7 Bangin, Smoothies

About the author

FitMenCook

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

When you think you may miss eating your daily serving(s) of fresh fruits and vegetables, grab a smoothie to save the day!

Below are 7 that I enjoy… Quick note: when I reference coconut milk and almond milk, I mean the UNSWEETENED, lower calorie non-dairy milk you can purchase in a carton or jug. The calories should be between 30 and 60 calories per cup.  Coconut cream refers to the dense, creamy mixture you can find in a can.
