Powered by Mom LOVES her yummy and healthy smoothies but it’s time to shake it up a bit (pun intended :))
As many of you may already know I drink a protein fruit smoothie almost every day. In fact my smoothies don’t just have fruit in them I sneak spinach or kale in there too and cover up the green color with blueberries, raspberries and blackberries and sweeten it with bananas. I don’t have to hide the fact that there’s spinach or kale in there any more since my hubby and daughter now know that. I hid it the first time I gave it to them so they wouldn’t know there was spinach in it and they couldn’t tell when they tasted it! Yes I was sneaky but now that I have my family on a routine to drink our nutritionally power packed smoothies I don’t have to hide anything.
It is time however to shake it up a bit as I think we all need a change and trying out some different yummy flavors is always fun. The latest, delicious concoction is a mango, banana smoothie with mango coconut water oh yum yum! Coconut water hydrates, tastes good (especially the mango coconut water) is high in potassium and has many, many more benefits. Like my regular smoothies I still put in flax seed or flax seed oil, vanilla protein powder and a prebiotic powder to help out the digestion. It’s still full of some great antioxidants, vitamins and more easily and quickly made like all smoothies.
I think I may mix it up even more and make it more like the one in the picture above that has orange juice in it (you can see that recipe HERE) or I may throw in a whole orange as I like pulp 🙂 I also want to have some fresh mint with it now that would be refreshing indeed! You can mix up the smoothies any way you like with whatever fruits (or sneak in some veggies) that you want , change it up and make it interesting but trying to throw in some extra nutrition like some antioxidants (blueberries are good), flax seed/oil, chia seeds and use a good quality protein powder. You will have one tasty smoothie that packs a nutritious punch and that’s my kind of drink.
