I’m Jee, a recipe developer and the creator of Smoothies and Shakes.
As someone who had trouble finding the time and energy to eat healthy on a regular basis, smoothies were a game changer for me.
I make and drink smoothies all year round. It’s my delicious shortcut to eating (drinking) more fruits and vegetables.
My smoothie addiction started about 15 years ago when I got my first Vitamix blender. A friend gave me her used Vitamix since she got a new one. I gladly took the blender off her hands.
I was SHOCKED at how it completely pulverized everything unlike other low-powered blenders I’ve used in the past.
I made everything from soup to frozen drinks in that blender, but what I make on a consistent basis is a smoothie.
For my little niece who hates eating vegetables, I make healthy popsicles by making fruity smoothies with kale or spinach then freeze them in popsicle molds. She loves it.
(The trick is to make the smoothie a color that’s not green, which she associates with vegetables. Blueberry smoothies with kale are a hit since the blueberry color hides the green.)
There was a time I juiced instead of blending and that was a mistake since I was getting rid of the fiber, which is an essential part of what makes a drink so healthy.
My freezer is always packed with frozen fruit and greens so I can make a smoothie whenever I want.
Each recipe is tested until I’m completely happy with it and I consult a nutritionist to make sure it’s not just delicious but good for you.
