Live Smoothly: Smoothie Benefits and How to Get Them
No one has ever gone wrong with a smoothie. Some frozen fruit, some nuts, some greens, some milk, and a blender. This magical concoction, often distilled in the form of verdant greens, galaxy purples, supple pinks, or brash blues, is brewed in a whirlpool of flavor and tailored to the taste of creator.
Stirred-in with each smoothie is a story that expresses a hope that we can pull from each sip a dose of nutrition meant to fill us with sustenance.
But what benefits are we hoping to receive? What can we expect from different flavors and combinations? Here are 5 of the best Smoothie benefits and the best mixings to get them.
Feeling Full & Curbing Cravings
A well-crafted smoothie is loaded with nutrients. A high amount of protein means you’ll have a generally long-lasting fill-up which helps curb hunger thus reducing cravings throughout the day. Throw in bonus protein-punched ingredients like oat milk, or almonds, or flax seed or spinach to help handle the hunger.
There’s always time for a smoothie! Whether fresh and light or sweet and heavy, have a sip and everything will go smoothie.
