5-minute Spinach Smoothie

The title says it all, 5-minute Spinach Smoothie is one of my go-to green smoothie “recipes” that I make if I’m in a bind and don’t have all the ingredients to make my Stirpped Green Smooothie, if I’m in the mood for something else, or if I want to share this smoothie with friends and family who are new to the whole “green smoothie thang”. Just like my Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie, this 5-minute Spinach Smoothie is great to ease into the world of green smoothies. 5-minute Spinach Smoothie | nutritionstripped.com/5-minute-spinach-smoothie Spinach is a great green to use for beginner green smoothies for a couple reasons, 1) it’s easy on your blender. Most of my clients and readers ask me about what greens they can blend in standard blenders, well spinach is the one! Spinach is naturally very delicate in texture, but also flavor which brings me to reason numero dos why this smoothie is great for beginners. Reason 2) it tastes great! The slightly sweet and subtle flavor of spinach goes really well with fruits, healthy fats like almond butter or avocado and especially with plant-based protein powders- it all blends beautifully together. …

Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie

I think after the eventful week I’ve had here on Nutrition Stripped, it was only fitting for the first recipe to share on “the new look” of Nutrition Stripped to be a green smoothie…had to. This smoothie is also perfect for all of your green holiday celebrations this St. Patrick’s Day! My Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie is perfection, absolute nourishing perfection and so deliciously simple to make! I love this smoothie for breakfast, a snack, or even with a meal for a boost of those greens I simply adore.

Alright everyone, prepare yourself for one of the most refreshing, creamy, spring-like smoothies you’ve ever tasted. Bold statement I know, it’s that good. This is my go-to smoothie in the spring when I want something filling, but also “light” on my digestion to keep my energy levels up when I’m out and about, writing, shooting, etc. This is definitely a meal in a glass as it contains healthy fats, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates all in one lovely package- if you’re looking to make this a snack, simply cut the ingredients in half or save half for later!

Blueberry Banana Crunch Smoothie Bowl

Blueberry Banana Crunch Smoothie Bowl has become a new favorite variation on the Stripped Green Smoothie Bowl, which is basically my way of eating “ice cream” for breakfast- although much healthier! If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram and Facebook you know all too well that I adore my smoothie bowls in the morning especially post-workout. They’re creamy, cold, and thick enough to eat with a spoon just like ice cream or chilled yogurt except sans dairy and processed sugars. More importantly this Blueberry Banana Crunch Smoothie Bowl is very nutrient dense with added antioxidant rich blueberries topped with crunchy homemade granola.

Two of my favorite baked goods growing up were blueberry muffins and banana nut muffins- they were moist, starchy, and sweet (i.e. loaded with refined sugars!). What could be better than combining those two favorite breakfasts of mine into one nutrient dense bowl of goodness? I’m combining these two muffin classics with a healthy twist; and making them into one of my green smoothie bowls loaded with antioxidant rich blueberries, bananas, healthy fats, protein, and a sweet crunchy topping to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Stripped Green Juice

You’re all familiar with the Stripped Green Smoothie by now, and if you’re not, what are you waiting for? I share all things green smoothies and why I adore the signature smoothie of Nutrition Stripped. Today I want to focus on drinking something else that’s green, the Stripped Green Juice! Oh yes, get ready for another veggie filled elixir to try out. In my previous post, we discussed all things Juicing 101 so I thought it was perfect timing to introduce you to something else I eat/drink on a weekly basis.

Stripped Green Juice | nutritionstripped.com

I get it, drinking something green isn’t necessarily the “norm” in our society, but drinking your greens whether in a smoothie or juice has been the buzz for quite some time, especially around New Years, for good reason. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are nutrient dense in comparison to any breakfast cereal out there, which is a Standard American Diet (SAD) meal in the morning; and they’re loaded with fiber (again something that’s lacking in our SAD diets).

Juicing 101

Today, I want to focus on a topic I have readers, clients, family, and friends ask me about all the time… juicing. This Juicing 101 guide is all about how to’s, what to juice, and reasons why to juice! You may want to bookmark this in depth post for later referencing or to share it with your loved ones who are interested in juicing. Also, stay tuned for my favorite classic green juice recipe early next week.

Juicing 101| nutritionstripped.com

Let’s start by breaking it down to basics first. What is juicing? Juicing involves a process where the natural liquid, vitamins, and minerals are extracted from raw fruits and vegetables. This process strips away any solid matter from the fruits and vegetables and you’re left with liquid only. This liquid isn’t just any liquid, it’s loaded with the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, and phytonutrients all in one easy-to-sip hydrating drink.
