Smoothies are a great solution for those looking for quick and easy ways to get some extra nutrients out of juice…
No but seriously, those who have mastered the art of disguising veggies or proteins in their smoothies without compromising their taste are genius!
You might wonder why someone would opt for veggies, but did you know that smoothies made of fruits and vegetables can help you get lots of fibers while keeping your sugar intake to a minimum? That’s right! But you can even go one step further…
The smoothie we are about to introduce you to is a fantastic way to trick your kids, partner or even yourself into drinking a delicious smoothie, while receiving all the nutrients they usually fuss about… A healthy dessert for breakfast and actual dessert later on in the day — the true definition of treating yourself!
Still not convinced? Here’s a quick break down of our “Immune Boosting Smoothie” a.k.a the Berry Turmeric Smoothie.
