Winter Friendly Smoothies

Although the weather in sunny Florida may not particularly match the Northeast or Midwest with chilling winds, snow or negative temperatures, the decreased humidity and average temperature of a chilling 70 degrees indicate one thing: eating with the seasons. Eating cold things while it’s cold outside can actually impact your body functioning at its very best.

Following these few helpful tips for your Smoothie while still keeping a completely creamy drink, minus the frozen ingredients! Farm Picked For You offers a variety of mixed vegetables and fruits to support digestion, immunity, and energy all winter long!

Pick Healthy Ingredients Wisely

Experts in Organic Food Nutrition recommend using fruits that are heavier in the winter season to keep you full and support the “comfort food” mantra. We suggest fruits such as avocados, bananas, pineapples, mangoes, oranges, and papayas. All of these fruit mixes make for a creamy shake and do not require storages in a refrigerator.

Sweet, Sour and Salt

Generally, during the colder months, we tend to think about warming, grounding and moisturizing. Try using a balance of sweet, sour and salty tastes and fewer bitter greens in your smoothie will help compensate for the change of season.

Grounding Foods Include:

  • Sweet Potato (cooked)
  • Pumpkin
  • Avocado
  • Pears
  • Beets
  • Kale
  • Oranges
  • Figs

Spices Include:

  • Ginger
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Cloves
  • Raw Honey
