Smoothies are thick shake type drinks filled with nutrients that you wouldn’t want to miss. They are made mainly from fruits and vegetables, and of course you know what that means; a pool of body enriching nutrients!
Ever wondered whether smoothies have any health benefits at all to the body? Well, below are a few health benefits of smoothies before we get started:
- Smoothies help keep you hydrated
- They are a good source of body enriching minerals
- They make a healthy breakfast
- Smoothies are better than multi-vitamins
Preparing smoothies daily is something that is virtually feasible as it may be time consuming especially for the tightly scheduled dudes who have little or no time to start putting ingredients into the blender early in the morning. I dodge this mishap by creating a week’s worth of smoothie. How do you do this?
- Start by gathering all the ingredients you will need to make a week’s worth of smoothies
- Get your containers ready
- Blend ingredients
- Pour into your container
- Repeat process until all containers are full
- Put in the freezer
Simple right! But with the above steps you are guaranteed of a steady supply of smoothie for up to a week. And what’s more? Smoothies stay uncontaminated!
Now you must be wondering what smoothies to make to start off that refreshing day. Well, below are some smoothies that will not only help replace that time consuming breakfast, but also boost your body’s metabolism along with numerous health benefits.
