I love a good smoothie! Smoothies are the perfect breakfast for anyone but I especially love them because I can drink the. On the go, ensuring no how busy of a morning I have, I can start my day with a huge nutritional boost. I’ve found my favorite superfood ingredients providing both a health and yummy flavor!
HERE ARE SOME OF MY GO TO SMOOTHIE SECRET INGREDIENTS:
This amazing detoxifier is loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It can lower blood pressure, fight liver disease and lower cholesterol. Start by using only 1/4 tsp at a time, because the flavor can be strong. You may want to ease into it and find the amount that works best for your palate.
Cacao powder is what chocolate starts as before it’s processed and mixed with sugar and other ingredients. It’s filled with Polyphenols, which helps with blood flow to your brain and improves brain function. Cacao, also, has magnesium, which can help reduce stress and is great for muscle recovery- perfect for after a workout!
ARBONNE DAILY FIBER BOOST
I love Arbonne’s dedication to providing plant based products that promote a strong body, healthy mind and beautiful skin. With the Daily Fiber Boost you can get your fiber fix with 12 grams of fiber, nearly half the daily requirement. It is derived from grains, fruit and vegetables. It is a flavorless, soluble fiber that can be added to all foods and beverages - which makes it a perfect addition to ANY smoothie!
Chia seeds contain fiber, antioxidants, protein and Omega-3 fatty acids. The seeds can add texture to your smoothies taste. If you prefer you can always ground them.
One serving will give you a large dose of vitamin C and tons of unique antioxidants. This is a a ing to help build your immune system. It has a fruity flavor. Try adding about 1/2 tsp into your smoothie.
ARBONNE PROTEIN BOOST
Adding protein to your smoothie will help support a feeling of fullness, which in turn can help those on a weight management regimen.

Add a scoop to your morning or after workout smoothie.
These seeds offer 10g of plant protein per 2-3 tbsp AND they contain Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids that will fight inflammation and protect your immune system. They have somewhat of a nutty flavor and can easily added to pretty much anything!
