Ingredients Every Smoothie Cupboard Should Have

Smoothies have been quite popular throughout last year and I think this year will be no different. We know this because a smoothie isn't just a convenient snack; it's a great way to get a collection of nutrients all in one spot.



Seeds


Seeds are a great source of good, healthy fats and insoluble fibres, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Seeds to keep on hand are flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds. For a little more roughage in your smoothie you can add in nuts like walnuts and almonds.

Honey

If you're not getting natural sweeteners from foods like fruit or coconut, raw honey is another great way to add a little sweetness to your smoothies.

Greek Yoghurt

Yoghurt will give your smoothie a thick, creamy consistency and you'll be getting a bundle of calcium and tummy-friendly probiotics, too.

Berries

They may be small but they are well-known for their rich-antioxidant properties and for their essential vitamins and minerals needed for good health. Try berries like blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries.

Fruit

Not only will fruit add sweetness to your smoothies, you'll also be getting the health benefits that come along with them, too. Incorporate fruit like bananas, apples, pears and mangoes for a delicious brekkie.

Leafy Greens

I only started to have green smoothies recently but they are every bit as good as they are made out to be. Every smoothie needs leafy greens. Add spinach or kale to get a boost of nutrients like vitamin C, iron or fibre.
