Are you thinking of replacing your morning bread and butter with an energized green smoothie? Well, green drinks have revolutionized the way people eat breakfast or have a proper meal, in general. As the breakfast is the most vital meal of the day, it makes sense to pack this meal up with all the essential nutrients to survive your hectic day at work with a healthy smoothie!

While it might be costlier to buy smoothies regularly (come on! Everyone wants a pocket-friendly meal), you can still have it by preparing it yourself! This way you won’t have to pay for the extra charges to buy it from the store. You might think that making a green smoothie would have an added risk of the sour taste. Here’s how you can make your smooth interesting using these ingredients:

The Basic Ones

While experimenting with ingredients, you can’t forget why it’s called a ‘green’ smoothie. Adding the most basic necessary elements is the first and foremost step towards making your smoothie rich. Rich nutrient leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, rocket, and chard are the most sought-after leafy greens that make you the healthiest of smoothies. These greens are the source of rich minerals, iron, vitamins (C, B6, K, etc.) as per SuperfoodDrinks.org Athletic Greens Review.

Fruits

The idea of a pure green drink might sound very healthy but tastes very bad. You would not want to start the day with something that tastes bad while going for your workplace which is no less than hell for many. Adding fruits to your smoothie doesn’t only make it taste better but also adds much more nutrition and most importantly, the fiber to digest the nutrients properly. You can’t miss out on them.

While you can choose fruits according to your mood and taste, you can add bananas and mango to your drink, making it taste delicious. The extra benefit of adding fruits is that they act as a natural sweetening agent, so you don’t have to add sugar or any other ingredient to make it taste sweet. Cherries and raspberries also make it delicious.

Mixing It Well with Liquids

The liquid you choose also determines the taste of the smoothie you are making. While people go for fruit juices or assorted flavored liquids, it might not be the appropriate ingredient you are looking for. Milk is the healthiest liquid to make a perfectly healthy and delicious smoothie, the way you want it. If you don’t have enough milk, go for plain water instead of flavored liquids.

Proteins and Fats

For a sportsperson or a regular gym-going guy/girl, the amount of protein that you consume per day determines the muscles that you are going to gain. Proteins are of the utmost importance for muscle building. While you can go for a plain protein powder to pour into your drink, natural sources of protein such as nuts and yogurt would be much better.

On the other hand, fats are also one of the essential ingredients for healthy smoothie. People avoid fat due to the calorie-intake issue, but fats are important for many other important reasons. They help you absorb important vitamins in your body and keep your body warm in the cold.

So, everything that you need for a perfectly balanced breakfast is mentioned above. Start your healthy diet with a refreshing smoothie now!
