How to Make Tasty and Energizing Smoothies

Smoothies are a great on-the-go breakfast option because they're quick and easy to prepare. Most smoothie recipes tend to stick to healthy and fresh ingredients that taste great and help keep you feeling well. However, if you feel like you lose your energy too quickly throughout your morning, Great Harvest of Nashua has some energizing smoothie ingredients you can add into your normal recipe.

Throw in Some Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a popular add-on for many drinks and meals because they don't have much of a flavor and combine well with just about everything. When added to the blender with your smoothie ingredients, they tend to thicken up your smoothie. These tiny seeds provide a great source of protein and essential fatty acids. They are sure to give you more energy to make it through the workday.

Try Some Camu-Camu

If you haven't heard of camu-camu, don't fret, most people haven't either. It's not the most common of fruits, but it does carry huge nutritional value. This tropical fruit is full of antioxidants and it has tons more vitamin C than an orange. It also contains healthy servings of potassium, protein and calcium. The fruit can be a bit tart, but a small portion of teaspoon is more than enough for a one serving smoothie. Try adding it to your favorite fruit smoothies.

Say Yes to Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass is known for its detoxifying properties, but it can also provide you with more energy. It has tons of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Wheatgrass will not only give you more energy, it will also boost your immune function. It goes great with spinach or added into fruit smoothies. Once you have your breakfast smoothie taken care of, why not prepare a delicious vegan panini for lunch?
