Simple Smoothie Ingredients For Your Portable Blender
Here are some ingredients for a tasty smoothie:
Kale is loaded with powerful antioxidants, it is an excellent source of vitamin C, and can help lower cholesterol. Adding kale to your smoothies will give you an extra boost of health benefits and change your smoothie into a pretty green color!
Spinach is another great green smoothie ingredient. Research shows that spinach can lower your blood pressure, make your arteries less stiff, and give you some potassium.
** A BLENDi Tip: Pineapple is a great fruit to pair with green ingredients because the taste of pineapple will overpower the leafy taste of the greens! **
Greek Yogurt is a great source of calcium, protein, and probiotics. We recommend adding a cup of it into your smoothies! Greek yogurt will add a delicious creamy texture to any smoothie you make!
Last, but not least, is my personal favorite: avocado. Many people don’t realize it, but avocados are one of the best ingredients to put in a smoothie. Avocados make smoothies deliciously creamy and silky. They’re high in protein, potassium, and a great source of fiber. Not to mention that the best part about adding avocados in your smoothie is that you don’t even notice that it is in there!
