The Smoothie Flowchart

The Smoothie Flowchart Sample

Bear with me, this might get funky.

See, the tricky thing about smoothies is that there are infinite possibilities.  It can be overwhelming for even the coolest of heads out there.

Continuing with (self-proclaimed) Smoothie Week, I figured I’d step up to alleviate at least some of the smoothie stagnation in the world (sorry — once I start alliterating, I’m slow to stop).

Therefore, I proudly present The Smoothie Flowchart! (8.5″x11″ one-page PDF, 919kb)

Print it out, stick it on your fridge, and may it bring you many blenders’ worth of smoothie inspiration.

If you’d like to share the smoothie flowchart on your own website or blog, please be respectful (and law-abiding) and share it by linking directly to this post. Please do not link directly to the PDF or copy the PDF to your own server.  Thanks!

Thanks for this a fun tool for making smoothies, even though it looks complicated, it’s pretty simple. Only thing missing here is adding cacao powder as an option in the “Want more flavor?” answer chart and a bubble asking “Want it sweeter?” after a taste test.
I’ve shared on my FB wall with all my smoothie-loving and smoothie-curious friends. =)

Hi there,

What a cool chart with such great information. I often am wondering what will work with my smoothies.

I just had a huge watermelon and used it for smoothies all week. I just had:
Watermelon, greek yogurt,small amount of frozen banana, pomegrante juice and flaxseed meal. After reading your chart, I probably
could have added the oats for extra fiber.

Thanks for the fabulous resource.

Looks great but there are some things I would change:
*Cut the low-fat everything, good animal fats (whole milk, preferably raw, full-fat raw milk kefir and full fat properly fermented (ie at least 24hrs) yoghurt etc) is the essential fats that our bodies reeeeally need.
See this article: http://realfoodforlessmoney.blogspot.com/2011/10/relearning-importance-of-fat.html

I would also cut the soy milk as unless soy is fermented and eaten in very small quantities (ie soy sauce as a condiment), it is toxic, see this article as an example: http://www.hippocrates.com.au/hippocrates-news-archive/health/item/96-beware-soy

And whey powder and protein powder is also toxic and denatured:

According to my research, flaxseeds and their oil is also a non-food. I go by the Weston A Price Foundation real food diet.

A lot of info, but good to have a look at if you have an open mind.
Other than that, it’s a fab flow chart, very helpful and I have printed it out for my use. Thanks!

Andrew,

Quick question…

What is the handwritten font used on most of your PDF documents.

If possible can you please share?

Glad to hear you’re planning to update this fun flowchart! I have recently switched to (raw) whole milk and I am loving it. Here’s hoping there might be a place in version 2.0 for spinach.

Thanks! Just shared your link on our blog as well! And maybe I will be inspired to break out of our smoothie routine. Great resource!

Hi Andrew,

Your blog is cool. Actually, I’m looking for smoothie recipes and I bumped to this old post.

I would like to add for veggies especially Kale or other cruciferous vegetables to be cooked or fermented to release the thyroid-suppressing properties.

Its a great find and I’m inspired to create a similar flowchart like yours. Thanks.
