Homemade Method

Get your smoothie on!

It’s easy to buy everything you need for your smoothies from organic and local health food stores or most supermarkets. Try to buy your fruits and vegetables from farmers markets, small local stores or use a CSA delivery service, because they are more likely to be fresh and in season, which maximizes nutritional value and taste!

In case you prefer the convenience of shopping online, here are some vetted brands and products we recommend for your specialty smoothie ingredients and equipment. Start with 3-4 items and build your pantry from there.
