(GoHealthier.com) – For those wanting to live a healthier lifestyle, there is a simple solution. Get into making smoothies. Loaded with veggies and tasty fruits, this tantalizing drink features vitamins and fiber. Fiber is beneficial because it lowers the risk of chronic illnesses and boosts immunity. Check out some of these tasty combos and add them to a daily routine.
1. Strawberries and Cream
Who doesn’t love the tartness of strawberries coupled with smooth, sweet, creamy goodness? This strawberries and cream smoothie is a delight to the senses and the immune system. Strawberries are full of antioxidants, like vitamin C and flavonoids, folic acid and fiber. Coconut milk is a key ingredient. Coconuts contain lauric acid, which boosts immunity. It also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties.
2. Chocolate Hazelnut
This smoothie is more like a delectable dessert rather than a health drink. But it serves as both. It curbs appetite, helping us to stay in shape without getting sleepy. Packed with nutrients, the key ingredient, oats, helps fight illness and boost infection-fighting blood cells. It’s actually an immune-system booster due to the beta-glucan found inside. It’s thick, filling and has a touch of coffee and hazelnut. Perfect for a busy morning on the go.
3. Paleo Yogurt and Granola
One of the heartiest, healthiest smoothies we’ve found is the Paleo Yogurt and Granola. This recipe is chock-full of healthy immune-fighting ingredients, such as bananas, protein powder and coconut yogurt.
It’s easy to transport and we can eat it any time of the day for a quick pick-me-up. Keep granola separate until ready to eat to keep it from getting soggy.
4. Chocolate Coconut Banana
This is a super tasty smoothie recipe that might entice younger eaters, also. Most kids love bananas and chocolate, and they may reach for this as a breakfast boost. It’s a superb immune booster, too.
Antioxidant-rich dark chocolate is known to enhance blood flow, ease stress, and strengthen the immune system. This tasty beverage is a great way to fight off common bugs and viruses that kids contact in school, sports or daycare.
5. Avocado Berry
The avocado berry smoothie is the perfect start to the day or a great workout. When we’re feeling run down, it may help restore energy and fight off those pesky viruses and illnesses. The core recipe calls for spinach, organic milk, avocado, and mixed berries.
The berries supercharge the immune system, giving it nutrients that may fight off any unwanted germs and bacteria. The superfood of smoothies, this is one to try.
Not everyone is a breakfast person. But when we can grab a healthy meal to go, it makes a world of difference in how we start the day. So if eggs and a dry bagel just don’t sound satisfying enough, consider whipping up a tasty smoothie. Don’t be afraid to mix and match ingredients. The result will be an immune-boosting tasty treat that could fuel the entire day!
