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.

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in blender and process until smooth
  2. 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 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.

Ingredients

1 cup blueberries
½ cup strawberries
1 heaped tablespoon of protein powder
1 cup milk of your choice

Instructions

Combine ingredients in blender and puree until smooth.
