I am a complete fan of healthy smoothies. I usually go to my local Ralphs supermarket, Target or Walmart for a nice smoothie blend. I try to stay away from any smoothies that have added sugar. I think that defeats the purpose of drinking a 'healthy' smoothie.
Recently, I was introduced to Rader Farms, Fresh Start Fushion Blends, by Influenster. So I decided to give this product a try and even blend my very own smoothie in-home also.
Rader Farms is available in your local Walmart stores and this particular store only had the 35 oz bag so I purchased that one. I decided on the Fresh Start Sunrise Refresh Fusion Blend with frozen whole blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, kale, and spinach. I also purchased my very first blender!
Once I arrived home, I prepared my first in-home Fresh Start smoothie! I kept the ingredients pretty simple and I would recommend, if you like your smoothie to be a little sweet, to add a banana also.
But I used:
Then I blended the mixture for 30 seconds and that's it!
Makes 2 servings of smoothie (2 cups).
I gave it a try and noticed that the banana would have given it a little sweetness, but I am satisfied with the basic mixture for a very natural boost of fruits and veggies. It also made me realize how much processed ingredients and sugars are added to the drinks that we consume on a daily basis. This basic mixture will have to take some getting used to, if you're into sugar-based smoothies, but I enjoyed it with my lunch today!
I look forward to using my blender daily to make my smoothies instead of buying them. I would also purchase Rader Farms Fresh Start Fushion Blends again to assist with my daily smoothies, along with other combinations of ingredients!
