After writing a review and creating a video about my experience with Purity's Organic Juice Cleanse, which wasn't positive, I was asked for a recommendation by a viewer for something better. Fortunately, I do have a recommendation for simple, healthy shakes. These are easy to make, help with weight loss, can be mixed with all kinds of fruits, and offer a better “cleanse” experience than the Purity Product Cleanse.
These healthy smoothie ingredients can be picked up from your local Spouts or any food store selling bulk grains for way less than those pre-made canned mixes or those multi-level marketing diet programs.
Want a cheap and easy breakfast? Then you'll love this healthy morning smoothie because you can make it quickly. Both my wife and I have one for breakfast 4-5 times per week. It's a great way to get fruit into your diet if you don't normally eat much fruit.
I use milk, but my wife really likes the liquid yogurt stuff called Kefir. It adds a flavorful twang. Bananas and berries are usually thrown in there, but add whatever suits you.
I use a rounded Table spoon of each of the dry smoothie ingredients and a Magic Bullet to grind and mix all this up. Check out my review of the Magic Bullet here. It's one of the best kitchen appliance investments ever and perfect for these shakes.
Step 1: Grind the Hulled Millet into powder. I guess the body breaks it down better as a powder.
Step 2: Add the Flax Seed, Psyllium Husk, and Oats together with the Millet
Step 3: Add all of this to a cup or so of milk or Kefir
Step 4: Add your choice of fruit and any other seasonings like cinnamon, vanilla, whatever.
Step 5: Mix it all up for 15 seconds or until it looks thoroughly blended and enjoy!
One thing to keep in mind about Psyllium Husk: It's an effective colon cleanser, but it also thickens the whole shake up the longer it sits. Depending on how much milk you add, and how slow you drink, you might need a spoon to finish your shake. Adjust accordingly.
I hope these ideas for low calorie smoothies are helpful to you. My body seems to appreciate these especially as a healthy morning breakfast. Tell me what you think and share your experiences below in the comments section.
