What we eat can truly transform our bodies and our lives in powerful ways and smoothies are one of the simplest options to add more fruits, vegetables, protein and fiber to our diet.
This Revive Green Smoothie recipe is full of many essential vitamins, minerals and good ingredients to help us thrive. Just take a look at what’s inside:
Strawberries contain high amounts of antioxidants such as anthocyanins, that keep your heart healthy by improving HDL (good) cholesterol and blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease (1).
Apples are high in dietary fiber which is important for improving your digestive health and feeding the friendly bacteria in your gut (4, 5). Fiber also helps you feel fuller longer leading to less cravings (6)!
This smoothie will boost your immune system, naturally energize you and provide you with an excellent source of fiber. Plus it’s delicious.
Grab your blender and drink up!
