I haven’t had a fruit smoothie in a while so I decided to make one this morning!
Here are the ingredients and their benefits:
-Strawberries: contains vitamin C which is great for immune system and skin health
-Bananas: contains vitamin B6 which helps maintain a healthy immune system, contains potassium which helps control high blood pressure
-Kiwi: helps reduce blood clotting, aids in better digestion
Maca powder: boosts energy and endurance
Chia seeds: has high fiber and protein content
Greek yogurt: contains probiotics for better gut health
Spring mix greens: rich in folic acid, iron, and vitamins A, C, K, and B6
Black seed oil: high in antioxidants and may lower blood sugar levels
I added a handful of strawberries, one banana, one kiwi, 1/2 cup of greek yogurt, 1 tsp of chia seeds, 1 tsp Maca powder, 1/4 tsp black seed oil(has a very strong taste so be careful lol), a handful of spring mix greens, and a little water to help everything blend well!
I’ve never tried this combo before but it was pretty good!
