Smoothies are perhaps the best way to ensure you’re getting your daily fix of nutrients, and what better time to do that than during spring? You can pack them out with all kinds of vitamins and minerals, and tailor them to your individual needs. Here are some winning smoothie ideas that are brimming with all kinds of healthy happiness.
Creamy Strawberry and Banana
Puree a bunch of strawberries, two large bananas, blueberries, and natural Greek yogurt. Not only is this delicious and refreshing, but it’s really nutritious as well. There’s more vitamin C in a handful of strawberries than in an orange, loads of minerals and antioxidants in the banana and blueberries, and good prebiotic bacteria in the yogurt for a healthy gut. The banana and yogurt make this smoothie deliciously creamy while the blueberries add a gorgeously sharp twist.
Blend up mango, melon, kiwi, pineapple and grapes with natural yogurt. The sweetness of the fruits contrasts beautifully with the sour yogurt while it thickens the whole mixture into a creamy liquid.
Savory Power Boost
This smoothie might not rival the previous two in the taste department, but it certainly packs quite a nutritional punch. It is especially good if you suffer from autoimmune diseases as it reduces inflammation and boosts the immune system.
Mix together some cucumber, kale, spinach, turmeric, and a dash of ginger with chia seeds. It has a steady consistency and tangy taste.
