Smoothies are a great, easy way to get a day’s worth of fruits and vegetables in one sitting. Most people are lucky to eat three to five servings during the course of the whole day.
When I started making smoothies over 12 years ago, I typically used only fruit. It wasn’t long before I began to read that by adding leafy greens, you could turn a thick, fruity drink into a tasty, powerhouse of nutrition.
Do you need reasons to add smoothies to your diet? Here are several:
They’re easy to make. All you need is a basic blender, the fruit and vegetables of your choice, and water.
They’re an easy way to eat more vegetables. Once blended with the fruit, you won’t taste the vegetables.
They can easily be a meal replacement and made in just minutes. You can eat them on the go anywhere and anytime.
They’re filled with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
They support a strong immune system, mental clarity, and energy.
They can be used to speed up weight loss.
It can replace the unhealthy sweets you crave, and you won’t suffer from sugar spikes throughout the day.
You can add herbs, protein powders, spices, superfoods, and more to fit every need. The options are endless.
You can customize the smoothie to boost energy, do a detox, or lose weight.
They’re perfect for kids (or adults) who don’t like vegetables.
Forget the sugary, fattening donuts or muffins, and the high calorie, flavored coffees. Pick up some fresh or frozen produce and get started today. Start simple, and find the perfect combination that works for you and your family.
