It’s time to SUPERCHARGE your smoothie!
Today, we’re sharing some of our favorite ways to boost your daily blend of goodness!
The perfect base for a body-loving smoothie starts with unsweetened almond milk (coconut water or hemp milk are great options as well) and 1 scoop of organic, non-GMO Perfect Fit Protein. This simple mix tastes oh-so-good on its own with major muscle recovery benefits, but for a lil’ extra boost choose two to three of the nutrient-packed ingredients below!
Adds a zesty kick! Ginger fights inflammation, contains cancer fighting compounds, and even soothes an upset stomach! A little bit of grated or powdered ginger works well with tropical flavors like pineapple, mango and coconut. Try it out in our Pineapple Princess smoothie HERE featured from your 8 Week Bikini Program!
Adding healthy fats increases your feeling of satiety which helps keep snack attacks at bay… and makes your smoothies taste amazing! Stick to 2 tsp or less. Go for virgin, unrefined coconut oil for the biggest nutritional boost!
In addition to the benefits from healthy fats listed above, avocado is high in Vitamin E, which boosts immunity and works as a skin-loving antioxidant. 1/4 of an avocado is perfect to transform your smoothie into a decadent and extra beneficial treat! TIU TIP: Use frozen avocado for a chilled, creamy texture!
Hello, green-powered goodness! Spirulina is an excellent source of antioxidant activity from beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, and lutein! The flavor blends really well with Chocolate Perfect Fit Protein. Start with about 1/2 teaspoons! Try out our Spirulina Smoothie HERE!!
These hard working superstars add a boost of beautifying omega-3 fatty acids along with a mix of magnesium, potassium and phosphorus! Use about 1 Tbs per smoothie!
We LOVE cinnamon in our smoothies!! This powerful antioxidant has been shown to help keep your blood sugar within a healthy range! It adds wonderful flavor and even a bit of sweetness without added sugar. A few dashes is perfect.
No need to cook em’! Oats are a wonderful source of phosphorus, an important element for healthy bones and teeth, along with potassium which is essential in post-workout recovery! 1 to 2 Tbs will add extra thickness to your smoothie. Try it out in our Totally Toning Shake!!
These powerful gems give your smoothie an added boost of fiber along with omega-3 fatty acids. Plus it gives your smoothie a nutty, earthy flavor! 1 Tbs is ideal! You can add this to any of your Perfect Fit Protein smoothies!
A high fiber content (1 Tbsp. contains 5 grams!) along with protein and healthy fatty acids means you’ll squash cravings and diminish hunger longer! Chia also adds a thicker consistency to smoothies! YUM.
Cacao nibs give your smoothie a strong chocolate flavor that’s almost coffee-like. They’re a great source of magnesium, an essential mineral that contributes to healthy muscle function, stress reduction, and can even ease PMS. I never go without cacao nibs in a smoothie. I’m obsessed!!! They also add a little crunch factor! 1 Tbs is all you need :) Cacao nibs are in one of our go-to smoothies… Blueberry Bomb!!
Give your body an added dose of green power! Spinach is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients… and one to two handfuls won’t alter the flavor of your smoothie. You can also swap kale for spinach in any green smoothie!
Buzz buzz… This highly nutritious superfood is a good source of zinc, iron, copper and magnesium. It’s also been said to help reduce allergies! About 1 Tbs is perfect and can be added to any smoothie. It’s really pretty when added as a topping!
