3 Smoothies To Lighten Up Your Spring


Looking to lighten up this spring? Start with your meals. Smoothies are an excellent meal replacement option keeping you light on your feet, full of energy and ladened with nutrients your body craves. A protein smoothie is a great alternative for a pre and post workout meal. With busy schedules, it can be cumbersome to follow a nutritional regiment day-to-day, however, it is critical your body receives the nutrients it needs. Smoothies are packed with antioxidants, amino acids, complex carbs, healthy fats, phytonutrients and minerals.

Aside from the health benefits, they can be made quickly, are economical, and aid the body with maintaining essential nutrients. Most of the time a smoothie can just be thrown together using simple ingredients or whatever is lying around, all you need is fruit, greens, and a base. You can always throw extras in like flax, chia or protein powder. Many people use ice in their smoothies for texture, but using some frozen fruit can give you the same effect without watering it down. Try one of these recipes but don’t be scared to mix and match ingredients to make it the way you want. Add more or less base to create the texture you desire, or a scoop of protein powder is always good. Below are several tried and true recipes to start you out this spring!
