Spring Smoothies

Sometimes it can be overwhelming trying to fit in all of the supplements, fruits and vegetables recommended in a healthy eating program. All healthy diets should consist of five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day, and in some cases I also recommend ground flax seeds, wheat germ, flax or fish oil. The challenging part is trying to fit in all of these foods into your daily routine.

If your lifestyle is hectic and you’re not meeting your daily nutritional needs, I have a solution! Smoothies are an easy way to pack in nutrition. Making them at home is a much smarter option than purchasing at a smoothie shop, where they often contain too much added sugar.

Smoothies are perfect for breakfast, snacks, or as a post workout recovery meal (with added protein). You can even drink them in the car or at your desk. I sprinkle a few vegetables in mine; you cannot taste spinach when it is very cold!

Here are a few of my favorite smoothie recipes. Enjoy!

 

Fruity Protein Shake

½ cup orange juice

½ cup low fat or fat free vanilla yogurt

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 cup frozen mixed berries/pineapple or mango

2 tbsp strawberry flavored fish oil

½ cup ice

2 tbsp. ground flax seeds

Blend all ingredients until smooth

 

Banana Split Smoothie

1 banana (strawberries can be used as substitute)

1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder

1 cup milk

1 tsp. cocoa

1 tbsp. natural peanut butter (optional)

1 cup ice

Blend all ingredients until smooth
