delectable concoction known as guacamole, in our eyes, avocados can do no wrong.

Maybe you love avocados too. Or maybe you don’t. Or maybe you think they look weird, taste weird, and have absolutely no place on your plate, let alone in your smoothie.

We know you might have seen avocados turn up in smoothies or maybe you’ve marveled at the appeal of an avocado smoothie, wondered about trying one, but then skepticism takes over. All we can say to that is: You’re missing out!

Banana Cherry and Spinach Green Smoothie

This delicious green smoothie blends two of my favorite things – cherries and vanilla! This is a great post-workout smoothie (or meal) providing almost 400 calories and 17 grams of protein in just 26 ounces of deliciousness.

The spinach helps to add some extra iron, calcium and vitamins. The spinach in this recipe contributes almost 4 grams of protein on its own! This green smoothie is also loaded with potassium that your body needs after a good workout.

Raspberry Almond Smoothie

When was the last time you really considered what a culinary marvel the smoothie is? Think about it, you can literally put an entire banana, half a box of strawberries, and a scoop of Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix into a blender, and get something you can slurp down in no time at all. And unlike fruit juices, you don’t lose any fiber from the fruits and vegetables; it’s just in a more “sippable” form. (Plus, it’s nice to know you could be improving your health as you enjoy your concoction.)

Cool and refreshing, fruit smoothies made with Caffe D’Vita’s neutral creamy Vanilla base are designed to make every sip of your blended drinks light and flavorful. Here’s one of our favorite recipes.

Spices transform smoothies into a winter treat

Transforming Cool Summer Caffe D’Vita Smoothies Into Winter Warmers

When you’re a smoothie person, winter can seem pretty bleak. The refreshing, light and cool smoothies of summer are singularly unappealing — not to mention out of season — when the trees are all bare. But be brave, and don’t pack away your blender just yet! Instead, try some new strategies for smoothies that’ll warm your bones.

Cantaloupe Smoothie Pack a Powerful Punch

You can easily add satisfying and tasty protein smoothie drinks to any lifestyle. The fresh combination of banana, cantaloupe in this smoothie packs a powerful punch of fiber, potassium, calcium, vitamin C and beta carotene. The cantaloupe is known for its low calorie content and sweet and enticing aroma, cantaloupes are the most popular kind of melons in the US. I have also tried this with half a cantaloupe that was getting a bit mushy. I added 3 bananas (without freezing them) and added some leftover white grape juice instead of the orange juice. It turned out wonderful.

INGREDIENTS:
1 banana
1/4 ripe cantaloupe, seeded and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tbsp Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Smoothie mix
6 ice cubes

PREPARATION:
Place unpeeled banana in the freezer overnight (or for up to 3 months). Remove banana from the freezer and let it sit until the skin begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Remove the skin with a paring knife. (Don’t worry if a little fiber remains.) Cut the banana into chunks; combine in a blender or food processor with cantaloupe, yogurt, orange juice, and vanilla. Cover and blend until smooth.

After School Smoothies

If you have a hard time getting your kids to nosh on nutritious after-school snacks, take heart in knowing you’re not alone. Somewhere in the back of my kids’ minds they’re convinced that fruit is reserved for breakfast, and veggies are reserved for dinner. No way!

After years of fighting the good fight against processed, quick-grab, after-school snacks, I finally learned that the easiest way to incorporate nutrition into my little busy bodies is through a smoothie they can grab and gulp on the go. The best part is, I can pack these sneaky smoothies full of nutritious goodness without them ever knowing!

Healthy, convenient and portable, smoothies are ideal fuel-on-the-go for an afternoon snack or dessert. Smoothies provide important protein, vitamins and minerals from ingredients like tofu, yogurt and fruit. For an easy breakfast or snack, try making this of Mango Smoothie

INGREDIENTS
1 cup chopped peeled mango
1/2 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup orange juice1 Tbsp Caffe D’Vita Fruit Cream Smoothie Mango Mix
6 ice cubes

PREPARATION

Place ingredients in the order listed in a blender. Pulse twice to chop mango, stir well, then blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Make a Smoothie Every Morning

Making a smoothie every morning as part of a daily routine is perhaps the best expenditure of your time and money you can make. We recommend you get a good smoothie blender, and use it every day. Smoothies give you more fiber and nutrients than juice does.

Make a routine out of it. Set apart 10-20 minutes every morning. When you do it like a pro and use fruits and vegetables you’ll get the majority of your daily nutrition all before lunch. Further, the high water and nutrient content will keep you hydrated and provide you with a feeling of well being all day.

The best way to get nutrition is from food, and by consuming a healthful smoothie every day you are getting most of your nutrition in one proven delicious drink. And with Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix you can make healthy, inexpensive smoothies.

Consuming Raw Fruits and Vegetables in a smoothie every day will do several things for you:

Save you money and time

Ensure you are properly hydrated at the beginning of the day

Provide you with the full spectrum of nature’s bioavailable vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants

Give you plenty of natural fiber to ensure excellent digestion

Provide you with the scientifically proven best “brain fuel” in the form of fructose

Help empower your immune system to protect you from illness

Why Are Smoothies So Popular?

Why are smoothies so popular? Smoothies, made from Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix and a blend of fruits, vegetables, and sometimes nuts or dairy, are the latest craze to promise the fountain of youth in a glass.

Inspired by Brazilian pureed fruit drinks, they first appeared in the U.S. in the 1930s, coinciding with the invention of blenders. However, smoothies have long been a part of other cuisines, such as Indian and Middle Eastern. In Morocco, cafés serve “panachés,” concoctions that can include milk blended with almonds and bananas.

By the 1960s, smoothies were an established part of macrobiotic vegetarian cuisine. In the 1970s, smoothies made their way to the mall, and the rest is a multi-billion dollar history. At home, anyone with a blender and some Caffe D’Vita Vanilla Base Smoothie mix can make healthy, inexpensive smoothies.

Superfoods” are foods that are rich in phytonutrients. Some are antioxidants, while others contain healthy fats, phytochemicals, or fiber. Blueberries, dark green, leafy vegetables like spinach or kale, and kiwis are among some of the more readily available examples.
In addition to using common ingredients like fruits and vegetables you can also add almond butter and flaxseed. But you don’t need exotic superfoods to make a delicious smoothie.
