March is Nutrition month so we visited CFRA to talk about just one thing that can set you up for a healthier year!

What can you add to a smoothie?

1. Proteins (hemp seeds, protein powder, chia seeds, greek yogurt)
2. Liquids water or ice or almond milk, coconut milk, or other milk alternatives. (Some people are sensitive to dairy)
3. Fats (avocados, coconut oil, nut butters)
4. Fruit (berries fresh or frozen), pears, apples)
5. Veggies or Greens (spinach, kale, frozen makes it more hidden)
6. Superfood add ins ( spiralling, maca root powder, cocoa or cacao- Cacao is less processed than baking cocoa)
7. *Sweetener if needed, but don’t use white sugar to sweeten a smoothie!) (dates are great choice, raw honey, stevia)

*Berries can often be enough but if you are just starting out start slow with your greens and you will find you may not even need sweetener)

Recipe from today’s segment! The lovely things about smoothies is that you can add in what you like. It’s important to try to round it out but if you just starting to add greens, start slow and increase as you make them more often! You don’t need a fancy blender, just blend for longer if you feel like it’s too chunky!
