Ladies, start your engines! Or, having some trouble getting them started?? 😉 SkinnyMs. can help! Our easy-to-make and scrumptious-to-drink superfood smoothie will start your engines whether you want it to or not. And since you’re here, we’re guessing you want it to.
It’s got spinach for the requisite green -and for the good-to-have iron! And banana for the uber helpful potassium. You can use any kind of frozen berries you like and enjoy a variety of healthy benefits. We used blueberries because they look so pretty, taste so great, and pack antioxidants up the wazoo. And we can always use more antioxidants -couldn’t you??? 😉
Ginger is included in this queen of healthy smoothie recipes -so your digestion should be pleased with that. And Greek yogurt thickens things up in this superfood smoothie -not to mention adding a protein punch. A little green tea and some pomegranate juice bring even more antioxidants to the party -and frankly, what more could you ask for?
One smoothie and seven super foods. Drink up and reap the rewards!
