Fruit Salad Smoothie

I began juicing and blending back in 2003 when I first set out to lose excess body weight and build lean muscle. Along with jogging and resistance training, I found myself juicing and blending my way to losing more than 30 pounds of unwanted body weight in just 10 months.

A really great way to get nutrients to absorb quickly into your body is by juicing or blending fruits and veggies before consuming them.

Blending doesn’t destroy nutrients. Rather, it releases them, which helps you to absorb them easier and more quickly. Once blended (or juiced), you should consume your smoothie quickly, because the enzymes that are released will become exposed and begin to die almost immediately. So, blend and drink!

This well-rounded fruit salad smoothie is cram-packed full of fiber, vitamins C & D, iron, potassium, calcium, and protein. It’ll replenish your body with nutrition and it’s oh, so good!

Great on hot summer days!
