6 Things Missing in Your Smoothies

 

I know a lot my friends start their day with smoothies because it is such an easy to get a big portion of your nutrients for the day! 50% fruit and 50% veg is the best way – and here is some ingredients you can put in your smoothies to give yourself an extra boost!

 

Goji Berries

These wee boys include beta-carotene which helps make your skin radiant! Not only this, but they are also known to help develop your immune system. These have increased in popularity recently and you can find them in mainstream supermarkets.

I usually add these into my smoothies once blended for a bit of bite!

 

Match powder

We all know the benefits of drinking green tea but with matcha you actually ingest 100% of nutrients in the leaf. Matcha has 137 times more antioxidants than standard green tea (wow) so adding a teaspoon to your smoothies is so beneficial. It has an enquired taste but this can be easily masked with strong flavoured ingredients such as pineapple or mango. For more info on matcha powder check out my other post here.

 

Coconut Oil

Another buzz word of the health industry …..No but seriously it’s amazing. It is full of good fats and is actually useful for weight loss! It is easy to digest and is known to increase metabolism. Coconut oil is also antimicrobial and helps you absorb nutrients more easily!

 

Green Qi 

This is such a great ingredient to start your morning and easiest way to eat your greens but best colour to put in your body! It is a proprietary blend of marine greens, fruit and berry extracts, herbs and grasses. Qi means balance in Chinese, and the proprietary blend of ingredients in Green Qi are designed to help you balance out your diet. You can find out more here Modere.eu

 

 

Kombucha 

Everyone knows I’m a big fan of the probiotics (oh, you didn’t read here ;-) ) Kmobucha is a fantastic drink that many people don’t think about adding into their smoothies! Like all probiotics it aid digestion and gut health, because it’s naturally fermented with a living colony of bacteria.

 

Cacao nibs

Cacao is for all the chocolate lovers out there! Chuck it in your smoothie for a rich taste (I love it with coconut milk and raspberries) A one ounce serving of cacao nibs has 64 milligrams of magnesium!  Magnesium regulates your blood pressure and helps with muscle and nerve function!
