Learning about the hidden sources of MSG in one of my favorite cooking ingredients was very disheartening, but I was determined to find an alternative to what I thought was my alternative to regular bouillon. I scoured the Internet looking for “All Natural” or “Organic” vegetable bouillon with no hidden MSG, but to no avail. Every time I thought I’d found one, I was disappointed by an ingredient like “yeast extract” or “malt extract” which are MSG indicators. After a thorough search I decided to try to make it myself.

I’m always trying to think of new and delicious ways to pack in my veggies. Don’t get me wrong, I was raised in a household where you ate your veggies; my dad is a vegetarian, and my mom, while she is a big meat eater, is definitely pro veggie as well. So I definitely don’t mind eating my vegetation the “regular” way, and I rather enjoy them, but sometimes you just don’t feel like chewing all that roughage. Here is where smoothies save the day! *insert dramatic hero sound effect*
While I really liked the first smoothie recipe I posted, it wasn’t the as simple as I would have liked. It was delicious, but it required too many ingredients, and at this point in my life, simplicity is EVERYTHING. Seriously. I decided I needed to come up with a very simple recipe that is not only delicious, but pretty darn good for you. For me, a good smoothie is not sickeningly sweet, but rather subtly so, with a smooth and creamy texture that goes down easily. But most importantly, a good smoothie is GOOD for you. With this recipe, I think I’ve captured all of the components that make a great smoothie.
