Hello Healthy people!!!
When the weather gets warmer–you know it is time to break out the blender for Margarit—I mean SMOOTHIES!
I created some tasty recipes that might satisfy that sweet tooth, while getting those nutrients!
GREEN BOOST aka the best for you:
1 cup kale
1 cup spinach
½ banana (peel and chop up to put in freezer)-Frozen fruit always works a little better
Some milk so it blends well.
If you use frozen fruit you probably won’t need ice.
Handful Frozen Strawberries
½ cup frozen blackberries
½ cup blueberries
Protein Powder, Milk or juice (juice is very sugary so I would recommend milk)
½ cup Pineapple
½ cup frozen mango
Squeeze a little wedge of lime in there
Ice if you want it to be more like a milkshake
“The Siesta Key”
Half cup peaches
1/4 cup raspberries
¼ cup blackberries
Ice if needed, milk if creamier desired.
*if you are interested in a sweeter flavor invest in some agave nectar! Add a few squirts of that and you should be good.
Great healthy things you can add:
1.) Any leafy greens, I prefer fresh ones because you are exposed to more nutrients.
2.) Peanut butter or almond butter (it sweetens it up); I prefer the natural PB that you have to keep in the fridge because it doesn’t have the added sugar.
3.) Chia seeds or goji (healthy toppings)
4.) Experiment! You will find what you love the most and can stick with that.
5.) Invest in straws…if you don’t really like the flavor it makes drinking it go by way faster!
6.) Coconut oil is soooo good for you and tastes great as well, add it to your favorite smoothie and gain all the benefits of that.
Happy Eating (sipppin’) and exercising,
