Vegan The Blender Girl Smoothies app is selling like hot cakes, and I'm so grateful that people are enjoying the recipes and the smoothie tips so much. I really appreciate all of your emails, tweets, instagram, and facebook posts of support. It means so much to me.
This Chai Tai smoothie is one of my favorites recipes from the app. If the world were ending, I’d make this decadent treat my finale. The incredible creaminess and blend of warm spices will make you weak in the knees. The boosters add an injection of protein and omega-3s—so you may feel a tad less cheeky as you head to heaven.
There are 100 smoothies in the app with three optional boosters that work separately and together to ramp up nutrition and/or flavor. The cool search feature lets you search for recipes by ingredient and dietary needs, or you can use the cool I feel, I need, I crave story feature to find a smoothie to suit your needs at any particular moment.
But, the feature I'm the most excited about is the smoothie glossary that shows you how to incorporate leafy greens, herbs, spices, juices, milks, superfoods, flavor enhancers, sweeteners, oils, protein powders, salt, coconut, etc for the best results. I really wanted to create a smoothie how-to app, and I feel confident that by using the recipes as inspiration, and by following some of my tips, you will be making amazing smoothie blends of you own.

*Probiotic Powder - I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.
*Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
