I have been experimenting with different smoothies as we get warmer down here in North Carolina. My latest creation (above) is soooooo creamy and it was packed full with nutrient dense ingredients!
When making smoothies I focus on a few main things:
1/2 a frozen banana (fun fact the serving size of many bananas in grocery stores is actual 1/2 a banana not a full one!)
Handful of raspberries
1 scoop of organic plant based chocolate protein
1 scoop super green powder
A handful of diced FROZEN avocado for the creaminess factor!
1 cup to a 1 & 1/2 cups liquid of choice (I love coconut milk or almond milk)
This smoothie is chock full of anti-inflammatory ingredients to help reduce stress in the body!
Everything we put in our mouth or on our skin is either inflammatory (aka stressful) or anti-inflammatory (aka soothing and calming to our system).
