A SMOOTHY FOR ALL CASES
Smoothies can do wonders. You can smooth the skin, make the hangover disappear, make it nicer, leaner or more muscular. There's a drink to suit every purpose, whether low carb, metabolic, detox, pre-or post-workout smoothies - the recipe list is endless.
Smoothies are healthy super drinks and also easy to digest. They are super-fast and easy to prepare, nutritionally intelligent and therefore perfect for the 21st century. They can be individually adapted to any need and the combination options are endless. Although sometimes they look a bit strange, smoothies are primarily effective.
First, you have to be clear about what you want to do with the smoothie. Do you want to wake up? Or a smoothie for before the workout? Do you want to get a smoothie to slim or build a smoothie to build muscle or a smoothie that gives you power for a high-intensity workout? Or do you have sleep problems and are looking for a solution? All this can be treated with smoothies or with cleverly chosen ingredients. Just one thing in advance: Smoothies do not always taste delicious, but they bring something!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SELF-MADE SMOOTHIES?
  • They are much cheaper than bought
  • The quality is much better than from instant smoothies because the ingredients are fresh
  • They contain no hidden ingredients like sugar or flavorings
  • So, do the favor and mix it yourself.
SMOOTHIES RIGHT SWEET
As far as the sweetness of the smoothie is concerned, it often depends heavily on the ripeness of the fruit you put in it. Smoothies with banana are usually sweet by nature. If only relatively sour fruits such as berries, grapefruit or similar are in there, then you can of course still sweet to taste. 

THE RIGHT MIXER FOR SMOOTHIES
If you have already set the task to become a smoothie professional, then you cannot save at one point in any case. I flicked about 200 € for my smoothie mixer, but the part also has 3 pHs, so 36,000 revolutions per minute. Makes me pretty much, to be honest. Can you perhaps compare it to men's cars and motorcycles - to women it's just the blender?  
Only at such a high speed is the mixer capable of e.g. In green vegetables, break up the cellulose walls of the plant cells and thus get the full vitamins from green vegetables. So was gets the body in such a highly concentrated form usually never, so also first slowly start with the green smoothies, because the body and stomach must first adjust to this vitamin bomb and adjust the digestion.
A good entry-level recipe for green smoothies, in my opinion, is apple, spinach, and ginger.
You jog daily and just do not lose weight? 
SMOOTHY UNITS
Before we start we would like to explain the units of measurement. Since we have found most of the recipes only with American units and there is only the quantity "Cup", we have summarized again briefly how much 1 Cup is converted:
How much is 1 cup?

water
1 cup = 240ml
3/4 cup = 180ml
1/2 cup = 120ml
1/3 cup = 80ml
1/4 cup = 60ml

Flour/powder sugar
1/8 cup ...... 15 grams
1/4 cup ...... 30 grams
1/3 cup ...... 40 grams
3/8 cup ...... 45 grams
1/2 cup ...... 60 grams
2/3 cup ...... 75 grams
3/4 cup ...... 85 grams
1 cup ...... 120 grams

If the whole thing is too complicated, take a large coffee mug (230 ml) as a standard measure and measure with it. Then you can fill in a normal measuring cup 1/2, 3/4, etc. cup of water, mark and then use it as the basis of the fair.

18 MAKING SMOOTHY RECIPES FOR YOURSELF
Long story short: Here we have put together our absolute Top 18 Best Smoothie Recipes for any purpose. Blend it, baby!

1. PRE-WORKOUT SMOOTHY FOR BEFORE TRAINING
One thing is clear, no power without success in the workout. That means: You need enough energy to properly execute heavy weight training. Without food there is little known, at least that's how we are. If you do not eat anything before the workout, you will be exhausted after 10 minutes and you will not be able to do the exercises cleanly - very bad for the joints! That's why it says before: food, food, food, but what? The ideal pre-workout snack should be easy to digest (so you do not get a stomach ache during your workout) and rich in carbohydrates. You should take the smoothie at least 30 to 60 minutes before your workout. It should not be a meal replacement, but the smoothie should serve to fill the stomach a bit and give you strength during exercise. For maximum performance, keep it small and lightweight.

Ingredients:
½ cup frozen strawberries/blueberries / mixed berries
½ banana
½ cup low-fat Greek yogurt
¼ cup of milk (skimmed milk/almond milk/soy milk) - until the desired consistency is reached.
3-4 ice cubes

2. POST-WORKOUT SMOOTHY FOR AFTER TRAINING
After tiring workout, it is important to provide the water & glucose stores as a jump start for muscle regeneration. Therefore, a post-workout smoothie should consist of carbohydrates and a lot of protein, it should be easy to digest and quickly processed by the body. Just like the Pre-Workout Smoothie, the Post-Workout Smoothie is not about to saturate, it has purely functional purposes. Be sure to take it within 30 minutes to 2 hours after the workout. If you have been training at moderate to high intensity, then you should have taken it after 60 minutes at the latest. Better within 30 minutes to regenerate the body.

Ingredients:
1 pinch of cinnamon (helps with muscle regulation and keeps blood sugar levels constant)
1 tablespoon peanut meal (or almond paste)
1 medium-sized banana (also frozen, adds creaminess!)
1/3 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 Cup Almond Milk (unsweetened! New, even from Provamel!)
1 cup of ice cubes
To increase the nutrient content, you can add a handful of TK spinach or kale.

3. SMOOTHY FOR MUSCLE BUILDING
Building muscle does not just work with strength training. In order to make the muscles grow, the body needs sufficient protein otherwise nothing will grow there. It has been scientifically proven that consuming a specially designed after-workout smoothie boosts protein synthesis and speeds muscle recovery. In other words, this smoothie helps to stimulate muscle growth.


Ingredients:
1 scoop of whey protein powder (chocolate)
225 ml low-fat chocolate milk
1 medium banana (frozen)
2-4 ice cubes

4. SMOOTHY TO REMOVE
I have never been so fit as now !!The goal here is to create a smoothie that is saturated but low in calories. In contrast to the pre- or post-workout smoothies, this is meant to replace a meal. That's why it should be nutritious and contain both carbohydrates, protein and a little fat. Fat is important because it helps satiety, as well as protein.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1 scoop of whey protein powder
½ medium sized banana
1 cup of frozen mixed berries
¾ cup of milk (skimmed milk/almond milk/soy milk)
3-5 ice cubes
The mixed berries (carbohydrates) provide energy, are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and are a natural sweetener. Chia seeds are incredibly rich in omega-3 fatty acids (healthy fats), protein, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Chia seeds also contain a super high level of soluble and insoluble fiber, making them incredibly saturated, making them a great addition to low-calorie smoothies.
Ingredients to make the smoothie richer: chia seeds, ground psyllium, whey protein, low-fat Greek yogurt.

5. SMOOTHY FOR A FLAT BELLY
Here are the best exercises for athletic training with instructions
To create a flat stomach smoothie, you need to add a MUFA (Monounsaturated Fatty Acids) source. They support weight loss, e.g. low-fat yogurt. Research shows that with the help of MUFAs and yogurt the goal is to reduce belly fat and lose weight faster and also helps to minimize bloating - super or?

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. cold-pressed organic linseed oil (MUFA)
1 cup of frozen unsweetened blueberries
3/4 cup milk (skimmed milk/almond/soy)
1/4 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
Which MUFAs are suitable for smoothies: flaxseed oil, avocado, nut butter (such as peanut butter, cashew butter), dark chocolate chips.

6. LOW CARB SMOOTHIE
Here, high-quality protein is paired with a carbohydrate source (i.e., fruit or vegetable). To sweeten the smoothie is best used natural sweeteners such as Stevia or Splenda.

Ingredients:
1 scoop of protein powder

1 cup of cold water
¼ cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 packet of Splenda sugar substitute

THE BASIC INGREDIENTS FOR SMOOTHIES
Here are the blocks for smoothies listed. These basic ingredients are not only pretty to look at and taste delicious, they also offer significant benefits for your health and fitness.

YOGHURT IN SMOOTHIES
Yoghurt contains a lot of protein, calcium and is good for the stomach because of its probiotics. The best is low-fat versions or Greek yogurt. The full-fat yogurt is rich in calories. Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in carbohydrates. To increase the protein content of a smoothie, take 1/4 to 1/2 cup low-fat or Greek yogurt, tofu also works.

MILK IN SMOOTHIES
Milk is another good source of protein, calcium and other nutrients. Skimmed milk is best. If you cannot do that, you simply take soy, rice or almond milk.

PROTEIN POWDER IN SMOOTHIES
Whey Protein is a wonderful way to increase the protein content of a smoothie and to fill you up. It's great for low-calorie smoothies and, of course, ideal after a workout.

FAT IN SMOOTHIES
Although fat has a bad reputation, there are healthy fats the body absolutely needs. In addition, fat helps you to feel full. Low-fat products do not fill you up and your body needs fat to absorb important nutrients. Sources of healthy fats: fish oil, avocado, nuts, flaxseed, peanut butter and coconut oil.

BANANAS IN SMOOTHIES
Bananas are rich in potassium, vitamin B6, and other nutrients. They fill you up, give the smoothie sweetness, a creamy consistency and bind the ingredients together.

BERRIES IN SMOOTHIES
Berries are a powerhouse of antioxidants, packed with vitamin C and phytochemicals that provide a variety of health benefits. They are naturally sweet and fresh or frozen available.

TEA IN SMOOTHIES
Tea is a healthy and delicious way to give the smoothie a flavor. Green tea, rooibos, peppermint, etc. also offer various health benefits. Try freshly brewed tea with ice cubes or tea powder.

JUICE OR WATER IN SMOOTHIES
A smoothie that is not cold & smooth is not a real smoothie. Take plain water or frozen fruit juice, green juice, tea, coffee, yogurt or milk. Also try frozen bananas, which gives the smoothie extra creaminess.
