Shop This Grapefruit Skinny Smoothie
I get my produce from my local farmer’s market, but Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods are great options for organic produce if you don’t have time to shop.
There’s nothing wrong with frozen produce – make sure it’s organic and contains just the fruit (no added sugars or preservatives). Even generic grocery store brands should have purely frozen fruit.
You can get organic frozen raspberries for $4 from Whole Foods’ 365 brand or Amazon Fresh.
Hemp seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fats, an essential nutrient that provides anti-inflammatory benefits. They also provide proteins and amino acids that support strong hair, nails, muscles, and skin.
I love Navita’s raw shelled hemp seeds, which are 35% off at Vitacost.
Culinary Coconut Milk
Culinary coconut milk is great for sauces, soups, and smoothies because it adds creaminess without any dairy. My favorite is So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk, which is carageenan-free and thickens up the smoothie perfectly.
Get it for 24% off at Vitacost.
You can of swap in regular coconut milk, as well.
