Here’s a perfect pre-workout or breakfast smoothie. Five superfoods are blended together to make one delicious, immune boosting smoothie. We call this our Big Superfood Smoothie because it is filled with five of the best foods you can eat to boost your health. If you are looking for a healthy smoothie, this is it!

We love it for a few different reasons. First, we love smoothies. Delicious smoothie recipes making eating healthy taste great. Smoothies are filled with fruits and veggies, but they taste like a special treat. Kids love smoothies because it is like drinking a fruit shake and adults love the indulgent flavor without all the calories and unhealthy ingredients.

This smoothie is also a favorite of ours because it keeps us feeling satisfied for hours. Whether your goal is to swap this smoothie for a full meal, grab a quick breakfast you can take on the road, or you want a healthy pick-me-up before a tough workout, this smoothie can help.

Finally, we love this superfood smoothie because it tastes amazing. Smoothies are one of the best tasting healthy foods available. The fruits in smoothies give these foamy drinks a sweet taste, but since there is no added sugar or processed ingredients, these drinks are great for your body. If you find it difficult to reach your fruit and vegetable goals each day, a smoothie can help.

    what is kefir?

    • SkinnyMs  March 3, 2014

      Kefir is a lot like liquid yogurt drinks. It's typically made with cows milk and fermented like yogurt, with probiotic cultures, i.e. healthy bacteria. It's good for digestion and your intestinal tract, like yogurt. It's more popular than yogurt in places like Russia.
