While we like to stick to the maxim that less is more, “go-to smoothie recipes” might be a rare exception—you really can’t have too many. (Part of the magic of smoothies and shakes is that they’re endlessly customizable, after all.)
But taste is just one factor in building a great smoothie, and when you’re playing around with so many different ingredients, it can be hard to know if your creation is truly balanced from a nutritional standpoint. That’s why we teamed up with our resident dietitian and VP of Scientific Affairs, Dr. Mastaneh Sharafi, PhD, RD to create a versatile blueprint for a nutritionally balanced smoothie—something that would cover the bases of macronutrients and serving sizes, while still leaving enough wiggle room to play around with different flavors.
