i look so good smoothies

smooth·ie
ˈsmo͞oT͟Hē/
noun
  1. informal
    a man with a smooth, suave manner.
    “a smoothie with an eye for a pretty girl”
  2. a thick, smooth drink of fresh fruit pureed with milk, yogurt, or ice cream

The term “smoothie” has been around since the early 20th century, but it wasn’t until 1930 that it was used to describe a drink. Early smoothies were simply fruit, fruit juice and ice, and they were an obscure concept in the United States until the natural food craze of the ’60s and ’70s. During these decades, health food stores popped up around the country, and these stores often made and sold blended fruit drinks.

The history of the smoothie is closely tied to the history of the blender, because without this appliance, smoothie making would be almost impossible. The Waring Blender, which was invented in the late ’30s, as the first blender to be used in smoothie making. More recently, the appearance of the Vita-Mix has revolutionized the world of smoothies. This blender is powerful enough to grind ingredients like raw vegetables and nuts into a smooth paste, which makes it perfect for making smoothies.

After working out hard one summer I would often go to a certain smoothie chain (name withheld to protect the innocent). One day I asked the worker behind the counter what time they had to get there in the morning to juice all of those juices behind them?  She said they are from concentrate, and she only adds water…

I was horrified.

“So you’re telling me that I am adding fake unwanted sugar into my body, and it doesn’t say this anywhere on your menu?”

I said to myself, “Self – if I had my own smoothie joint, I would never use anything from concentrate, and definitely never use sugary juice to mask my ingredients.”

Suddenly the clouds parted, the sun came out, and I’m pretty sure I heard a harp playing. Why don’t I open up my own place?! That’s how i look so good smoothies happened. My smoothies are designed to make you look and feel great from the inside out.

The reason I chose cashew milk as my mixer is because it has 50% more calcium than milk and ZERO grams of sugar per serving. No fake juice, added artificial sweeteners, and nothing from concentrate! Ever.
