Healthy meal prep for fit bodies: smoothies

Elevate the classic morning meal with DIY cashew-macadamia milk.

Athletes know that planning out meals in advance is one of the keys to success in achieving wellness goals. That’s why we created our healthy meal prep lunch series. Now, we’re making breakfast easier than ever.

Liquid diets don’t work, but liquid meals can certainly be a part of the high-performer’s diet. However, there’s a right and a wrong way to do smoothies. “These recipes push the envelope by incorporating unexpected veggies like cauliflower and fennel,” says New York City-based recipe developer Julia Gartland. “They’re perfect for meal prep because you can assemble the ingredients all at once and then store them in packets in the freezer to blend when you're ready.”

Make the cashew-macadamia milk.

FIT CHEF HOW-TO: Make creamy, dairy-free milk.

Homemade nut milks can be a pain since they often require hours of soaking. However, you can make a delicious version in a fraction of the time by using cashews and macadamias. These nuts require just 15 minutes of soaking time and are softer and creamier than others varieties like almonds.
