Bright Greens is all about making it easy to get more fruits and vegetables in your diet, but the creativity doesn’t stop there! Here are our three favorite ways to “boost” your smoothie!
“Some days you need a little more energy, so I’ll use hot green tea instead of hot water for a boost that gets me through the afternoon slump. Tastes awesome with Peaches & Green.”– Sean, Bright Greens COO
Fruits and veggies give your body what it needs to be its best, but sometimes you need a mental pick-me-up too. Sean adds hot green tea instead of water to shake up his smoothie, which adds a small amount of brain-boosting caffeine to his powerful plant nutrition. Total care for the mind and body!
“My clients are all about protein, but I stress how important it is to balance out protein with whole fruits and veggies if you want to perform your best. A small scoop of vanilla protein powder or Greek yogurt in Bright Blueberry is a great post-workout snack.”
– Steve, Personal Trainer
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Steve! While most people get enough protein in their normal diets, athletes or people exercising regularly can use the extra protein to help build lean muscle. In addition to helping build lean muscle, protein also helps you feel fuller longer, so try adding some protein powder or greek yogurt to your smoothie to make it a meal replacement and keep you going all morning!
“I really like a creamier smoothie, since it feels more like a treat. I shake up my smoothie with about half the recommended water, let it sit for a bit, then add some coconut milk or almond milk and shake it again. Creamy, delicious, but still full of wholesome goodness!”
– Marianne S., Nuclear Medicine Tech.
Marianne, we like your style! Smoothies don’t always have to be for breakfast, and mixing in some nut, soy, or coconut milk can help it feel more like a dessert or a treat. In fact, we have some vanilla almond milk in the fridge right now… How do you shake it up?
