Local nutritionist shares unique smoothie recipes

 If you’re looking to branch out from the traditional strawberry-banana or green-blend smoothies, local nutritionist and smoothie enthusiast Rebecca Camire has some tips. 

On Saturday, March 11, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Book Cellar in Nashua, Camire will discuss and sign copies of her new smoothie recipe book, The Smoothie Reset, and offer a smoothie-making demonstration and tasting. 
“A lot of people make the same smoothie all the time and don’t know how to change it up,” she said. “The book provides a guide for how to change up your smoothies, plus 20 recipes to try if you want something different but don’t want to create your own.” 
Camire was inspired to develop her own smoothie recipes after noticing that many others lacked what she considers to be the key to a healthy, energizing and satisfying smoothie: a combination of protein, fats and carbohydrates.
To achieve this combination, her recipes follow a formula that generally consists of a protein powder; nuts, seeds, coconut or other sources of healthy fat; and fruits and vegetables to fulfill the carbs requirement. But there are still some surprising ingredients in the mix. 
“I have a cookies and cream smoothie which is made with a lot of coconut for the healthy fat and a couple tablespoons of chocolate chips for the carbohydrate. The chocolate does have some sugar, but it still works as the carbohydrate in place of a handful of berries or other fruit,” Camire said. “It’s definitely more of a dessert smoothie, but it’s healthier than grabbing a cookie.” 
The Smoothie Reset includes many other smoothies modeled after desserts, like chunky monkey, pumpkin pie, blueberry pie, peaches and cream, carrot cake, acai bowl and chocolate-covered strawberry. 
Camire said the ideas for her recipes come from everyday life; the idea for her latest creation, a blueberry and cashew milk smoothie, was sparked simply by seeing blueberry yogurt and milk on a shelf next to each other at the grocery store. Other recipes were developed as an express version of a meal. 
“There’s one recipe in the book that’s a maple bacon smoothie,” Camire said. “It sounds crazy, but I wanted to make a smoothie that tastes like the standard breakfast that people may not have time to make in the morning.” 
At the demo, Camire will also share tips from the book on how to create your own smoothies using the same formula. 
“We all have different tastes,” she said. “It’s easy to mix and match different ingredients and choose what you like.”
