Need a quick smoothie recipe to boost your intake of greens? We have you covered. This concoction based on the Fab 4 Smoothie by Kelly LeVeque is perfect to drink on a daily basis to feed your body a healthy dose of fats, fibres, greens and proteins.
Spinach is the hero ingredient in this recipe. This leafy green is loaded with vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K1, iron, calcium and folic acid. Some associated health benefits include supporting healthy skin, moderating blood pressure, and relieving oxidative stress.
Chia seeds are also rich in antioxidants, fibre, high quality protein, and omega-3 fatty acids (which are fantastic for brain health). Don’t underestimate these little seeds – they have been linked to lowering the risk of heart disease, lowering blood pressure, and reducing chronic inflammation.
Blend the following ingredients for a light breakfast on the go or a nutritious snack to tide you over until your next meal:
• Almond milk
• Frozen Organic Spinach
• 1 scoop of protein powder (get creative with the flavours!)
• 1 tsp soaked chia seeds
• 1 tsp almond butter
