The NUTRiBULLET is one of the best blenders for making smoothies. Click here to check the price on Amazon.
You don’t have to use a NUTRiBULLET though, you can use any blender that you already have. If you don’t yet have one, here’s a list of the best blenders for vegans.
Which liquids to use with Mindful Chef smoothies?
Which liquid to use depends on how creamy you like your smoothie and how many extra calories you want to add.
Mindful Chef recommends adding 250ml of liquid, but you could add more or less depending on how thick you like it.
Options to try include:
Water – Keeping it simple with water means no extra calories and no change to the natural taste of the fruit and veg which are all carefully crafted to taste great with just water.
Coconut water – This is a great option for tropical smoothies that have ingredients like pineapple, orange and mango. Coconut water is high in potassium so it will have extra benefits if you like to drink a smoothie after your workout.
Plant milk – Oat milk, almond milk, soya milk and cashew milk are all excellent ways to give your smoothie a nice creamy texture, as well as adding a protein boost.
There’s a huge choice of 16 smoothie flavours to choose from. The smoothies come in a pack of five, all of the same flavour. If you can’t decide which to go for, you can choose a taster bundle of 12 smoothies, which has two of each kind.
How many calories are in Mindful Chef smoothies?
