Healthy Smoothie Ingredients
So here is the list of 7 best healthy ingredients for for more energy in your weight loss smoothies.
1. Goji Berries
This cute looking berry is the best option for a superfood to add in a smoothie. Proven from historians, that ancient Chinese were using goji berries for their well being and good energy. Goji berries are having a ton of antioxidants and Vitamin C. It promotes good blood circulation in your body. It can add a sweet texture to your smoothies especially when you are blending leafy green in your smoothie.
2. Cocoa Nibs
If you are a fan of chocolate smoothie then try to add cocoa nibs. Don’t fall for adding chocolate bars to your smoothie. Because chocolate bars from the supermarket contain a lot of sugar and fat. This chocolate bars will mess with your mood after you drink that smoothie. But to avoid that high-calorie part add cocoa nibs instead. Cocoa nibs contain a good amount of antioxidants and natural sugar that will boost your energy. Cocoa nibs are the same as dark chocolate that’s why I try to add a very little amount to the smoothie. Otherwise, your smoothie will taste bitter.
If someone is looking for a smoothie to boost their energy then I will recommend match powder to add in it. Macha is having a higher level of caffeine than regular green tea and it is virtually a calorie-free. It is also having a higher level of important antioxidants. Definitely a top healthy smoothie ingredient.
Turmeric has the power to improve brain function and also very good for your joints. It is having natural anti-inflammatory properties and to regulate your blood sugar level.
When your blood sugar level is in control then you don’t experience the highs and lows of your energy levels. By this way, you feel energetic all day.
When it comes to vegetables they are very low in calories and high in nutrients. You must add 2 to 3 veggies to your smoothies for higher energy and low calories.
The best one is spinach. Spinach can blend smoothly with all the ingredients. when you add yummy fruits to your smoothie then you won’t taste the spinach in it and will get all the benefits of spinach too.
It is a very good idea to add water as a liquid base for your smoothie. Because when you are adding water you are cutting back on many calories and unwanted sugar. If you want to lose your weight with a certain diet. You make sure that you cut back on unwanted calories and sugar.
Water also fills the hydration part of smoothie as well. If you want creaminess in your smoothie then you can add greek yogurt or nut butter to your smoothie.
Ginger helps you to improve your digestion. By improving your digestion, your body observes nutrients from smoothie more effectively. Ginger can also help reduce muscle pain and soreness. Overall a top choice to add into your smoothie.
