Here is a cool way to give your body what it needs: Toss a few specific, nutrient-dense ingredients in a blender, press “high”, pour into a glass and drink up. Bona fide smoothies, that flower the early health food movement, are a far cry form today’s heavily sweetened concoctions that certain coffee shops have popularized. Resurrect the original smoothie concept and stay satisfied for hours -using rediscovered “superfoods” like anti-oxidant rich cocoa powder or protein-and omega laden chia or hemp seeds.
This every day protein smoothie is not-too-sweet yet satiating and rich in anti-oxidants. Use your favorite unsweetened non-dairy milk such as almond / cashew / coconut or soy milk. Blend it with a well ripe fresh banana and handful of berries. Add whey protein powder for extra punch and chia or hemp seeds for healthy fats.
