Healthy Smoothie Ingredients
Where to purchase healthy smoothie ingredients? Here's a good question to create healthier smoothies.
I live in a small town and was not sure where to get some of the following smoothie ingredients you mentioned. Are these in health food stores? Thanks.
Pomegranate kernels, raw cacao, coconut milk powder, carob, palm sugar, lucuma. Also is the avocado flesh the skin?Answer:
As you... I live in a small town as well. But our local grocery stores are beginning to incorporate some of these different items. You can ask the store manager for them to consider bringing in some of these products. If enough people request for healthier options, the stores will provide.
Pomegranate kernels - I buy frozen pomegranate kernels from my local health food store. If you do not have any available to you, you can buy pomegranate juice concentrate or pomegranate powder to add to your smoothies. You can buy these at a discounted price at iHerb.com
Raw cacao, carob, palm sugar, and lucuma - They all can be purchased on iHerb.com
. It's nice to have the option to buy everything at the same place and save money on shipping. Plus, you get $5.00 off your first purchase!
Coconut milk powder - You can find this product at wildernessfamilynaturals.com. Or you can buy canned coconut milk and substitute the coconut milk liquid for the liquid in the smoothie recipe.
Avocado flesh is considered the "buttery" green part of the avocado. The skin is usually discarded. You can blend the avocado pit in your smoothies if you have a high quality blender. But this isn't necessary.
I hope that this helps!
