Healthy breakfast is the key to your well-being.
Smoothie-makers have eventually hatched a bunch of non-trivial recipes that include healthy and delicious foods. Although it’s super easy to blend a smoothie, you shouldn’t throw into the mix the potentially “unmatched” products. Every ingredient of your smoothie is added for a reason, so you can both enjoy and benefit from your breakfast.
The recipe we suggest embraces a slew of healthy products that team up to fill you with essential nutrients and vitamins. For instance, bananas are good for your bones, kidney, and vessels due to the fiber, vitamin B6, and potassium. The root of ginger eases the digestion and reduces the inflammatory processes. Speaking about almonds, they are naturally protein- and minerals-rich. By adding a small quantity of almond butter to your breakfast smoothie, you have better chances to stave off hunger and even drop a few extra pounds!
Compliment your smoothie with another meaningful ingredient – hemp seeds. They are fairly considered to be rich in plant-based protein and omega-3 fatty acids. In addition to that, the whole hemp seeds are not hard on the stomach compared to other protein powders.
Finally, think about substituting high-calorie smoothie base (e.g., coconut water, juice, nut milk, or yogurt) with plain water. It gives your body a lot of benefits: additional hydration, light digestion, and fat burning.
This recipe of Almond Ginger Monkey Smoothie makes 1 serving, which is good enough to tame hunger while eating (or sipping?) a light breakfast.
The things you will need:
- ⋅ 2 frozen bananas
- ⋅ 1 piece of peeled ginger, about an inch size
- ⋅ 1 tbsp of organic raw almond butter (or a quarter cup of raw almonds)
- ⋅ 3 tbsp of hemp seeds (not powder)
- ⋅ 2 cups of water
Use a high-speed blender to mix together all the ingredients until they’re well-combined.
If you rave about an extra-creamy smoothie, use overripe bananas. Peel them, cut into quarters or smaller pieces, place into a zip bag, and freeze for later.
