The key to a good smoothie is the ingredients

Chef Timothy Moore-160No matter what plan you've tried, losing weight is not all that easy. A smoothie – if it's prepared the right way – can be a big boost.

This week, I'm going to share with you some of my world-famous smoothie recipes that have helped many in their quests to feel better and return to that youthful look.

These smoothies are fruit rich and blended with water instead of yogurt and milk. Convenient, ultra-fast and energizing, they can be used as a meal replacement. Choose your fruits carefully, because our bodies are made differently.

Fruits, of course, have a lot of natural sugar. Moderation must be the key in keeping blood sugars under control, even if you're not diabetic. If you are diabetic, you should use fruit smoothies as meal replacements only as needed.

Some of us have food sensitivities, allergies or other health concerns that require us to avoid or limit our intake of certain foods. Apply this knowledge to everything you prepare or ingest. Experiment with adding similar foods until the taste is perfect for you.

Remember this: The keys to a great smoothie are with the maker of the drink and the chosen ingredients. The fresher the ingredients, the better the beverage. So enjoy the smoothies and enjoy life again.
