Nutritious Smoothie Ideas
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day from Vista del Rey Blog! Today, we’re sharing some of our favorite smoothie recipes with everyone in our Tacoma, WA apartment community. Not only are these cold blended drinks as tasty as ever, but they are also packed with rich nutrients to keep your body healthy and happy, as you head out to serve this month in honor of MLK. Try out one of the following recipes this week!
Say hello to the tastiest breakfast you’ve had in ages! This creamy banana almond flax smoothie is simultaneously a sweet treat an a healthy way to start your day. We couldn’t ask for anything more than that! To make it, you’ll need frozen bananas, almond milk, plain greek yogurt, almond butter, flaxseed meal, honey, and almond extract.
While the pumpkin season may be over, feel free to bring it back any time with this awesome protein smoothie. One serving of this delicious smoothie is packed with 12g protein per serving, and another plus is that it has significantly fewer calories and fat than an actual slice of pie. Ingredients include vanilla greek yogurt, pumpkin pie spice, skim milk, and pumpkin puree.
Although their color may seem strange at first, green smoothies have spread across the health food and the smoothie communities for years. You may be new to the idea entirely, or you might be used to drinking one of these healthy drinks on a regular basis, but whichever category you fall into, you’ll surely love this recipe. It’s packed with pineapple, mango, and banana, and it’s a great way to get your greens in!
If you’d like something other than a plain smoothie for a change, then this blueberry smoothie bowl is sure to be satisfying for you. Blend frozen blueberries, a banana, water, cashew butter, and vanilla together to make a base similar to the consistency of a smoothie. After pouring it into a bowl, top with sliced bananas, fresh blueberries, shredded coconut, and sliced almonds. You could even add some granola if you’re looking for a sweet crunch!
We hope one of these recipes cath your eye, and that you have a week full of healthy choices!
