Spring Smoothies that will make you happier and healthier!

I was never really the smoothie type. I remember being asked in while I was visiting a friend in California: “you don’t have a smoothie every day?” The question was asked in a way that made me feel as if I was a strange super old-fashioned person.

I rarely liked the conventional store bought smoothies, I always found them very sweet and they made me ravenous after 1-2 hours. However, after I learned how to make a proper breakfast smoothie, and incorporated the right ingredients, I became a smoothie lady.

Maybe green smoothies are so 5 years-ago, but these powerhouse drinks are still a life-changing addition to our diet. Now I know that some smoothies are ridiculously high in sugar, which will send your blood-sugar skyrocketing, however including the right combination of fat, fiber, greens, protein and fruit is key. So I bring you these recipes not because they are novel ideas but because they do give you all the nutrients for a good start of the day and will keep you full till lunch.

As spring season is here, I am excited to start having smoothies back in my morning routine and start the day with a powerful nutrient rich drink. For me waking up to a healthy breakfast and a positive intention is the best way to prepare myself to tackle the day.
