Make the perfect Smoothie more filling

Doesn’t sound that good? Perfect Smoothie?

Self-made smoothies are a perfect breakfast for everyone who like to give yourself a treat.
A lot of people asked me a lot of questions about my smoothies. I was really surprised about the big interested in how I make my breakfast smoothies. So I am really happy to share my experiences with you.

Banana Strawberry Milkshake

The Top-Smoothie Questions from you:

  1. Do you get really replete by drinking a smoothie?
  2. What are the best ingredients for a perfect smoothie?
  3. What fruits are the best for making a smoothie?
  4. Can I really add vegetables or greens in my smoothie?
  5. What do you use to get a creamy smoothie?

1. Do you get really replete by drinking a smoothie?

Most of the people are really thinking drinking a smoothie can’t make you replete until lunch time. Sure, it depends on what you are use in sour smoothie. If you are only use water, a salad leaf and an apple you will never get replete until lunch time (about 4-5 hours). But if you add nuts, seeds, chia seeds or coconut milk you will get full for sure. I don’t calculate my smoothie on calories, I normally eat until my stomach said stop. But a friend of my calculate one smoothie from me and came to 500-600 calories per jar. So in this case I drink one big smoothie in the morning and eat normal lunch 4-5 hours later.

2. What are the best ingredients for a perfect smoothie?

If you like to keep you full for longer you need to add nuts or seeds to your smoothie as well. I prefer soaked cashew nuts because they have a light nutty taste. Oats or soaked buckwheat are also a great smoothie ingredient. Soaking the nuts, seeds, grains or buckwheat overnight makes them more digestible. If you like only to provide your body with amazing healthy vitamins and minerals you can also drink a “light” perfect smoothie (only water and some fruits or greens) here and there. My preference is to use a smoothie as a breakfast so my smoothies are really substantial. I try to bring a big variety in my smoothies during the week. Sometimes I only make fruit smoothies, sometimes I mix up some kale or spinach with a banana and mix it up. Most of the people who saw my Kale smoothie talking about it: “Kale in a smoothie? That couldn’t be delicious!” Trust me! It is. Because I don’t mix up ONLY KALE. It is the combination of kale, natural sweetener like dates, some fruits and milk. Why not use greens in a smoothie to get a big burst of vitamins and minerals to start in the day?

3. What fruits are the best for making a smoothie?

The biggest tip I read in the last years was to freeze bananas. Because it is so hard to have perfect ripe banana at home all the time. I freeze them peeled in cubes when they are on the best point. Pick them up directly from the freezer is such a benefit because the smoothies get cold after mixing. I also freeze kale to have it during all seasons at home. So bananas are really really the best fruit for a smoothie. I often mix up banana with other fruits. Banana makes a smoothie also more creamy as an apple. I also often use frozen berries which I combine with ingredients to make a smoothie creamy.

4. Can I really add vegetables or greens in my smoothie?

To use a smoothie to eat more vegetables during the day is such a great idea! I need to learn who to add greens and vegetables to get a smoothie I really like to drink. Because drinking a smoothie which taste like a zucchini is not my favorite. My perfect smoothie need to be sweet. So my trick is only to add some leafs or a piece of zucchini. You don’t taste it but you get all the healthy benefits. It works really good! Greens are the best source of secondary plant substances and chlorophyll which are so healthy for your body.

5. What do you use to get a creamy smoothie?

First of all: Don’t use to much liquid. Whatever you use! Don’t use to much! There are a few tricks to get a creamy perfect smoothie. First one is to soak nuts, seeds, grains or buckwheat overnight. Second is to use ripe bananas and third is to use nut milk instead of water. Fourthly is to add avocado because avocado is one of the creamiest fruit on the planet. And my last tip is to use a good blender to mix it up. I started with a good blender but since I have my Vitamix my smoothies are on the top of creaminess.

I hope my smoothie tips will help you to prepare your perfect smoothie my friends!

The Breakfast Basis: Cashew Cream

I prepare my breakfast in the evening to have less stress in the morning very often. A light Cashew Cream is the base of my favorite breakfast variations. This cream is season independent. You can enjoy it in the summer months with cold fruits or in the winter months with baked banana or hot berry sauce. Whatever you want. The possibilities are amazing! You can store this cream up to 3 days in the fridge in a closed container.

For my it is always really special to discover new diet ideas like this Cashew Cream. You only can discover new ones when you release old habits. Sometimes it is really difficult to release them but it worth it. Trust me. Change is often a possibility to grow in your own way.

Healthy Nuts

Nut are a big component in my daily diet since years. Nuts have such a high nutrient content on a small size. You get lots of vitamins and minerals when you enjoy such a small amount of nuts a day. They are also really filling and a perfect ingredient to make you full for longer. This is really important for me because I’m a 4-times eater and don’t eat between breakfast and lunch. Cashewnuts are used very often in my kitchen. Not only for breakfasts. They are perfect for soups as well or smoothies because you get such an amazing creaminess by adding them. My absolutely favorite smoothie with Cashewnuts is this one:

The fat rate of 40% in Cashewnuts is low by comparison with other nuts like Walnuts (60%). They also contains healthy high valuable protein, vitamin B and folate.

Fresh Fruits

I love to add cherries in my Cashew Cream. I’m so happy cherry season began here in Germany. They are perfect when they are really cold and fresh so take care to use them within a few days. To avoid an attack from bacteria keep the stalk. It protect the cherry.

Favorite Topping

One more high recommendation is use almond butter as a topping. Have you ever made your own one? It’s so easy and bring you to another level of enjoyment. Trust me! I eat it nearly every day. I use almond butter as topping on smoothies, smoothie bowls or simply eat it together with apple slices. I added the recipe as well if you like to try it out. Give it a try. Please!! You won’t be sorry about it. I make mine with ground vanilla and nothing more. You don’t need to add other sweetener because the almonds are sweet itself.
