Supercharge Your Smoothies

February 20, 2019

Smoothies are a  popular way to pack in a little extra nutrition. But not all smoothies are created equal.  Luckily, whipping up a well balanced smoothie is a cinch - just be sure to keep three key foods handy:

1. Start with a source of ๐ฉ๐ซ๐จ๐ญ๐ž๐ข๐ง:  Protein is a building nutrient that helps keep muscles and bones healthy. Try using plain or sugar-free Greek yogurt, a protein powder, milk or unsweetened soy milk.

2. Next, add a ๐Ÿ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ข๐ญ, ๐ฏ๐ž๐ ๐ž๐ญ๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž, or a mix of the two: Both fresh and frozen options are excellent sources of protective nutrients that prevent disease. Got leftovers leafy greens? Smoothies can be a great way to use them up before they wilt.

3. Finally, choose a high ๐Ÿ๐ข๐›๐ซ๐ž food: Fibre helps keep us fuller and improves the health of our digestive tract. Add a tablespoon of ground flax seeds, chia seeds, or hemp hearts. Or, try tossing in a small portion of rolled oats.

Check all these boxes and youโ€™ll be well on your way to making a nutritious smoothie that satisfies.
