Sometimes simple is best! This is one of my “go to” smoothies for a fresh start to the day. It’s loaded with nutrients that leave you feeling full of energy and packed with antioxidants to boost your beauty!
Strawberry Plant is low in sugar, yet super satisfying due to the cacao and digestive greens additions!
Cacao is full of magnesium, antioxidants; one in particular, theobromine which produces that “feel good feeling” you get when eating chocolate; yet contains no added sugar, dairy or fillers! Antioxidants are important to add to your nutrition for fighting off free radicals and toxins that we come across in our day-to-day.
The digestive mix added to this smoothie is by The Natural Citizen, which boasts a wonderful nutrient profile, with things like chia seeds, aloe vera and artichoke; all which contain a fiber called inulin – important for maintaining healthy gut bacteria.
The avocado provides you with a good amount of healthy fats and is packed with fiber; both to help satisfy your hunger levels and keep you fuller longer – besides the fact that it makes it super-duper creamy and dreamy! #ToDieFor
The spinach gives you a servings of greens (never enough of those) and is full of vitamin A, as well as iron for red blood cell benefits.
Last but certainly not least – STRAWBERRIES!
Strawberries, amongst most other berries, are low in sugar content, yet still give you a taste of sweetness. They’re packed with vitamin C for glowing skin and sending your immune system into overdrive! Sign me up!!
