Summers are made for smoothies! Just like anything you eat or drink, you can boost the nutritional value of your smoothies and even create additional health benefits for yourself through the ingredients you choose. Here are some ideas for you!
Thinking about a tummy tuck? Try this instead. Create smoothies with peaches, papaya, and pear. Add in a bit of digestion-helper ginger and you will beat bloat.
Give your skin a nutrition makeover! Make sure to pack in vitamin C and E, and calm inflammation via Omega 3. Include berries like blueberry, cherry, raspberry, and strawberry. Add in 1/4 of a skin-loving avocado along with a couple teaspoons each of wheat germ and ground flaxseed.
If you find yourself waning in the afternoon, boost your energy with a protein-packing smoothie. Include peanut butter, protein powder, and a handful of spinach.
Love your bones with a calcium rich mix of bananas, kale, Swiss chard, and a teaspoon of green Matcha tea. Use almond milk as your base.
Want glowing skin without the sun bathing? Think beta-carotene. Mix cantaloupe and papaya with orange and carrot juice.
Another thing to consider is what you use as the base for smoothies. Milk is one choice, but consider tasty coconut water, almond milk or an anti-inflammatory juice like pineapple.
