We’re all on a path to stay active, confident, and healthy throughout our lives. And a great way to add some brightness, sweetness, and health to our day is by whipping up a delicious smoothie! Especially with fall and winter right around the corner, we want to load up on nutrients and immune-nourishing foods. Whether you start your morning with a green smoothie or treat yourself to a tropic treat, smoothies can be a perfect addition to your diet during the fall and winter months. Of course, choosing the right ingredients is key when the goal is to support overall health. Yeah, we all love a good peanut butter chocolate deluxe milkshake now and then, but that isn’t our goal here! Aim to pick nutrient-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, and plant-based milk to provide your body with essential vitamins, minerals and more to stay in good health. Alongside these immunity-supporting recipes, remember to get good sleep and practice other healthy lifestyle habits!
Banana Berry Peanut Butter Smoothie
This sweet and fruity smoothie is packed with fiber and calcium and is a great way to add vegetables into your day. Pair it with yogurt and peanut butter for protein and your taste buds will thank you! Add a banana, strawberries, broccoli (surprise!), yogurt, peanut butter, and a splash of water. Blend until smooth and enjoy! You might be surprised to read that broccoli is in this one, but it actually contains almost 80 mg of vitamin C- that’s more than a medium-sized orange!
