Smoothies are one of my favorite things to make because they don't take a long time; they can just be thrown together and sipped on the go! And yet, they're still healthy! Depending on what you put in them, they can be loaded with protein, fiber, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and of course fruits and vegetables.
Smoothies are a great way to add into your diet things you don't get enough of.
Is your problem getting enough whole grains? Add some rolled oats.
What about fiber? Add some flax or chia seeds.
Protein? Add a cup of Greek yogurt or a scoop of protein powder.
Need more greens? Add a handful of spinach or kale.
My favorite things to add into my smoothies include: chia seeds, any random fruit I have lying around the house, Greek yogurt, plant-based milk, a scoop of wheatgrass powder, a handful of fresh spinach, a handful of rolled oats, almond butter, protein powder, and pretty much all my smoothies contain bananas.
