1. Banana-Raspberry-Flaxseed Smoothie
Raspberries are loaded with antioxidants, bananas are a premium source of potassium, and flaxseed contains essential omega-3 fatty acids.
½ ripe banana
½ cup fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
½ cup low-fat milk or milk of your choice (soy, almond, light coconut milk)
½ cup ice
- Combine ingredients in blender and process until smooth
- If the mixture is too thick, add milk to your liking. Serve and enjoy
2. Green Lemon Smoothie
In terms of packing a nutrient punch, kale is a standout among superfoods – but its taste can be a bit harsh. Lemon helps cut the grassy flavor, and apples add natural sweetness.
6 leaves romaine lettuce, roughly chopped
6 stalks kale, inner ribs removed and roughly chopped
1 to 2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 lemon, juiced
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled
½ to 1 cup water
Combine ingredients in blender. Add more water if too thick and puree until smooth.
3. Power Berry Smoothie
A sweet and slightly tart way to enjoy a heaping spoon of protein powder.
1 cup blueberries
½ cup strawberries
1 heaped tablespoon of protein powder
1 cup milk of your choice
Combine ingredients in blender and puree until smooth.
