So this weeks fast facts post is dedicated to smoothies and things you might not have known about them.
1. A smoothie is a drink constructed from whole ingredients that are pulped and blended together, so you get the nutrients gradually. Not to be confused with a juice. A juice is such juice, nothing else.
2. You can add boosters to your smoothies, like protein, or a superfood. Examples of superfood boosters are:
Maca powder, blueberries, Kale, Coconut Water, Chia Seeds.
3. Smoothies can be full of your daily allowance of fruit and vegetables.
They are a great way to get all your veggies and fruits -so pack 'em in!
