Delicious Smoothie Ideas

Did you know?
Frozen fruits are frozen very shortly after harvesting, allowing them to fully ripen and reach their nutritional peak. This means that they are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Mixed Berries Smoothie (221Kcal)
-1/2 cups of milk (can use regular milk or almond milk to cut down calories)
-1 banana
-1 ½ cups frozen mixed berries
-¾ cup Greek yogurt (can substitute for almond or coconut yogurt)

Berries are very low calorie and nutritious as they are packed with vitamins and minerals. Strawberries are high in vitamin C, as 1 cup provides 150% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Berries are also high in phytochemicals, which acts as antioxidants.

Smoothie bowls are a refreshing option for a full meal, packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Adding nuts and different types of seeds can add healthy omega-3s to the mix (promote brain health and fight inflammation)

Mangos contain a set of enzymes called amylases that break down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars. Moreover they contain plenty of water and dietary fiber, which aids in digestion.
