We spent 10 days with my wife's family over the holidays last year. Great for seeing the kids play with their cousins. Bad for our smoothie habit. We still managed a smoothie every day, but it was a lot harder than when we're at home.
Different blender (Blendtec vs. our Vitamix), worrying about bothering everyone with the blender noise, not having much of a schedule, etc., etc.
Most days we had smoothies that were pretty similar to ones we'd make at home. But one day I ended up pulling the rip cord on our emergency smoothie parachute and having a 1-Ingredient Super Smoothie.
Everyone, including my kids, looked at me like I had 3 heads. That's fine though. Despite being counter intuitive, I think the 1-Ingredient Super Smoothie makes perfect sense and I get that most people don't get it at first.
The one ingredient? Water.
We poured some water into my brother in law's Blendtec, hit blend for a couple of seconds, then poured it back out into our glasses and drank it.
Crazy, right? It's OK, you can be honest. I get why it seems so silly…because it IS silly. And that's a big part of why it's so useful (see below).
3 reasons why drinking a 1-Ingredient Super Smoothie is MUCH BETTER than having no smoothie at all on days when a regular smoothie is just not going to happen:
The reality of committing to have healthy smoothies for life is that there will be some days when you don't. If you're not prepared, those days can really throw your smoothie habit off track. One way to handle them is the 1-Ingredient Super Smoothie.
Have an awesome day.
