Protein. I skip the dairy and go for healthy hemp seed that helps make it creamy. Ground flax seed for cholesterol reducing fiber is great in a breakfast smoothie along with that whole grain oatmeal. Avocados not only make it creamy, but help your body utilize nutrients in the other green veggies used.

I put both cinnamon and a tsp of turmeric in fruit and veggie smoothies, spices that are beneficial to health. I also add several leaves of romaine or other lettuce if I don't have fresh spinach.

I use a blend of frozen blueberries and strawberries, as well as frozen peaches and mangoes. I use a cup of milk, a tablespoon or 2 of vanilla yogurt, a cup of mixed berries and a cup of mangoes/peaches. Makes a nice filling smoothie to take to work in the morning.

What do you put in your smoothie? Smoothies pairs well with fruit and vegetables, honey, small seeds, and coconut. The Eat Well Smoothie designs are healthy wholesome treats and energy boosters. Thank you.
