Let’s face it, there are tons of smoothie recipes out there, but here’s the thing, you don’t have to put a ton of ingredients together! That goes without saying, right? When you create a recipe with specific ingredients, you not only make sure that it tastes delicious but is also healthy for you. Thanks to Fitness Magazine, we have the ultimate smoothie recipe in our hands. Take a look below as we’ve added five specific ingredients below that you need to add to the mixture ASAP.
Banana: Bananas contain fiber, potassium, and vitamin B6; Together, this helps maintain healthy bones, kidneys, and the cardiovascular system.
Ginger: Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties, but in addition to that, it’s also a fantastic digestive lollipop.
Almond Butter: Almonds add protein and release various minerals like magnesium and manganese. Both protect against cardiovascular diseases, reduce hunger, and can help with weight loss. Sounds great to me!
Hemp Seeds: Hemp seeds are an incredible source of vegetable protein, and not just because they are easily digested. You see, they have omega-3 fatty acids that can have anti-inflammatory effects, yes thanks.
Water: Use water as a base instead of coconut water, a high-calorie juice, or highly processed nut milk. Not only will this help you save calories, but it will also help hydrate your cells and aid your digestive system. Water, who would have thought? I’m kidding, I’m kidding
