Part 1 of 3: How to Make Healthy Smoothies | Ingredient Selection and Preparation

Are you looking for a delicious and nutritious way to start your day? Look no further than a healthy smoothie! Not only are smoothies a great way to get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables, but they're also quick and easy to make. And with the help of Two Pillars' eco-friendly kitchen products, you can make your smoothie prep even easier!

Before we dive into the blending techniques and tips (which we'll cover in Part 2), let's talk about the most important part of any smoothie: the ingredients. Here are some tips for selecting and preparing ingredients for your smoothies:

1: Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables

To get the most nutritional bang for your buck, choose a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. Think berries, bananas, spinach, kale, and carrots.

2: Freeze your fruits

Frozen fruits not only make your smoothie cold and refreshing, but they also eliminate the need for ice, which can water down your drink. Use Two Pillars' ZipBag® to store your frozen fruits and keep them fresh.

3: Don't forget the protein

Adding protein to your smoothie can help keep you full and satisfied. Consider adding Greek yogurt, nut butter, or protein powder.

4: Prep ahead of time

To save time in the morning, prep your smoothie ingredients ahead of time. Use Two Pillars' Duo Cover® to reheat any frozen fruits or vegetables quickly and easily. Plus, the MoistureLock™ technology ensures that your food stays moist and flavorful.

Now that you've got your ingredients ready, it's time to blend them up! Stay tuned for Part 2 of our healthy smoothie series, where we'll cover blending techniques and tips using Two Pillars' UniLid® and Swedish Dishcloth.
