5 Superfoods To Give Your Smoothie A Boost
Looking for a boost to get you through the day? While we always recommend a smoothie, we also know there are days when you need something a little extra (or should we say, super) to get you going. That’s why we love adding these superfoods to our Thrive! smoothies! Some of the ingredients are in our smoothies already, while others make the perfect finishing touch. Try it out for yourself!
Avocado — This superfood is full of healthy fats and oils that can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and so much more. An added bonus? Avocado will make your smoothie thick, creamy, and totally delicious!
Matcha tea — Matcha will not only give your smoothie an energy boost, but its powerful antioxidant levels will also help reduce inflammation in your body and fight against chronic disease.
Flax seeds — Adding flax seeds to your Thrive! Smoothies will pack a powerful punch in a small package! Rich in fiber, omega-3s, and high-quality protein, they’re one of the easiest ways to boost your nutrients without changing the flavor of your favorite drink.
Spinach — Dark greens like spinach are considered a superfood because of the amount of nutrients they contain. Get a heaping serving of folate, zinc, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin C and fiber, just to name a few, by adding a handful of spinach to your Thrive! smoothie!
Ginger — Ginger is a superfood with several different benefits. Whether you are looking to manage your digestion or you want to reduce inflammation and chronic pain in your body, ginger is a powerful natural healer!
