Smoothie Recipes For Everything

Smoothie Recipes For Everything infographic

Who knew that the solution to most our problems could be solved with a smoothie?! Smoothie Recipes For Everythinginfographic from Super Skinny Me gives you the ingredients and visually represents the amount of each that should put in. Trying to lose weight? Want to de-stress? Or maybe just want a bedtime drink. This infographic has it all.

Is there anything as versatile, adaptable and convenient as a smoothie? I doubt it. Nor are there many things as universally beloved.  Smoothies are scrumptious, indulgent concoctions that tickle the taste buds and, inexplicably, with every sip make you feel just a little bit happier and make the world a little bit friendlier. The smoothie is so much greater than the sum of it’s parts. And just to prove the smoothie can do no wrong, it can actually make you more awesome too.

Smoothies contain a smorgasbord of ingredients, and depending on what you throw in, smoothies can ascend from mere flavorsome delight and sweet-tooth satisfier to the dizzying heights of muscle-building, energizing, health-enhancing superdrink. Why eat just one superfood, when you can combine a load of goodness into one easily digestible drink? Plus, it’s super quick and absurdly easy to prepare, making it weirdly efficient not just nutritionally, but generally. Created in the 1940’s, but perfectly designed for 21st century living.

Smoothies can be tailored to suit your own needs. And while the flavors are virtually limitless, don’t just think about taste, but also why you’re making it. Do you want to lose weight or perhaps build muscle? Do you need a pick-me up or extra energy to power through an intense workout? Had a bad day and want to wind down? Or maybe you can’t get to sleep. With a little smoothie science, you can easily make a smoothie that doesn’t just taste good (or look pretty), but actually does something.

The major issue I have with this design is that the proportions visualized for each smoothie aren’t accurate to the recipe.  The sections are sized to fit the text, and have no relationship to the data.  Big mistake!

Also, the actual amounts of each ingredient aren’t shown.  The recipes are on the infographic landing page in the text portion, but aren’t included in the infographic itself.  The issue with infographics is that they need to include the complete information because they are shared all by themselves, without any accompanying description text.

HOMEMADE Nutella Recipe

Homemade Nutella

Adapted from Leite’s Culinaria

Makes about 2 cups, enough to fill two 8-oz. canning jars (pictured here).

INGREDIENTS
1 cup peeled (“blanched”) hazelnuts
12 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
2-3 tablespoons canola oil (use more oil if you’re making during colder months, to keep from becoming too solid)
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon kosher salt

PREPARATION
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Toast the hazelnuts on a baking sheet until they’re slightly browned, 12-15 minutes. If you can only find skin-on hazelnuts, either use this baking soda blanching method to peel them before toasting or wrap the warm toasted hazelnuts in a kitchen towel and rub vigorously to brush off as much of the skin as you can. Let hazelnuts cool completely.

3. Melt the chocolate in a heat-safe bowl in the microwave at medium power. Stir until it’s smooth and let cool.

4. Grind the hazelnuts and oil in a food processor until they form a paste. Add the sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt and process until the mixture is smooth. Finally, add the melted chocolate and process until it’s thoroughly blended.

5. The homemade Nutella will be a little runny but it will thicken as it cools. Use a spatula to transfer it into a jar and wait until it cools to room temperature to seal the jar. The spread will keep at room temperature for a few months.

NOTE: If the Nutella gets too solid, which can happen depending on how warm or cool your storage area is, you can heat it in the microwave for a few seconds, or re-blend with an additional tablespoon of oil to thin it out.
