Smoothie Boosters

smoothieSmoothies are a decadent treat for me—especially on warmer days!?! Or when my freezer is FULL of fresh fruits that have been frozen for Smoothie Saturdays or Smoothie Soothers for busy work days by the laptop!?!

Smoothies are deeply satisfying and can be boosted with special ingredients to keep you going for hours!

Use 1/2 cup of Greek Yogurt: Adds 10 grams of protein. Substituting Greek yogurt for regular yogurt can help keep you fuller longer. It has more calcium, too.

Rolled oats adds additional fiber and protein to fill you up and give you energy.

Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, which may help lower cholesterol levels, and are packed with nutrients–fiber, riboflavin, magnesium, iron and calcium.

Cottage Cheese is a good source of protein and calcium.

Don’t forget about Kefir too! It’s a great item to add into your smoothies and/or chia seeds!

What do you use in your homemade smoothies!?!
