Why smoothies are good for your health?

Packed with phytonutrients from the greens, your immune system will get a nice boost to help it function optimally. Unlike juices, smoothies consist of the entire fruit or vegetable, skin and all, and contain all of the fiber from the fruits and vegetables.

However, the blending process breaks the fiber apart (which makes the fruit and vegetables easier to digest) but also helps create a slow, even release of nutrients into the bloodstream and avoids blood sugar spikes.

Reduces lower risk of heart attack and stroke. The fruit is a good source of many cardio-protective nutrients such as fiber, vitamin C, folate, and potassium. There’s also evidence that fruit packed with flavonoids – apples, oranges, grapefruit, and blueberries – may guard against ovarian cancer.

Tips for a healthy smoothie

  • Choose a whole fruit- Enjoy the naturally sweet taste of fruit; avoid adding honey, agave, or maple syrup. Adding a frozen fruit will help make your smoothie thick.
  • Increase fiber- Adding raw oats (one-quarter cup), raw oat bran (two tablespoons), psyllium husks (two tablespoons), or chia seeds (one tablespoon) will boost fiber and thicken your smoothie, increasing its staying power.
  • Blend in healthy fats- To increase your intake of plant-based omega-3’s, add one tablespoon of ground flax, chia seeds, hemp seeds, or a teaspoon of flax oil. Or, try a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter or one-quarter of avocado for an infusion of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and, in the case of avocado, the B vitamin folate.
  • Protein- One cup of milk, ¾ cup of plain yogurt, or one cup of soy milk adds 8 g of protein to smoothies (Greek yogurt delivers 18 g per ¾ cup)
  • Consider Greens
