Sustainability and reducing waste. These remain two of the most important topics in the food industry. Big conversations, for sure. And every one of us can contribute to improving the situation and the planet with just a few simple and delicious steps. It’s time to get your juicing and smoothie moves going! ????
Try using produce from your kitchen, like ripe bananas, berries, etc. to make delicious juices and smoothies. While some people may be turned off by overripe fruits and veggies, the truth is this is the stage when some produce is sweetest and tastier. Below are a few quick ideas for you to try.
Banana-Blueberry-Vanilla Almond Milk Smoothie
Grab one super ripe banana, ½ cup of sad-looking blueberries, and mix them in a blender with 8oz of your favorite vanilla almond milk. No need for sugar, as your awesome smoothie will be perfectly sweet already.
Blueberries are popular, so if you don’t have any feel free to substitute them with equally delicious looking strawberries.
Speaking of raggedy looking strawberries, grab a cup and mix them in a blender with one whole squishy kiwi, the juice of one whole lime, and ½ cup of ice.
Grab 3 limp carrots (if using baby carrots, use 1 cup) and peel them, mix with the juice of 2 soft oranges. Serve on a glass, add 1 tsp of chia seeds and ice, and let it sit for 5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!
