A smoothie is always a delicious way to start the day, especially in the summer when we often crave refreshing options to help cool us down. Blending up a quick superfood shake can be an easy way to pack in a powerful punch of the nutrients you need to power you through your day, while helping you achieve a balanced lifestyle.
Smoothies can easily pack in a ton of sugar, but a few simple swaps (such as nut milk for juice) and add-ins (like almond butter and spinach) can lower sugar content while adding healthy fats, protein, and essential vitamins and minerals.
This quick and easy superfood smoothie recipe packs in your greens, healthy fats, and provides a big boost of antioxidants from acai and blueberries. It will help level your blood sugar and keep you satisfied, only takes a few minutes to blend up, and is perfect to grab and take on the go as you rush out the door in the morning.
