Now that the New Year is here, are you ready to switch gears and detox with some light, healthy smoothies? Smoothies are a terrific way to incorporate lots of nutritious ingredients into your diet. Here are 10 of my favorite healthy smoothie and smoothie bowl recipes to kick off the New Year!
While I don't usually make specific resolutions, I do think that the start of the New Year is a great time to kick off some healthy habits! For me, this means being more active, working out, getting enough sleep, and cooking lots of nutritious, balanced meals at home with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
But at times it may seem hard to get enough servings in. In a recent post, I shared my Harvest Grain Bowls. Grain bowls are a great way to incorporate nutritious ingredients like vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains in one easy dish.
Smoothies are another great vehicle to incorporate essential vitamins and minerals, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and healthy fats into your diet. Whether you're looking for a filling snack, a quick breakfast or a healthy meal on the go, there's a smoothie for you!
I personally love using my Vitamix blender when making smoothies but any high speed blender will do. For more information on creating the perfect smoothie, check out my Quick Guide to Making Smoothies.
