These are my favorite simple smoothies to make in a hurry:
PASSIONFRUIT ORANGE GUAVA
This blend of fruit offers a surprisingly low glycemic index cocktail, which means it is less likely to cause a spike in blood sugar commonly seen with sweet drinks and may in fact improve insulin sensitivity. Packed with the antioxidant Vitamin C among other vitamins and minerals, this smoothie promotes enhanced immunity, digestion and absorption of plant-based iron for optimal energy levels. Because it is high in potassium and low in sodium, this tropical drink will also promote heart health. With a perfect dose of protein to meet the needs for recovery from exercise and muscle building, this smoothie also helps curb hunger for weight management. This is what cocktails and dreams are made of!
When I hear malibu, I immediately imagine colorful drink umbrellas and relaxation! Mangos are loaded with over a dozen kinds of polyphenols, which are unique antioxidants aimed at protecting the body from aging, cancer, diabetes, vision issues and other illnesses. Packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals alongside an optimal dose of protein, this smoothie is a natural way to supplement your diet. Peaches, offering a similar nutrient package, further enhance this smoothie’s ability to promote optimal digestion and avoid constipation. Rounded out with OptiGreens, this blend of ingredients will naturally contribute to the body’s cleansing process led by the liver and kidneys. So kick back and enjoy this antioxidant-packed drink while your body cleanses away!
CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRY
Who doesn’t love chocolate-covered strawberries?! I love this blend because it reminds us that there are healthy ways to indulge in our favorite sweets. Strawberries are a nutritional favorite because they are high in water and low in carbs with a handful of unique antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Cancer prevention, blood sugar management, improved immunity and heart health are all linked to strawberry intake. Throw in some sugar-free chocolate syrup with a perfect dose of chocolate protein and you’ve got a combination to die for!
