Here Comes a New Smoothie Idea

Making a smoothie can be a simple and nutritious replacement to juice in your daily breakfast meal; depending on the ingredients can even turn into your full breakfast! With smoothies you are able to easily change up the content every day by mixing and matching your favorite fruits, adding creaminess or crunchiness, even tossing in leafy greens. When comparing to a pre-made juice concentrate, smoothies have more added benefits. They provide natural fiber and protein, which are key nutrients most fruit juices are lacking. Fiber and protein are essential breakfast nutrients because together they help keep you feeling fuller for longer. In addition, adding a handful of spinach or other green vegetable you get a boost of calcium, folate and vitamins A, C and E.
